The 2011 Chevrolet Malibu seats five and offers three trim levels: LS, LT and LTZ. The LS and LT features 17-inch wheels, while the LTZ boasts 18-inch wheels. A glass sunroof is optional across the board and the V-6 model has dual chrome exhausts. Steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, Bluetooth connectivity, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, remote engine start, heated front seats, a six-way power driver seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are also available.
The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu seats five and comes standard with cloth upholstery and a power-height-adjustable driver’s seat. Options include leather upholstery and eight-way power-adjustable heated front seats. Reviewers say the Malibu’s front seats are pretty comfortable, and that the available eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat makes it easy to find a comfortable driving position. Critics think that the back seats, which were given deeper cushions and enlarged for 2014, offer more knee- and headroom. However, they say that the Malibu still suffers from an uncomfortable lack of rear legroom compared with its competitors.
