The mid-size front-drive Malibu sedan and its longer hatchback counterpart, the Malibu Maxx, are based on General Motors’ “Epsilon” global architecture, which also provides the basis for the sportier Saab 9-3 and Pontiac G6. Updates for 2007 include standard head curtain and rear side-impact airbags on LS and LT models, an available remote start system for LT sedans (standard on the Maxx wagon) and a new 3.5-liter V-6 option with 217 horsepower (up from 200). Base LS and LT versions continue to be powered by a 145-horsepower, 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine. A new sport-oriented Malibu SS sedan joins the lineup and is powered by a 3.9-liter V-6 with 240 horsepower and a four-speed automatic transmission. SS models also get specific front and rear fascias with blacked-out crosshatch grille pattern, platinum-look grille surrounds, projector beam fog lamps, rear spoiler, dual chrome-tipped 3.5-inch exhaust outlets, and 18-inch wheels. There are three new exterior color choices for ’07 as well: Amber Bronze Metallic, Dark Gray Metallic, Golden Pewter Metallic.

When the Malibu came back in I thought it would never be like the older ones. I had a 2007 Cadillac CTS and I will compare my Malibu for performance and comfort to the Cadillac. I feel safe in this vehicle.
