Bluetooth connectivity is also expected to be improved, as is the overall interior design of the vehicle, although Chevy insists that the Malibu will remain spacious and welcoming and will still include the upscale materials that drivers have come to associate with the attractive sedan.
The 2017 Chevy Malibu is also rumored to be getting another trim above the LTZ model for drivers looking for a more luxurious experience. The SS is said to be including more upscale materials and additional technology features, although no details have been released to date.
The bulk of the Malibu will remain unchanged with the efficient 1.5L ECOTEC VVT 4-cylinder engine remaining in place, as well as the 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder that is capable of creating as much as 250 hp.
Drivers will also still be able to take advantage of features like factory remote start, optional safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Automatic Braking, Front Parking Assist, Front Pedestrian Braking, and more.
The 2016 Chevy Malibu offers drivers with a number of attractive features, not only under the hood, but in the cabin as well that make this capable midsized difficult to beat, including:
Hybrid Power – The Malibu offers a 1.8L 2-mode hybrid engine paired to the Voltec drive system that returns a staggering 48 mpg/city fuel economy and up to 45 mpg/highway. This potent system can create up to 182 hp.
Teen Driver – Chevy’s innovative Teen Driver System allows parents to program the Malibu to mute the audio when the driver’s seatbelt isn’t engaged, set predetermined speed limits and deliver audio and visual warnings when those speeds are exceeded, set volume limits, and send alerts when Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning are triggered.
Advanced Technology – The Malibu can be equipped with a wide array of advanced features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Chevrolet MyLink, and OnStar which offers 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity for up to seven devices when activated – providing access to the content you want anywhere the road takes you.
