Overview

Chevy's Malibu is popular for its combination of comfort, quietness, practicality and affordability. This is Chevy's five-passenger family centerpiece. It has to compete with the Ford Taurus, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, the best-selling cars in America, but the Malibu makes a good account of itself among mid-size cars. Chevrolet sold more than 218,500 of them last year.

The Malibu provides a good account of itself on the road, with good power and handling. More power is on tap for 2000 as a new V6 engine comes on all models. The 2000 Malibu is distinguished by freshened appearance.

Model Lineup

The Malibu comes in two trim lines, base and LS. Both come standard with a 3.1-liter V6 engine that replaces last year's 3.1-liter V6 of a different design.

The base model ($16,445) offers a respectable line of standard equipment features: air conditioning, anti-lock brakes, 4-speed automatic transmission, rear-seat child security locks, tilt steering column and tachometer.

LS ($19,215) comes with a nicer cloth interior. It also comes standard with a lot of equipment we take for granted nowadays: power windows/door locks/mirrors, remote keyless entry, electronic speed control, AM/FM/CD/cassette and split, fold-down rear seats.
