2015 Chevrolet Malibu Overview

New/Notable:
  • Midsize sedan with seating for five passengers
  • Up to 36 mpg/highway
  • New OnStar technology with 4G LTE and Wi-Fi hotspot capability
The 2015 Chevrolet Malibu returns with the same bold forward styling and a pair of powerful four-cylinder engines.

After an eventful 2014, there are no large changes in store for the 2015 model, save for a handful of new exterior color options, some slight suspension tweaking, and new Wi-Fi hot spot capability. The Malibu was originally redesigned for 2013, but a poor reception from consumers and a botched launch strategy doomed that car from the start; just one year later, Chevy came back with yet another new Malibu which had more aggressive styling and interior upgrades, and that’s the Malibu that comes back for 2015.

The most prominent styling feature is a “dual-port” front grille that has chrome accents and a large bowtie logo mounted on the body-colored trim piece that splits the grille in two. 16-inch alloy wheels come standard, with larger wheels up to 19-inches in size optional.

Under the hood, the Malibu offers a pair of four-cylinder engines, one tailored towards efficiency and the other for performance. The base engine is a 196-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder, while those looking for more performance can opt for a 259-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Both engines come mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. Fuel economy ratings are average for this segment, 25/36 mpg city/highway for the base engine and 21/30 mpg for the turbocharged engine.

Moving inside, the Malibu added new seats last year that increased legroom for both front and rear seat occupants without making the car any bigger, a very welcome change. Behind the standard 60/40-split folding rear seat is 16.3 cubic feet of cargo room. Standard features include air conditioning, cruise control, power windows/locks, and remote keyless entry. The Malibu also offers a large list of available tech options, including Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system, navigation system with a seven-inch touch screen, dual-zone automatic climate control, and Bluetooth connectivity. Leather upholstery and heated front seats are also available on higher trim levels.

The 2015 Malibu performed exceptionally well on crash tests, earning top marks from both the IIHS and the NHTSA. Standard safety features include 10 airbags, all-disc antilock brakes, a six-month subscription to GM’s OnStar service, and an electronic stability system with traction control. Also available are blind spot warnings and rear cross-traffic alerts.
