Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Chevrolet Malibu ranked #11 in Midsize Cars. Currently the Chevrolet Malibu has a score of 6.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 24 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Low base price for the class
Great fuel economy

Cons
Cheap-feeling cabin materials
Dull handling
Less passenger and trunk space than rivals

By:

Almost nothing! The Malibu received a minor visual update for 2019, so the 2020 Malibu carries over to this year with only a few new colors (Stone Gray and Black Cherry) and new wheels for the RS and Premier trims. Three paint colors available in 2019 are no more, so if you had a strong attachment to or lust for Iridescent Pearl, Pacific Blue, or Sandy Ridge, 2020 just isn't your year.

Pros
Handsome (yes, really!) design, lots of tech, great ride and handling for its class.

Cons
Poor rear visibility, cheaper models lack features, can't disable auto stop/start.

PROS

Easy-to-use touchscreen interface

CONS
Lackluster acceleration from the base 1.5-liter engine
Limited outward visibility

CONS
Not as quiet as some other rival sedans
Low seating position slightly hampers entry and exit

By:

Frugal powertrain options
Good standard active safety features
Generous rear seat room

Cons
Top trims have just a little too much chrome
