2020 Chevrolet Malibu Review

Overview
The Chevrolet Malibu is on a mission to change the way you see midsize sedans. The sleek-looking sporty-riding Malibu offers fuel economy a full suite of safety features and all the technology you need to stay connected. Choose from five trims starting with the L and moving through the top-of-the-line Premier. Whether you’re going across town or across the country you’ll ride in style—and in comfort. Sophisticated satin chrome trim and impressively tailored soft-touch surfaces surround you and even rear-seat passengers enjoy generous leg room. Take calls and change radio stations using your voice or the touch-screen with the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is included. All Malibus come with ten airbags and a high-strength steel frame. And electronic stability control and four-wheel antilock brakes. Available Driver Confidence packages add features like Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning Automatic Emergency Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a Malibu that’s all yours. The Chevrolet Malibu. You can have it all!
Technology
Your Chevrolet Malibu is loaded with technology. Coffee shop Wi-Fi is history with the Malibu’s available Abuilt-in 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. Connect up to seven devices and surf away. Chevrolet Infotainment 3 brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility to a color touchscreen display. Access your Malibu even when you’re not in it. With the myChevrolet Mobile App you can control door locks and more from almost anywhere. Available Sirius XM Satellite Radio6 brings you more than a hundred and fifty channels of music news sports and more. The Chevrolet Malibu. Stay connected.
Safety
Performance
With two powertrains available the Chevrolet Malibu gives you a choice of efficient and responsive driving experiences. Fuel-saving technologies like Variable Valve Timing and Automatic Stop-Start give the turbocharged 1.5-liter ECOTEC engine an impressive EPA-estimated 36 miles per gallon on the highway. Or if you want more power there’s the 250-horse two-liter ECOTEC engine and its nine-speed automatic transmission. And with a MacPherson Strut suspension up front and a tuned 4-link suspension in back your Malibu isn’t just comfortable it’s fun to drive. The Chevrolet Malibu. Built just for you.
