Would You Recommend the 2019 Chevrolet


The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu has always been a preferable sedan for most people, who are attracted by its styling, satisfied with its quiet demeanor, and entertained by its excellent infotainment software. As a mid-size sedan, the 2019 year model of the Chevrolet Malibu elevates the overall driving and riding experience that helped it make good sales at the counter.

To check out the entire lineup of the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu, we visited the Hartselle Chevrolet dealer showroom and explored the trims L, LS, LT, and Premier.

2019 Gains

For the year 2019, Chevrolet has assigned its flagship model Malibu a new transmission on almost every trim model, along with an RS appearance package that enables few styling revisions on the trims like L, LS, LT, and Premier.

New Style Statement

This new getup suited the Malibu quite well as the sedan with the right curves and lines placed in all the strategic places were asking for something more. Hence it gets the grille stretched wider a bit with a few chrome lines running into the line of squinting headlights. The large sized side windows carved along a sloping roofline though give the sedan a hatchback impression, the sedan style is restored back with a tapered tail.

Cabin Comfort

In contrast to its exquisite exterior styling the 2019 Malibu chose to keep its cabin humble. The only feature highlights in it will be the standard 8.0-inch touchscreen for the infotainment purpose that is well-integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. There are few more tech features on the connectivity wing like mobile wi-fi hotspots with plenty of USB outlets and a wireless charging pad, while the GMC OnStar maintains the safety telematics well.

Under the Hood

Under the hood, the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu drives with a 1.5-liter turbo-4 rated engine that raises the horsepower at 163 when paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and this powertrain combination stands as standard. The transmission really does a good job in perfect tune with the turbo engine, with the help of its simulated “gears”.

You can also opt for a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine if the 250 hp allures you along with a splendid acceleration and handling as it is given the exclusive benefits to be fitted with a 9-speed automatic transmission.

The Hybrid version of the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu engage a non-turbo 1.8-liter inline-4 engine paired to a lithium-ion battery that run the electric motor to get an EPA rating of 46 mpg in a combined drive and as a hybrid powertrain the 182 horsepower it makes is quite respectful.

Overall Performance

At the Hartselle Chevrolet dealership we got enough scope to explore the entire 2019 lineup of Chevrolet Malibu. All the trims delivered commendable rides and made us feel happy with obedient handling. Thanks to the prompt response of the steering that reacts accurately to the driver inputs. The effect can be observed in the rides that are tuned to maintain the calm and quiet of the cabin and focuses more on comfort than anything else.
