Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2019 Chevrolet Volt OVERVIEW

The Chevrolet Volt was once one of the few vehicles in the plug-in hybrid segment when it first came out. By offering more range than competitors and good driving dynamics, the Volt became a leader. The 2019 Chevy Volt continues to lead the pack, though it's part of a much larger group. With class-leading range, some luxury features, and a fun-to-drive chassis, the Volt is an electrified car that highlights the best attributes of an electric vehicle without requiring a fundamental change in the way you drive.

What's New for 2019

Chevrolet made a lot of little changes for the 2019 model year. Major highlights include a new 7.2-kW charging system that allows the Volt to get its full electric range back in 2.3 hours when plugged into a Level 2 (240-volt) charging system, which is roughly half the amount of time as last year on the 3.6-kW charger. The automaker has also altered the Low and Regen profiles for increased regenerative braking capability and the automatic engine-assisted heating system, which can now allow for more electric operation up to minus 13 degrees Fahrenheit. Other changes include Chevrolet's new Infotainment 3 system that includes an eight-inch touchscreen, a digital rearview camera, driver-switchable adaptive cruise control, a tire fill alert, and an available power driver's seat.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Volt

Unlike a traditional hybrid, the Volt's plug-in hybrid powertrain lets you plug into a charger to fill up on electricity when you run out. That little differentiation also translates to the setup of its powertrain. The Volt features an 18.4-kWh battery pack that's paired to a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor. Combined output for the vehicle is 149 horsepower and 294 pound-feet of torque.

The powertrain allows the Volt to travel 53 miles on electricity before the gasoline engine kicks on and starts to recharge the battery pack. When that happens, the Volt can travel another 367 miles, essentially giving the vehicle a total range of 420 miles. When it comes to charging, the Volt's new 7.2-kW charging system (optional on the base LT trim and standard on the range-topping Premier trim) allows the vehicle to get a full charge in 2.3 hours on a Level 2 charger. On an everyday wall plug, the vehicle gets a full charge in approximately 13 hours.

Fuel economy for the Volt, as you might suspect, is excellent. The vehicle is capable of getting up to an EPA-estimated 106 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) combined, or 42 mpg combined when the gas engine is running.

The Volt is available in two trims:

LT

Pricing for the base Volt LT starts at $34,395 (all prices include the $875 destination charge). Standard exterior features for the trim include 17-inch wheels, LED headlights, LED taillights, and power exterior mirrors. On the inside, the trim comes with an eight-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, a six-speaker audio system, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, cloth seats, remote keyless entry, and power door locks and windows.

Available packages include the Comfort Package ($460) that adds heated front seats, a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, a leather-wrapped shift knob, and heated exterior mirrors. The LT Driver Confidence Package ($790) includes rear park assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change alert with blind-spot monitoring.

The Power Convenience Package ($1,660) comes with leather seats, a six-way power driver's seat, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a leather-wrapped shift knob, and heated exterior mirrors. Those seeking some sporty styling for their Volt can explore the Blackout Package ($1,995), which includes a sport pedal kit, 17-inch Gloss Black wheels, as well as black bowtie emblems.

The new 7.2-kW charger is available for an extra $750.

Premier

Moving up to the Premier trim costs $38,995. It builds off of the LT trim and adds leather seats, heated front seats, a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic parking assist, front and rear parking sensors, wireless charging, a Bose premium audio system, the 7.2-kW charger, and a six-way power driver's seat as standard.

The Blackout Package returns for the same price, while the newly available Driver Confidence II Package ($990) adds low speed forward automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist with lane departure warning, a following distance indicator, IntelliBeam automatic high-beam headlights, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change alert with blind-spot monitoring.

CarsDirect Tip

While the 2019 Chevy Volt is a leader in the plug-in hybrid segment, it comes at a higher price than its competitors. With that in mind, unless you need an upscale interior to go with the fuel-efficient powertrain, we'd recommend going with the base LT trim. If you have access to a Level 2 charger, the new 7.2-kW system is a must, as are the Driver Confidence Package and the Comfort Package.
