Reliable Chevrolet's 2014 Malibu Review and Research

The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu improves upon its key features and revitalizes struggling areas noticeable in prior models.

Starting with the frame, the refreshed Malibu takes notes from the 2014 Impala and features a lower grille and a longer hood extended over the upper grille. The updated look gives the exterior a stronger appearance, finishing it off with chrome accents outlining both grilles.

Space, a prior concern with the Malibu, has been adjusted in the new edition. Reviews praise the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu for addressing the issue by changing cushion material to create deeper seats and shaving off an inch from the rear seat, which generated 1.25 inches of additional leg room. Chevrolet also focused on the need for a longer armrest and slimmed down the center console. Redesigned, two cup holders and cell phone storage are now included within the console.

Efficiency and power have been given emphasis in the 2014 Malibu, with Chevrolet integrating the all-new Ecotec 2.5L Intake Valve Lift Control DOHC four-cylinder engine. Complete with direct injection, the 2.5L comes standard in all models and increases efficiency by operating in either low- or high-lift mode. This adjusts the engine's output according to speed and load size. The 2.5L offers 196 horsepower, 186 lb-ft of torque and, for the first time ever, comes standard with start/stop technology. For more torque, Springfield shoppers can upgrade to the 2.0L engine, which produces 259 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.

Chassis moderations seen in the 2014 Impala have carried over to the Malibu, establishing a smoother driving experience. Changes include fuel-saving power steering and rebound springs internal to the struts, enhancing calibration of the dampers, body roll control and weight transfer while accelerating.
