The Chevrolet Malibu was launched to compete with the mid-size imports from Japan. Like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, the Malibu emphasizes civilized road manners, quality construction, and buttoned-down practicality wrapped in innocuous if not anonymous styling.
The driving performance of the Malibu exceeded our expectations. We were surprised by the acceleration performance from the V6 and delighted by the crispness of handling on winding roads. It feels firmer than the Camry, but softer than the Accord, a good balance, in other words. Malibu’s solid structure is based on GM’s new Epsilon platform used by a couple of highly successful European sedans. Along with its compliant suspension, this gives the Malibu a smooth, comfortable ride, yet allows for spirited driving. This is no mush-mobile. Steering effort is light at low speeds, so the Malibu is easy to maneuver through crowded parking lots and park.
The mid-level LS comes standard with anti-lock brakes (ABS); traction control; cruise control; remote keyless entry; front-reading lights; map pockets in the backs of the fronts seats; power adjustable pedals; manual lumbar adjustment for the driver’s seat; six-speaker stereo with Radio Data system (which displays the kind of station you are listening to); 15-inch aluminum wheels; a cargo net; illuminated driver’s side vanity mirror and non-illuminated vanity mirror on the passenger side; and body color moldings.
