The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, on sale here Mirak Chevrolet. (Boston Area Chevrolet Dealer), is the all-American midsize sedan that’s packed with features and style. The Malibu plays in a competitive field, but it’s a perfect package, with outstanding efficiency, plenty of performance and a roomy interior.
To cover all the bases, the Malibu (MSRP from $22,340) comes six ways:
The Malibu LS carries a standard Ecotec ® 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. With direct injection, this engine is a strong motivator, delivering 196 hp and 191 lb/ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is partnered with the engine, sending power to the front wheels. New fuel-saving engine stop/start technology is also standard, as is a revised suspension that improves ride and handling. While offering excellent passenger room, the Malibu is also efficient, delivering EPA-estimated fuel economy of 25 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. That kind of economy gets a lot of miles out of the standard 15.8 gallon fuel tank in the LS.
The Malibu LS also features 16-inch alloy wheels, a chrome-highlighted front grille, solar-absorbing glass and a six-speaker audio system with Bluetooth ® . The driver gets treated to convenience features, too. The driver’s seat features two-way power height adjustment, and the multifunction steering wheel carries audio and cruise controls. The reassurance and convenience of OnStar ® is standard, and a six-month trial of Directions & Connections services is included.
The Malibu 1LT enhances the driving experience with the addition of Chevrolet MyLink. MyLink puts you in control of your technology. The system pairs with your device and offers Bluetooth ® streaming for audio. A seven-inch color touch-screen is your window into control of vehicle functions and infotainment, and it offers easy integration with apps like Pandora ® and Stitcher ™ , plus USB connectivity and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Using MyLink is as easy as talking to a co-pilot with its enhanced voice control by Nuance ® , and it can even read text messages to you and respond with predetermined messages, helping you keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
Other Malibu 1LT features include heated body-color exterior mirrors with integral turn signal repeaters, projector headlamps, and a larger, 18.5 gallon fuel tank for a highway range that stretches to 650 miles. Inside, the Malibu 1LT features carpeted floor mats, premium cloth upholstery and ambient lighting.
The Malibu 2LT heads upscale. Standard 18-inch alloy wheels and foglamps enhance the exterior, and inside, you’ll find an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. A remote starter system is also standard. While the 196-hp 2.5-liter ECOTEC ® four-cylinder is plenty powerful, there’s a lot more muscle to be had beneath the hood of the Malibu 3LT. Featuring a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection and variable valve timing, the Malibu 3LT hits the road with 259 hp and a whopping 295 lb/ft of torque. 2014 Chevrolet Malibu Near Boston

“My car was hit-and-run while parked, and my insurance company sent me to Mirak for the estimate and repairs. The staff was friendly and helpful, and I got my car back only a day after the original estimated completion date. (Turns out the bumper needed to be replaced. not just fixed.) When I got the car back I found that they had cleaned the interior, which was a nice surprise, though I wish I would have known so I could have requested that they not use the fake cherry air freshener–I have chemical sensitivities and the scent is just now starting to fade about a week later. Overall, though, I’m very happy with the work that was done.”

The popular Chevy Equinox crossover vehicle rolls into 2015 with new connectivity features that help Boston Area drivers maintain their active lifestyles. This will include OnStar with 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotpot. This provides a mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected. The hotspot is on whenever the car is on and comes with a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial.
