TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu

2013 Chevrolet Malibu Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
2012 On paper, the Malibu's rear seat is only a little tighter than those in the 2008-2012 sedan and in competing cars. In person, rear knee room would only be marginally competitive in the compact sedan segment. Sitting behind my 5-9 self, my shins graze the front seatbacks. GM is rushing some revised seats to market. But if past attempts to fix a cramped rear seat are any indication, this won't make a substantial difference. The rear seat in the Ford Fusion is roomier, if also short of the segment's quasi-limos. see full Chevrolet Malibu review

Both front & rear compartments very roomy & comfortable. Again, this is noted improvement over our 2009 Malibu. see full Chevrolet Malibu review

This is tight if front seats are postioned at or close to the back of their range; shorter wheelbase in this model compared to prior version. Rear seat access is excellent (i.e, for infant car seats, small item transport). see full Chevrolet Malibu review

I'm 6'4" tall and 60 years old. I have a tough time getting in and out due to the low roof. see full Chevrolet Malibu review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu

2013 Chevrolet Malibu Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2014 4dr Sedan 196-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Our 2014 Malibu 2.5L 4-cyl has about 30 HP more than our 2009 Malibu 2.5L 4-cyl had. This was due to enhancements such as direct injection & others. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
2013 4dr Sedan 182-horsepower 2.4L I4 Hybrid
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Quite pleased for my low-key, safety and economy-oriented driving style; e-assist feature is almost unnoticeable starting from rest or accelerating, can feel regenerative function associated with deceleration or braking but it is slight. see full Chevrolet Malibu review
