2014 Chevrolet Malibu
2014 Chevrolet Malibu

New For 2014

Along with some cosmetic updates both inside and out, the 2014 Malibu benefits from a more powerful 2.5-liter I-4, a torque increase for the turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4, increased rear legroom, and soft-touch materials within the cabin.

Vehicle Summary

The Malibu name has been on Chevrolet intermediate/mid-size sedans intermittently since 1964, but the badge has been affixed to a front-wheel-drive, mid-size Chevy since 1999. An all-new Malibu went on sale last year, but slow sales and marginal reviews prompted Chevy to whip up an update for the 2014 model year.

Overview

The 2013 Malibu wasn't a horrid car, but dated styling, an uncomfortable rear seat, and ho-hum fuel-economy figures won it few friends -- especially in the cutthroat mid-size-sedan segment. Revisions made for 2014 are relatively minor but designed to address some of the Malibu's most frequent criticisms.

First, there's the exterior styling. Although the Malibu was a handsome enough vehicle, it didn't quite fit in with Chevrolet's most recent design language. Little has changed for 2014, but a new front clip incorporates a larger grille and redesigned lower air intakes. These mild changes make the 2014 Malibu look more like the new 2014 Impala and less like the aging Chevy Cruze. Interior styling is largely unchanged, but there are more soft-touch materials than before. More importantly, rear-seat passengers have 1.25 inches of additional legroom, along with a redesigned bench seat that's reportedly more comfortable. In addition to the previously available rearview camera, the 2014 Malibu is also now available with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic detection -- good thing, as both features are increasingly available in the car's competitors.

Chevrolet has also fiddled with two of the Malibu's three engine choices. The standard engine remains a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, but it's now bundled with variable valve timing and an automatic stop/start system, which shuts down the engine when the vehicle comes to a stop. Those amendments help fuel economy, as the 2014 Malibu earns a provisional fuel-economy rating of 23/35 mpg city/highway -- not far from the 25/36 mpg rating attached to the 2014 Malibu Eco, which pairs a 182-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder with a "mild" hybrid system. Chevrolet continues to offer a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder as an option in the 2014 Malibu; it's still rated at 259 hp, but torque has risen to 295 lb-ft.

We've yet to have a turn behind the wheel, but Chevrolet promises that the 2014 Malibu's ride and handling have improved by way of new twin-tube dampers, and its revised electric power steering now offers more feel. Further, Chevy says it has tweaked the six-speed automatic to deliver smoother, quicker shifts.

These revisions won't reinvent the Malibu, but will they make it more competitive than it was before? That remains to be seen. In terms of power and fuel economy, the 2014 Malibu comes in around mid-pack, but if Chevrolet is able to deliver refinement with attractive pricing, the 2014 Malibu could very well be everything the 2013 Malibu was not.

You'll like:

  • Fresh, bold front-end styling
  • Bump in fuel economy
  • Improved rear-seat legroom

You won't like:

  • Malibu Eco acceleration is sluggish
  • Clunky-looking taillights
  • 2.5-liter still ranks mid-pack in fuel economy

2014 Chevrolet Malibu Rated Top Safety Pick +
The revised 2014 Chevrolet Malibu has received a Top Safety Pick + rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This top rating is not only thanks to the Malibu’s improved performance on the IIHS’ difficult small overlap front crash test, but also due to the car’s available forward collision warning system.

There’s no question General Motors needs the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu to be an outright hit. There’s also no question that the 2013 Malibu wasn’t exactly that. An oddly staggered roll-out, lukewarm reception from critics, and fuel economy figures that trailed competitors didn't do the first new Malibu in six years any favors.

Feature Flick: 2014 Chevrolet Malibu Pitched as Practical Choice for Real People
The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu is one of many midsize sedans vying for a slice of that intensely competitive segment's sales. For the new model year, Chevy's bread-and-butter sedan gets some enhancements to its fuel economy, styling and features to make it more competitive against the segment leaders Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. But at the end of the day, midsize sedans are all about practicality and reliability. That's what Chevy is appealing to in the latest spot for the Malibu.

2014 Chevrolet Malibu Priced at $22,965
The redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu failed to make a splash in the midsize sedan market, both with consumers and the automotive press. In order to better compete in this important, contentious segment, Chevrolet announced an emergency refresh for 2014 which includes a revised front end, a more spacious rear seat, a new center console, suspension tuning upgrades, and start-stop technology standard on all 2014 Malibus equipped with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Now the automaker has revealed how much those upgrades will cost consumers.
