We have a certain confession to make. Like the most of you, dear readers, know, we are truly and very devoted fans of highly gorgeous and utterly fashionably designed cars. Besides the BMW, Ferrari and Audi models, we show, let’s say, a certain weakness to the Chevrolet Malibu.
2016 Chevrolet Malibu Review
By our, most humble opinion, this stunning car has the ability to stand in a line with these awfully expensive, highly fashionably and impeccably designed cars.
And here is why-the Chevrolet‘s designers have adopted a very clear and quite simple strategy, when being updated their models -and that strategy consists of getting the very best parts of their already-been-famous cars.
This recipe has, over the years, proved to be excellent, so naturally the GM designers opted to stick to it.
Interior and Exterior of Chevrolet Malibu 2016
The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu is planned to present the boldest and quite imaginative combination between the full-size Chevy Impala (thanks to it, the Malibu has its well-known muscular overall appearance) and some smaller midsize sedan (the Malibu’s bold front end, the split grille, sweeping rear flanks is based on this midsize sedan).
Newly made Malibu is, in fact, about 2 inches longer and a wheelbase is approximate 4 inches longer than its currently been available model. And, also, this brand new variant will be about 300 pounds lighter, which will have a direct impact on some significant amounts of fuel savings.
Besides all of that, it will be equipped with somehow improved safety features and a teen-driver governor, which will make the Malibu just perfectly constructed real family-oriented sedan.
The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu is planned to be available in four level trims, ranging from the base to the most exquisite one: L, LS, LT and Premier.
Regardless of the exact opted trim level, the all four will be equipped with: 10 airbags, a standard rearview camera and an optional package of the most useful safety features (such as: lane keeping assist, parking sensors, front pedestrian warning, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic alerts and an adaptive cruise control).
Other pretty notable, mainly high-technology features, include the following the most striking ones: 7- or 8-inch touchscreen displays (that feature depends on the exact opted trim level), 4G LTE connectivity that comes along in pairs with a Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless phone charging pad and dual USB ports especially adjusted for rear seat passengers.
Chevrolet Malibu 2016 Engine
Under the hood of the newly made Malibu is going to be placed some kind of a standard turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine option, which power has been estimated at 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, and will come along matched with a six-speed automatic transmission.
In case that you are the fan of the more potent motor options, you are going to be blown away with the strength of a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder.
Its power has been estimated on a 259 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, and will be available paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
For all the green-oriented fans, a hybrid powerplant option will also be available- and that is going to be a bold bled between a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and a two-motor electric drive.
2016 Chevrolet Malibu Price
We’re assuming that the price won’t be higher than a $23,290, if the folks from Chevy want to stay competitive.
