About Chevrolet Malibu

The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu midsize sedan is a formidable competitor against the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Kia Optima, Hyundai Sonata, and any other car in its class you'd care to mention. The sleek design gives it, in our opinion, a best-in-class appearance, resembling the larger Chevy Impala in all the right ways. The same is true of the modern and comfortable interior as well. But it's more than just esthetics. The 2017 Malibu's comfortable interior boasts a big back seat, plus high-tech features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear cross-traffic alert and automatic-parking assist. The three engine choices include a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder and a hybrid with a Volt-derived powertrain, and prices are right in line with its rivals in this highly competitive class.

"I like this Malibu a lot. The updated styling looks great and the ride is very comfortable. It has a lot of perks for the money. Lots of room front, back and trunk. I get 31-32 MPG. The only thing that I would change is the size of the fuel tank. It should have much more capacity for a car of this size. Even with the good mileage, fill ups are way too frequent. Overall, a great car and head and shoulders above the Chevy Cruze that I traded in."

"Sleek and sexy lines, quality materials inside, nice and predictable handling. easy to operate all the high tech. Pleasantly surprised how smooth and quiet the 2.0 is since I usually opt for a v6 in a new car but that isn't available or necessary on the 2017 Malibu.I gave it a 9 overall because there is no spare tire, only an inflation kit as in many newer cars.Get the Premier model and you won't be disappointed."

"I have the Premier model with the comfort and convenient packages 1 & 2. I got better than the EPA mileage traveling at 75mpg twice.(just (900 miles)I love all the technology. I use to drive a 2014 Buick LaCross. This car is much better, more driver leg room, better visibility, quicker steering, all at a lower price."
