2017 Chevrolet Malibu Expert Rundown

Looking for a roomy midsize sedan that's also stylish? The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu might be a good fit. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

JOSH SADLIER: This is automotive editor Josh Sadlier with an Edmunds Expert Rundown of the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu. The Malibu is Chevrolet's mid-size sedan. Recently redesigned, the base engine is a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. We're not so high on that one. But if you step up to the Premier trim level, get the 2-liter turbo, it's got a lot of power. It's got a new nine-speed automatic for 2017. We're a fan of that one. Overall, the Malibu is pretty rewarding to drive by segment standards. Can handle itself pretty well around turns. Comfortable over bumps. Significant step up from Malibu's past. There's also a hybrid version of the Malibu. Obviously, better fuel economy, but performance does suffer a bit. Step inside the Malibu and you'll find a reasonably capacious back seat. Of course, that's expected for this segment. But you'll have no trouble fitting a couple of six-footers side by side, assuming the people in front are accommodating about it. Interior's quality has certainly improved for this generation. Previously, the Malibu was toward the bottom of the pack in that regard. Now we consider it competitive.The eight-inch touchscreen in the center of the dash is also a high point. It's responsive. It's nice to look at. One of the better ones you'll find in this class. It's not all peaches and cream with the 2017 Malibu. Do have some sparse equipment on base L trim. Not huge fans of the outward visibility. But that's the price you pay for the styling, which kind of reminds us of an Audi A7 if you squint. For more Edmunds Expert Rundowns, click the link to subscribe.
