Chevrolet Malibu is one of the popular sedans in United Stats and throughout the years it has become a sure seller for this car manufacturer. The company has recently unveiled the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu, a new car, not just an update of the previous model. Furthermore, to keep up with other car manufacturers, they have unveiled two different versions – Malibu and Malibu Hybrid. It is really a new car, both on the outside and the inside and judging by the positive reaction of the public it will sell pretty well.
2016 Chevrolet Malibu exterior design
The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu has a new design, which looks really good and it appears that they have taken a new direction, at least when it comes to design. The front of the car has very interesting design (some experts said that it looks like the Honda Accord) with headlights that have projector lights, smaller grille with chrome accents (the interesting thing is that the Chevrolet logo is not on the grille, but right above it) and the two daylights, in a shape that resembles a boomerang.
The back of the car is fairly simple (a little bit like some of the new Audi models) and it looks really classy and elegant. The twin exhausts are a nice detail, revealing the sporty side of this car. The whole car looks really nice and not too aggressive, but still enough to make it stand out of the crowd.
Details about the interior
The official images of the new Malibu show a dual tone interior, with the interesting design of the dashboard. The dashboard looks really unique and it is a combination of modern and traditional – in front of the driver are located analog dials, while in the center of the dashboard is located a large touch screen display, used for control of the infotainment system and for displaying energy data in the Malibu Hybrid.
It is packed with safety features – the manufacturer stated that they wanted to promote safe driving. Some features are known from before – lane keep assist, forward collision alert and rear cross traffic alert, while, some are new – like “Teen driver technology” – software that should encourage safe driving by displaying warnings or muting audio when occupants aren’t wearing their safety belts.New Malibu is the first mid-size car that will have 4G LTE Wi-Fi built in.
