I haven't seen any photos of these two side-by-side. Although, I guess Canada is the only market that sells both?
So for anyone who ever wanted to compare the two, my gift to you;
I can kinda see why they're not offering the Trax south of the boarder. Would be redundant to offer a 'shorter Equinox', for a segment that isn't exactly the most popular. Smarter to let the Encore have it's individuality.
It will be interesting when they merge these two into a single vehicle come their next generations.
