The mid-sized sedan segment was a far-fetch for the Chevy brand as they tried hard to bring something desirable for some time. All that changes with the new Chevrolet Malibu is one mid-sized sedan that the buyers would desire to own. It is 2 inches long and almost 150kilos than its previous model, you know that Chevrolet has really worked hard on this model in the engineering department. The 9th generation Chevrolet Malibu really looks sporty and luxurious on the outside with the aggressive split grills and the edgy design of the body with the sloping roof line.
Overall, the looks of the car are up to the market standards. The longer wheelbase extends the car to offer more leg room and the head room also is great and the center seat is now practical to enable three people to be at the back for relatively long journeys. The interiors are typical Chevrolet with the center console nicely accentuated with the infotainment system that is both large and functional. Chevy is the one brand that offers smart phone integration facility on all their base models as standard.
The 1.5L turbo charged 4 cylinder engine puts 160hp and 230Nm of torque in this vehicle that is meshed with a 6-speed automatic transmission. There is an 8 speed auto with a more powerful engine option available as well. With that 1.4L engine, it hits 0-100kmph in 8.5 seconds making it a capable machine on the city and the highway despite the engine size and what the specs might say. With great modern design, engine performance and great interiors, the mid-sized Malibu is desirable for newer buyers with features and practicality on offer.
