Auto Experts Love the Roomy and Versatile 2017 Chevy Traverse
2017 Chevy Traverse reviews are unanimous! This roomy and versatile SUV is ideal for families who need a lot of interior space for passengers and cargo but don’t want a massive SUV or minivan. The Chevy Traverse maximizes space, convenience, and flexibility, while remaining lightweight, agile, and fuel-efficient.
Works Hard, Looks Great
The 2017 Chevy Traverse just gets things done and done right. It has room for up to eight passengers, best-in-class cargo space, and tons of active safety technologies, along with a stylish design. Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com comments that although the Traverse has ride height and interior space similar to the larger Tahoe, its handling and sedan-like feel make it much easier to maneuver. According to Autobytel, the Traverse achieves its size and space by its unibody construction, which is more like a car than a truck. As a result, it sacrifices off-road and towing features that are rarely used with crossovers anyway to its advantage. Edmunds.com calls the Traverse’s handling smooth and pleasant, while noting that its plentiful features make it a great value buy.
Car Gurus – “And even with all three rows deployed, the Traverse offers 24.4 cubic feet of cargo area. Compare that to a Chevy Malibu’s 15.8 cubic feet of trunk space and you see why families are rapidly migrating to crossovers. Dropping the second and third rows of seats gives you whopping 116.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity. If you think the Chevy Tahoe SUV is a larger vehicle, consider this: its cargo capacity is only 94.1 cubic feet with the second and third seats stowed.”
Edmunds.com – “Elsewhere, the Chevy Traverse’s cabin gets generally high marks thanks to a handsome design and good quality materials…” “Other advantages to buying a Traverse include a comfortable ride and top scores in government and insurance industry crash tests.”
TRUECar – “One of the big pluses of the Traverse’s interior is the seating room. Unlike in many other crossovers with three rows, there’s actual space on all three rows if you slide the second row seats up. Granted, the rear seats probably still won’t accommodate adults, but they are sufficient for children. Cargo capacity is excellent for a crossover, with 24.4 cubic feet of storage with all three rows up.”
