2011 Chevrolet Malibu Safety

8.0
On Safety
Safety is yet another reason the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu fits families well. The list of standard features include all that's expected: anti-lock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, and side curtain airbags. The OnStar emergency telematics is also standard and has for 2011 been upgraded to version 9.0. .

The 2011 Malibu retains top 'good' ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in every category, including frontal offset, side, and seat-based rear impact tests, along with the new roof strength (rollover) test. The federal government's tests have been redesigned this year, with a stricter ratings system, too, but the Malibu rates quite well, with four stars overall and a great five-star score in side impact.
