2005 Chevrolet Malibu

The 2005 Chevrolet Malibu was one of Chevy's most popular entries in the midsize sedan class (although the hatchback version, the Malibu Maxx, never quite got the same traction with buyers).  The '05 Malibu was designed to provide family transportation and comfort at an affordable price; competing with cars like the Ford Taurus, Honda Accord, and Toyota Camry, the 2005 Chevy Malibu distinguished itself with a range of options and luxury touches.

Three trims were available for the '05 Chevrolet Malibu: an entry-level Base trim as well as the more upscale LS and LT. The Base model came with a 145-horsepower inline-4 engine; LS and LT models boasted a 200-horsepower V6. And it's that engine power that gives the 2005 Malibu its popularity with drivers. Unlike many family sedans, the Malibu can really open up on the highway.

Another selling point is the popular OnStar option. Once again, this appeals to the family segment in particular; people concerned about safety were eager to invest in the instant-communication road service system.
