Test Drive the 2017 Chevy Malibu in Colorado Springs CO

While each of these vehicles are a great choice as a family hauler, the 2017 Chevy Malibu as a few tricks up its sleeve that sets it apart. Malibu’s exclusive Teen Driver system, smartphone-linked OnStar with remote vehicle access, and a full array of driver-assistive hazard-detection technology keep it ahead of the competition, while more rear-seat leg and shoulder room allow your passengers to stretch out. Both vehicles come available in a hybrid form, but the Kia Optima Hybrid only gets 46 miles per gallon in the city, 3 less than the Malibu Hybrid. Finally, only the Malibu comes available with built-in 4G LTE WiFi which allows riders to connect up to seven devices at once.
