The 2018 Malibu has the space for up to five passengers with front seats that are comfortable for any ride length. The back seats are very spacious, having more leg-room than the average mid-size sedan. If you have car-seat needs, you bet you’ll be safe with the two sets of LATCH anchors on the outboard seats and the middle seat tether anchor. The Malibu’s trunk has a spacious 15.8 cubic feet, deeper than it appears from the exterior. The seats in the back fold down, which helps haul larger items that require more space than the trunk.
Standard technology features for the 2018 Malibu are keyless entry, push button start, six-speaker audio system, and Rear Seat Reminder. The Rear Seat Reminder provides five audible chimes and a visual alert in the driver information center when the second-row door is opened and closed just before or during a trip. Though this may seem like a short list of features, there are many features available for the Malibu.
Optional features include Chevrolet MyLink infotainment, a touchscreen display, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, USB port, rearview camera, and a WiFi hotspot. To add to the list, the Malibu also has a 360-degree surround-view camera available, available, navigation and satellite radio, wireless smartphone charging, and teen driver system available. The Malibu has leather upholstery available and heated and ventilated seats are available.
If you have a teen driver, you’ll want to make sure they’re safe and that they’re driving properly when you’re not in the vehicle with them. The 2018 Malibu has available teen driver technology with features that mute audio when the front seat driver or passenger aren’t wearing seat belts, automatically enables active safety assistance, provides a report card when safety features were triggered, and gives audible and visual warnings when limits are surpassed such as maximum music volume and maximum speed.
The Malibu’s 10 exterior paint colors include: Iridescent Pearl Tricoat, Silver Ice Metallic, Blue Velvet Metallic, Nightfall Gray Metallic, Sandy Ridge Metallic, Summit White, Mosaic Black Metallic, Arctic Blue Metallic, Pepperdust Metallic, and Cajun Red Tintcoat.
The Malibu has two turbocharged engines. The 1.5L turbo and the 2.0L turbo. The 1.5L engine is standard and is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. It has 160 horsepower, enough for daily driving needs and fuel efficiency. The engine uses variable valve timing, direct injection, and stop/start technology to help save fuel and be more efficient. The 2.0L engine is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission and 250 horsepower.
Driving the 2018 Malibu is enjoyable. The ride is relaxing, and the suspension system creates a smooth and quiet ride.
