How the New 2017 Malibu is Surpassing the Competition

Last year's model gave priority to building a five-passenger family car that didn't feel cramped. This year's model continues that ethos with plenty of headroom for everybody from the tiniest tot to the high school basketball player.

The trunk gives owners almost 16 cubic feet of storage space to work with – perfect for the big weekly buy at the grocery store or packing enough luggage for an extended road trip. And with amenities like USB chargers in the rear seats and nine-speaker Bose audio systems, passenger enjoyment during the ride is assured.

It Has More Get Up & Go

By adding a nine-speed automatic transmission to the Malibu's 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine, up from an eight-speed in last year's model, measurable improvements have been made in acceleration, top speed and even fuel economy. Going zero to 60 in 5.7 seconds is a pretty snappy turn for a four-door sedan, even in Arizona, and doing a quarter-mile in just over 14 seconds is equally respectable.

All the Bells & Whistles are Equipped

While the Malibu isn't considered a luxury car, there are a number of creature comforts that keep driver and passengers from feeling they've been stuffed into a bare box with wheels. Drivers can enjoy a heated leather steering wheel and power adjustable seats with memory functions, while passengers can charge their cell phones wirelessly, listen to XM satellite radio, and those riding shotgun can enjoy heated seats alongside the driver. Additionally, a number of safety features make the Malibu highly capable under adverse driving conditions, with a five-star rating from the NTHSA and IIHS rating of Top Safety Pick.
