When you’re looking for a new car, there are many ways to choose, ranging from sheer power output to how stylish it looks driving down the highway, but one excellent criteria for choosing a new vehicle is what sort of awards it has won. For a vehicle that has raked in the honors (and promises to continue to do so) may we recommend the Chevy Malibu.
But what awards has the Chevy Malibu won? The Malibu has taken awards in categories like safety, value, and overall excellence.
Chevy Malibu Best Car for the Money
Way back in 2011, the 2011 Chevy Malibu was honored as the Best Car for the Money by the U.S. News & World Report. That same dedication to including top features at a reasonable price has carried through all the way to the new 2016 Malibu coming soon to Craig Dunn.

The Malibu Eco has also received an overall Five-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA and was a 2013 Top Safety Pick from the IIHS.
The excellent midsize Chevy Malibu sedan
The Chevy Malibu has also taken several overall awards for its quality as a midsize car. The 2014 Chevy Malibu has received a Segment Award in its class from the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study that year, and the 2015 Chevy Malibu repeated the feat in 2015. Just this year the 2012 Chevy Malibu also won the Segment Midsize Car Award for the J.D. Power Dependability Study.
As you can see from these awards, if you are looking for a midsize family sedan, then the new or even pre-owned Chevy Malibu is an excellent choice for any discerning car shopper.
