This will be positioned in the middle of the pack, with Chevy stating the Malibu RS will start around $25,000.

Chevrolet today introduced the restyled 2019 Cruze with a more premium appearance that enhances its on-road presence and strengthens its value for customers.

Setting the RS trim apart is a dual-outlet exhaust system, a black grille, 18-inch wheels, a black Chevy bowtie emblem and, obviously, no shortage of RS badging.

"We are committed to offering consumers a full lineup of products with fresh designs, new technologies and efficient powertrain options", said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet.

In the broader markets, the mid-cap and small-cap indices ended with gains of 0.65 per cent and 0.61 per cent, respectively. Among the early gainers were Sobha whose shares went up by seven per cent while Magma Fincorp was down by six per cent.

The Malibu receives a larger, more prominent grille for the 2019 model year. We doubt there will be any big changes to the Malibu's pricing, so expect it to start around $23K.

A greater attention to detail includes intricate, sculpted grilles and integrated signature headlamps.

An 8-inch touchscreen with Chevrolet's latest infotainment software is standard across the Malibu lineup, and a new 8-inch driver information display is available on the top Premier model. For 2019, Chevy added an RS trim line, a standard 8.0-inch screen featuring Chevrolet Infotainment 3 and some minor restyling. The Premier trim retains its 2.0L Turbo paired to a nine-speed automatic. The LT and Premier trims feature LED taillamps.

"Cruze is a cornerstone of Chevrolet's vehicle strategy, bringing new customers to the brand", said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet marketing director for cars and crossovers, in a release.

"Cruze's refreshed styling gives Cruze a more upscale look while maintaining its Chevrolet design DNA", said John Cafaro, executive director of global Chevrolet design.

The restyled Malibu joins the 2019 Cruze and Spark as part of Chevrolet's freshened auto portfolio.

The rework may not be earth-shattering in the scheme of things, but it did prove Chevrolet believes the compact and mid-sized sedan markets are not yet dead - these segments still account for 27 per cent of the brand's sales, which is a significant number given the monumental sales plummet the lowly sedan has experienced in the past couple of years.
