The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu has dropped some camouflage while testing its new facelift.

The midsize sedan segment is very competitive, so Chevrolet is hoping to give the Malibu a boostin sales with a modest refresh. The prototype caught by spy photographers reveal that the front and rear end will receive noticeable changes, which include new lights, bumpers, and a front grille.

Although spy photographers were unable to get photos of the prototype Malibu’s interior, expect it to receive similar updates as other recent Chevrolet introductions, like the Equinox. The Malibu should also benefit from more advanced driver assistance technologies.

didnt they just refresh this thing in like 2015? i had a 2017 malibu when my cruze was in for warranty work, and it was pretty awful. gas mileage wasnt great, it was really boring to drive, it also seems iffy on corners at high speeds. maybe just used to the cruze, but it just seemed like so much less of a car. it definitely had more room.

I feel like Chevy/GM have gone back to the days of everything looking the same (Impala, Malibu, Cruze) just different sizes. I think all the Cadillac sedans look the same, again, just different sizes. Same with Buick too ... and some of the cross family cars look the same, just have different grille and features.

That's kinda intentional. Mazda, Ford, Honda, Toyota, and probably others are sticking hard to their own design language too. Hyundai keeps trying to find theirs.

All of that sounds like a need for change. I drove that Malibu and left the whole brand shortly after. Their goal seemed like a pretty looking rental car inside and out.




It reminds me of the front end of the Honda Accord for some reason.
Kinda does.

I wonder if they're doing anything to improve the headlights, which seem to be an issue on the current Malibu.
