2014 Chevrolet Malibu Review & Comparison For Evansville, IN Shoppers

About Malibu Reviews for 2014 from Kenny Kent Chevrolet

2014 brings a roomier and more efficient Chevy Malibu to front and center stage. After the 2013 Chevy Malibu debuted last year to rave reviews with an all-new design, it wasn't quite enough to keep Chevy from going back to the drawing board to make a few more refinements on the latest version. The 2014 Chevy Malibu returns with improved rear seat knee room, start/stop technology for increased fuel savings, and tweaks to its chassis and suspension system. Other new highlights include revised front fascia for a more streamlined appearance, revised engine options, a new cabin center console and available safety features like Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Put plainly, what was already very good just got better; the new 20143 Malibu is a top choice in the mid-size sedan segment.


The 2014 Chevy Malibu in Evansville is available in four trim levels: LS, LT, LTZ and Malibu Eco. Shoppers may choose from two disparate engine options, a turbocharged 2.0-liter model or the new 2.5-liter four-cylinder with start/stop technology. Each comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.


In my Chevy Malibu review, I found the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine to be a lot of fun to drive and quite fast; much faster than I expected, in fact. Had I looked a little closer at the 259 horsepower/295 lb.-ft. of torque rating before I took off, I wouldn't have been quite so surprised. The abundance of low-end torque really made for quick acceleration and firm cornering (in conjunction with the revised chassis/suspension). However, for those looking for a steady family cruiser, the 2.5-liter engine with 196 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque is quite sufficient.


Standard and available features on the 2014 Chevy Malibu include: keyless entry, cruise control, climate control, Chevy MyLink infotainment system, leather seats, heated seats, a Pioneer sound system, rearview camera, navigation, 60/40 split-fold rear seat, fully powered accessories and much more.
