The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu is here, and critics everywhere are impressed with the next-generation model. Following their Malibu test drives, several reviewers have commented on improvements made to the car that make it far superior to the previous model, which was less than popular with critics due to its smaller size. The 2016 Malibu, however, is lengthier and larger, restoring the nameplate to its former glory and earning accolades from critics everywhere.
While being longer than the last generation, the 2016 incarnation is now much lighter, as well, after shedding about 300 lbs, which critics attribute to the redesigned front fascia that grants the family sedan a more sporty, aggressive look. The interior removed the previous model year’s wraparound design in favor of a more spacious look. In terms of performance, the 2016 Chevy Malibu boasts better handling and a more rigid suspension, in addition to a new 1.5-liter turbo engine.
The Malibu test drives prove that the 2016 model year’s design has improved over the old model’s in a way that still appeals to the traditional needs of practicality and dependability that buyers want from the mid-size family sedan segment. In addition, the new Chevy Malibu adds a touch of style and fun to the car at the same affordable price characteristic of other midsize sedans.
