Which Volt does Edmunds recommend?

The 2019 Chevy Volt is only available in two trim levels: LT and Premier. The LT has a decent amount of equipment for the money, but we'd go with the Premier. The Premier gets the quicker 7.2-kWh onboard charger as standard (it's an option on the LT) and it allows you to add some optional safety features such as adaptive cruise control and an upgraded forward collision mitigation system.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

8.0 / 10

It's fair to say that no vehicle bridges the gap between hybrids and pure electric vehicles better than the 2019 Chevrolet Volt. When it comes to all-electric range, no other plug-in hybrid can match the EPA-rated 53 miles. What does that mean? Well, you drive the Volt about 53 miles before it needs to switch over to its gasoline engine. For a lot of people, that means not even having to use the engine at all on a daily basis.

After that, it's like any other hybrid on the road. Fill it up with gas, drive until you run out, then fill it up again and keep on moving. The Volt is also surprisingly good to drive. It accelerates quickly, brakes well and even handles well on curvy back roads. One notable upgrade this year is the Volt's newly optional 7.2-kWh onboard charger. Compared to the existing 3.6-kWh unit, this higher capacity charger cuts 240-volt charging times in half, to about 2.3 hours to completely recharge.

The Volt's interior also has a new infotainment interface and an optional power-adjustable driver's seat. All together, these changes help the Volt maintain its high ranking for a plug-in hybrid. There are some appealing competitors to look at, such as the Kia Niro Plug-In, the Honda Clarity Plug-In and the Prius Prime. But in the end, we wouldn't be surprised if you landed on the 2019 Chevrolet Volt.

What's it like to live with?

Plug-in hybrids have a limited customer base, but the Volt will likely please interested buyers. It has impressive all-electric range and transitions smoothly from battery to engine power. We learned this over the course of a two-year test that logged nearly 29,000 miles of city driving and road-trip range testing. Is it the right car for you? Read our Chevy Volt long-term test to find out. Note that while we tested a 2016 Volt, most of our observations apply to the 2019 model as well.

2019 Chevrolet Volt models

The 2019 Volt is a five-seat, plug-in hybrid hatchback sedan offered in LT and Premier trims. Both come with a plug-in hybrid system consisting of twin electric motors, a 1.5-liter gasoline engine/generator and an 18.4-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Total system output is 149 horsepower and 294 pound-feet of torque. You need to plug it in to recharge fully, but the battery pack can also be partially recharged on the go from the gas engine/generator and regenerative braking.

Standard feature highlights for the Volt LT include 17-inch wheels, a 3.6-kWh onboard charger,  LED headlights (low-beam) and taillights, keyless entry and ignition, remote start, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks, automatic climate control and a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. Notable technology features for the Volt are a reconfigurable driver information and gauge cluster display screen, Bluetooth, OnStar (with 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity), an 8-inch central touchscreen interface, a rearview camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio.

Optional for the LT is a Comfort package that includes heated mirrors, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel. Leather upholstery can be ordered with the LT Comfort package as well. An eight-speaker Bose audio system is available as a stand-alone option.

Move up to the Volt Premier and you get the LT's equipment, the contents of the Comfort package, the Bose audio system, plus different 17-inch wheels, a 7.2-kWh onboard charger (which speeds up charging time), an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated rear outboard seats, a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat with two-way lumbar adjustment, and an automated parking system (parallel and perpendicular).

The faster 7.2-kWh onboard charging system is available as a stand-alone option for the LT. A Driver Confidence package is available for the LT and Premier trims and it includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors. The Driver Confidence 2 package for the Premier trim (requires the Driver Confidence package) adds forward collision warning with automatic low-speed emergency braking, lane departure warning and intervention, and adaptive headlights.

If you get the Driver Confidence 2 package, you can also spring for adaptive cruise control and an upgraded automatic emergency braking system. A navigation system and a wireless charging pad for cellphones are optional for the Premier.

Trim tested

The ratings in this review are based on our full test of a Chevrolet Volt Premier (1.5L inline-4 plug-in hybrid | CVT automatic | FWD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2017, the current Chevy Volt has received some revisions, including the addition of an optional 7.2-kWh onboard charger and a new infotainment interface. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Chevrolet Volt, however.

Driving

8.5
Considering the Volt's eco-friendly mission and its thriftiness on fuel, it performs admirably. The Volt feels willing and able in just about every situation, and it's one of the smoothest-driving plug-in hybrid vehicles out there.

Acceleration

8.0
The Volt's powertrain delivers smooth and seamless acceleration whether in electric or gasoline mode. Our sprint to 60 mph took just 7.8 seconds on electricity or 7.5 seconds on gasoline, an enthusiastic performance for a green car.

Braking

8.0
The brake pedal is a bit unresponsive initially, but otherwise the Volt's braking is pleasingly smooth and linear. The blending of regenerative and regular friction braking is nearly imperceptible, too. In our 60 mph-to-zero panic-stop test, the Volt posted a respectable 119-foot distance.

Steering

7.5
It steers with a confidence and directness that make it easy for the driver to guide the car around turns and through corners. Effort is generally good, but it can feel a bit "thick" and indistinct around center when cruising straight.

