The 2011 Chevrolet Malibu is unmatched in its safety features and quality of any mid-size car. With the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety awarding the Malibu with a 2010 Top Safety Pick, the Malibu has more to show for it than either the Toyota Camry or Honda Accord. You can be assured that the Malibu has what it takes to keep you and your family safe in an accident. Here are some of the features which make the Malibu a top choice for safety.
Like most Chevrolet vehicles, the 2011 Malibu comes with an available OnStar Automatic Crash Response system for the first six months. In the case of a collision, this system alerts OnStar agents to your location and enables them to contact you if you need assistance, and they can also send help if you are unable to respond.
In addition, the Malibu comes with a unique StabiliTrak system. This system monitors the direction of your vehicle and the degree at which the steering wheel is turned. If the sensors detect the car may be losing traction, it applies brake pressure to the appropriate wheel to correct any divergence. A system like this would be a great asset when driving in bad conditions such as snow, sleet, heavy rain, or sharp turns.
The Malibu also comes standard with a six airbag system for extra protection. This includes standard front driver and passenger airbags, but it also includes thorax and pelvic side-impact airbags, as well as rear head curtain airbags for the rear seat. This way, in the case of an accident, it won’t just be the front seat occupants who are protected.
