Though it's the base trim of the lineup, the 2010 Chevrolet Malibu LS five-passenger sedan offers more than its share of standard goodies, as well as a few popular options. Beginning with cloth front bucket seats and split-folding rear seats, the LS also features a standard two-way power driver’s seat, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, center console, power windows, door locks, and mirrors, remote keyless entry, cruise control, air conditioning, Onstar telecommunications with hands-free phone, and an MP3-compatible single-CD player with six speakers and satellite radio. Options for the LS include Bluetooth technology and front and rear floor mats. Safety-wise, the 2010 Malibu LS carries standard four-wheel disc ABS, traction and stability control, dual front side-mounted airbags, front and rear head airbags, daytime running lights, a remote anti-theft alarm, and the Onstar post-collision safety system.

Powering the front-wheel-drive 2010 Malibu LS is the same 2.4-liter variable-valve-timed (VVT), inline four-cylinder (I4) engine that equips the entire lineup. The I4, in combination with the standard four-speed automatic transmission, puts out 169 hp and 158 lb-ft of torque to the tune of 22/30 mpg.

Jumping up a notch from the LS, the 2010 Chevrolet Malibu LT midsize sedan offers all the same goodies as the LS trim, with the addition of front and rear carpeted floor mats, wheel-mounted audio controls, and a fold-flat passenger seat. Additional options with the LT include a power sunroof, remote start, and a rear 110-volt outlet. Safety features for the LT mirror those of the LS trim.

The 2010 Malibu LT features the same standard 169-hp, 158-lb-ft/torque 2.4-liter VVT inline four-cylinder (I4) engine as its LS sibling, but corrals these ponies with a standard six-speed auto-manual transmission. The EPA rates this combo at 22/33 mpg.

Adding a number of extra standard features to the mix, the 2010 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ is the best the lineup has to offer. Amenities obviously include all of the goodies standard with the other three trims, plus an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a four-way power-adjustable passenger’s seat, two-tone leather upholstery, automatic dual-zone climate control, and premium front and rear carpeted floor mats. Optional equipment for the LTZ is identical to that for the LT2 trim level.

As with its three siblings, the 2010 Malibu LTZ carries a standard 2.4-liter variable-valve-timed (VVT) inline four-cylinder (I4) engine and six-speed auto-manual transmission. This combo puts out 169 hp and 158 lb-ft of torque at an EPA-rated 22/33 mpg. Also available with the LTZ trim is a 252-hp 3.6-liter V6 that, when mated with its standard six-speed auto-manual, gets 17/26 while pounding out 251 lb-ft of torque.
