The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu comes with a comprehensive air bag sensing system that will deploy air bags in a collision from any direction. In the event of an impact, a high-strength steel safety cage provides impressive protection.
When the air bags deploy, built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor (if equipped), who is connected to your Malibu to see if you need help and will contact emergency services. Even if you don’t respond, an OnStar Advisor can use GPS technology to pinpoint your location and request that emergency help is sent right away.
Safety features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Read the vehicle Owner’s Manual for more important safety information
