Like many famous Chevy models, the Malibu has a storied history, emerging onto the scene in 1964 as an upscale trim for the acclaimed Chevelle. Over the years, it has taken many forms, from ultra-cool convertible to what we have all come to know and love today, a classy midsize sedan. It has had the opportunity to grace the tracks of NASCAR and every highway in America, and when it comes to a midsize sedan you can count on for your daily drive, the Malibu is an absolute winner.

Refined Cabin Space

There's a reason why the Malibu has been a star in the Chevy lineup for almost 60 years, and that's due to the fact that it's always evolving and catering to our needs. Nowadays, drivers want modern comfort, which is exactly what you'll find in the 2023 Chevy Malibu. Inside its pristinely laid-out cabin, you'll find comfortable, high-quality appointments, an available eight-way power driver's seat, plenty of space throughout, and a quiet ambiance, thanks to its acoustic-laminated windshield. The Malibu also offers an abundance of legroom, 38.1 inches in the back seat, so no matter where you're seated, you'll be guaranteed to enjoy the ride. Convenience reigns supreme as well, with ample trunk space able to accommodate up to 15.7 cu.ft. of cargo, as well as a myriad of storage options inside to maintain a clutter-free ride, no matter where you're heading.

Extraordinary Exterior

Outside, the Malibu exhibits a classy demeanor, with pronounced body lines and modern vibes radiating from front to back. Choosing its top-level 2LT model will allow you to enjoy 19-inch aluminum wheels, dazzling LED headlamps, heated, power-adjustable mirrors, and more sophisticated styling. The 2023 Malibu lineup also includes three special editions: the Midnight Edition, Sport Edition, and Redline Edition, all featuring exclusive elements to make the Malibu stand out from the rest. Sleek black accents on the Midnight Edition provide an air of mystery to this classic, while a blacked-out grille on the Sport Edition and black and red elements on the Redline Edition gives the Malibu an immense amount of character.

You'll also find a refreshed color palette for the 2023 model year, showcasing vibrant new hues to really add some pizzazz to this Chevy favorite.

Enjoyably Efficient

The 2023 Chevy Malibu is armed with a 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder, the only engine in its lineup this year. Chevy has always been known for its high-performing engines, and this turbocharged option is no exception. Delivering 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, the Malibu offers a pleasant ride with just enough acceleration to keep you engaged during that early morning commute into the office. Perhaps where the Malibu really impresses is with its fuel efficiency, as it's able to get 27 MPG in the city and 35 MPG on the highway. This is why so many everyday commuters and daily drivers are drawn to this Chevy staple because they know they'll be able to travel confidently without overspending at the pump.

Remarkably Smooth

Its turbocharged four-cylinder is paired up nicely with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which delivers a smooth, refined ride, making for a cozy trip to work each day. Accurate steering and effortless handling make it an easy pick, especially for those venturing into the bustling city, attempting to navigate dense traffic and find a streetside spot outside of the office. Thanks to its acoustic-laminated windshield, you'll get to enjoy a quiet, peaceful ride inside. Equipped with a MacPherson strut front suspension and a four-link rear suspension, you'll feel ultimately controlled on the road, even when it gets a bit bumpy. Plus, with standard variable-effort electric power steering, a responsive ride is to be expected in this timeless favorite.

A ride inside of the 2023 Chevy Malibu is utterly enjoyable, thanks to its lively engine, smooth operating transmission, and fine-tuned suspension system.
