I test drove the Fusion, Sonata, and Camry before buying this car. In my opinion, none of them look nearly as good as the Malibu, especially the yawn inducing design of the Camry. Inside, the Malibu has a well designed interior with blue ambient lighting at night which is a nice touch. You will sacrifice about two cubic feet of trunk space with the ECO model due to the battery but it still has around thirteen cubic feet. Lots of storage spaces within easy reach of the driver is a nice touch and the leather seats are comfortable.
As for performance, the Malibu has plenty enough for easily merging into traffic and passing. I'm not sure why some say it's lacking in power, if that's an issue then consider the turbo model. The steering is great and despite some critics, yes, you can easily do a u-turn with this car. May not have the "feedback" some desire but that's due to the electronic steering, it's not a sports car. The start/stop technology works almost seamlessly and GM says this will shave 5% off your annual gas costs.
Overall, the Malibu provides beautiful styling and a very enjoyable ride. I have a crystal red model and it's very nice, easily the best looking car in the parking lot at my work place. I cannot comment on reliability as I have only had the car three weeks, hopefully in the long run there will be few mechanical problems.
