The Chevrolet Malibu offers a spacious interior with lots of front-seat headroom, perfect for drivers of any size. The Malibu has been a staple in the auto market for many years, and Chevrolet continues to improve on this midsize sedan. It’s currently the only midsize sedan produced by a traditional domestic automaker. If you’re in the market for a sedan, the Chevrolet Malibu is an excellent choice for a used vehicle.

Most used Chevrolet Malibus are available in several trim levels, including L, LS, RS, LT, and Premier. You can expect this four-door, five-passenger sedan to come with features such as 16-inch or 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, noise-reducing glass, keyless entry and ignition, steering wheel controls, and air conditioning. Depending on trim level, you might also see a unique grille, rear spoiler, and sunroof.
One area that the Chevrolet Malibu shines in as a midsize sedan is fuel economy. You can expect to get 29 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway on most model years of the Chevrolet Malibu. This fuel efficiency helps keep you on the road longer and away from the pump, saving you both time and money. Newer models also have stop/start technology, which automatically shuts off the engine when you’re sitting idle to provide even more fuel economy.
Chevrolet understands that drivers enjoy performance-enhancing features that improve the overall driving experience and has added a plethora of features to that end. Your used Chevrolet Malibu will come with front-wheel drive to provide you with a smooth drive every time. The standard StabiliTrak system with traction control helps keep you on your intended path and maintains traction regardless of road or weather conditions.
Most Malibus come with either a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with a continuously variable automatic transmission that produces 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Another engine option in the Malibu is a turbocharged 2.0-liter with a nine-speed automatic transmission that delivers 250 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Either engine provides you with plenty of get-up-and-go to keep you at the head of the pack.
The most recent models of the Chevrolet Malibu offer the latest in Chevy’s technology with the Infotainment System 3. This system has an easy-to-use 8-inch touch screen, with newer models offering wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. You can pair the infotainment system with the standard six-speaker sound system or a premium nine-speaker Bose audio system. Used Chevrolet Malibus offer the convenience and peace of mind of OnStar-connected services. You can choose from the basic plan or guidance plan from OnStar based on your needs. Higher-end trims also offer an upgraded infotainment system with navigation.
You may not think of hauling anything with your used Chevrolet Malibu because it’s a midsized sedan, but the Malibu offers a towing capacity of up to 1,000 pounds. Depending on the year of your used Malibu, you can expect a cargo capacity between 13.2 and 15.7 cubic feet. You can load up a small utility trailer, small pop-up camper, Jet Ski, ATV, or canoe and kayaks for a weekend of fun and adventure with your Malibu.
The Chevrolet Malibu comes with safety and driver-assistance features to keep you and your passengers safe on the road. Depending on model year and trim, you will get features such as forward collision mitigation, lane change alert with side blind zone alert, and adaptive cruise control. Automatic parking assist can help you get into difficult parking spots easily and avoid any parking lot accidents. The high-strength frame and advanced air bag system will also work to keep everyone protected in the event of a collision.
Additional driver-assistance features can be found in recent model years. Your used Malibu may have Teen Driver, which allows you to customize the setting to encourage safe and responsible driving. Buckle to Drive is another newer feature found on late-model used Chevrolet Malibus. It prevents the vehicle from being moved out of park until the driver’s seatbelt is fastened. Parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-keeping assist are additional available features on various trims. Collision mitigation braking applies the brakes automatically to avoid or minimize a collision.
