After a full redesign for 2013 and an extensive update for 2014, Chevrolet’s midsize sedan rolls into 2015 with few changes. Two child-safety seats fit comfortably in the Malibu’s backseat, and the sedan’s extra Latch anchor makes its backseat even more flexible for parents in terms of where they can install car seats with the Latch system.
How many car seats fit in the second row? Two
What We Like
- The two sets of Latch anchors are easy to access and we appreciate the middle seat’s bonus additional anchor; this setup allows parents to use the Latch system to install a seat in middle position.
- Both the infant car seat and the rear-facing convertible installed easily; we did not have to move the front passenger seat forward to accommodate either one.
- In forward-facing mode, the convertible was also easy to install and fit well. The three tether anchors on the rear shelf are accessible.
What We Don’t
- The booster seat fit well, but the buckles are on floppy bases. This can make it difficult for kids to reach them. The booster seat also has a tendency to slide on top of the floppy buckle.
