The 2010 Chevrolet Malibu, available at Minneapolis Chevy dealership Suburban Chevrolet, remains a popular American car. The Malibu has been part of Chevy’s line up since 1964 and continues to be a great-selling car in the mid-size segment.
“It now boasts a level of refinement and overall competence that puts it head and shoulders above its past generations and on par with other top midsize family sedans. Traits such as a comfortable and quiet ride, a roomy cabin, satisfying performance, handsome styling and value pricing make Chevrolet’s latest Malibu a strong choice,” says Edmunds.com of the 2010 model.
The 2010 Malibu is part of the vehicle’s seventh generation and is a four-door sedan available in four trim levels: LS, 1LT, 2LT and LTZ.
The Chevrolet Malibu features a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. The 2LT and LTZ are available in a 3.6-liter V6 as well. A four-speed automatic transmission is standard on the LS, while a six-speed automatic transmission is standard on all others. Fuel economy for the LS is 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, and 22 mpg city and 33 for all other six-speed, four-cylinder trims.
The LS comes with standard power equipment, including automatic headlights, keyless entry and power driver seat height and lumbar adjustment. Other features include 17-inch steel wheels, a tilt-telescoping steering column, OnStar and a six-speaker stereo with CD player, satellite radio and an auxiliary audio jack.
The 1LT includes color-keyed side mirrors and moldings, a six-speed transmission and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls. The 2LT adds 17-inch chrome-clad alloy wheels, Bluetooth, an auto-dimming rear view mirror, heated front seats, a six-way power driver seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The LTZ features 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors with driver-side auto-dimming, LED taillights, automatic climate control, eight-way driver and six-way passenger power seats, leather upholstery, upgraded gauges and an eight-speaker stereo including two subwoofers and a USB audio jack.
The 2010 Malibu, available now at MN Chevy dealer Suburban Chevrolet, keeps safety in mind. All safety features are standard to ensure the safety of all drivers and passengers. Standard safety equipment includes anti-lock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags and side curtain airbags. The brakes of the six-cylinder Malibu 2LT are commendable, as they stop the car from 60 mph in only 122 feet, which is a short distance for a mid-size car.
