The Chevrolet Malibu gets many small updates for the 2014 model year. Engines have been updated, the front fascia receives a redesign and a couple of new features sneak their way into the lineup. The big news for the engine is stop/start technology, which shuts the engine off any time the car is stopped. The moment the driver touches the gas pedal, the car restarts and rolls away like normal, without having used any gas while idling. Normally a premium feature, stop/start technology comes on any Malibu equipped with the base 2.5L engine. Chevrolet's MyLink system has also been upgraded with a Siri hands free mode that can read text messages to busy drivers. Finally, a little bit more knee room has been added for rear seat passengers.
Fuel-efficient powertrains; high-mileage Malibu ECO model; fresh, contemporary styling; MyLink connectivity; improved ride and handling
The 2014 Malibu competes with mid-size 4-door sedans such as the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Fusion and Hyundai Sonata; but with its recent 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 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.
