Five Great Choices with Enjoyable Tech Features

With five Malibu trims available, there's one for every type of driver. Whether you're looking to save money on family-friendly comfort or cruise around town in complete luxury, there's a trim you'll like. Choose between the L, LS, RS, LT, and Premier.

With the base Malibu L, there's a lot to like - especially its thrifty price tag. Inside, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology display smartphone apps on the 8-inch central touchscreen. You can use apps like Maps and Phone without ever actually picking up your phone. OnStar is also part of the standard lineup. Chevy's emergency telematics system sends help when you need it, whether for roadside assistance or after an accident.

Step up to the Malibu LS for extra convenience features. Its sun visors and vanity mirrors will definitely come in handy on a daily basis. Parents will love the Teen Driver system, which sets curfew alerts and geofence boundaries for young drivers. This trim level also comes standard with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, so passengers can stay busy surfing the web on their favorite devices.

Next up is the sporty Malibu RS. It stands apart from the other trims with its stylish extras, including blacked-out exterior trim and black 18-inch alloy wheels. This sedan also includes dual exhaust tips and a leather-wrapped steering wheel for a little extra flair.

The Malibu LT adds to the LS lineup with a long list of creature comforts. Heated front seats offer a cozy winter ride. Use the dual-zone climate controls to set two different temperatures for driver and front passenger to enjoy separate comfort zones. The LT also features illuminated vanity mirrors, making it easy to check your makeup after dark.

Finally, there's the Malibu Premier. This top-of-the-line trim comes with every imaginable comfort feature - including leather upholstery and ventilated front seats. The Premier adds to the heated front seats with outboard rear heated seats, so everyone can enjoy a cozy trip in February. It also comes standard with the upgraded engine for a faster overall performance.
