The Malibu may not stand out in a crowd, but it delivers excellent handling, plenty of power, lots of headroom and a quiet and comfortable ride. Handling on back roads is superior to that of the Taurus and as good or better than the Camry. Add to that the Malibu's value and it is well worth adding to the mid-size shopping list.
