Based on General Motors' "Epsilon" global architecture (which is also the platform for the Saab 9-3) theMalibusedan and European-styled Malibu Maxx hatchback continue for 2005 with only minor updates. A redesigned rear spoiler and rear wiper are added to the Malibu Maxx LT, while front-side air bags are now standard on both the LS and LT versions and newly optional on the base model. A new Sport Appearance Package on the sedan includes body-color side moldings and alloy wheels. The sedan comes powered by either a standard 140-horsepower 2.2-liter 4-cylinder engine or an optional 3.5-liter V-6 that delivers a more-pleasing 200 horses; the hatchback is only available with the V-6. A four-speed automatic transmission is standard. The Maxx's wheelbase is six inches longer than the sedan's to add cargo space, which measures in at an impressive 22.8 cubic feet. It also comes with a "Skylight" sunroof and an optional back-seat DVD entertainment system that's located in the center console.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
