The 2010 Chevrolet Malibu is hard to beat when it comes to safety. It hits all the right notes with features and crash-test scores.

According to Edmunds, “the 2010 Chevrolet Malibu scored a perfect five stars in all frontal and side crash categories in government crash tests.” It also comes with "good" ratings from the IIHS in frontal offset and side tests. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the chance of a rollover accident is 10 percent; the overall range for all passenger cars is between 7 and 18 percent.

Car and Driver points out that the 2010 Chevrolet Malibu is "loaded-up on safety features." Kelley Blue Book backs this up by stating that the Malibu's comprehensive list of standard safety features includes four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and traction control, StabiliTrak stability control, front seat-belt pretensioners, OnStar 8.0, and six airbags (dual-stage front, front seat-mounted thorax (side) and two-row head-curtain bags). MotherProof confirms that all six airbags work properly. During the test, "the safety cage compartment was not intruded upon."

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.
