The Chevy Malibu first started of as a coupe trim version of the Chevrolet Chevelle. But for the present it branched off as its own vehicle as a midsize 4 door sedan. It has a 4 cylinder engine offering great fuel economy. Its a decent sedan for everyday commuting with slight luxury features for newer models. The ninth generation Malibu’s are becoming a bit larger and is available with hybrid options. With over 10 million Malibu’s sold it remains one of Chevy’s jewels of the brand.
