The Chevrolet Malibu has become one of the best-selling family cars in America. Drivers love its sporty handling and punchy performance. For the 2019 model year, Chevy made some key updates to its popular midsize sedan. Not only does the 2019 Chevy Malibu offer a sporty RS trim, but it also benefits from Chevy’s next-generation infotainment system. Refreshed exterior styling makes the new Malibu even more exciting.


  • • Both models come standard with the same turbocharged four-cylinder engine, developing 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.
  • • A new continuous variable transmission arrives for 2019.
  • • A more powerful 2.0-liter engine remains under the hood of the Premier model

The new 2019 Chevrolet Malibu comes equipped with the same base engine as before. You can look forward to experiencing a great blend of power and efficiency. For 2019, Chevy has replaced last year’s six-speed automatic transmission with a new CVT. This change seeks to improve the Malibu’s already impressive fuel economy. Drivers seeking enhanced performance should check out the Premier model. Its larger turbocharged four-cylinder engine develops an exciting 250 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Unlike the other trims, the Malibu Premier uses a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Exterior and Interior

  • • Styling has been updated for 2019.
  • • Interior space remains the same.
  • • All-new infotainment system arrives for 2019.
  • • Rear Vision backup camera now comes standard.

New headlights and taillights give the 2019 Malibu a sharper look. Chevy has also introduced a new RS appearance package, which features a blacked-out grille and special set of 18-in. wheels. The 2019 and 2018 models provide the same amount of interior room, but you can take advantage of the 2019's 15.8 cu-ft. trunk. While the 2018 Chevy features a MyLink infotainment system, the 2019 comes with the new Infotainment 3. Aside from providing AppleCarPlay and Android Auto, this new interface responds to swiping gestures. Furthermore, every driver will now benefit from a rear-view camera.


  • • Expected to earn another five-star overall safety rating.
  • • Driver Confidence packages remain options.

Like the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu, the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu is expected to receive a perfect safety rating from the NHTSA. This means your family will enjoy class-leading crash protection. If you’re looking to enjoy a heightened sense of awareness on the road, Chevy gives you two advanced safety packages to choose from. While the Driver Confidence provides innovations such as blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, the Driver Confidence II package aids technologies like forward collision warning and front pedestrian braking.
