2019 Chevy Malibu Lands Spot on US News’ List of the 12 Cheapest Hybrid Cars in 2020
The price tags associated with eco-friendly vehicles may have dissuaded you from making a purchase in the past. Today, the market offers several budget-friendly hybrid vehicles if you’re eager to reduce your driving footprint. Consider the 2019 Chevy Malibu Hybrid. It offers a greener power source without sacrificing style, comfort, and performance. Plus, it just made U.S. News & World Report’s List of the 12 Cheapest Hybrid Cars in 2020.
Do You Know? How the 2019 Chevy Malibu and Impala differ
The 2019 Chevy Malibu Hybrid earned kudos from the U.S. News editors for its refresh, bold exterior design, and a user-friendly infotainment system equipped with an 8-inch touch screen. Its connectivity tech that seamlessly syncs your smartphone and its Wi-Fi hotspot are necessary conveniences you need in a new ride.
“The Malibu Hybrid also offers peppy acceleration, great fuel economy, and balanced ride and handling,” according to U.S. News & World Report writer Steven Loveday.
The Chevy Malibu Hybrid is also a good choice for families with inexperienced drivers thanks to its innovative Teen Driver technology. The system allows parents to monitor their teen’s driving behaviors and provides a report card. Parents can then see what their teen is doing well and what habits their teen needs to improve.
Hybrid vehicles aren’t just kinder to the environment than vehicles powered solely by gas, though. Because your hybrid requires less gas overall, you’ll reap fuel savings for as long as you own the vehicle. And, that’s not all.
“Hybrids offer instant torque and regenerative braking, which sends energy back into the battery while helping to stop the car. Depending on how you drive, this could mean your hybrid’s regular friction brakes won’t wear out for a long time,” adds Loveday.
