The 2014 model-year Chevrolet Malibu midsize sedan has received a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety – the highest score possible – as part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program

Safety technologies featured on the Malibu include an ultra-high-strength steel safety cage, rollover protection, and 10 standard airbags including knee airbags for both the driver and front passenger.

In addition to these passive safety features, several other available active safety technologies, such as Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, can assist in avoiding a collision. Side Blind Zone Alert uses sensors to warn drivers of vehicles entering their blind spot on either side. Additionally, the pairing of Rear Cross Traffic Alert, new to Malibu for 2014, and a rear vision camera can make backing out onto busy streets less stressful.

Every Malibu comes with OnStar service standard for the first six months. In the event of a collision, OnStar advisors can contact the vehicle even if occupants cannot respond.

“Safety is an increasingly important consideration for new vehicle buyers, especially for those in the midsize segment,” said Gay Kent, General Motors’ general director of vehicle safety and crashworthiness. 

Last year, Malibu had its best retail sales year since 1999, General Motors said.
