This is a classic car that’s been popular for many years for good reason. The hybrid version is truly one of the best out there, and at the price you can get it for, it’s hard to beat. You’ll get up to 49 mpg in the city with the hybrid, and up to 36 on the highway with the 1.5L gas powered engine. All versions come with FWD, and either a 6 or 8-speed automatic transmission.
The base model of the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu keeps it somewhat simple features wise, but will get you up to 36 mpg at an amazing price. The next step up, the LS, gives you better features like a rear vision camera and a touch screen display. More features are added in as you go up in trim obviously, however if you really want a fully loaded car you’ll get those through the available packages. A fully loaded Premier model of this car, with all available feature packages will still only cost under $36,000, which is a great deal.

A sleek look and a sporty ride are not the only features that make the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu awesome. This vehicle is shaped in a very aerodynamic way to help with fuel efficiency, and comes with available daytime LED running lamps, dual exhaust outlets, and LED taillamps. Standard paint colors include shades of blue, white, and black and premium colors are red, gold metallic, and pearl. If you like a breeze, a dual pane power sliding sunroof is available. Wheels are 17, 18, or 19-inch aluminum.
Inside you’ll find features like an 8-inch diagonal touch screen with MyLink Radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto (Premier model). There is plenty of room inside of this mid-size car for children and fully grown adults alike. The comfortable ride combined with spacious seating makes this an awesome family vehicle. Although trunk space is average, there is plenty of room for day to day needs, and the rear seats fold forward in a 60/40 split.
Feature Packages are where you’re going to find all the fancy features that you want. The Driver Confidence Packages will add all of the latest safety and convenience features like Adaptive Cruise Control and parking assistance. The Premier Sub and Wheel Package adds on a sliding sunroof and all-season tires. All trim levels except for the base model have some great package options, which allows you to customize your Malibu to exactly how you want it.
One of the more exciting aspects of the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu is the option of an awesome hybrid. The hybrid version of this mid-size car is pretty much ideal, with its 1.8L engine offering up to 49 mpg in the city. You get the amazing fuel-efficiency that you buy a hybrid for, without losing power. This car is one of the best performing in its class. You won’t even be able to tell you’re driving a hybrid because the braking and acceleration is so powerful and smooth. This vehicle is FWD along with all other versions of the car.
This model also comes with an exclusive Driver Efficiency Gauge, which you can use to specifically monitor how your driving habits affect fuel economy. If you’re looking for a mid-size car with great gas mileage at an awesome price, it will be hard to find one better than the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu hybrid.
If you prefer to stick with a standard gas powered vehicle, than you have two other engines from which to choose. The 1.5L Ecotec engine, available in L, LS, and 1LT models, is a great choice that offers up to 36 mpg on the highway. This engine comes paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. If you’re looking for more power (and luxury) then you might want to go with the Premier trim, which is the only one that comes with the 2.0L turbocharged engine. It also comes with its own 9-speed automatic transmission. This engine will still get you up to 22 mpg in the city and 33 on the highway, which might just be the best combination of power and fuel efficiency.

The base model of the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu comes with some nice basic technology including Bluetooth wireless technology, an AM-FM radio, 6 speakers, steering wheel mounted audio and cruise controls, and a Driver Information Center. However as soon as you move up to the LS trim, you’ll have things like a 7-inch diagonal touch-screen display with a MyLink Radio. You’ll also have Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a USB port, a rear vision camera, and outside temperature displays. So if interior bells and whistles are important to you, you’ll definitely want to spring for at least the LS trim.
Starting with the 1LT model, you’ll also receive a 3 month trial of SiriusXM Satellite Radio and built in 4G LTE mobile Wi-Fi for 3 months. It also includes an 8-way power driver seat with lumbar control, and outside heated power-adjustable body-color mirrors. Starting with this trim level you’ll also have the option to add packages that include things like a Bose 9-speaker premium audio system, heated front seats, a remote vehicle started system, and wireless charging.
The Premier trim level is definitely the most luxurious inside. In this model you’ll get things like leather-appointed seating, a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, an included Bose premium audio system, dual USB ports, an 8-inch diagonal color touch screen with MyLink Navigation, a color Driver Information Center, Dial-Zone automatic climate control, and much more. As mentioned, the Premier gets leather seating while the Hybrid and 1LT get the choice of cloth or leather, and the L and LS get cloth only. Interior seating colors include shades of black, gray, and brown.
The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu gets amazing safety ratings, and with good reason. There are 10 airbags built into a comprehensive air bag sensing system and a high-strength steel safety cage. OnStar is also available, and will automatically alert emergency services in the event of an accident. Your 2017 Chevrolet Malibu comes with 5 years of the OnStar Basic Plan, which does not include emergency services, and a 3 month trial of the OnStar Guidance plan, which does.
This car also comes equipped with Chevy’s Teen Driver technology. This feature is definitely great for encouraging safe driving habits in your teens. You can get a report of how your teen drove, have the car mute audio when seat belts are not on, and many other things. But it is also great for other reasons. For example, you can monitor how a valet used your car when you were away, or anyone else who you let drive your car for that matter.
There are 11 available active safety features in the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu. These include Front/Rear parking Assist, Front Pedestrian Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Automatic Braking, Low Speed Front Automatic Braking, Lane Change Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Rear Vision Camera, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Adaptive Cruise Control is one of our favorite safety features, and is pretty close to letting the vehicle drive itself on the highway.
All of the above available features can be added to any of the trim levels with the Driver Confidence packages. However these cars come with some very nice safety features already built in. Some of these features include a Tire Pressure Monitor System, Daytime Running Lamps, Rear seat reminders, Traction Control, a stability control system, and EMC grade braking control. So even if you don’t want to pay extra for the available safety features, your vehicle will be fully protected.
