2017 Malibu Overview

Chevrolet Malibu was completely redesigned for the 2016 model year.No longer a humdrum midsize sedan, the Malibu gained a new body structure, lost 300 pounds, and reached a new plateau in road manners, far removed from its predecessor.It's an excellent example of the forward strides the Detroit Three automakers have made lately.

A 9-speed automatic transmission has been added to the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu Premier trim.

The new 9-speed works with the strongest Malibu engine: a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that develops 250 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.That Premier 2.0-liter makes a worthy substitute for a V6.

Most models hold a 1.5-liter turbo four, rated at 163 horsepower and 184 pound-feet, working with a 6-speed automatic.2017 Malibu LT and LS radios gain Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, along with a Teen Driver feature.A new Sport package is available.

For peak fuel-efficiency, Chevrolet continues to offer a Malibu Hybrid.A 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, rated at 182 horsepower, teams with dual electric motors and a battery pack.

While the 2016 reworking lengthened the Malibu by several inches, it's still near the smaller end of its vehicle category.Base L trim level targets fleet buyers.In the showroom, customers can choose a Malibu LS, LT, Premier, or Hybrid.

Malibu has earned a five-star overall crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with four stars for rollover (a calculated figure).The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave it a Top Safety Pick award.Except for the base L model, a rearview camera is standard.All Malibus have 10 airbags.

Quite a few active-safety features are available, but mainly for LT and Premier editions.A Front Pedestrian Alert can identify pedestrians ahead, and brake automatically.Adaptive cruise control works with front automatic braking.Also offered are blind-spot monitoring with lane-change alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and active lane keep with lane-departure warning.Unlike some safety systems, those on the Malibu function subtly, yet firmly.Front and rear parking sensors are available, as is automatic parking assist.

Malibus with the 1.5-liter engine are EPA-rated at 27/36 mpg City/Highway, or 30 mpg Combined.With the 2.0-liter turbo, estimates dip substantially to 22/33 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg.At the other extreme, the Hybrid is EPA-rated at 49/43 mpg City/Highway, or 46 mpg Combined.