Handling

9.0
The Volt exhibits good coordination and even a bit of playfulness on winding roads. Don't push it too hard, though, because the suspension and economy-minded tires aren't optimized for that sort of thing.

Drivability

10.0
Electric drive is very smooth in the Volt. In gasoline mode, the engine and the CVT work well together, too. It's an easy car to drive. The Volt has an L mode and a steering-wheel-mounted paddle for more brake regeneration. But some drivers might find the paddle's abrupt engagement off-putting.

Comfort

7.5
The Volt is certainly quiet, and the ride is smooth most of the time. The suspension doesn't always maintain its composure on the worst roads, though. The seats are generally well-shaped for most, but they have a few limitations that prevent them from being universally loved.

Seat comfort

7.5
The seats generally receive high marks for comfort and support, but the bottom cushion could be longer to help with thigh support. The rear outboard seats, thanks to the seat contouring and armrest padding, are comfortable for adults.

Ride comfort

7.0
The Volt is generally smooth and buttoned-down over typical sorts of worn or uneven road surfaces. But driving over potholes results in sharp impacts in the cabin. The Volt can seem overly soft and out of sorts when you encounter midcorner bumps, too.

Noise & vibration

8.5
Electric mode is exceedingly silent, of course, but this second-generation Volt is now tame when running on gasoline, too. Engine noise is no longer the sore point it was before. Detectable but not excessive levels of wind and road noise.

Climate control

7.5
Automatic climate control is standard. It's single-zone only, however. Cabin heating works well and warms up quickly. The Premier's heated seats (front and rear) and the heated steering wheel also work well.

Interior

7.0
The Volt's interior is far more useful than the previous generation. It's a lot like a regular car interior, and you can seat up to five now, in theory. But some rival plug-in hybrids are roomier and have better visibility.

Ease of use

8.0
For the most part, using the Volt's controls is simple enough. But because of some of the advanced tech, this isn't a simple car that you can immediately hop in and drive. Setting the climate control manually can be a little confusing.

Getting in/getting out

7.5
Access to the front is easy thanks to wide-opening doors and an agreeable roofline. Backseat access is trickier because of the lower roofline and smaller door openings. Taller folks will have to duck a little.

Driving position

7.0
There's enough adjustability for most drivers, but the driver seat's height adjuster could stand to have more range.

Roominess

7.5
There's plenty of room up front for adults of all sizes. The back seat is a little tighter, but it's still roomy for two adults of average height. In theory, you can fit three back there, but the space taken up by the wide battery pack underneath means the center spot is for kids or car seats only.

Visibility

6.0
The view out the front is good, but the nose drops away out of sight, making parking tricky. The reasonably sized rear door glass helps minimize over-the-shoulder blind spots. Rear visibility is hampered by the small rear window, but the rearview camera is excellent. A rear window wiper isn't available.

Quality

9.0
Though the styling of the cabin is nice, it could stand some more refinement in the aesthetics of the plastic and the overuse of plastic-chrome trim. Acceptable but not outstanding. Exterior assembly and paint quality are about average.

Utility

8.0
The Volt's luggage area doesn't hold a whole lot, but the hatchback design makes the most of it. For everyday driving, the Volt should work out fine. But some rival plug-in vehicles are a bit more utilitarian.

Small-item storage

6.5
The open storage space ahead of the gear shifter is useful for holding your phone or other small items. There's also a small slot next to the shifter and a decent-size center console bin. The cupholders will hold most drink sizes. In back, the Volt has two cupholders but no other storage options.

Cargo space

7.0
The trunk, at 10.6 cubic feet, is modestly sized; fitting golf bags is problematic. The provided security cover is chintzy, too. Still, the hatchback design gives you a bigger portal to load luggage compared to the typical small sedan, and the 60/40-split seatback folds down.

Child safety seat accommodation

7.5
Chevy provides the Volt with a typical arrangement of LATCH anchors. Accessing the lower anchors is OK, but the thick seat cushion contouring can hamper fitting of safety seats. Installation of a rear-facing safety seat might require sliding the front seats up a bit.

Technology

You would expect that a car as advanced as the Volt would have the latest suite of in-car tech, and Chevy delivers. The touchscreen interface is easy to use, and most driver safety aids are either standard or optional.

Audio & navigation

8.5
Every Volt comes with an 8-inch touchscreen with Chevy's infotainment interface. The graphics are sharp, and the menus are easy to understand. Factory navigation comes standard on the Premier. You also get the upgraded Bose audio system. Sound quality is better and more enjoyable than with most base systems.

Smartphone integration

8.0
The two main smartphone app integration systems out right now, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, come standard on the Volt. Bluetooth pairing is simple.

Driver aids

9.0
Most of the latest driver safety aids, such as blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning and lane departure intervention, are available. An automated parking system is also optional.

Voice control

9.0
In our testing, the voice recognition system works reasonably well and gives sufficient prompts if you don't know which commands are available. Also, Siri and Google Voice on your paired smartphone can be called up by pressing and holding the voice button longer.

