The 2010 Chevrolet Malibu safety features include high-strength steel safety cage as seen below.
Additional features related to the safety cage include:
- Side-door beams that help reduce penetration into the passenger compartment
during shallow-angle side collisions
- Side-impact, cross-car beams are designed into the vehicle at the instrument
panel, rear compartment and floor areas to help channel energy
- Door hinges and latches that work together with each door’s structure and
steel reinforcements to help keep the doors closed during an impact
