Next-gen Chevrolet Malibu headed for 2015 New York Auto Show

General Motors has confirmed that the next-generation Chevrolet Malibu will be unveiled at the 2015 New York Auto Show. The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu has been designed for more efficiency, connectivity and advanced safety features than ever. The car has been built on a completely new architecture and has a four-inch longer wheelbase than the outgoing model, resulting in more legroom and interior space. GM has released a teaser of the car and more details about the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu will be shared each week leading up to the vehicle’s global debut the New York Auto Show this April.

The new Malibu has been built using higher-strength steel structure and is expected to be 136 kgs lighter than the current model, leading to better fuel economy and handling.

“Malibu’s gorgeous styling is the result of a masterful understanding of proportions,” said Ed Welburn, General Motors’ vice president of Global Design. “The roofline has been stretched rearward giving a more sleek profile, while the front wheels have moved forward and front and rear overhangs have been reduced. Along with the sculpted body side, these cues help Malibu appear more dynamic and sophisticated.”
