Corry, PA August 31st, 2016– The Chevrolet Malibu is an enduring classic that helped launch the midsize sedan segment more than 50 years ago. It drives into the future with an all-new 2016 model engineered to offer Tri-County Chevy Owners-drivers more efficiency, connectivity and advanced safety features than ever – all with a brand-new, progressive design.
“The all-new Malibu offers a sophisticated and functional design that will appeal to returning and new customers alike,” said Shane Crotty, Sales and Leasing Consultant of Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “Now longer, lighter and leaner, it carries on Chevrolet’s signature style cues.”
The new Malibu’s wheelbase stretches 3.6 inches (91 mm) longer than its predecessor and it is 2.3 inches (58 mm) longer, with the same overall width – dimensions that contribute to a sleeker-looking proportion. The longer wheelbase also helps provide better in-cabin comfort and functionality.
The hood and the cowl – the area where the windshield meets the hood – are lower and contribute to the Malibu’s greater aerodynamic performance, as do active grille shutters on LS and LT models.
Premium design cues, with contemporary lighting technology, are incorporated on all models, including light-emitting diode (LED) daytime running lamps on LT and Premier models. The Malibu Premier also receives LED taillamps.
Beneath the new Malibu’s athletic-looking skin is a stronger, lighter body structure that contributes to its efficiency and driving dynamics. Greater use of high-strength steels enabled engineers to design the body structure with thinner components in some areas, delivering comparable crash performance with lower weight. In fact, the body structure accounts for more than one-third of the Malibu’s nearly 300-pound weight reduction.
The longer wheelbase allows a more open execution of Chevrolet’s signature dual-cockpit interior. Rear legroom improves by 1.3 inches (33 mm).
The cabin’s open, expansive feel is reinforced with a greater emphasis on comfort, convenience and connectivity, allowing the Malibu to keep pace with Crotty Chevrolet Buick customers’ connected lives.
The instrument panel “center stack” is all-new, with greater delineation between the infotainment system and climate system controls for easier, at-a-glance operation.
- Galvano (satin) chrome accents on the instrument panel and center console
- A storage slot for mobile phones incorporates wireless charging, if equipped
- Perforated leather-appointed seating surfaces available on LT and Hybrid; and standard on Premier
- Ventilated seats – a first for Malibu – are standard on Premier.
