2014 Chevrolet Malibu Overview
Chevrolet's Malibu midsize sedan was redesigned last year and received new engine choices, a fresh appearance and a selection of new safety and entertainment features — and sales fell. That prompted Chevrolet to make significant changes for 2014. The Malibu has seating for five and competes with the Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima. A mild hybrid version dubbed Malibu Eco is also offered.
The Malibu has a bolder front styling for 2014 and sits on standard 16-inch alloy wheels, available 17-, 18-, 19-inch wheels. Additional options include heated side mirrors and power sunroof.
The steering-wheel comes standard with controls for cruise control and stereo, and has available heated leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, USB connectivity and Bluetooth streaming audio, and MyLink entertainment and information system. The trunk has 16.3 cubic feet of cargo room.

The engines can run on regular gas, but the turbo four-cylinder prefers premium. All trims come standard with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Interior safety features 10 standard airbags, while all-disc antilock brakes and electronic stability system with traction control help keep the vehicle glued to the road.
