Named after fabulous and breezy Malibu Beach, California, the Chevy Malibu— then the Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu—first appeared in 1964 as a Chevy Chevelle Malibu. From four-dour sedan to Sport Coupe to station wagon, the Chevelle Malibu was a family car. From 1968 to 1973, are the Malibus we remember best—the Chevy Chevelle Malibu SS. She had a Hollywood shape and a sassy engine. After the golden era of SS, Chevelle was no more and Malibu came into its own. Strangely, the Malibu went back to being a family car, albeit one that could be tricked out and suped up for NASCAR racing.
In 2016, the 9th generation of Chevrolet Malibu was brought to market. No longer was that six-banger available but in its place two members of in the small, 4-cylinder, engine category. The first a turbo 1.5 liter Ecotec with direct injection, creating 160 horsepower and getting 37 mpg on the highway. It is mated with a new eight-speed automatic transmission previously in the Chevy Corvette. Not a beast of an engine but it’s respectable and performs. The optional second engine is still a 4-cylinder, but a 2.0 liter, 250 horsepower engine.
Safety Features on the all new 2016 has an impressive array include pedestrian detection, lane cross alert, crash alert, parking assist, blind spot alert and adaptive cruise control, keeping the right amount of distance between you and the car in front of you.
Cabin sweets include 4G LTE data connection and hotspot and a back-up camera standard. The Premier edition gets USB ports, a 110-charger, wireless phone charge—virtually an office on wheels. So— maybe it isn’t the same Malibu we took to drag races on a Saturday night. Now that we are mild-mannered professionals, an office on wheels is cool in a practical way.
