“Improved, top-tier IIHS results, great federal scores, and an excellent list of safety equipment add up to one of the most secure affordable mid-size sedans you could choose.”
The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu breaks from the past in safety, and that's a good thing. It's now a top performer for safety, according to the federal government (all five stars except rollover) and the IIHS (all 'good' ratings, even in small overlap). And to get the best safety in the Malibu—as it earns an IIHS 'Basic' rating for front crash prevention—you'll also want the package adding forward collision alert, lane departure warning, a blind-spot monitor, and cross-traffic alert.
