The Chevrolet Malibu has been completely redesigned for 2013, featuring an all-new styling inside and out, more economical new powertrains, improved ride and handling, more safety equipment and the new Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with integrated Pandora and Stitcher audio streaming. Compared to the previous Malibu, this one is only slightly shorter, but it has a bit more interior volume plus more shoulder and hip room. Chevrolet is doing away with the V6 and instead going with an all-4-cylinder engine lineup. For now, there's a conventional 2.5L 4-cylinder model, as well as a green, fuel-saving 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and electric motor combination good for EPA ratings of 25 mpg city, 37 highway. A turbocharged version of the Malibu is expected later in the model year.

Special features for 2013 View special features +

The all-new Malibu competes with mid-size 4-door sedans like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Fusion and Hyundai Sonata; but with its 2013 redesign, the Malibu is being reconfigured more toward busy, always-connected parents and those who place a priority on fuel efficiency. For that, at somewhat less than the Camry Hybrid or Fusion Hybrid, the Malibu ECO stands out as a strong value--especially for those who plan to do more mileage on the highway. The Malibu should also hit the mark for shoppers who want a fresh design, as well as those who need to stay connected. Design-wise, the Malibu looks fresh and up-to-date with the rest of the Chevrolet lineup. And with the standard MyLink system, drivers can get simple hands-free calling functions as well as entertainment through streaming-audio apps.
