Full Review

The Chevrolet Malibu continues to make tweaks for 2015 that allow this mid-size sedan to compete in a segment with competitors such as the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry. The Malibu has been around since the 1960s and has grown leaps and bounds since the V8 rear-wheel-drive days. Chevrolet reintroduced the Malibu in 1997, after a 14-year hiatus. Since then, it has become a relevant car thanks to the evolution of its powertrain, exterior design and interior features.

The exterior of the Chevrolet Malibu got a refresh just last year, changing the design of both the front and rear ends that it carries over for this year. The refresh has the Malibu looking a lot like its big brother, the Impala, which is a standout in its segment. While the wheelbase is shorter on this car than most others in the class, giving it a somewhat awkward look, the Malibu is still a handsome-looking car. This mid-size family sedan even gets some sporty features such as performance-inspired taillights and stainless-steel exhaust tips on the top-of-the-line trim. Available in three trim levels, the Malibu can be equipped to suit the needs of its buyer from basic to more specific. Whichever way you go, the Chevrolet Malibu will bring bold styling to the road.

The interior of the Malibu is the real standout in terms of features and comfort, but not for everyone. Due to the small wheelbase, a major complaint for the Malibu is the tight legroom in rear seats. Fortunately, this is one of the few complaints we have about the cabin. The front passengers are treated to plenty of room and very comfortable seats. As for the design, the Malibu gets some details that make it feel upscale for its class. Chrome accents and available leather give it a high-end touch, while the easy-to-use controls and gauges add practicality. The Malibu also features a larger-than-average trunk at 16.3 cubic feet.

The technology specs of the Chevrolet Malibu were already ample in 2014, depending on the trim line, but they get even better for the 2015 model. For this year, Chevy has added 4G LTE connectivity to OnStar, which allows the Malibu to become a wireless hotspot for devices that require internet connection. Also available is the seven-inch touchscreen that displays Chevy’s MyLink connectivity system. This system connects to the driver’s smartphone and allows them to perform hands-free calling and texting in a safe manner. MyLink uses an icon-based system, which should be familiar to smartphone users; it responds well and works smoothly.

As for powertrain, the Malibu comes with two available engine configurations. New for 2015, Chevy has dropped the battery-assisted Eco drivetrain completely. The base engine is a 2.5-litre four-cylinder that produces 196 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. The optional engine is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that is only offered on the upper-level trims. It generates 259 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. All Malibus get a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

Overall, the 2015 Chevrolet Malibu is a great family car that will please in terms of design and practicality. Aside from the somewhat tight rear seats, there is not too much ill to be spoken of the Malibu, and we believe that it deserves a bit more credit in the class.

Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 29 mpg combined (25 city/36 highway), aided by a barely perceptible stop-start system that automatically turns off the engine when the car comes to a halt.

Interiors and Special Features:

The 2015 Chevrolet Malibu is blessed with an unusually upscale cabin by segment standards, at least in terms of design. The dashboard's graceful curves are complemented by a tasteful smattering of metallic accents. The materials are mostly impressive as well, with ample soft-touch surfaces, though some of the buttons and stalks have a less substantial feel than we'd like.

Safety features:

The 2015 Chevy Malibu comes standard with antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front knee airbags, front side airbags, rear side airbags and side curtain airbags. Also standard is the OnStar telematics system, which includes automatic crash notification, on-demand roadside assistance, remote door unlocking and stolen vehicle assistance. A rearview camera is available, as is an Advanced Safety package with forward collision warning, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems.
