2018 Chevy Malibu Plate Exterior

With handsomely styled sheetmetal and an aggressive front end, the Malibu is set to slice through the tedium that permeates the world of family sedans. The interior has more rear-seat legroom than before, while the materials and overall design lend an upscale look. Under the hood is a 160-hp turbo 1.5-liter four-cylinder; a 250-hp turbo 2.0-liter four is optional. Both have front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic. A hybrid Malibu is also available; in our testing, we saw 35 mpg.

Overview: The Chevrolet Malibu, the latest version of which debuted for 2016, is one of our favorites among family sedans and an excellent car in its own right. It is attractive, light for its class, and solidly built. In our most recent comparison test of the segment, it bested both the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry, finishing a close second to the sportier and even prettier Mazda 6. The front-wheel-drive Chevy’s sloping roofline doesn’t impede rear headroom as much as you’d think, and its longish 111.4-inch wheelbase affords lots of legroom for both front- and rear-seat occupants. The lineup starts with the volume L, LS, and LT models, all of which are powered by a smooth, 163-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. These versions are EPA-rated at 30 mpg combined, although in the aforementioned comparison test, the LT could only match the observed fuel economy of naturally aspirated Accord and Camry models at 23 mpg versus the Mazda’s 25 mpg.
