Swoopy styling and modern powertrains are highlights of Chevrolet's redesigned midsized sedan. The new Malibu is competitive among mid-sized sedans with a quiet cabin and easy to use controls. In tests we found the Malibu quiet, with a comfortable ride and responsive handling. Two four-cylinder turbo engines are offered: a 1.5-liter with a six-speed automatic--which got 29 mpg in our tests--and more powerful and refined 2.0-liter backed by an eight-speed automatic. A new hybrid, utilizing some of the Chevrolet Volt technology, is also available. It got an impressive 41 mpg overall in our tests. Up front is a roomy, comfortable cockpit and an updated version of Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system. Unfortunately the cloth seats are a bit short on support. The rear seat is roomy, so long-legged passengers can stretch out.
