For the 2019 edition Chevrolet has equipped the Malibu with a handful of positive changes that includes a new transmission for almost every trim model, a new RS appearance package that weaves in a light touch of styling revisions applied on all trims.
The new appearance package worked really well on the 2019 Malibu, with the new lines and curves placed and stretched at the right places. When you see the 2019 Malibu approaching you, the front grille stretches extra wide with a couple of exquisite chrome lines running towards the squinting headlights, while the large side windows make a grand visibility even for the rear seat passengers. The sloping roofline completes the look while giving the sedan a slightly hatchback touch, that is further highlighted by a signature tapered tail.

Power and Performance
Under the hood, the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu runs on a 1.5-liter turbo-4 rated engine that can crank a 163 of horsepower after pairing with the new continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The transmission perfectly works with the turbo charged engine with simulated “gears” that helped in eliminating the rubber band feel that was a part of the older CVTs.
At the Chevrolet dealer near Smithfield we were told that one can also opt for a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine that is offered by Chevrolet as an option. It makes 250 of hp and endows this beautiful sedan with excellently smooth acceleration. All the trim levels of 2019 Malibu ride and handle equally well. Thanks to the quickly responsive and accurately acting steering that make each ride turn more towards comfort than encouraging the sporty spirit.
