The midsize 2019 Malibu sedan has been built to challenge rivals like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, and it succeeds on multiple levels, aided by attractive styling and well-liked technologies such as Apple CarPlay and adaptive cruise control. The Malibu Hybrid, which gets nearly 50 mpg in the city, only sweetens the deal.
