Get Some Extra Attention in a 2019 Chevy Malibu

By Justin Cupler | August 13th, 2018

The updated 2019 Chevrolet Malibu is more than your boring commuter car. It’s an efficient and tech-friendly midsize sedan with a stylish look that loves attention. The new Malibu boasts a more assertive front end, new color options, and available blacked-out emblems on the outside, plus an available leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather-wrapped shifter, and black cloth seats on the inside. What’s not to love about a car that looks as good as it performs?

The Chevy Malibu comes in five trims — L, LS, RS, LT, and Premier — and all but the high-end Premier come standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine that produces 163 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. This powertrain pairs with a continuously variable transmission for smooth, even acceleration. On the Premier trim, you’ll enjoy a 2-liter turbocharged engine with a nine-speed auto transmission that delivers 250 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.

If you’re looking for something a little more than just your basic 2019 Malibu, the RS trim offers a sleek and racy aesthetic thanks to the blacked-out exterior details like a black sport grille and bowtie emblems, a rear spoiler, 18-inch wheels, and dual-outlet exhaust. Or ease your dependence on gasoline and choose the Malibu Hybrid with its hybrid powertrain that pairs a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine to a pair of electric motors for a combined 182 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. It also has exclusive features like the driver efficiency gauge to help it get 43 mpg city and 49 highway.

2019 Malibu Premier and 2019 Malibu RS: Updated styling across the lineup — led by the first-ever RS trim — introduces additional choices to the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu and improves its presence.

The new Chevrolet Malibu comes with a host of standard features like keyless entry and ignition to streamline your commute. The standard rear-seat reminder helps you keep track of important cargo and the rearview camera helps you back up flawlessly. But when you want a little more tech in your cabin, upgrade to the LS trim or higher for standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Plus, the available wireless charging allows you to stay juiced up and ready to go without cluttering your cockpit with cables.

For families looking to help teach safe driving habits to new drivers, the Teen Driver feature is standard on LS trims and higher. You can get trip report cards, set volume limits, and speed alerts to promote safe driving. This hands-on teaching tool also automatically turns on the available active safety technologies like blind-zone alert, forward collision alert and automatic emergency braking.

2019 Malibu Premier’s new rear valance pushes the dual-exhaust outlets farther toward the corners, emphasizing the car’s width, while new taillamps deliver a more dramatic execution of Chevrolet’s signature dual-element design.
