Concord Chevrolet Shoppers First Look At The 2019 Chevy Malibu
A number of important updates were made to the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu. Concord Chevrolet drivers will love this midsize sedan’s refreshed exterior styling and all-new Infotainment 3 interface. You can choose from a total of five trims: L, LS, LT, RS and Premier.
The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu returns with the same engine lineup. Most Concord Chevrolet shoppers will be looking at the base 1.5-liter turbocharged Ecotec four-cylinder engine. It’s tuned to develop a competitive 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Paired to the base engine is a new CVT, which improves fuel economy to an EPA-estimated 29 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.*
If you desire an even stronger kick under the hood, step up to the Malibu Premier. Chevy equips it with a larger 2.0-liter turbocharged Ecotec engine. Output stands at an impressive 250 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission aids the sedan’s snappy acceleration. In regard to fuel economy, anticipate getting an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway.
A well-tuned suspension makes the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu especially enjoyable to drive. You can look forward to experiencing a comfortable ride and athletic handling. The Malibu’s responsive steering system also inspires drivers with confidence.
The Malibu’s sleek design has helped it to remain one of the most stylish cars in the segment. To elevate the sedan’s sculpted exterior, Chevy has updated the 2019 model by installing a new front and rear fascia. While even the base Malibu will turn heads, several appearance upgrades are found on the upper trims. Drivers who desire a sportier look should check out the all-new RS trim. Dual exposed exhaust outlets and a slick set of 18-inch black wheels help it to make a bold statement. Some of the eye-catching exterior colors include Silver Ice Metallic, Cajun Red Tintcoat and Mosaic Black Metallic.
On the inside, the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu is focused on providing a comfortable atmosphere for families. There’s enough room for up to five passengers. Available heated/ventilated front seats and heated outboard rear seats promise to make your drive a bit more relaxing. Even the base model comes loaded with high-tech goodies. Featuring an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, the standard Infotainment 3 interface is quicker than ever. You can also take advantage of the 4G LTE connection with Wi-Fi, which can support up to seven devices at once. Meanwhile, an available nine-speaker Bose sound system seeks to excite music fans. A wireless charging pad and remote start are also available on the new Malibu.
In terms of impact protection, the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu ranks among the class leaders. It’s expected to yet again earn a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. A number of valuable safety features are available. Parents will be thankful for the standard Teen Driver system, which eases worry by monitoring their child’s driving habits. OnStar provides around-the-clock emergency support and automatic crash notification. Available driver-assist technologies include forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and lane-keep assist.
