Jaidah Automotive, a subsidiary of Jaidah Group, and the exclusive dealer of Chevrolet branded motors in Qatar – introduced the 2015 Chevrolet Trax, the all new version of the brand’s line of upcoming small size SUVs.
The unveiling of the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Trax to the Qatari market took place at the Intercontinental Hotel and was attended by Mohamed Jaidah, Executive Director of Jaidah Group, Khaled Samir, Director of Operations of Jaidah Automotive, Khaled Hassan, MD of Jaidah Automotive and Bader El Houssami.

We are excited to present the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Trax. With its contemporary and vastly versatile features, we’re sure that it’s going to significantly expand Chevrolet’s customer base in the Qatari market.’
Chevrolet Trax was developed based on General Motors’ 79 years of experience in building SUVs. The car has a well-organised, flexible and practical interior that is sufficient for the modern family. It includes an AWD for off-road adventures, and runs on low fuel consumption, while still maintaining the strength of an ordinary SUV.
Trax gives buyers many of the benefits of a SUV while combining the driving dynamics and fuel economy of a smaller car, making it a highly desired choice for Doha residents.
Director of Operations at Jaidah Automotive, Khaled Samir, said:
The new small SUV Chevrolet Trax is one of a kind, with various functionalities, refined interior, and a range of advanced technology to suit our current year and age. We hope that it will appeal to a caliber of people who seek practicality yet posses class.’
The new compact SUV offers four comfortable seating combinations, and plenty of smart storage space such as the dual glove box. It also allows owners to use Chevrolet’s “MyLink” infotainment system that integrates a smartphone with the car, can easily access playlists, phone books, photo galleries, and includes apps such as TuneIn radio; all to ensure the users’ constant connectivity.
