The Chevrolet Malibu Limited has been a consistent performer in the midsize sedan market segment for more than a decade. A roomy, affordable car, the Malibu Limited is a good buy for Dayton Ohio-area consumers with families and a desire for fuel efficiency.
The Chevrolet Malibu Limited is an excellent value for people looking for specific features and benefits in a midsize sedan. Its big enough to seat five passengers comfortably, delivers a nice smooth ride, gets good mileage, and boasts an engine powerful enough whether you’re commuting to work or headed off on vacation.
In other words, the Chevrolet Malibu Limited is a terrific family car. Good size without a hefty sticker price (base is just under $25,000), good acceleration without blowing the doors off, and comfy enough to keep everyone happy on those hours-long highway junkets.
Buying an economical family-oriented sedan doesn’t mean you have to give up on getting a pleasing exterior. Chevrolet’s Malibu Limited has a sporty, aerodynamic design, and pleasing colors (including an arresting shade of burgundy) that encourage some head turning. The Limited impressed reviewers at Car and Driver enough that they recommended it over the RS and Premier trims.
If you subscribe to the theory that more standard features mean better value, then the Chevrolet Malibu Limited is a good investment that offers more than the base RS and compares well with the top-line Premier. You’ll get racy 17-inch wheels, an adjustable driver’s seat, remote ignition, LED taillights, heated front seats, and more.
It’s nice to know you’re buying a vehicle that strikes a nice balance between power and efficiency. The Limited Chevrolet Malibu gives you a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates more than 160 horsepower, with a continuously variable front-wheel-drive transmission. If you’re looking for a vehicle that’ll get you from zero to 60 in four seconds, the Chevrolet Malibu Limited isn’t for you. But you can expect smooth transitions as it accelerates and an overall pleasant ride.
You can also expect mileage that compares favorably to other midsize sedans. The Limited trim comes in at 32 combined city/highway miles, a very respectable figure and reassuring considering the price of gas these days. All in all, it’s a nice combination of size, comfort, and fuel efficiency, especially if you’re planning some long-distance summertime driving.
Speaking of lengthy trips, the Chevrolet Malibu Limited provides plenty of trunk space and an interior big enough to fit carry-ons and plenty of small items. The back row is spacious enough that adults won’t feel cramped or claustrophobic sitting for lengthy periods. Connectivity includes a mobile WiFi hotspot and a touchscreen infotainment system with access to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
