2016 chevrolet malibu teased

Apparently, this is the next-gen Chevrolet Malibu.

According to GM, the Malibu will shed 300 lbs and gain a 4-inch longer wheelbase – can you say “Chinese market”? The BMW Gran Coupe-like shape might be a bit too radical for buyers on our shores. Maybe they should call it “Malibu Maxx”.

    Those damn hips that don't actually allow interior room, but make the exterior unnecessarily larger, need to die a fast painful death.

    Hopefully the new platform will also help remedy the B pillar "pinch point" for taller drivers.

    I rented a 2013 Malibu and was surprised how much better it was than my 2009 Malibu. In place of the old ION/Cobalt radio system was a nice modern navigation display. The transmission hunting evident in GM cars from the last decade was gone. I guess this is further proof there are no longer any bad cars, but different degrees of good cars.

      My 14 feels a lot better in the rear space department thanks to the redesigned seats as well as the 2LZ is a hoot on back roads thanks to a competent ride. At least in my highest trim level I prefer the Malibu over the fusion...now only if they offer a manual I'll be sold otherwise, a regal is in my near future!

    If it has four doors, it really should have rear headroom. I personally feel the same way about a two door car with a back seat (BRZ, I am looking at you), but am not going to the mat to argue that.
