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.

Thrifty hybrid
Excellent tech story

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