Chevrolet Malibu Overview

This comfortable and very quiet midsized sedan has a cushy ride and a well-finished interior. Handling is sound, but gets soggy at its limits. The up-level 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder gets 24 mpg. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder with an unobtrusive start/stop system, paired with a six-speed automatic, is standard. Controls are simple and straightforward. The front seats are wide and soft, but lack support on long trips. The backseat is cramped, but trunk room is sufficient even in the hybrid. Changes for 2015 include a standard built-in WiFi hotspot with three months of complimentary data. Reliability has been average.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
