Chevrolet Malibu 2014 Review

Chevrolet has taken wraps off the new 2014 Malibu, which is now roomier, refined and more fuel efficient. Chevrolet has tried to push its way back to the top of midsize sedans, the biggest sales segment of the auto industry.

The front-end appearance is influenced by the all-new Impala. It gets a more prominent lower grille on the front fascia, hood extended down and a wider chrome grille with black grille texture.

Chassis and suspension updates contribute to the 2014 Malibu’s more refined driving experience, including rebound springs that are internal to the struts.

Inside, redesigned seats contribute to greater rear-seat space and greater comfort. The Malibu’s redesigned center console has a longer armrest, along with a pair of cup holders and dedicated storage for two cell phones.

New Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert safety features are offered, adding to the protection from a car that received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score in the New Car Assessment Program.

The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu is powered by an all-new Ecotec 2.5L Intake Valve Lift Control DOHC four-cylinder engine with direct injection. The new 2.5L is SAE-certified at 196 horsepower (145 kW) and 186 lb-ft of torque (253 Nm). New start/stop technology shuts down the 2.5L engine to save fuel when the Malibu stops momentarily, such as at stoplights, contributing to an estimated 5-percent increase in city fuel economy.

Additionally, the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu’s is also available with a 2.0L turbo engine delivering 259 horsepower (193 kW) at 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) torque.
