Meet The New 2023 Chevy Malibu

Are you looking for the best midsize sedan of 2023? Let me introduce you to the all-new Chevy Malibu, a model dedicated to innovation in all forms: performance, technology, and style. This vehicle sets itself apart from the competition with premium features unlike those you would in any other popular sedan model. 

A Midsize Sedan That is Actually Fun To Drive

It’s time to abandon the notion that your everyday car can’t double as a  “fun car”, and the 2023 Malibu is here to support that. All trim levels come with a 1.5-liter Turbo 4-cylinder engine, Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), MacPherson strut front suspension, and 4-link rear suspension. These performance features were purposefully selected to propel the car quickly with smooth acceleration and to give you, the driver, an abundance of confidence to stay on the road. In addition, the Malibu features variable-effort electric power steering. Not only does this offer a better driving experience, but it’s lighter on your gas mileage and therefore your wallet. Sporting an impressive 27/35 MPG City/Highway, the Malibu rivals other popular midsize sedans for fuel efficiency. With the Chevy Malibu, you don’t have to give up the sport you desire in a car to gain the practicality and safety of a sedan.

Safety Features in the New Chevy Malibu

Chevrolet takes pride in being innovative and inclusive in safety technology. This means that no matter what level of luxury you chose for your Malibu you are equipped with top-of-the-line safety and driver assistance features. The standard safety feature on all Malibu models is Chevy Safety Assist. This package includes seven innovative safety features that will make you feel secure for any journey. If it’s not your journey, but the start of somebody else’s driving journey, lean on Chevy Safety Assist’s teen driver technology – designed to help keep new drivers safe and aware. Chevy Safety Assist also includes a following distance indicator, lane keep assist, and lane departure warning to help with both bustling city and steady highway traffic. You can rest assured knowing you’re equipped with forward collision alert, front pedestrian, and auto emergency braking for the most critical and unanticipated moments. When the road gets dark, Intellibeam High Beam Assist will make flickering high beams a thing of the past by automatically switching high beams between on and off. The new Malibu is performance proven and still stable in its family-focused roots with safety features to impress everyone. 

Tech to Impress

Chevy knows the value of staying connected while in your car, which is why it’s packed with functional and fun tech amenities. The Malibu comes standard with the Chevy Infotainment Center, which is both Wireless Apple and Android Carplay compatible. One feature that is becoming increasingly popular in newer vehicles, especially those made for people on the go, is the available WiFi Hotspot. This means no more stress about finding a signal on remote roads, so rest assured you have a backup plan.

Staying connected to others is invaluable, but what about tech to stay connected to your car? All 2023 Malibu models are compatible with the innovative myChevrolet mobile app. With myChevrolet, you’ll have access to remote vehicle features as well as the ability to check the status of your vehicle or run certain diagnostic tests. It’s clear that this vehicle was designed with technology with the perfect balance of ingenuity and simplicity. There’s more than enough technology in the Malibu to please the modern driver.

The Best Looking Midsize Sedan

The Malibu offers a varied appeal than its standard competition in its class. With both an interior and exterior that elevate the Malibu to a new level of sport and luxury, it’s no wonder this car is a stand-out amongst other midsize sedans. 

Available Trim Levels

The Malibu offers 7 combinations of trim levels, with Midnight, Red Line, and Sport Edition offering specialized features to add a unique sense of style for individual interests. The trim levels from the most basic to the decked-out version are RS, LS, 1LT, and 2LT. All four trim levels offer the same general exterior and interior style, so no matter which trim level you choose you’re bound to turn heads on the road or in the parking lot.

Exterior Details of the Malibu

The Malibu offers more flare and style compared to its competition, with seven incredible exterior paint colors including the popular Radiant Red and Mosaic Black Metallic. Painted to impress and with several wheel and rim options, you’ll be confident that you drive a car that stands out. But this sedan has more style to offer than just its exterior. 

Interior Details of the Malibu

The Malibu’s spacious interior comfortably seats four, and upwards of five.  The interior is available with perforated leather and other high-end features like heated seats. As an added bonus to their style, the seats are comfortable, too. The comfort and the style of this sharp interior help the Malibu stand out as going above and beyond its midsize sedan competition.
