Great vehicle does most things well.
The 2016 Chevy Malibu Hybrid, after studying hundreds of vehicles, I found to be the best overall, although not the best in any one category. But all together, the car does critically important features well, which makes the car excellent overall.
Critical features for an Uber or Lyft car
- Great Fuel Economy
- Roomy back seat
- Air vents in the back seat
- Blind spot detectors
- Pedestrian detection with automatic braking
- Trunk space for luggage
The 2016 Chevy Malibu has 5 out of 6 of these features available. Great fuel economy if you select the hybrid model. Roomy back seat and air vents in the back seat. Blind spot detector and pedestrian detection with automatic braking if you select the Driver Confidence package which also includes forward-collision warning, automatic high beams, front and rear parking sensors, lane-departure prevention, and rear cross-traffic alert.
The 2016 Chevy Malibu hybrid is lacking in trunk space because the hybrid battery takes trunk space, and the rear seats do not fold down.
