2024 Chevrolet Malibu

Front View of the New Chevrolet Malibu

The Malibu name has been a part of Chevy’s catalog for decades, and it remains on sale in 2024. Chevrolet has discontinued all other non-performance cars in its lineup, but the Malibu continues carrying the torch as a value-forward, handsomely-designed small sedan. It enters 2024 with a new Lakeshore Blue Metallic Paint color and rear park assist. 

The 2024 Malibu is available in LS, RS, 1LT, and 2LT trims. The 1LT and 2LT are also available with Midnight, Sport, and Redline packages, and LED headlights become standard with the 2LT. If you’re looking for a comfortable car with great standard features and solid predicted reliability, the Malibu should be on your list. 

With a starting MSRP of just $26,195, the Chevrolet Malibu offers a compelling alternative to America’s top compact sedans


Chevy gave the 2024 Malibu a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four-cylinder engine making 163 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to a continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive. That combination provides modest acceleration and power, making the Malibu an excellent commuter with a smooth ride and agreeable driving dynamics. Chevrolet tuned the suspension for comfort, and the car can soak up the very worst road conditions with ease.

The EPA hasn’t detailed fuel economy estimates for the 2024 Malibu yet, but the 2023 model returned solid gas mileage. The turbo-four and CVT combination returns 27 mpg in the city, 35 mpg on the highway, and 30 mpg combined. Those are healthy numbers from a car without a hybrid option, adding to Malibu’s already strong value proposition.


The 2024 Malibu has striking styling elements that give it an imposing stance and eye-catching curb appeal. Its sleek front end houses a large grille with unique shapes, and the sporty RS trim has blacked-out accents that give the car an intimidating look. The sculpted sides add interesting lines and depth to the profile, and 16-inch wheels come standard. Higher trims add larger wheels in sizes up to 19 inches. Chevy also offers a new Lakeshore Blue Metallic paint color for 2024, and LED headlights and taillights become standard with the 2LT trim


The Chevrolet Malibu’s cabin isn’t the fanciest space, but it’s practical, comfortable, and spacious. It offers seating for five people on standard cloth upholstery, and higher trim levels are available with perforated leather. Heated and ventilated seating are also available in higher end configurations. There is plenty of room for passengers in both rows, and adults can ride comfortably in the back. The Malibu offers comfortable ergonomics, and outward visibility is good in all directions. 

Front passengers enjoy 39.1 inches of headroom and 41.5 inches of legroom, while people in the back seat have 37.5 inches of headroom and 38.1 inches of legroom. Those are solid numbers and they make the Malibu a practical companion for families and people who regularly need to transport multiple passengers. The trunk space measures 15.7 cubic feet.


The 2024 Malibu comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, six speakers, and push-button start. Higher trims add navigation, wireless charging, SiriusXM radio, an 8-inch digital gauge cluster, a Bose nine-speaker stereo, and dual-zone automatic climate controls

Chevrolet’s infotainment software offers one of the best interfaces in the business. Menus are clearly labeled and easy to understand, and the system is responsive and quick. The colorful system offers crisp graphics with easily viewable text from both front seats. Its ease of use also makes it less distracting than many others to use while driving. 


Chevy Safety Assist comes standard with all models, bringing forward collision alerts, lane keep assist, automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, and following distance indicators. An HD rearview camera, rear parking sensors, teen driver mode, and buckle-to-drive are also standard.

The 2024 Malibu has yet to be crash-tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rated it five stars overall. There are no open recalls for the 2024 Malibu at this time.
