One of the oldest nameplates in the auto industry, the Chevrolet Malibu first appeared in 1964. Several generations followed until 1983, when the Malibu went on hiatus until 1997. Always a mid-size car, the Malibu has become alternately larger and smaller with the times, always remaining popular with families. That doesn’t mean it’s always been the best choice, but the current Malibu is a worthy contender in a very competitive class. Conventional and hybrid powertrains are available.
Commuter vehicles have a minimum EPA-estimated mileage of 30 mpg combined. May require specific trim level and/or optional features.
Small Family vehicles include mid-size and larger sedans, hatchbacks, wagons, SUVs and minivans with four doors and five seats.
