Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive
“”

Even in base trim, a Malibu feels light and nimble. Handling capably, it’s a pleasure to drive compared to most midsize sedans.

With 163 horsepower, the 1.5-liter base engine is fine for daily commutes as well as longer-distance treks. Only on mountain grades, is that powertrain likely to feel overtaxed. Even when pushed hard, the 1.5-liter engine is comparatively quiet. The 6-speed automatic doesn’t over-rev the engine before upshifting on the highway, which keeps noise down.

Considerably more powerful as well as refined, the 2.0-liter turbo under Premier hoods suppresses any need for a V6 engine. Even at lower engine speeds, this engine promises eager acceleration. Chevrolet omits the selectable modes for the powertrain and steering boost that have become popular, but the fixed calibrations deliver fine performance without fuss.

Among the lightest sedans in the midsize group, Malibu feels firm but well-composed, with its comfortably-tuned suspension. Though it leans toward comfort over sharpness, any Malibu feels impressively agile – almost like a compact model.

Although the Malibu Hybrid borrows some technology from Chevrolet’s Volt, and can travel short distances on battery power, it’s intended to be driven in a conventional manner. Acceleration to 60 mph is achieved in 7.8 seconds – sufficient to satisfy nearly all midsize sedan owners. Steering feels no less vivid than that of a regular Malibu, though its engine will be heard more often.

Non-hybrid models emit minimal engine drone. Most wind and road noises are suppressed, though rough surfaces might transmit some vibration.

Walk Around

For its 2016 redesign, the Malibu got longer and lighter, helped by additional high-strength steel. Starting with a lower, stretched nose, the current version also grew more handsome than its mundane predecessors. Design cues are similar to those used for the larger Impala, with more satisfying proportions.

Doors are wider than they used to be, windshield pillars are slimmer, and the back window is rather narrow. Taillights also are narrow, while the front end flaunts a bolder look. Viewed from the side, in particular, the Malibu exhibits a nicely balanced appearance.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Despite a relatively short wheelbase, Malibu is one of the most spacious midsize sedans, enhanced by a thoughtful layout and clever packaging. Back-seat legroom reaches 38.1 inches, close to Impala space.

Displaying understated charm, the cabin features a conventionally-styled, relatively low dashboard, expanded toward the corners. The center stack contains a 7.0-inch touchscreen (8.0-inch in Premier). Many owners are likely to welcome the use of control buttons. The driver sits a little lower than in some midsize sedans.

Sound-deadening techniques and active noise cancellation help subdue vibrations, whether from the road or powertrain. Base-level cloth upholstery fails to impress, but upper trim levels are pleasing.

Sensible details include knee-height console padding and substantial seat bolstering. Sufficiently long front-seat bottoms promise good support even for all-day driving.

Back-seat passengers also enjoy good leg support, on a flat floor. Less curvy than some rivals, the Malibu roofline doesn’t cut into headroom. Trunks have 15.8 cubic feet of space (11.6 cubic feet in the Hybrid).

Soft-touch surfaces are plentiful, but interior materials suggest some cost-cutting.

Summary

Today’s Malibu delivers composed handling, a quiet ride, efficient powertrains, interior comfort, all in a spacious, quiet, solid midsize four-door. Entry models are short on popular features, but upper-level Malibu models score well on the value scale.
