The 2016 Chevy Malibu upgrades brought quite a few new features without compromising on the affordability or versatility of the sedan. To represent the new level of class of the upgrades, they are officially called the Malibu Limited, and you can find it in three trims:
Malibu Limited LS: $22,565
Malibu Limited LT: $23,835
Malibu Limited LTZ: $28,420
The designers at GM have taken the 2016 Chevy Malibu redesign to the next level with a striking new appearance that resembles the larger Impala in many ways. One difference from the outgoing model is the way the headlamps, split grille, and nicely aligned rear sheet metal provide for a new aerodynamic look. The dropped nose and stretched out frame which seems to be around 4 inches longer should make for a confident, imposing presence on the road. Despite its longer frame, the new Malibu managed to shed some weight to lead to improved overall performance.
The cabin of the 2016 Chevy Malibu is copiously equipped with a wide range of creature comforts to keep you happy and entertained on the road. The extended, longer frame of the Malibu makes for even more comfortable seating than the outgoing model, making the 2016 Chevy Malibu more than capable of seating five adults. Traditional luxury features and tech amenities will be available to set the car apart from its competitors.

Performance and Efficiency
Standard power on the 2016 Chevy Malibu comes from a spunky 1.5L four-cylinder engine which makes 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. This new powertrain should also save lots of money at the gas station due to its advanced direct injection technology, the Malibu’s lighter frame, and start-stop technology that turns off the engine automatically while idling. All of this combines to make an EPA-estimated 34 mpg highway. The turbocharged engine has returned as well with 259 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque while remaining efficient at 32 highway mpg.
Advanced Safety Technologies
All versions of the 2016 Chevy Malibu arrive with 10 standard airbags and features like traction and stability control. What makes the 2016 Chevy Malibu stand out, though, are a number of advanced safety features, including:
Teen Driver Technology – This exclusive feature puts parents in control of their teen’s driving habits. This PIN-based technology allows you to go in and set limits, including where the car can be driven and how loud the stereo can go. This system will also be able to send alerts to your phone when the vehicle is being driven too fast.
Advanced Sensor Systems – Utilizing state-of-the-art sensors on the exterior of the vehicle, systems like lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert, and forward collision alert will let drivers know when there’s a threat of an accident with an audio alert. While these systems were already available in some form on the previous Malibu, they could receive some updates and be available on more trim levels and packages.
