If you’ve been searching for a midsize sedan with lots of interior space, a great ride, excellent driving dynamics, and a user-friendly infotainment system, you’ll want to take a close look at the 2023 Chevrolet Malibu. Customers at the Prescott Valley Chevrolet dealer also love the Malibu’s sporty styling and low starting price.
The 2023 Chevrolet Malibu seats five passengers and is offered in four trim levels: LS, RS, LT, and 2LT. All models are equipped with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine developing 160 horses and 184 lb-ft of torque. According to the Prescott Valley Chevrolet dealership, this engine is coupled to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that sends power to the front wheels. Car and Driver tested the 2023 Malibu and recorded a 7.8-second zero-to-60-mph time. The 2023 Chevy Malibu gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 27 mpg city/35 mpg highway.*
Autotrader gave the Chevy Malibu praise, writing: “... [The] Malibu feels light on its feet, sporty and totally comfortable yet composed in corners. Its cabin also is well-insulated from road and engine noise.”
When you step inside the cabin of the 2023 Chevy Malibu, you’ll love the contemporary styling. The interior features soft-touch surfaces and high-quality materials. The infotainment system is user-friendly, with icons that are easy to understand. The driver and passengers will remain relaxed throughout the drive, thanks to the Malibu’s comfortable seats. There’s plenty of leg room to allow everyone to stretch their legs, even in the rear. In fact, there’s a total of 38.1 inches of rear leg room. There are 15.7 cubic feet of trunk space to store belongings, groceries, or anything else you want to move or take along for the ride.
Standard features for the base Malibu LS trim include 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, automatic headlights, cruise control, an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, smartphone integration, and a stereo system with six speakers. Teen Driver is standard across the Malibu lineup. This feature allows parents to set limits on the level of the audio system and the vehicle’s top speed when younger drivers are behind the wheel. The system can even send a report card detailing how the Malibu was driven. Buckle to Drive is also standard. When deployed, this feature prohibits the transmission from being taken out of park if the driver isn’t buckled in.
All models except the RS have an available keyless entry keypad. This five-digit keypad allows the driver to lock the keys in the car when pursuing an activity like swimming and still have access to the vehicle. The range-topping 2LT trim has an optional automatic parking assist feature that can steer the car into a parking space. The driver operates the accelerator and brakes without using the steering wheel. The 2LT trim also gets standard wireless charging, which allows a smartphone to be charged without a tangle of wires.
