New Chevy Malibu Will Be Lighter, More Refined Than Previous Generations
Chevrolet recently teased a photo of the new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu and announced that its full reveal will take place at the 2015 New York International Auto Show this April. There are limited details until the 9th-Generation Malibu is actually revealed at the NYIAS, but we do know a few things…
One of the major changes on the 2016 Malibu will be a weight-shed of about 300 pounds, making the total weight of the new model about 3,000-3,300 pounds. The wheel-base will also be 4 inches longer, allowing for more legroom in the back seats. As you can see from the photo, the profile of the new Malibu offers a more sleek design, and we’re excited to see the full reveal next month. It has already been announced, also, that the new generation will be available at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet in Wilmington, NC in the last quarter of 2015, which is pretty great.
What do you think about the Malibu being redesigned? Do you think it needed an update, or did you think it looks fine just the way it is now? Weigh in by leaving a comment below!
