Stylish Chevy Malibu Continues to Impress
The market for a midsized, affordable sedan style car is crowded. But, here at Chevy Exchange, we think the Chevrolet Malibu shines brighter because of what it brings to the table in style and spaciousness.
Modern Chevy Malibu
The Chevy Malibu, which was redesigned in 2016, comes available in five possible trims:
- The L base model
- The LS
- The 1LT
- The Malibu Hybrid
- The Premier
Power and Engine Types
Depending on the trim level you choose, the Chevy Malibu comes with a varied selection in engine types. For example, the base model has a 1.5-liter four cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission, while the Hybrid version has a 1.8-liter four-cylinder gas/electric combination, and the Premier trim has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Basically, depending on your lifestyle and how much power you like when you drive, you can get your engine type customized to suit you when you drive a Chevy Malibu.
The Chevy Malibu was awarded a "Top Safety Pick" in 2017 by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Additionally, it comes with a number of important safety features, including:
- Parking assistance
- Automatic braking
- Lange change alert system
- Front pedestrian braking system
You'd expect the Chevy Malibu Hybrid to get great fuel economy and a lot of miles per gallon, but you wouldn't expect to see the great fuel economy all trim levels of the Malibu get.
The Hybrid averages approximately 49 mpg in the city, but the other trims are no slackers, averaging around 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, depending on the trim level you choose.
