2015 Chevrolet Malibu
$2,414 savings available (expires 9/30/14)
The Malibu stands out for offering an attractive discount on an already affordable, and appealing, midsized sedan. Refined for 2014 with suspension tweaks and incrementally increased rear-seat space, the Malibu is a comfortable, very quiet sedan. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder with a start/stop system is the base engine, coupled with a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. Spirited turbo model boasts 259 horsepower. Compared to competing models, the Malibu ride is cushier but handling remains sound, although our testers feel it gets soggy at its limits. Controls are simple and straightforward. Serenity is its hallmark. Reliability has been average for all versions.
The key to getting the lowest price on a car is to know how much negotiating room you have. That means knowing all of the current sales incentives, including behind-the-scenes dealer perks. That information is what makes the CR Bottom Line Price the best place to begin your new-car negotiations. It's calculated by subtracting any rebates, dealer incentives, or holdback amounts from the dealer-invoice price. That gives you a good idea of how much negotiating room you have below the car's sticker price. Armed with those figures, you can often save thousands of dollars when buying a new car. Get the CR Bottom Line Price on your next new car through Consumer Reports' New Car Price Reports.