Bring back the Volt I Won't go Back to my Prius!
Tim Jessup,05/11/2019
LT 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid DD)
Best car I ever owned. Went 3400 miles before refueling with gas! My electric range is 63, well above the stated 53 for this car. Unlike the 2013 Prius I had before, 0-60 in 7 seconds beats 0-60 in 12 every time! We got our Volt our of state and my wife followed me back in our Prius on the 500 mile trip. Driving 65-75mph, the Volt got 47 on gas, while the Prius only got 43. Those of you who drive a Prius, check your mileage with pad and pencil. People who check find that unlike other cars, the Prius computer overstates its mileage by 3-4 mpg (there is a blog for people complaining about this), typically! When I have a bad back, the Volt seats are the most comfortable place to sit. The rear view camera has better definition and (unlike the Prius due to a bad angle on the screen) is easier to view in direct sunlight. I do recommend the blind side detection, as outside visibility is not the best. Also, the rear seat headroom, though more roomy than the previous Volt, is still not adequate for those over 6 ft tall. Can easily accommodate a bicycle, backpack, and other gear for one rider in the back. With rear seat down, rear storage is more than adequate. In Myrtle Beach, we have numerous FREE quick charge stations close by or 30-40 miles from our house. As a result, we are getting over 150 mpgeq! With the optional 7.2 KW quick charge module, we can stop at Tanger outlet and to go Starbucks and do some shopping with a full, FREE charge when we return. Our Volt will charge completely in about two hours for another 63 miles of gas free driving! My son also has a Prius (2014) and he begs us to drive the Volt when he comes home, as the Volt has so much better power and performance. Such a shame that with the demise of the $7500 tax credit this year, Chevrolet has decided to stop making the Volt. Sales have been strong over the years, considered Chevy never advertised for it, and most sales were driven by strong word of mouth recommendations, like mine! Finally, unlike the Nissan Leaf which reported loses 25% of its rated range after 100,000 miles, a Volt blogger who has now reached 400K on this Volt, still has the original batteries, and has lost only 2% of this original range!
Great Car For The Price!
Kevin Arthur,06/02/2019
Premier 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid DD)
We own a 2017 Prius plugin hybrid, Tesla Model 3 dual motor Performance Package with Extended Range, and a new 2019 Chevy Volt Premier with all the options for safety. The difference in performance between the Prius and Volt is huge. Volt = 7 sec vs Prius at 11.5 sec. which is very noticeable in real world driving. The Prius feels cheap, with a poor suspension that cannot manage the winding road or a rough surface road. Volt handles much better and in a ride from CA To IN (2000 miles) it managed 3-4 miles better on a gallon of gas than our Prius following me at 65-75 mph. The Prius computer clearly lies about the mileage it was getting where the Volt on board computer was correct in computing mileage. At 70 mph on a tank of gas the Volt achieved 47 where Prius got 43 if you actually checked the real mileage by comparing the gas used and mileage driven. The Volt was MSRP was $41.5k, but the dealer took $6k off the price so it was $35.5 out the door. Already received the $800 PG&E rebate and the $1500 state credit check. After the $7500 dollar Fed tax credit the total cost is $25.7k for twice the car the Prius is. We have the higher voltage 230v charger in the garage so we only pay $1.52 for 60 miles of driving. Most places we go have all free electric charging at work, Cisco, and public parking garages have free charging in Monterey. We average 120 mpg equivalent on battery when we actually pay to charge which is only 50% of the time and 48 mpg on the gas engine which is used less that 20% of the time. The Tesla performance is on another level all together with 0-60 times 50% faster than a Mustang GT HO V8 and faster than a stock 2019 Corvette, and seats four 6’5” people comfortably. While safety features of the Volt are impressive, the Tesla autopilot reduces driver workload significantly as long as you aren’t weaving through heavy traffic like a lunatic. Overall the Chevy Volt is worth $10k-15k more than any Prius, yet costs less because of better tax incentives, and is much more fun to drive. The Tesla has incredible performance for a sedan but costs twice as much as the Volt. My son drives the Prius now and constantly asks to drive the Volt. We don’t let him drive the Tesla because he doesn’t know how to handle a car that is four times faster from 0-60 or 0-100 than a Prius, and can reach speeds of 162 mph. The Volt is the best bargain in the US, and worth much more than any Prius or Honda Insight, yet cost less.

Premier 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid DD)
I traded a 13 volt for a 19 volt . The 13 was a great commuter car flashy interior and had respectable acceleration . The gas generator made it a great all around car. Now the first drive in the 19 proved to show me the volt I always wanted ! Great acceleration much longer range (62 mi and its still cold where I live) better fuel mileage and lots of safety equipment and it doesn't scrape the front spoiler as much as my previous car. To bad GM dumped this car its a winner

Ann Rodriguez,01/15/2019
LT 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid DD)
This is a really nice car. I transitioned from a Scion xA to this vehicle and love it. The mileage on electric is just perfect for my mostly city driving. I have yet to fill up the gas tank because I have barely used gas. I like the vehicle's interior space and layout. It is very user friendly and easy to use when driving. The vehicle handles well in dry and wet weather. This was one of the best purchases I made.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Chevrolet Volt?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
