What are the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu Fuel Economy Numbers?

The 2018 Chevrolet Malibu reaches the following EPA estimated fuel economy numbers:

  • Malibu – 1.5L 4-Cylinder – 6-Speed Automatic Transmission – 30 MPG Combined
  • Malibu – 2.0L 4-Cylinder – 9-Speed Automatic Transmission – 26 MPG Combined
  • Malibu Hybrid – 1.8L 4-Cylinder – Continuously Variable Transmission – 46 MPG Combined

Those are stronger base trim fuel economy numbers than the Ford Fusion, and they’re thanks to efficiency systems found throughout the Malibu, as well as its wind-cutting design. Find out more information about the Malibu’s cost saving fuel economy today!

2018 Malibu Fuel Economy Specs

1.5L 4-Cylinder Engine

The base trim of the Malibu reaches 27 mpg city and 36 mpg combined when equipped with a standard 6-speed automatic transmission.

2.0L 4-Cylinder Engine

Consider upgrading to this 250 hp engine that still returns 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway in EPA estimates.

Hybrid 4-Cylinder 1.8L Engine and Electric Motor

Few hybrid sedans reach the efficiency of the Malibu. It offers 49 mpg city and 43 mpg highway with a gas/electric engine.

Efficiency Systems

Variable valve timing, electronically controlled transmissions, and available hybrid technology allows the Malibu to offer some of the best fuel economy in its class.

How Far Can I Drive my Malibu?

If you’re heading out on a long road trip from Aurora, IL, the Malibu is able to reach the following destinations on a single tank of gas:

  • With the 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, you can drive 576 highway miles on a tank of gas, far enough to reach the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.
  • If you choose the upgraded power of the turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder, a full tank delivers 512 highway miles. That’s far enough to go camping in Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri without filling up.
  • The Malibu Hybrid has a smaller 13-gallon fuel tank, but its increased efficiency helps compensate. You’ll get 559 highway miles out of a single tank, more than enough for a family trip to Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH.
