2020 Chevrolet Malibu Review

  • Spacious interior with lots of front-seat headroom
  • Easy-to-use touchscreen interface
  • Lackluster acceleration from the base 1.5-liter engine
  • Limited outward visibility
  • Interior looks dated compared to rivals
  • Several optional packages have been renamed
  • The Malibu Hybrid has been discontinued
  • Part of the ninth Malibu generation introduced for 2016

First, the good news. The 2020 Chevrolet Malibu rides well on the highway and has a roomy cabin fitted with an easy-to-use infotainment system. It is, at its core, a fundamentally solid midsize sedan. However, it also happens to be surrounded by a deep class of rival sedans that outdo it in a few areas.

Like its competitors, the Malibu can be equipped with different powertrains. There are two turbocharged four-cylinder engine options: a base 1.5-liter and a 2.0-liter engine. We like the zesty 2.0-liter engine, but the base 1.5-liter engine — the one most commonly found at dealer lots — is sluggish.

On the inside, there's roomy seating up front. But there's less rear legroom compared to what you'll find in some other top sedans, and the overall cabin aesthetic is a bit underwhelming. The report on the infotainment system is mixed, too. GM's Chevrolet Link 3 system features useful smartphone integration and big graphics, but its standard display looks lower-res than the competition.

Overall, the Malibu is an acceptable choice, especially if you manage to get a great deal or are interested in the hybrid version. But we also suggest shopping some of the other Edmunds' top-rated sedans such as the Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata and Mazda 6.

Which Malibu does Edmunds recommend?

We used to recommend the hybrid as it provided the best combination of features, performance and value. But since Chevrolet discontinued it this year, the next best choice is the Premier. Yes, it's the most expensive version of the Malibu, but its more powerful engine makes daily driving a lot more enjoyable.

Chevrolet Malibu models

The 2020 Chevrolet Malibu is a five-seat, four-door midsize sedan that's available in five trim levels: L, LS, RS, LT and Premier. All but the Premier come with the same 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and CVT automatic combination that sends 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels.

The L trim is the base model, but it comes with the bare necessities such as air conditioning and extras such as steering wheel controls, keyless entry and ignition, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.

The LS, RS and LT all feature increasing levels of content based off the L model. The LS adds some creature comforts such as noise-reducing glass and OnStar, but it really just paves the way for some option packages. The RS adds convenience amenities such as power-adjustable seats and style accessories such as a rear spoiler and unique grille. With the LT, you'll get satellite radio, front-seat heating, and dual-zone climate control with a vent for rear-seat passengers.

The Premier model upgrades to a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and a nine-speed transmission that produces 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Feature content is similar to the LT model but with the addition of built-in navigation, a nine-speaker audio system, leather seating and a sunroof, among other features.

Several driver safety aids are optional on the Malibu, including forward collision mitigation and lane departure warning.

4/5 stars, Surprisingly Nice!
Cory,
LT 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl Turbo CVT)
I rented a 2020 Malibu with the base 1.5L engine and the CVT transmission which I had initially expected to perform horribly on the highway. I was wrong and this car was a pleasant surprise in almost every regard. I averaged 37 MPG in mixed city/highway driving, the car rode very smoothly and handled better than expected. The seats were comfortable, even on a 5 hour drive and there was enough space for 4 adults to be comfortable the whole time. The android auto worked flawlessly and the heated seats were quick to warm up and the settings allowed for optimal comfort. Overall, I was highly impressed with this car, particularly because I expected to be disappointed. My lease on my Terrain ends in a few months and I may replace it with a new Malibu. The Malibu handles better, gets better MPG and overall was more fun to drive.
4/5 stars, Sticking with the Malibu
Rick katai,
Premier 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 9A)
I am a car guy. I absolutely do not like, or need an SUV. It is getting more and more difficult to find a car made by an American manufacturer. That being said, I am very pleased with my Chevy Malibu with the top of the line trim package. It basically loads up the car with all the goodies. I chose the black cherry metallic color with a black and gray interior that garners many compliments. The 4 cylinder turbo along with the 9 speed transmission gives good performance along with about 30mpg combined city/highway mileage. It is a very comfortable long distance road car. The Bose sound system is very good. My only complaint and warning to new car buyers is the totally worthless spare tire inflater system instead of an actual spare tire. It does NOT work. My dealer quickly got me an actual tire and jack at no charge.
5/5 stars, The car I didn't know I wanted
Glen,
LT 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl Turbo CVT)
I went to Auto Nation Arrowhead to look at a 2019 Impala LT I had been checking on line and when I sat down with Debbie Ponticelli, who I was referred to by a friend who has bought a few from her over the years. She sat me in this white Malibu with a four cylinder engine, everything I thought I didn't want. No color and a small motor. But took the car for a test ride which I was fairly impressed with, so I went through with the deal. Now that I've had it for a couple weeks, I'm getting the feel for how it drives and the car is starting to adapt to my driving style. I'm very happy with my purchase. Mind you I put down a minimum of 300 miles a week. Have about 1200 on it now. Would most definitely recommend a new Malibu to anyone who's looking for a spacious and zippy daily driver. NICE CAR
5/5 stars, Love my Malibu
Barry Cantor,
RS 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl Turbo CVT)
Bought a 2020 RS, the gas mileage is amazing (37 on the highway), the 1.5L engine has plenty of power and the cvt tranny is very smooth. The black bow ties, grill, and spoiler are a great addition to this model. This car looks sharp. The Apple CarPlay is great for all iPhone users. I would recommend this to anyone as a daily commuter.

2020 Chevrolet Malibu video

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]

Chevrolet Malibu vs. the competition

Chevrolet Malibu vs. Chevrolet Impala

The Impala is larger, and that provides a few benefits: a bit more rear legroom and a roomier trunk, which allows for bigger bags for longer trips. The Impala's powertrains aren't as sophisticated as the Malibu's, but some drivers may prefer its traditional automatic transmission and available V6 engine.

Compare Chevrolet Malibu & Chevrolet Impala features 

Chevrolet Malibu vs. Chevrolet Cruze

The Cruze is a good alternative to the larger Malibu. Although the rear seat of the Malibu isn't impressive compared to the back seats of its competitors, most passengers would gladly take it over the smaller Cruze's bench seat. Besides cost, the main advantage to going with the Cruze is its sportier handling.

Compare Chevrolet Malibu & Chevrolet Cruze features 

Chevrolet Malibu vs. Ford Fusion

Many drivers will prefer the Fusion because of its more powerful base engine. However, that preference will come at the expense of fuel economy. Both the Fusion and the Malibu offer hybrid variants for the truly fuel-conscious. Interior and exterior dimensions are a wash between them, and they both feature easy-to-use infotainment systems.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Chevrolet Malibu?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
