2016 Chevrolet Malibu vs. 2015 Chevrolet Malibu
Chevrolet has been trying hard to make the Malibu the success it used to be before it was discontinued in 1983. So hard that it redesigned the Malibu only half a year after debuting the eight generation model in 2013. Chevy’s mid-size sedan still couldn’t catch up to what its competition was offering so the automaker continued to beat the pavement in hopes of finding success in the mid-size market.
Chevrolet is betting on the completely redesigned 2016 Malibu to propel the automaker back into contention. The next-gen Malibu is sleeker and more grown up than the outgoing model, which looks like a bubbly-cheeked boy with his mouth open waiting for a dose of sugar. I’m willing to believe a designer accidentally flattened the current Malibu in photoshop and everyone in the room liked it.
The entire exterior of the 2016 Malibu is flatter, sleeker, and more mature-looking. Chevrolet means business by giving the Malibu a coupe-like body that has proved success with other luxury brands. The mid-sized sedan finally exudes confidence that is needed to stand out in its competitive segment.
