The 2021 Chevrolet Malibu is a solid contender in the crowded mid-size sedan class.
It stands out for its attractive styling, refined demeanor, and efficient hybrid powertrain, but we wish that its high-tech safety equipment didn’t require ponying up quite so much cash for a loaded model. Overall, we’ve assigned it a 7.3 out of 10.
Only mild changes apply to the 2021 Malibu. A Redline appearance package is offered, as is a new paint color. A bigger gas tank appears in all models: Malibu L, LS, and LT.
