Chevrolet Malibu

Price $25,195 – $37,848
Fuel consumption 4.8 – 10.5 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 75%(view ratings)
The current-generation Malibu is the ninth offered by Chevrolet. After receiving a cosmetic update and a few extra features for 2019, the midsize sedan is now losing its hybrid option. Don’t be surprised: General Motors made it clear that fully electric vehicles are the future, not hybrids. Malibu customers are left with two turbocharged gasoline engines delivering 160 and 250 horsepower. They are mated to a CVT and a nine-speed automatic transmission, respectively.
