Interesting read, I wonder if the turbo engine in the Trax contributes to the performance issues he saw. If I'm not mistaken you really need to rev a turbo engine to get the most out of it, and for this type of car you might not get the engine going that high on the RPMs that often. Hopefully the non-turbo HR-V will perform better under "normal" driving conditions.

If the trax drives like it's sister car the buick encore than performance was fine for me on the test drive. I just couldn't get past the headrests which were not adjustable and pushed my head too far forward and the wide a pillars. I kept leaning forward to see around them when making a turn. Not much foot room in the back seat and a short cargo area. Quiet and comfortable (except for the headrest), poor visibility, low mpg for its size and disappointing passenger and cargo area.

it looks like for us to really tell what increase in performance the turbo might add, we'll have to look at a dyno chart.

but in a vehicle like this, turbo is mainly for MPG's
