Five Things You Should Know About the 2016 Chevy Malibu
At Turner Chevrolet, we couldn't be more excited for the arrival of the all-new 2016 Chevy Malibu. This classic ride has been fully redesigned, and its new look and feel is making waves. Add to this the Malibu's revolutionary tech and safety features, and you have a car that's bound to impress. There's a lot to love about the 2016 Malibu, but we've compiled our top five favorite things that we think everyone should know about the updated Malibu.
1. It's been fully redesigned—in all the right ways
The Chevy Malibu's look got a complete reboot for the 2016 model year, and we love the way this sedan has been modernized. With sculpted lines, body-side creases, a long hood and clipped overhangs, the new Malibu proves that it can hang with even the most stylish of sedans. In keeping with its sleek new look, the 2016 Malibu has been made more compact in some subtle ways, so that it weighs almost a full 300 lbs. less than the Malibu generation before it. Despite its trim new body, however, the Malibu is anything but tight on the inside; the interior is more spacious than ever with the 2016 redesign. Thanks to a lower hood and a stretched wheelbase, passengers in the backseat will have more legroom and a more comfortable ride.
2. It's all about turbo now
Thanks to a turbocharged 1.5-liter from GM’s new Ecotec small-engine family, the 2016 Chevy Malibu revs things up a notch. The engine comes with direct fuel injection and a turbo running a maximum 17 psi of boost, coupled with its six-speed automatic transmission. Add to this the fact that the new Malibu is 300 lbs lighter than the old, and you'll be surprised by the power that this ride can pack. Whether you use it for long road trips, cruising on your commute or everything in-between, you'll enjoy all the get-up-and-go that you crave in a car.
3. It comes with all the technology options for a modern driver
The 2016 Chevy Malibu is truly a car made for modern times, and with that comes all of the technology capabilities you want in a well-connected age. The easy-to-customize Chevrolet MyLink dash display, the 2017 Chevy Malibu supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, seamlessly integrating your communication and entertainment options with the way that you travel. On top of this, the 2016 Chevy Malibu is the first car in its class to offer 4G LTE wireless connectivity, meaning that staying connected while on-the-go will be virtually effortless.
4. It's more efficient than ever
Today, efficiency matters, and the 2016 Chevy Malibu was redesigned with that idea in mind. Chevy knows that drivers want to spend less time, and less money, standing at the gas pump, and so they've delivered on a car that can go further and fill up for less. With a GM-estimated 37-mpg on the highway, the Chevy Malibu is stiff competition for other cars in its class when it comes to efficiency, and it certainly outstrips the fuel economy of previous Malibu generations. In our book, efficiency is always a win.
5. It has some amazing features for safety
If you have a teen or a soon-to-be teen who might be looking to borrow that car from time to time, then the Chevy Malibu is your best bet for the ultimate in safety features. This car introduces a new "Teen Driver" setting, which includes functions like radio controls, a stereo that mutes if front-seat occupants aren't buckled in, audible warnings when the car travels over a pre-determined speed, a viewable post-trip "report card" and so much more. These features can be turned on or off, so you can turn them on for your teen and off for yourself if you like. No matter who is driving though, the features this car offers for safety are truly groundbreaking.
