A Look at the the Top-Rated 2017 Chevy Malibu
The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu boasts excellent cargo space, a comfy ride quality, and intuitive infotainment features that make it one of this year’s most valuable sedans to buy. In fact, it’s rated the No. 1 Best Midsize Car by U.S. News for good reason.
Superior Style and Family-friendly Function on a Budget
The 2017 Chevy Malibu starts at a low price, giving buyers on a budget the chance to save on a brand-new car. While the base trim is a bit sparse, upgradable features are available for a little more. You can even pick and choose your features from package options and a la carte items, allowing you to customize your perfect Malibu to help you stay under your budget.
Where the 2017 Malibu shines is in its family-friendly features. The new Malibu won the Best Midsize Cars for Families award because it offers ample space, excellent value, and a great fuel economy. Its safety scores are even among the highest in its class. This is thanks to available safety features such as lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring.
Despite being a family-friendly vehicle at its core, the Malibu is an agile vehicle with windswept lines, sleek finishes, and a surprisingly sporty ride that keeps any driver impressed.
Choose From Four Trim Levels
While the base model Malibu L is basic, it does feature keyless entry and ignition, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth phone connectivity, OnStar, a six-speaker sound system, cruise control, and a six-speed automatic transmission. In addition to the L, you can also choose from the LS, LT, and Premier trims, each of which adds to the previous trim.
The Malibu LS comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, 4G LTE connectivity with mobile Wi-Fi, a quieter cabin, Bluetooth audio, a 7-inch touch screen with smartphone integration, and the MyLink infotainment system.
Stepping up to the LT version adds bigger wheels, heated mirrors, satellite radio, rear climate vents, and an eight-way power driver seat. Add-on packages allow you to include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an upgraded touch screen, remote ignition, wireless smartphone charging, additional USB charging ports, and a nine-speaker Bose sound system.
The top-of-the-line Malibu Premier features all the above package options with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 250 horsepower. This version features 18-inch wheels, ventilated front seats, upgraded exterior styling details, a navigation system, and a heated steering wheel.
Discover Handy Storage Possibilities
Another aspect that has given the 2017 Malibu the status of this year’s best family vehicle is its storage possibilities. In addition to a glove box, armrest bin, cup holders, and door bins, the car boasts a media bin for other odds and ends.
In terms of cargo space, the Malibu offers a 15.8-cubic-foot trunk that’s large enough for luggage and golf bags. The sedan also offers four LATCH points and three upper tether mounts for all types of child safety seat accommodation.
