45. The Chevy Trax and the Equinox are both actually shorter and narrower than the Malibu

I concede that the Trax and Equinox are both taller though - 4 inches and 8 inches respectively. The Equinox is about 300 pounds heavier than the Malibu; though I'm not sure about the Trax - Chevy just says TBD on their website for it.
