Chevrolet Malibu 2016 Review

my First Car Was In 1978 Chevy Malibu Classic A Rear Drive V8 Powered Sedan With An 8-track Tape Player And A Headliner Held Up By Pushpins, But In Car Years That Was Five Generations Ago. So, This Week.

I've Got The All-new 2016 Malibu A Midsize Looking To Make Inroads With The Segment Leaders Apparently Size Does Matter When It Comes To Family Cars GM Learned That Lesson The Hard Way With The Previous Malibu We're Cramped Rear Seats Kept Customers Away Obviously That Short Coming Has Been Addressed Here With A Longer Wheelbase That Affords An Extra Inch Plus Of Leg Room While The Big Trunk Remains Virtually Unchanged Other Notable Upgrades Include A Significant Drop In Weight A New 8-speed Automatic Transmission Contributing To A 2 Mpg Bump And Fuel Economy And A Bevy Of New Safety Tech And Top-notch Connectivity By And Large My Week With This Range-topping Malibu Has Not Lived Up To The Hype GM Trumpeted When It Was Revealed At Last Year's New York Auto Show My Initial Impression Of This New Front Grille Has Not Changed Since Then To Me It Sullies An Otherwise Attractive Design Borrowed Heavily From The Larger. Impala And In 2016 No Car That Wears A Premier Badge Should Ever Use Halogen Headlamps Optioned Up To 34,000 285 This Malibu Runs Standard With The High Output 2-liter Turbo For As Does The 2lt Trim Just Below It The Three Lesser Trims The L LS And One LT Are Powered By The New 1.5 Liter Turbo And These Are The Malibu Models To Shop, If 30 Mpg Is Of Importance Those Who Want V6 Level Performance Will Turn Here To This 250 Horsepower Motor Instead Which Is Impressively Refined And Robust With A Quick-acting 258 Pound-feet Of Torque Regular Gas Is Ok, But Premium Is Recommended Rated At 26 Mpg And Combined Driving Which Is Exactly Where I Finished The Malibu's Interior Is Full Of Hits And Misses Per Usual GM The Technology Is Fantastic With Chevy MyLink Full Of All Kinds Of Useful Easy-to-use Features Such As OnStar Apple Carplay And Teen Driver Settings, But The Touch Points Have A Less Than Credible Rental Car Feel The Colors Are Drab And The Rear Seat Bottoms Are Too Short Here's Where The Malibu Shines They're Crushing The Technology Angle The New Teen Driver Feature Is The First In The Industry With A Built-in Component That Lets Parents View On A Display How Their Teenager Drove The Vehicle To The Delight Of Occupants There Are Two USB Ports In The Front And Two More In The Rear Plus A Standard Outlet My Link On Star And Car Play Are A Beautiful Trifecta Of Ultra Helpful Intuitive Connectivity Features And The Driver Information Display Brings Much Of That Intelligence To The Gauge Cluster With Easy Configuration And Who Doesn't Love The 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot Combined With Welcome Touches Such As Remote Start Auto High Beams Adaptive Cruise Control With Automatic Braking And The Full Pantry Of Camera Systems Such As Pedestrian Alert With Automatic Last Second Breaking Forward Collision Alert With Automatic Braking Lane Keep Assists And A Parallel And Perpendicular Parking Assistant The Malibu Will Wow You With It's Up To Date Forward-thinking. IT The 2-liter Turbo Won't Have You Longing For The Old V6 It's Fittingly Strong And Reactive Whenever You Need More Power The 8-speed Is Mostly Smooth Too Though Going From Reverse To Drive Often Causes Some Abruptness And There's Lots Of Buick In This Cars Ride Why And Smooth, But The Handling Is Clumsy Even For The Segment, If At The End Of The Day It's Hard To Imagine Going Malibu Over A Cord And That's The Crux Of The Malibu's Lot In Life It's Improved In Some Key Areas And Goes All In On Safety Tech Yet Lacks The Premium Polish And Hone Drive Ability To Knock Out The Segment's Heavy Hitters Also Offered Is A 46 MPG Full Hybrid The 2016 Malibu Starts At 22,500 For Test Drive Now.com.
