It seems that with the imminent launch of 2019 Chevrolet Malibu, it may well get a mini makeover of sorts; finally, a launch that may well see new features being introduced and even with a few design changes. Got to admit that news cheered us up a lot and naturally, the moment the news broke out we started our scavenger hunt for more information on the new model. Finally, we got enough to go on and prep this review for your convenience; so guess it’s time that we took a closer look at this new model, right?
With the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu, it seems that the new model will do a lot more than carry forward the same design as last year. The mid-sized sedan will sport a new look and that’s certainly true especially as the leaked images do prove the same. We do hope that the same changes will carry forward to the interior and under the hood as well. The new model comes with L, LS, RS, LT, and Premier trim levels and with a hybrid to be introduced later on. One thing is for sure, Malibu does bring about more than a few changes despite the fact that the current mode is in mid-lifecycle and is not due for a major redesign ‘till later.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu comes with an updated look and that’s got to be an understatement; the new model comes with a much more prominent grille with a chrome bar splitting the grille into two; it certainly stands out for the right reasons. The chrome accents extend to the LED headlights on the front which have also been restyled and together with the tweaked front fascia along with the front bumper, that concludes the changes on the front.
The side panels come with better contouring, as well as a rear spoiler at the rear with retuned rear fascia, and restyled Tail lights as well. It also comes with dual exhausts which have been pushed to the edges at the rear so as to accentuate the car’s width. The new model also comes with a choice of 16, 17 and 18-inch wheels depending on the trim that you are going for along with a curvy body and a slightly sloping roofline which makes the car seem perfect.
The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu comes with a slightly revamped interior and is as spacious as ever on the inside. It also comes with plush leather seats as well as cloth fabric for the upholstery along with power seats, heated and cooled driver’s seat, power steering and much more. The new model, depending on the trim that you choose also comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment panel as well as a neat instrument cluster
. But what makes this car stand out is its teen driver feature which comes with programmable speed warnings with immediate updates being sent to the parents. It also comes with adaptive cruising, cruise control, automatic headlamps, back up the camera and a lot more.
