The 2012 Chevrolet Malibu LS starts with a 6-speed automatic transmission paired to a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine. Front bucket seats are covered in cloth, and the driver gets power height adjustment as well as lumbar.

The steering wheel is a tilt and telescoping unit for further comfort control and comes with standard radio controls as well. Air conditioning and one year of OnStar are standard, as well as cruise control and a satellite-ready CD and MP3 player with digital media connection. Headlights are automatic and join traction control, antiskid, 6 standard airbags, 4-wheel antilock disc brakes and daytime running lights to finish off the safety features, while the whole package rolls on 16-inch alloys.

The 2012 Chevrolet Malibu LT gets you floormats, heated power mirrors, a USB input and a digital media connection as well as voice recognition. Otherwise it stands virtually indistinguishable from the LS, with the same powertrain setup of a 2.4-liter engine coupled with a 6-speed automatic rolling on 16-inch alloys. Traction control and antiskid are included as well. There are power windows, doors, mirrors and remote-keyless entry. Front bucket seats are cloth, and the driver enjoys lumbar and power height adjustment. Cruise control and automatic headlights are also standard, and further safety features include daytime running lights, 4-wheel antilock disc brakes and 6 airbags.

In the 2012 Chevrolet Malibu LT2, the driver enjoys 8-way power for his bucket seat, but no leather except wrapped around the steering wheel. You’ll also get Bluetooth added to the satellite-ready CD and MP3 player, which has secondary controls on the tilt and telescoping steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate controls. Remote engine start is added at the LT2 level to join the remote-keyless entry and power windows, mirrors and door locks. There’s an automatic rear-view and illuminated visor mirrors, but for a real touch of style, look to the 18-inch alloys that hide the 4-wheel antilock disc brakes. Cruise control and automatic headlights make things more convenient for the driver, and antiskid and traction control regulate power from the 2.4-liter engine mated to a 6-speed automatic. Safety is handled by 6 airbags, daytime running lights, fog lights and a theft-deterrent system.

The 2012 Chevrolet Malibu LT3 gets the driver 8-way power for his bucket seat and leather wrapped around the steering wheel. Bluetooth is added to the satellite-ready CD and MP3 player, which has secondary controls on the tilt and telescoping steering wheel. Dual-zone automatic climate controls and remote engine start are added to join the remote-keyless entry and power windows, mirrors and door locks. There’s an automatic rear-view and illuminated visor mirrors, 18-inch alloys and 4-wheel antilock disc brakes. Cruise control and automatic headlights make things more convenient for the driver, and antiskid and traction control regulate power from the 3.6-liter engine mated to a 6-speed automatic. Safety is handled by 6 airbags, daytime running lights, fog lights and a theft-deterrent system.

In the 2012 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ, leather dominates the cabin, covering the tilt and telescoping steering wheel as well as the front power heated bucket seats. The mirrors get heat and power as well, and the LTZ trim also adds a manual rear sunshade. But there’s power to be had with the doors and windows as well as remote start and entry. You get dual-zone automatic climate controls and 17-inch alloy rims. Fog lights join the daytime running and automatic headlights, and just to make sure you’re really not in the dark, there are illuminated visor shades and an automatic rear-view. The LTZ comes with the 2.4-liter engine mated to a 6-speed automatic. You’ll get cruise and traction control, antiskid and 4-wheel antilock brakes. A theft-deterrent system is also included as well as 6 airbags.
