The 2019 Malibu is easily recognized by its brand new front- and rear-end styling. In addition to its new good looks, this sedan also features a new continuously variable transmission for its base engine, designed to improve fuel economy and deliver a smooth, comfortable ride. The newly upgraded infotainment system is another huge benefit. Its intuitive menus and responsive controls help you easily stay connected without being distracted from traffic.
Which Features are Available on the Malibu in 2019?
There are five Chevy Malibu trims available: the L, LS, RS, LT, and Premier. Which one is right for you? That all depends on what you want out of your ride and how much you’re willing to spend.
The base L gives you the best deal as far as up-front costs are concerned. And it’s also nicely loaded with comfort and convenience features, so you won’t feel left behind. The Malibu L OnStar emergency telematics system helps you stay safe, bringing features like on-demand roadside assistance and automatic collision notification. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also standard equipment, displaying smartphone apps on the 8-inch central touchscreen so you can use them without looking away from the road.
For a little more modern technology, upgrade to the Malibu LS. It includes the Teen Driver system, which lets parents set geofence boundaries and curfew alerts for newly licensed young drivers. The 4G LTE Wi-Fi system is another boon, letting younger passengers connect devices to the internet and stream Netflix on long trips.
In the Malibu RS, you’ll find a lot of exclusive styling features. It’s definitely the sportiest model of the bunch, with dual exhaust tips and black 18-inch alloy wheels. The spoiler and blacked-out exterior trim pieces also set it apart from the other Malibu models. Inside, the RS treats you to extra comfort with an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat with power lumbar adjustments.
Check out the Malibu LT for a lengthy list of modern features. Use the remote start technology to crank up the air conditioning from afar. Heated mirrors and LED daytime running lights help you see and be seen. Inside, dual-zone climate controls set two different temperatures for driver and passenger, so both can enjoy their own comfort zone.
The top-trim Premier is fully loaded with high-end comfort and convenience features. In addition to leather upholstery and ventilated front seats, the nine-speaker Bose premium stereo system upgrades your daily drive. This model also features a 120-volt power outlet, so you can keep large devices fully charged and ready for action.
Choose from two Malibu engines. The turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine is standard equipment. It produces 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque for smooth acceleration onto the highway. If you prefer a little extra zest, check out the optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It boosts output to 250 horses and 260 pound-feet of torque, giving you the confidence you need to pass slower drivers.
Powerful Safety Technologies for 2019
This sleek modern sedan can even warn you of oncoming danger. Add the Driver Confidence package for high-tech safety features like blind-spot monitoring. If you do a lot of highway driving, this technology comes in handy, helping you switch lanes safely. When you tack on the Driver Confidence II package, your Malibu also features lane keeping assist and forward collision alert, further keeping you from harm.
