Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Volvo S60 should give the "default" German choices a real run for the money.

Pros
Son of S90 style
Promise of good performance
Sedate interior
Lots of safety gear

Cons
Market has moved toward crossover SUVs
Is it too much like the S90?
Care by Volvo subscription off to a rocky start
Polestar Engineered not on T5, T6

Fully redesigned for 2019

Pros
Appealing powertrain lineup including a high-performance plug-in hybrid
Long list of standard and available safety equipment

Cons
Interior user interface may be difficult to learn

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
Supple ride
Spacious seats
Easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Low-rent interior
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
