There are Five Available Trims for the 2019 Malibu

Outside of the Malibu Hybrid, there are five Malibu trim levels from which to choose. They are the L, LS, RS, LT, and Premier. The one that best suits your daily drive both fits into your budget and provides you with the features you crave.

In the base Malibu L, you'll save big and still enjoy a modern, comfortable ride. This trim features OnStar, an emergency telematics system that provides on-demand roadside assistance and automatic collision notification. If your Malibu is stolen, OnStar can even help you track it down. The L comes standard with conveniences like keyless entry and ignition and smartphone integration to help you save time throughout your day.

Upgrade to the Malibu LS for a little extra connectivity. This trim comes standard with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, so your kids can connect their devices and stay busy for hours on end. The LS also includes a Teen Driver system, which helps you keep track of newly licensed teens with features like geofencing and curfew alerts.

Next up is the sporty Malibu RS. With its exclusive black 18-inch alloy wheels and blacked-out exterior trim, it's easy to pick this model out of a lineup. It also includes a spoiler and dual exhaust tips for enhanced performance. Inside, the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob add a little panache.

When you select the Malibu LT, you get all of the LS features and then some. The LT adds exclusive luxury items, including illuminated vanity mirrors and an eight-way power-adjustable driver seat. The LED daytime running lights and taillights help other drivers spot you on the road. Inside, dual-zone climate controls create two different comfort zones for driver and front passenger.

Finally, there's the Malibu Premier. Choose this top-of-the-line trim model for a richly appointed cabin, with features that include standard leather upholstery and ventilated front seats. The Premier nine-speaker Bose audio system is a favorite among audiophiles, who can't get enough of its crisp, clear sound and booming bass.
