Benefits of Driving a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan

The all-new Malibu competes with mid-size 4-door sedans like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Fusion and Hyundai Sonata; but with its 2013 redesign, the Malibu is being reconfigured more toward busy, always-connected parents and those who place a priority on fuel efficiency.

What's new for 2013?

The Chevrolet Malibu has been completely redesigned for 2013, featuring an all-new styling inside and out, more economical new powertrains, improved ride and handling, more safety equipment and the new Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with integrated Pandora and Stitcher audio streaming.

Model Strengths

  • Fuel-efficient powertrains
  • high-mileage Malibu ECO model
  • fresh, contemporary styling
  • MyLink connectivity
  • improved ride and handling

Model Review

The standard powertrain for most of the Malibu lineup in 2012 will be a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. The new engine has direct injection and overhead cams, with four valves per cylinder and makes 190 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque on regular-grade gas.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
