All-American Sedan: The 2016 Chevy Malibu
At Reliable Auto Sales, people often ask us what’s the best car for everyday use such as getting to work, picking up groceries, getting the kids to school, and so on. We recommend the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu as a fantastic car which is perfectly suited for everyday use.
Exterior and Design
The 2016 Malibu offers longer, leaner body stylings than 2015’s taller more showy design. The 2016 is more subtle and also lighter overall in terms of vehicle weight. For 2016, the base Malibu weighs 3,100 pounds – which is a full 300 pounds less than last year’s base model. While more subtle in overall design, the front is still bold with dual grills and well-set headlights and venting creating a stylish look. In summation, the Malibu is a balanced car whose design elements fit very well together.
Interior and Features
On the inside, the new Malibu is restrained yet elegant, keeping with simple and usable design concepts. Metal and wood grain trim catches the eye inside the car. For 2016, the Malibu greatly improved its interior features, which include a 7-inch MyLink display for controlling external devices, phones, making use of apps, and controlling the car’s audio system. Other options include voice control, leather seating, heated seats, USB ports, OnStar, LED taillights and more.
Under the Hood
The Malibu comes standard with a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that offers 160 horsepower and an estimated 27 MPG in the city and 37 MPG on highways. A 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder option is also available and offers 250 horsepower and gets an estimated 22 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on highways. A hybrid choice is also available with a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that returns an estimated MPG of 45 MPG for the city and 48 MPG on highways.
