The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu car has been award the Top Safety Pick by IIHS. This award was given after Chevrolet made structural changes to increase car safety during crash test demonstrations.
In addition to a good small overlap rating, the 2014 Malibu also has good ratings for moderate overlap front protection, side protection, roof strength and head restraints and seats. Its optional forward collision warning system earns it a basic rating for front crash prevention.
