2014 Chevy Malibu: 5-Star Safety

This new honor for the 2014 Malibu is a reflection of the extensive engineering and meticulous planning put into the model. The vehicle features 10 standard airbags, which includes knee airbags for both driver and front passenger.

In addition to these airbags, several other active safety features are constantly working to avoid collisions altogether. Forward collision alert and lane departure warnings help notify the driver of a potential collision and hazardous situations.

Used on both sides, side blind zone alerts use sensors to warn drivers of vehicles entering their side blind spots. Teamed with Rear Cross Traffic alerts, these systems help keep Malibu drivers fully alert of their surroundings at all times.

Every Malibu also comes with OnStar service for the first six months, a great feature for complete peace-of-mind.

“The customer is at the center of our day-to-day operations and when we design vehicles, it’s their safety that we have in mind.”
