Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Squeezed between two popular siblings—the compact Cruze and the full-size Impala—the midsize Malibu might feel like the proverbial middle child. But Chevrolet has been making gradual updates that make the Malibu a compelling option, even in the hyper-competitive family sedan market.

What's New for 2015

The Malibu was redesigned for 2013 and addressed some complaints in a minor refresh in 2014. Changes this year are minor.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Malibu

The most important decision a Malibu buyer makes is trim level—this determines features, of course, but also which of two engines will provide power:

  • The base engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 196 horsepower. Mated to six-speed automatic transmission, it's rated for an impressive 36 mpg highway. This is the engine most Malibu trim levels receive.
  • Available only on certain upper-tier models is a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder that generates 259 horsepower and returns 30 mpg highway.

The Malibu offers six trim levels:

Chevrolet Malibu


Like most entry-level LS models from Chevrolet, the LS offers basic amenities like air conditioning, power windows and cruise control, along with Bluetooth connectivity for mobile phones. While the other trim levels have access to plenty of optional equipment, an LS does not.

Chevrolet Malibu


Only slightly more expensive than the LS is a 1LT with added amenities like Bluetooth audio streaming, MyLink with a 7-inch screen, heated outside mirrors and upgraded cloth upholstery.

Chevrolet Malibu


With the 2LT, the Malibu gains luxuries like dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and eight-way power adjustment for the driver's seat.

Chevrolet Malibu


The only difference between a 2LT and a 3LT is the latter's turbocharged 2-liter engine.

Chevrolet Malibu


Although a premium-level Malibu, the 1LTZ features the normally aspirated 2.5-liter engine. It gains leather upholstery, heated front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and 18-inch wheels.
