2016 Chevrolet Malibu Buyer's Guide
Chevy is once again looking to take a leadership role in the mid-size sedan segment, this time with the completely redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Malibu that will premiere with powerful-yet-efficient turbocharged engines, cutting-edge connectivity technologies, a streamlined and sophisticated exterior, and a comfortable, upscale cabin. Naturally, as a top contender for family-oriented customers, the new ’Bu also showcases many of the industry’s most popular driver-assistance measures, along with a new Teen Driver system that can be set to eliminate potential distractions for younger drivers.
Two fresh Malibu models also debut for 2016: a new range-topping Malibu Premier that will introduce new levels of luxury to the nameplate, as well as a re-energized Malibu Hybrid that is expected to return at least 45 mpg in combined driving.

What makes it move?
The powertrain troika for the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu begins with a standard turbocharged, four-cylinder engine that displaces just 1.5 liters but is still expected to make 160 hp and return EPA ratings of 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway. For higher performance, there's a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine, projected to produce 250 hp and offering a new, GM-designed eight-speed automatic transmission. Rounding out the trio is a high-efficiency hybrid option, leveraging a 1.8-liter gas engine (with exhaust gas heat recovery) and a two-motor drive unit adapted from the 2016 Chevy Volt.
Why buy the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu?
The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu will likely leap to the head of its class in terms of technologies, with 4G LTE connectivity, mobile wi-fi functionality and not only all the expected high-tech safety systems—e.g., side blind-zone alert, adaptive cruise control and a new lane-keeping setup—but also a front pedestrian alert that relies on camera-based technology to help eliminate/mitigate potential pedestrian harm from a frontal impact.
It’s further worth noting that Chevy designers made a significant effort to offer more premium cues in the Malibu’s dual-cockpit cabin, which is bigger than before, with an extra 1.3 inches of rear-seat legroom, and will boast available amenities like perforated-leather seating surfaces, ventilated front seats (previously offered with heating), an eye-catching “Galvano” chrome accents and wireless phone charging.
