2004 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx

2004 marked the first year of production for the Chevy Malibu Maxx sedan.  It looks a lot like a station wagon and comes in two trims: the LS and LT.  Both trims have a 3.5 L, 200 hp V6 engine with 4 speed automatic transmission.  

Gas mileage comes out to 22 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway.  Both trims have 4 doors and seat 5.  Cargo volume comes out to 22.8 cubic feet with the rear seat up and the LT offers standard leather seats.

Overall, the hatchback design and roomy interior get props from the critics.  On the other hand, cargo space doesn't quite measure up to regular wagons and SUV's.  In the end, the 2004 Malibu Maxx gives you a solid package with a unique twist on your traditional sedan design.
