BRYN MACKINNON: I'm Edmond's Editor Bryn MacKinnon, and here's a features rundown of the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu. Among the four trim levels and three power trains, we recommend the Malibu Hybrid LTE. It has a good mix of features, performance, and efficiency. We also suggest adding the optional convenience and technology package. We found the 1.5 liter base engine to be a little weak by comparison and upgrading to the hybrid shouldn't break the bank. We deducted points for the occasionally clumsy transmission that can be sluggish and prone to odd lurches when slowing to a stop. Thick roof pillars and a high rear deck lid can cause some issues for outward visibility. Our rear-view camera is standard on all but the base model Malibu. The standard Malibus have almost 16-cubic feet of trunk space which is about average for the class. Unfortunately, the hybrid is reduced to 11.6 cubic feet, but there is still a rear seat pass through for longer items. The rear seats can accommodate taller passengers, but the sloping roof line can make it feel a little confining back there. The interior is pleasantly modern, but materials quality is only about average for the class. We caution against the lighter colored dashboards as they can cause some distracting reflections. The Chevy MyLink system gets high marks for its ease of use as well as the inclusion of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You also get a Wi-Fi Hotspot. The front seats are firm, yet comfortable with plenty of lateral support. They're also very spacious with little fatigue to report after several hours behind the wheel. Chevy Malibu's top competitors include Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Mazda 6. Bottom line-- since it's completely redesigned for the 2016 model year, the latest Chevrolet Malibu is very competitive in the midsize sedan category. Some rivals might boast better driving dynamics or more features for the money. But the Malibu provides a solid and stylish all-around package. [MUSIC PLAYING]
