While the four-cylinder Malibu is quite fuel-efficient and green—especially considering its interior space—the V-6 model isn’t as much of a standout.

Expert Quotes:

22 mpg city, 33 highway (four-cylinder); 17/26 (V-6)
U.S. EPA





The 2011 Chevrolet Malibu comes in four-cylinder and V-6 variants, and while the V-6 Malibu, at 17 mpg city, 26 highway, isn't particularly green, the four-cylinder model is quite good at 22/33—thanks, in part to the six-speed automatic, which has a tall top gear and is now standard across the line.

Those who want to dodge foreign fossil fuels might be interested to learn that the four-cylinder Malibu is one of many that's E85 compatible; however as such it's only rated at 15/23.

Conclusion

While the four-cylinder Malibu is quite fuel-efficient and green—especially considering its interior space—the V-6 model isn’t as much of a standout.

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.
