Introducing the New Chevrolet Malibu

In the segment of family sedans, the Chevy Malibu leads with its eye-catching exterior design and pleasant driving demeanor. If you prioritize style and practicality, the Chevrolet Malibu at SUNSET AUTO CENTER, INC. should be at the top of your list.

Trim Levels

The Malibu comes in four trim levels:

  • LT
  • Premier
  • RS
  • LS

Each trim comes with unique features to elevate your commuting experience. You can enjoy the MacPherson strut front suspension and 1.5-liter turbocharged engine with the base-level Malibu LS or go all out with the Premier model's chrome exterior accents, bright sill plates, and 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.

Exterior Design

The exterior of the new Chevy Malibu displays elegance. All trims come standard with a front blacked-out grille featuring the iconic bowtie emblem. The front fascia also features LED headlights that offer a high-beam assist function. The rear fascia is attractive due to the dual exhaust, LED taillights, and a rear lip spoiler. Additionally, the wheels range from 16-inch to 19-inch sizes.

Interior Design

Chevrolet designed the Malibu with two rows, resulting in a seating capacity of five people. Each row is adult-friendly due to the excellent legroom and headroom. Cloth upholstery comes as standard. You will get leather upholstery when you opt for the higher trims. Other desirable features you can explore include heating and ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, and power-adjustable front seats. Additionally, you can enjoy 15 cubic feet of space in the trunk, which is great for a mid-size car.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The Malibu mid-size sedan comes with Chevy's infotainment system. At the center of the dashboard, there is an 8-inch touchscreen that can come accompanied by an 8-inch digital gauge cluster. The touchscreen does many functions, such as acting as a feedback center for most tech features.

The infotainment display also features several apps that keep you connected as you travel around Goleta, such as a Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, USB ports, Bluetooth, and Android Auto. A six-speaker stereo system is standard, and a nine-speaker Bose stereo is optional. More tech features in the lineup include wireless device charging, a navigation system, proximity keyless entry, and automatic climate control.

Engine and Performance

The Chevy Malibu offers two transmissions and two engine options to power your adventures around Arroyo Grande. The standard setup is a four-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable transmission to produce 160 horsepower. The optional engine is still a four-cylinder, but it comes turbocharged, making it more powerful for your journeys near Orcutt. It produces 250 horsepower and comes paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Whether you opt for the base or optional engine, you will get excellent gas mileage ratings. You will record an EPA-estimated 36 mpg highway and 29 mpg city with the standard engine. Alternatively, the optional engine records 28 mpg combined, city and highway.

The maneuverability of this compact sedan in tight places is superb due to its accurate and responsive steering wheel that results in poised handling. The suspension soaks up the impacts from uneven roads to deliver a comfortable ride.
