The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid is the fuel economic version of the regular midsize Malibu sedan. It competes with the Ford Fusion Hybrid, Toyota Camry Hybrid, and Honda Accord Hybrid. This year, the standard MyLink multimedia system has been updated with new features.

The Malibu Hybrid has a mildly aggressive front-end with a double-stacked front grille and C-shape motifs at the lower fascia. The rear fascia has diffuser-like styling, giving it a sportier look. Standard features include LED daytime running lights, power/heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, and 17-inch aluminum wheels. A power moonroof is also optional.

Under the hood, the Malibu Hybrid is powered by a standard 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine, a two-motor hybrid system, a continuously variable automatic transmission, and a 1.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is stored between the rear seat and trunk. Fuel economy for the Malibu Hybrid is an EPA-estimated 49/43 mpg city/highway. The Malibu Hybrid can reach up to 55 mph on all-electric power.

Inside, the Malibu Hybrid has a standard fabric interior with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. It has 11.6 cubic feet of rear cargo capacity. The center stack features a standard MyLink multimedia system that includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded with a larger 8-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot (subscription required), and a Bose premium audio system. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, remote keyless entry, remote vehicle start, push-button start, cruise control, and a Driver Information Center. Leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a wireless phone charging station are available as well.

Standard safety features include a backup camera, an electronic stability control system, and 10 airbags come standard. Also returning is the now standard Teen Driver program, which allows parent to set controls, check driving habits, and encourage safe driving habits for their teenagers when they are not in the vehicle. An available Driver Confidence Package includes front automatic braking at low-speeds, a pedestrian-detecting automatic braking system, front- and rear-park assist, a blindspot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision alert.
