Overall, this model has a perfect combination of everything you need for a safe, comfortable drive in an amazingly stylish car.

Why should I wait for the 2018?

Only if you’re primed for what’s likely to be a fairly mild update, but one almost certain to be accompanied by higher prices. We might see expanded availability of select features, a few fresh paint treatments, perhaps addition of a new appearance or equipment package to spur sales. On the upside, you’re ’18 Malibu will look fresher than a ’17 and its appearance and content will probably see it through until its next full redesign, slated for model-year 2021.

2018 Chevrolet Malibu New Release

Should I buy a 2017 model instead?

If having the absolutely newest look is a low priority. You’ll sidestep the anticipated annual price boost, and get what’s a solid family-sedan value. The ’17 lineup consists of the base L, volume LS, and upscale LT models with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The posh Premier model has a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a nine-speed gearbox. There’s also a fuel-frugal Hybrid model that pairs a four-cylinder gasoline engine with a two-motor electric drive unit (it’s otherwise equipped similarly to the LT).
