2019 Chevrolet Malibu RS Specs

Chevrolet Malibu

Deviating from the standard, everyday look, the RS strives to add a sporty element to the sedan. This is attempted by throwing a black Chevy logo onto an already blacked-out grille, adding a spoiler on the rump and emphasizing dual exhaust outlets with polished chrome tips. Black wheels and an all-black cloth interior complete the overall look. On the inside, the driver’s seat gains eight-way power adjustability and lumbar control. The steering wheel and shift knob are clad in leather, and exterior color options drop to only six available choices. No other significant changes are made to this trim.
