Malibu Overview

Chevrolet has made some really nice cars which have scored well in terms of visual appeal and size, and its flagship sedan in the Philippines, the Malibu, is no different. The Malibu is positioned above the Cruze as the flagship sedan in the country and showcases an impressive design and performance to make sure that it complements its predecessors. In the Philippines, the Malibu is being offered in a single LTZ variant with all the bells and whistles one would expect from a flagship sedan. The colors on offer for the Chevrolet Malibu are Summit White, Abalone White, Black Meet Kettle Metallic, and Gray Metallic

Chevrolet Malibu Interior & Features

On the inside, the Chevrolet Malibu succeeds in impressing one with the way its cabin is laid out. The overall interior exudes premium quality with well-chosen materials and features, with the dual tone black and walnut interior making the space beautiful.

The three-spoke steering wheel as well as large instrument console has simple yet elegant finish to them with chrome accents. The U-shaped center console looks large and wide with vertically aligned AC vents and dominating touchscreen infotainment system, with the latter incorporating all modern smartphone connectivity options as well as BOSE 9-speaker music system. The controls for dual zone automatic climate control look a bit cluttered though.

It is roomy enough for four passengers, with space for the fifth passenger at a premium owing to limited legroom and sloping roofline eating into the headroom. Premium features of the Malibu include - a push-button start with keyless entry, sunroof, front ventilated seats, wireless smartphone charger, handsfree park assist, cruise control, and memory functions for electrically adjustable driver’s seat and outer rear view mirrors.

Malibu Exterior

On the outside, the Chevrolet Malibu hits the perfect middle ground between a muscle car and sophisticated traditional sedan. The overall design is quite muscular, while at the same time, is elegant and has got nice curves at some places.

At the front, the Malibu comes with a sleeker design. It features a stretched design for the Chevrolet’s traditional two-part grille, with bowtie logo in the middle and chrome surrounds. The headlamps have got a sleek design as well, yet they are loud enough to make the car look bigger from the front. The boomerang shaped daytime running LEDs look quite out of place, though.

Coming to the side profile of the Malibu, the car has got two nice curves on the side doors, which along with the sloping coupe-like roofline, makes the car look modern and up-to-date. At the rear, the overall visual drama dilutes a bit, with simple trapezoidal tail lamps and dual exhaust pipes rounding off the look at the back.

Chevrolet Malibu Ride & Handling

Underpinning the Chevrolet Malibu is a suspension setup of Macpherson struts with stabilizer bar at the front and rear independent four-link setup with stabilizer bar at the rear. The suspension has a sort of firmness to the overall ride quality, but this same firmness gives it rock-solid agility in all conditions.

Malibu Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Chevrolet Malibu comes with a sole powertrain option of a 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The turbocharged engine is powerful enough to pump out a maximum power output of 250 PS and a peak torque output of 353 Nm. All the power is channelled to front wheels via the 6-speed automatic gearbox which has got active select manual mode as well.

Chevrolet Malibu Braking & Safety

The list of safety features in the Chevrolet Malibu is good enough to make it fit the bill of a premium flagship sedan. The car comes equipped with front, side and curtain airbags, front and rear parking sensors, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, traction control, hill start assist, electronic stability control, front collision alert, and front pedestrian protection. Further included in the list are forward automatic braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, side blind zone alert, rear cross traffic alert, and tire pressure monitoring system.

Malibu Verdict

Being one of the most underrated sedans in the segment, the Chevrolet Malibu has the ability to impress with the way it looks on the outside and feels on the inside. The performance and ride quality are decent enough to make it engaging yet practical.

    Right from its inception, it has got its dazzle locked in every heart. The new refined bold look of the four wheeler is certain to boost its presence in the Philippines market. Places, where it has landed, have reckoned it to be the most premium sedan produced by Chevrolet. The interior is laden with creative and convenient linings including a Read More

    What an excellent creation! The glaze of the car is unmatchable to any other four-wheeler across the market. The 1.5L turbo engine that is powered by 4 cylinders and direct injection is super efficient in reading driving requirements. The easy-to-use start and stop button makes everything empowered just by the touch of my finger. The car ensures safer drives by Read More

    Datu Aug 27, 2021 for Chevrolet Malibu

    I recently travelled in the Chevrolet Malibu and the experience was extremely good. The car looks like a coupe but is actually a premium sedan. There’s an abundance of space in the cabin and passengers on the rear seat can relax and travel. Even with the sloping roofline, the headroom isn’t compromised. The 455 litres of odd trunk space is Read More

    The Chevrolet Malibu is my whole new possession and I am very excited to share my feedback on my experience. It's been almost a year since I shifted to Manila and during this period of time, all I saw on the highways or roads were huge and gigantic trucks so I wanted something out of the box. After a lot Read More

    The Chevrolet Malibu is one true piece of art, in my knowledge. I’ve been a great fan of the offering, ever since I first found out about the presence of such a sedan in the Philippines market. I wasted no time in buying this eye-candy as I really fell for the looks. Interestingly, the car is an impeccable ride and Read More

    I love sporty sedans and you do not get many options in this segment. Thankfully, you have the Chevrolet Malibu. With 250 bhp, this is one cracker of a sedan! Everything oozes quality in the Malibu and it is a great cabin to be in when driving. The Bose sound system is great and couple that with the great performance Read More

    I masculine and rugged medium sized Sedan. That is what my new possession, Chevrolet Malibu 2018, is. After coming to Manila on last year I was tired to see those truck sized heavy and gigantic cars occupying the majority of roads or highways. So when I planned to buy my car, I decided my car should not be one sheep Read More
