2016 Chevrolet Malibu Buyer's Guide

The Chevrolet Malibu is a five-passenger midsize sedan that’s been completely revised for the 2016 model year. The Malibu nameplate is an important one for Chevy, as it’s represented the brand’s premium sedan models for decades. The competitive price, strong styling, and new standard features are likely to make this new generation of Malibu another strong seller for Chevrolet. The styling, in particular, is much sharper and more athletic than the outgoing 2015 Malibu design, with a front end that appears to be inspired by Chevy’s sports cars. Thus, the Malibu retains its practicality, but sheds its boring image. The 2016 Malibu features strong yet efficient engines, competitive standard features such as push-button start and a six-speaker stereo, and plenty of options.
