5. Chevrolet Malibu
Number sold through September: 14,487
Difference from 2012: -13.7%
The effects of the 2013 makeover are starting to fade a bit, but the Malibu is still making inroads in this category.
We mentioned that the automakers were trying to make the midsizes a bit more fun with a few tech playthings, but General Motors (GM) took that to heart by packing the Malibu's base model with an AM-FM stereo with iPod/USB and auxiliary input jacks, Bluetooth with hands-free streaming of audio from compatible devices, OnStar and Sirius XM (SIRI) Satellite Radio. Everything above that base model gets a large touch-screen display using Chevrolet's MyLink information and entertainment system, Pandora (P) Internet Radio playback and Sirus XM Travel Link navigation.
