What Is the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu?
The Malibu is Chevrolet’s mid-size family sedan, which seats up to five. Power comes from a standard 160-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine or an optional 250-hp, turbo 2.0-liter. The Malibu competes with mid-size cars such as the Ford Fusion, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.
What’s New on the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu?
The RS trim level gets black grille inserts and a chrome grille surround, but there are no other significant changes this year.
What Features in the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu Are Most Important?
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity is standard, and 4G LTE internet connectivity (data trial included) is present on most trim levels. Available active safety features include blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and automatic high-beam headlights.
2020 Chevrolet Malibu Vs. 2020 Toyota Camry: How Do They Compare?
Both the Malibu and Camry have spacious cabins that are good for families, but where the Malibu relies on a choice of turbo four-cylinder engines, the Camry offers four-cylinder and V-6 power. The sedans’ fuel efficiency is comparable, but the Camry comes standard with important active safety features that are optional on the Malibu.
Should I Buy the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu?
The Malibu doesn’t stand out from the crowd of mid-size sedans, all of which are attracting fewer shoppers as SUVs take over as the family vehicle of choice. The Malibu’s 2.0-liter engine provides sufficient acceleration but runs best on premium gas, and important active safety features are optional at a time when competitors have made them standard.
