The 2014 Chevy Malibu has achieved a milestone in safety by being awarded the highest possible 5-star Overall Vehicle Score by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) during their New Car Assessment Program.
Chief among the reasons for the Malibu’s NHTSA 5-star safety test success are the numerous active and passive safety features that are both standard and available for the midsize sedan. The Malibu offers an ultra-high-strength steel safety cage, rollover protection, and 10 airbags—including knee airbags for driver and front passenger—standard.
In addition, available active safety features make the Malibu one of the safest and most intelligent vehicles on the road. These features include Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Side Blind Zone Alert, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Every Malibu also comes pre-packaged with six months of OnStar service.
“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, in a press release. “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.”
