Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Ford Fusion’s good looks get shoppers in the door, but this sedan is starting to show its age.

Pros
Still looks good after all these years
An engine for every need and budget
Thrifty Fusion Hybrid
Thrilling Fusion Sport
Active safety gear standard

Cons
Been around for a while
Due to be discontinued
Tight rear seat
Some models are expensive
Lackluster fuel economy in non-hybrids

Even though small crossover SUVs are now a go-to choice for many families, midsize sedans still enjoy some advantages. One of the perks is the widespread availability of fuel-sipping hybrid models. The 2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid is a good example. It combines the sleek look and surprisingly dynamic handling of the standard Fusion with a more efficient powertrain that's good for 42 mpg in combined city/highway driving.Revised trim levels and feature availability.

PROS
Excellent Sync 3 infotainment system
Interior remains quiet at highway speeds
Upscale cabin design

CONS
Fuel economy figures aren't as high as rival hybrid sedans
Sleek roofline reduces rear visibility and headroom

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
