Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu ranked #16 in Midsize Cars. Currently the Chevrolet Malibu has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 22 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros

Spacious seats
Easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons

Unsupportive seats

For 2019, the Chevrolet Malibu actually offers all three: a bigger, restyled grille; a new RS model; and an all-new continuously variable automatic transmission. Known internally as VT40, it’s General Motors’ first CVT since 2005. That one, used primarily in Saturn brand vehicles, was problematic and had high failure rates, which led GM to offer an extended warranty.

Pros
Comfortable ride
CVT can mimic a traditional automatic.

Cons
No performance upgrades,
a good CVT is still a CVT.

The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu is a likeable sedan, but it requires some compromises when it comes to essential safety tech.

PROS
Good looks
Excellent performance from turbo engines
Thrifty hybrid
Excellent tech story

CONS
Active safety gear costs too much
Hardly engaging to drive
Dull interior
Light on personality

Pros
Sharp styling
Good value overall
Comfortable interior
Great ride/handling balance

Cons
A hybrid would help

Stiff ride with 20-inch wheels

By:

Highlights of the 2019 Chevrolet Impala include its smooth ride, roomy interior with lots of space for rear-seat passengers, and one of the most massive trunks available in any sedan. Chevy has also updated the latest Impala generation over its life with newer infotainment and connectivity features.

Pros
Smooth, quiet ride
Spacious rear seat and trunk
Sleek cabin with lots of technology upgrades
Capable optional V6

Cons
Advanced collision prevention tech restricted to top trim level
Thick roof pillars hamper visibility
Some interior surfaces feel cheap
Underwhelming performance and fuel economy from standard four-cylinder
