2019 Chevrolet Malibu RS Receives Starting Price of $24,995
The Chevrolet Malibu’s latest trim level for the 2019 model year, the Malibu RS, supplies a sportier feel to the mid-size sedan. Drivers who desire this aesthetic for their Malibu models fortunately won’t have to break the bank in order to do so.
The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu RS has a reported asking price of $24,995.

That price is a mere $1,000 more than the Malibu LS model, which starts at $23,995. It’s also not that much higher than the starting price of the base-level Malibu, which is reportedly somewhere around $22,090.
The 2019 Chevy Malibu RS comes decorated with a black sport grille, a custom black bowtie emblem, a rear spoiler, and 18-inch wheels. Within the Malibu RS, drivers will discover a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
Surprisingly, the powertrain of the Malibu RS remains unchanged from its Malibu L and Malibu LS counterparts. The standard 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivers 163 horsepower.
Still, 2019 marks the first year that the Malibu is paired with a continuously-variable transmission. This drivetrain may very well make the Malibu quite a bit more efficient, although EPA fuel economy figures for the 2019 Malibu have not yet been released.

Many competing OEMs have offered sporty variants of their mid-size models for quite some time now. The 2019 Chevy Malibu RS is less pricey than most of those models, making it an attractive choice for motorists on a budget.
Malibu sales have been on the decline for the past few months. Hopefully, a new RS variant may be just what is needed to revitalize sales for this sedan.
