If you have new drivers in the household, you’ll love the standard Teen Driver safety feature. Parents can place limits on features or request an in-vehicle report card with just a click.

The Malibu LT introduces even more luxury to your daily drive. Take advantage of options like heated front seats, remote start, or the Bose 9-speaker sound system to make the cabin your own. Plus, the LT can be equipped with state-of-the-art safety features like Lane Keep Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.


The Premier trim level offers a superb blend of refinement and power. The 2.0L turbocharger 4-cylinder engine boosts your horsepower to 250, along with 260 lb-ft of torque.
