2014 Chevrolet Malibu

New technologies help the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu deliver greater efficiency and connectivity, two of the most important considerations for customers of midsize sedans.

Seat Ibiza

1. Seat Ibiza

The Seat Ibiza is a great super mini that’s well-equipped, sporty to drive and reliable with a good range of economical engines. Although it’s practically the same car as the premium Volkswagen Polo, we recommend the Seat over VW’s offering because it’s cheaper and arguably better styled.
