Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Chevrolet Volt?

The 2019 Chevrolet Volt is a front-wheel-drive, range-extended electric hatchback that seats five. It has an EPA-estimated 53 miles of pure EV range but also has a 101-horsepower, 1.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine to give the car a total driving range of more than 400 miles. Volt competitors include the Toyota Prius Prime and Hyundai Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid.

What's New on the 2019 Chevrolet Volt?

A newly optional 7.2-kilowatt charging system cuts the Volt's charging time nearly in half to 2.3 hours, according to Chevrolet. This system is especially useful for owners who “opportunity charge” their cars by plugging them in at different places as they go about their day. A tire-fill-alert system honks the horn when the recommended tire pressure is reached.

What Features in the 2019 Chevrolet Volt Are Most Important?

The quicker charger might be pretty significant, depending on how you drive. Unlike pure electric cars, the Volt's onboard gas generator means you never have to worry about being stranded if the battery runs low. 

Should I Buy the 2019 Chevrolet Volt?

If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly car that's capable of cross-country road trips, the Volt is worth a look. That said, we wish visibility was better and the backseat was roomier.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
