Inside, the upgraded infotainment system makes it easy to stay connected without getting distracted from the road up ahead.

Which Features are Available on the 2019 Malibu?

When you shop for a Chevy Malibu, you can choose between five different trim models for the sedan that best suits your budget. Trims include the L, LS, RS, LT, and Premier.

In the Malibu L, you'll save the most on up-front costs. This trim is also nicely stocked with comfort and convenience features, so you get a lot for your money. This includes a standard 8-inch touchscreen loaded with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This smartphone integration technology displays apps on the touchscreen, so you can use them with minimal distraction. OnStar is also standard equipment, providing safety-net features like roadside assistance and automatic collision notification bolster your peace of mind.

When you upgrade to the LS, you also get Chevy's Teen Driver system. If your teenagers are newly licensed, you can use this technology to set geofence boundaries and curfew alerts. The LS's OnStar system includes a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, so you can take your internet connection with you out on the road.

In the Malibu RS, you'll find a lot of sporty features - including dual exhaust tips, a spoiler, blacked-out exterior trim, and black 18-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the eight-way power-adjustable driver seat with power lumbar gives drivers of all shapes and sizes their own perfect position behind the wheel.

Next up is the Malibu LT. It adds to the LS lineup with a number of modern convenience features. LED daytime running lights and tail lamps provide world-class visibility. Use the remote start feature to impress your friends. If you need to check your hair, just use the illuminated vanity mirrors. When winter hits, heated front seats wrap you in cozy comfort. The LT's dual-zone climate controls maintain two separate temperature for driver and front passenger.

Upgrade to the Malibu Premier for all-out luxury. This sedan is fully loaded with every imaginable creature comfort, from leather upholstery to ventilated front seats. The nine-speaker Bose stereo system gives you the crispest, clearest audio you could ask for. Thanks to the wireless charging pad, you don't have to worry about keeping your smartphone ready for action.
