The Malibu offers no fewer than eight submodels, but the one you want is called the 3LT – that's the sleeper. With its cloth interior and low-key 18-inch wheels (in lieu of the LTZ's flashy 19s), neither passengers nor the constabulary will suspect you've ordered the key piece under the hood – a turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder that pumps out 259 horsepower and powers the 3LT to a top speed of 155. With basically no turbo lag and 260 lb-ft of torque, it takes practice not to do burnouts off the line every time. Get one in a modest color like taupe gray and fly under the radar, fast.
