2019 Chevrolet Malibu Review

Overview
The Chevrolet Malibu is on a mission to change the way you see midsize sedans. The sleek-looking sporty-riding Malibu offers fuel economy a full suite of safety features and all the technology you need to stay connected. Choose from six trim levels starting with the L and moving through the top-of-the-line Premier. Take calls and change radio stations using your voice or the touch-screen with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is included. Get more out of every gallon of gas in a Malibu Hybrid. A 1.8-liter gas engine combines with two electric motors to offer up to an EPA-estimated 49 miles per gallon. And with the Driver Efficiency Gauge gas-saving driving habits become normal. All Malibus come with ten airbags4 and a high-strength steel frame. And electronic stability control and four-wheel antilock brakes. Available Driver Confidence packages add features like Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning Forward Automatic Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a Malibu that’s all yours. The Chevrolet Malibu. You can have it all!
Technology
Your Chevrolet Malibu is loaded with technology. Coffee shop Wi-Fi is history with the Malibu’s available Abuilt-in 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. Connect up to seven devices and surf away. Chevrolet Infotainment 3 brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility to a color touchscreen display. Access your Malibu even when you’re not in it. With the myChevrolet Mobile App you can control door locks and more from almost anywhere. Available Sirius XM Satellite Radio brings you more than a hundred and fifty channels of music news sports and more. The Chevrolet Malibu. Stay connected.
Safety
With its available advanced safety and driver assistance features your Chevrolet Malibu can help you avoid trouble. Something catches your attention and you don’t see the car in front of you stopping. But available Forward Collision Alert does and alerts you to the slowing vehicle in your path. We’ve all accidentally drifted out of our lane now and then. Available Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning gives audible and visual alerts and can even help steer you back. The Chevrolet Malibu. Mid-size sedan. Big-size safety.
Performance
With three different powertrains available the Chevrolet Malibu delivers a variety of responsive and efficient driving experiences. A turbocharged 1.5-liter ECOTEC engine with fuel-saving technologies like Variable Valve Timing and Automatic Stop-Start delivers an impressive EPA-estimated 36 miles per gallon on the highway. If you want more power get the B250-horse two-liter ECOTEC engine and its nine-speed automatic transmission. Or for better fuel economy go for the hybrid Malibu. It gets up to an EPA-estimated 49 miles per gallon in the city. The Chevrolet Malibu. Built just for you.
