The 2024 Chevrolet Trax starts below $22,000.

The Chevrolet Trax emerged as the standout winner of Cars.com's Best Car of 2024 award, lauded for its blend of quality, innovation and value.

"The affordably priced Chevrolet Trax is a Best Of newcomer, hitting the trifecta of quality, innovation and great value," said Jenni Newman, Cars.com editor in chief. Despite its lower price tag compared to last year's model, the Trax does not skimp on enhanced features, offering a compelling proposition to budget-conscious shoppers.

With a starting price of $21,495, the Chevrolet Trax stands out in a market where only 12% of new cars are priced under $30,000, at a time when nearly half of car shoppers are planning to spend less than $30,000 on their next vehicle purchase. This pricing strategy places the Trax in a sweet spot for a significant portion of the car-buying public.

Cars.com's Best Of Awards for 2024 also recognized excellence across other categories, highlighting vehicles that deliver a mix of user-friendly technology, affordability and overall quality. The Ford F-Series Super Duty was named Best Pickup Truck for its innovative towing technology and robust powertrains. The Hyundai IONIQ 5 retained its title as the Best Electric Vehicle, thanks to its balanced combination of technology, charging speed and ride quality. The Jeep Wrangler, including the Wrangler 4xe, took home the Best SUV award for its off-road capability and everyday utility. In the luxury segment, the Genesis Electrified GV70 was recognized as the Best Luxury Car for its dynamic performance and quick charging capabilities, while the Kia Telluride was awarded Best Family Car for its spaciousness, safety features and overall value.

The award winners are available for review on Cars.com and through its app. Shoppers can identify the "2024 Award Winner" badge on vehicle profiles to easily find these top-rated cars.

Cars.com's award methodology is based on three key criteria: quality, innovation and value. The Best Of Awards program spans six categories, considering all 2024 model-year vehicles for these distinctions.
