“The Malibu Hybrid offers outstanding fuel efficiency and integrates the latest technology to give customers a world-class hybrid,” said Steve Majoros, marketing director of Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. “Combined with a number of available, leading safety and connectivity features, it’s a great choice for those who want exceptional efficiency with Chevrolet’s signature value.”
While true that the Malibu Hybrid is the best-in-segment for the 2016 model year, the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid was rated at 50 mpg in the city 45 mpg highway, and achieved a segment-leading 47 mpg highway. It goes on a hiatus for the 2016 model year before some extensive powertrain updates are expected to be announced for the 2017 model year.
Aside from class-leading fuel efficiency the Malibu Hybrid also has an appealing set of standard features including MyLink‘s 7-inch diagonal color touch-screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, 10 protective airbags, a rear-vision camera, cruise control and push-button start with passive entry. Other available safety features include include Lane Keep Assist, Front Pedestrian Braking, Rear Vision Camera and Low Speed Automatic Braking. All of this in a car that starts at $28,645, not bad at all if you ask us.
