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."

Pros: "Ride Quality, Freeway/Highway MPG, Brakes"

Cons: "Steering, Annoying Safety features"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 6

"The model I own is the LT 1.5L Turbo, just from hearing that, I misled wasnt too excited. But after driving it for about 5k, it has grown on me. Being sort of a car guy, I find myself judging everything about it sometimes when Im just bored by the numb electronic steering, the sluggish engine, and the somewhat annoying safety features that work too well most of the time. And what I mean about that (The safety features that is) is the auto braking system is a lot of times, too sensitive. I was driving once where there was parked cars on my right and the car attempted several times to stop the entire vehicle when they were a couple good feet to my right. I became rather irritated because of how the people behind me were almost hitting me and confused of why i was brake checking. Most of these safety features can be either turned off or turned down enough if you completely think that you dont need them, or in my case, just flat out annoyed by them. Time to get into some good things about the car: The Brakes: If you like touchy brakes where the initial bite of them is good,ou will like these. Even if u dont, (like myself) youll come to really like them. The Infotainment: Everything from Apple Car Play to the in-car wifi is very well thought out. I still havent come up with a complaint with it. Ride Quality: Every time someone comes in my car for the first time, all I hear is how comfy it is and like the ride quality. Overall it is quite good, suspension is the main cause for that. Now lets get back to some negatives Steering: Its close to dead. Iif u are in it for more than point A to B, you wont really enjoy it. Visibility: The A- pilar is the main problem. There have been several occasions where I could not see pedestrians or even cars because I just cant see them. The overall meaning is that if you are a true car guy and you enjoy the journey, not the best car. In the other hand, if you are just buying this car for just strictly transportation, buy it. I would recommend the 2.0 liter engine with a 9-speed transmission."

Pros: "easy handling, quiet, nice dash layout"

Cons: "no spare only an inflation kit as in many new cars"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"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."
