Chevrolet Malibu Named 2017 Best Midsize Car for Families
U.S. News & World Report names the 2017 Chevy Malibu the Best Midsize Car for Families. There are a total of 18 Best Car for Families' awards via 18 unique automotive categories and the vehicles were judged based on safety, reliability, cargo space, and seating room. Furthermore, U.S. News & World Report took reviews by well-known automotive bloggers and publications into consideration when ranking each vehicle. After everything was accounted for, the cars and trucks with the highest scores were awarded a 2017 Best Cars for Families' award.
If you want to get technical, the Honda Motor Company had the most vehicles included on this year’s list of any single manufacturer with four vehicles, but General Motors placed six models on this year’s list, including three Chevrolet models. One of those vehicles was the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu, which won the 2017 Best Midsize Car for Families award. Some of the factors that helped the Malibu take home this honor include its high safety scores, cozy interior, and starting MSRP of just $21,680. That price tag is lower than both the entry-level versions of the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. U.S. News also complimented the ninth-generation Malibu for offering 11 active safety features, including Teen Driver and GM’s Rear Seat Reminder. With Teen Driver, parents can set predetermined maximum speed limits for secondary drivers, such as teenagers. If the teenage driver exceeds these speed limits, this system can then alert the driver, as well as provide a report of the teenager’s driving behavior to the parents.Read more: Chevy Malibu Named 2017 Best Midsize Car for Families by US News & World Report
