Family car: Chevrolet Malibu
Base price: $19,645 - $27,095
Mileage: 30 mpg Hwy, 22 mpg City

A year ago, the idea of anyone gushing over a car called the Chevrolet Malibu would have seemed absurd. Then General Motors gave us this. Suddenly, here's a Chevy with looks, performance and genuine refinement.

When Kelley Blue Book tested it against six other mid-size sedans, the Malibu stood out in one area in particular: highway driving. The Malibu is smooth, quiet and roomy, and the interior looks smart, too.

Newly available: the combination of a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine with a smooth-shifting six-speed transmission for maximum fuel economy.
