2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs 2019 Chevrolet Malibu

The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon made its grand debut here at Herman Cook Volkswagen near Carlsbad and Escondido, CA, earlier this year and it instantly and absolutely blew everyone away who got behind its wheel.

That means more power, better gas mileage, smoother and more dynamic handling, and more advanced new safety, technology, comfort and convenience features.

Listing the Features and Capabilities that Make the 2019 VW Arteon at Herman Cook Volkswagen in Encinitas CA a Smarter Purchase than a 2019 Chevy Malibu

In most cases, when a lineup with only one engine option enters a head-to-head model comparison against a competitor with more engine options, that lineup doesn’t fare well. But that’s not the case for the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon lineup because its sole engine option is just so powerful, fuel efficient, and fun to drive.</p>

<p>And in the case of this comparison, the engine of the 2019 Arteon lineup is more powerful than both 2019 Chevy Malibu engine options, except for a two pound-feet torque advantage for the 2019 Malibu lineup’s available engine. What that means is that if you choose a 2019 Malibu, you’re going to have to pay extra for a higher trim level to get a model with a two pound-feet torque advantage and less horsepower than you get with the base 2019 Arteon model. The 2019 Arteon lineup is also just as fuel efficient as the 2019 Malibu, meaning you’re getting additional power without paying for it at the pump.

As an added bonus, the trunk of the 2019 Arteon lineup is also far more spacious than the trunk of the 2019 Malibu lineup.
