TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu

2017 Chevrolet Malibu Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearComment
2016 Chevrolet's designers styled the new Malibu's instrument panel to appear low and out of the way, such that the front seat feels especially roomy and the view forward seems more open than in most competitors, including the Kia (the instrument panel in which seems significantly higher and more imposing). In the tested car, which had every option except the panoramic sunroof, headroom was so abundant I could have worn a fedora. The Kia Optima might have as much front headroom when similarly without a sunroof. The official specs, which often don't reflect real world differences, suggest it should have even more than the Malibu. But you cannot get a highly equipped Optima without the sunroof, as it's part of a large package on the SX and standard on the SX Limited. Though the Malibu's windshield is relatively large, you won't find outward visibility among the reasons to buy one. The Chevrolet's front pillars remain on the thick side, its instrument panel is considerably deeper than the Kia's, and the view to the sides and rear also could be more open. In the Optima, the view to the sides is more open but that to the rear is not. I did find the Cherolet's front seats more form-fitting and comfortable than the Optima's. The Kia's quilted seats aren't as cushy as they appear. see full Chevrolet Malibu review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu

2017 Chevrolet Malibu Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2016 0 I'm very pleased with powertrain. I have the 1.5lt and six speed auto. It has plenty of power for my modest needs. The fuel economy has been good so far. 5.3l highway and 7.4 city. My previous car was a Buick Lucerne, so this a big improvement. I was nervous getting such a small motor. But I have zero concerns now. It has stop/start tech, which I enjoy. It is generally quite smooth and unobtrusive. I have noticed some roughness when restarting on a slight incline. My wife dislikes this feature a lot. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
