2017 Chevrolet Malibu by General Motors recorded an increase in sales in 2016, making it the only car in its segment to exhibit sales growth. As a result, the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu was able to bring revenue to the company without resorting to giving discounts or selling it to fleet car companies. This allowed GM to recoup its losses on other car models it has built in the past years.

The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu has become a serious competitor this year, with sales in just a matter of 11 months exceeding any year after GM revived the model. It sold more than the Chevy Cruze, which was GM's best-selling car since 2010. Revamping the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu before it reached its life cycle proved that GM wanted to be at the top of the segment, according to Automotive News.

For people looking for a sedan that is spacious and stylish, the 2017 Chevy Malibu is the best choice. Redesigned to offer more comfort and style, the interior of the car is roomier than its predecessor, allowing more leg room and headroom for the driver and passenger. With its sharp look and fun-to-drive features, the result is an enhanced driver experience. On the downside, acceleration is just mediocre and low speed lurches can be experienced from the transmission, according to Edmunds.com.

While the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu costs around $22,000, customers who prefer a high-quality infotainment system may have to pay more. However, it is more user-friendly than what comes with other middle-sized car brands without the need to pay more. Both Android Auto smartphone integration and Apple CarPlay can be used to equip the system, according to US News Best Cars.

The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu may not be the best sedan among all brands but its enhanced version offers features that make customers willingly choose it over other sedans, bringing more revenue than ever to GM.
