2011 Chevrolet Malibu Styling

8.0
On Styling
The design of the Chevrolet Malibu has now gone several years with no major changes (the current car was introduced for 2008), but it's still one of the best-looking cars in its segment.

That said, it's definitely conservative. Handsome and clean-cut is a good way to describe the exterior; the blunt-nose, dual-grille front-end look and clean, smooth look along the side are a refreshing change from some overwrought designs on the market, while its proportions look nice from a distance.

Inside, GM really set a new direction for itself with respect to interior design and appointments, and the two-tone themes and a high-quality look to the materials and trims help this model stand aside in the crowded cohort of mid-size sedans.

The 2011 Chevrolet Malibu isn’t daring, but it’s handsome inside and out.
