2016 Chevrolet Malibu

CHEVROLET MALIBU: Chevrolet has reimagined the Malibu midsize sedan for 2016 from the asphalt up, with a sleeker design, longer wheelbase, and nearly 300 pounds lighter than its predecessor. An all-new Ecotec 160-horsepower 1.5-liter turbo is the standard engine in the '16 Malibu that employs stop/start technology and active grille shutters to reduce aerodynamic drag to optimize efficiency. A higher-output 2.0L turbocharged engine is available, offering 250 hp for a higher degree of performance. A new eight-speed automatic transmission - the first eight-speed automatic in a GM front-wheel-drive vehicle - is standard with the 2.0T, and the 1.5L turbo engine is matched with a six-speed automatic. An all-new, direct-injection 1.8L four-cylinder engine mated to a two-motor drive unit, slightly modified from the 2016 Chevrolet Volt drive unit, powers the Malibu Hybrid. The drive unit provides additional power to assist the engine during acceleration, for 182 horsepower (136 kW) of total system power. With a wide, athletic stance the Malibu is offered in L, LS, LT, and Premier trim levels, as well as the mentioned above Hybrid model. The 2016 Malibu's styling was influenced by the 2014 Impala, and the new Malibu advances Chevrolet's global design language with slim, sweeping headlamps, and a progressive take on the brand's characteristic dual-port grille and three body-side creases that distinguish the Malibu as a contemporary Chevy. Trunk capacity is up to 15.8 cu. ft. Also, when younger members of the family use the car, Chevy's Teen Driver system scores their performance and shares the information with their parents.
