You’ve seen the Chevrolet Trax, which will premiere in Paris in September. Here’s what the new small SUV set to roll off from GM Korea will look like badged with a Holden grille.

Australia is set to get the five-seater – which sits on a GM Gamma II platform also worn by the Opel and Vauxhall versions of the Mokka as well as the Buick Encore – in 2013, one of the 140 markets worldwide that the vehicle will be sold in. Still no details about the Trax, but expect to see powertrains and equipment levels close to that found on the Mokka.

Eagled-eyed Oz folk might be able to catch a glimpse of what’s in store ahead of the arrival, because Trax development mules are on Australian roads – Holden’s expertise in engine and transmission calibration has been called upon as part of the completion of development work on the global program.
