This year's 2016 Chevrolet Malibu is a standout and its stylish lines make it an eye catcher wherever it goes. Chevy hasn't let us Malibu lovers down with this one. It can stand up to any challenger in its class and still come out on top simply because of its super design and well outfitted presence. The Malibu is physically up for any challenge too. The mid-size sedan with the turbocharged four-cylinder 1.5-liter engine produces 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque with its six-speed automatic transmission. That's just the base engine. The available 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine pushes out 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque with an eight-speed automatic transmission, for a thrilling and totally capable ride you can enjoy every day. This year's model has thinned down quite a bit, losing over three hundred pounds from its gross vehicle weight rating in the re-design process. That makes it one of the lightest cars in its class. This year's Malibu is also roomier than previous models. The designers have maximized the interior space for your driving comfort and there is plenty of legroom and also more than ample storage room in the spacious trunk. The new Malibu is ready and waiting for drivers from Port St. Lucie, Palm City, White City, and Jupiter, FL at Wallace Chevrolet in Stuart.
PerformanceThe 2016 Malibu has a grown up feel to it. Not the kind of old fogey feel but a more mature feeling that inspires you to be confident in yourself and in your vehicle. It's a mature feeling that grows on you especially when you find out that all the engines in the Malibu are direct-injected and are turbocharged. That kind of mature engineering can always inspire confidence. The Malibu performs just as one would imagine it to. It shines on city streets and moves easily through all the obstacles when it's dashing down the highway. Steering in the Malibu is one of the noticeable pleasures of driving the 2016 Malibu. The electric steering lets you feel where you are going and it gives you a more precise and tactile experience than previously. It lets you truly feel that you are one with the car. Since the Malibu's weight loss, over 300 pounds, the base weight is now under 3,100 pounds, which makes it lighter than most of its so-called competition. The suspension hums with delight as this perfectly weighted creature sails through traffic on its voyage to the market or across the country. Malibu's performance outshines its former incarnations and all others in its class.
Exterior & Interior FeaturesRich looking is the phrase most people think of when eyeing the 2016 Malibu for the first time. It truly is something to behold. The rich interior is comfortable to say the least and the overall appearance of the exterior knocks you out with its elegance. The interior is quite comfortable and extremely roomy. Plenty of legroom in the front and the back and the dashboard is a bit lower making it agreeably reachable for the driver. The navigation and infotainment touchscreen is big enough to accommodate safety and easy control when on the move. Is style so important? Yes, it is, as long as it doesn't interfere with function. And that is the perfect way to define the 2016 Malibu's interior and exterior: a well-blended combination of style and function. Of course, without one or the other the car would not be a Malibu, it would just be a metal box on four wheels that no one would want to drive or own and no one would be proud of it. The 2016 Malibu, however, is something to be proud of, indeed. The comfort and elegance, mixed with the highest engineering and design standards have produced a wonderful automobile that is world-class in its beauty, excellence and drivability. The Malibu has certainly changed since it was brought out in the 1960s. Back then, however, it was still considered to be a one of a kind, very stylish and even 'cool' car. It was a desirable ride just like now. The exterior lines were breathtaking to that time and similar things can be said of today's Malibu. The Malibu back in the 60s was a trophy car that incidentally, was pretty fast and people were not only proud to drive one, they were proud to even ride in one that wasn't their own. Same with today's Malibu. Maybe things haven't changed that much after all.
