The 2018 Chevrolet Malibu
The new Chevrolet Malibu 2LZ Premier interior packaging has a spacious feel about it and plenty of leg room for the rear seated passengers. The center stack comes standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and a conventional looking dash and console in a leather-looking synthetic wrap.
Solid mid-size with great appeal
The shape of the new Chevrolet Malibu sedan is both bold and sleek, and it comes with a good safety record. The charming interior is understated and well-designed for passenger requirements: there is nothing boring about this car. The ride is quiet and comfortable, and the updated design of the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu is now lighter, brighter, and longer. With subtle changes of a well- proportioned long new body, narrower twin grilles, and high-strength steel trim in more areas complement the balance of the latest Chevrolet Malibu from front to rear.
Although it has a relatively smaller wheelbase, lighter than on previous models, the new Chevrolet Malibu is one of the most spacious mid-seizers with a cleverly designed charming interior packaging. There is a feeling of space that is accentuated by the excellent amount of legroom for the rear passengers. The dash and console trim comes with a leather-looking synthetic wrap. Noise cancellation equipment and sound deadening devices help to suppress road vibrations as well as power sounds, giving it a smoother ride.
The 2018 Chevrolet Malibu has been highly scored by safety officials. The IIHS has given the Malibu a Top Safety Pick award, and federal testers give it a five (out of five) star score overall.

The new Chevrolet Malibu comes complete with a rear-view camera and 18-inch silver aluminum wheels, as well as an acoustic windshield for cutting out the noise and giving a quieter ride.
