See How Critics Reviewed the All-New 2016 Chevrolet Malibu

By Sunrise Chevrolet | January 12th, 2016

For decades, the Chevy Malibu has been a top competitor in the family sedan segment. With the release of the fully redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Malibu, General Motors is seeking to plant itself firmly in the reins of the midsize sedan class for many years to come. See what some of the top auto critics in the business have to say about this all-new model in terms of design, features, and performance, and then make your way to check it out in person at Sunrise Chevy in Glendale Heights, IL.

Kelley Blue Book

“Its sleek looks might be the best in its class, resembling the larger Chevy Impala in all the right ways. But there’s more than that pretty face. The new Chevy Malibu boasts a comfortable and modern interior with a big back seat and high-tech features.”

When it comes to sophistication, it’s tough to beat the 2016 Chevy Malibu. Even the most basic version of this car comes with the OnStar system and a swathe of telematics features including a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Also featured is the Chevy MyLink infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Topping it off are available features like dual-zone automatic climate control, premium leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel.

The Car Connection

“The 2016 Malibu feels far roomier than its predecessor, despite modest dimensional gains over last year’s model—and it comes down to some smart decisions that help maximize the feeling of interior space. The dash has been lowered and pushed out at the corners; new seats offer better support all around; and there’s much more rear legroom than before.”

The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu isn’t just more sophisticated than the model it replaces. It’s bigger, too. The new Malibu features a longer wheelbase than the outgoing model, which means more room for passengers overall, but especially more legroom for rear seat passengers. Enjoy a cabin that measures a capacious 118.7 cubic feet, and a cargo area that measures 15.8 cubic feet.

Automobile Magazine

“We’ve just driven the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu, and it is simply excellent, the strongest contender GM has had in this segment in many, many years.”

The new 2016 Chevy Malibu has the power and fuel economy you demand in a midsize sedan. The base engine is a 1.5L turbocharged inline-four that makes 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque while saving money at the gas tank with an EPA-estimated 37 mpg highway and 27 mpg city. 2LT and 2LTZ trims get a larger 2.0L turbocharged inline-four, which manages a robust 250 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque while still getting 33 mpg highway and 22 mpg city.
