Most people like to be well-connected, but it’s sometimes more challenging than we’d like when traveling around Thornhill, North York, Markham, Richmond Hill, and the Greater Toronto Area going about our business. But if you want or need to stay connected to the outside world when you’re on the go, the 2024 Chevrolet Malibu could be the answer. The 2024 Malibu is a stylish, comfortable, and well-equipped midsize sedan with one of the best standard infotainment systems in its class.
There are two trim levels in the slimmed-down 2024 Chevrolet Malibu lineup that are both excellent value for money. The base model is the LS and the higher-spec model is the 1LT. But if you want your Malibu to be more individual with a darker, sportier character, check out the Midnight Edition, Sport Edition, and Redline Edition upgrade packages that are available for the higher of the two trims. All three packages add 19-inch black-painted aluminum alloy wheels, black front & rear bowtie emblems, a blacked-out grille, and a nameplate badge also painted black. While the Midnight Edition is only available in black, the two other packages are available in the full range of available colours. And in keeping with its name, the Redline Edition adds touches of red to the wheels and nameplate badge.
With the congestion we regularly experience on our roads today, it can be hard to justify big, powerful car engines for models primarily intended for commuting, shopping, and general family duties. While big engines still have their place in appropriate vehicles, a car like the 2024 Chevrolet Malibu requires a balance of performance and economy. And that’s what both versions of the Malibu get for the 2024 model year. Both trim levels come with a standard 1.5-litre turbo-four that develops 160 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque, which is sent exclusively to the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This combination should get you smoothly and comfortably from 0 to 97 kph in around 7.8 seconds. And when it comes to fuel efficiency, the EPA estimated fuel economy is 8.6 L/100 km in the city and 6.8 L/100 km on the highway.
If a good amount of space for passengers and cargo is high on the list of priorities for your new car, you will be satisfied by the 2024 Chevrolet Malibu. You’ll find 1,054 mm (41.50 in) of legroom in the front and 968 mm (38.10 in) for those sitting in the rear seats. The overall passenger volume is a generous 2,914 litres, and your luggage or shopping will feel smooth with the above-average 445-litre trunk.
Both 2024 Malibu trim levels come well-equipped in their standard forms. Both come with standard Automatic Emergency Braking, Following Distance Indicator, Forward Collision Alert, and Front Pedestrian Braking. The standard infotainment system features an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth phone connectivity and audio streaming, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The 1LT top trim gets you a standard 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, an 8-way power driver’s seat, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, and SiriusXM with a 3-month Platinum trial subscription.
The 2024 Chevrolet Malibu is a good reminder of why the midsize sedans segment used to be one of the most competitive areas of the auto business. The Malibu isn’t loud, brash, flashy, or trying to be something it isn’t; it’s a great car that represents excellent value for money and is ideally suited to various roles.
