Named after the Californian city Malibu, the Chevrolet Malibu embodies the affluence of Malibu. The Chevrolet Malibu was earlier the name of one of the variants of the Chevrolet Chevelle till 1983. Then in 1997, the Malibu was launched as a new car altogether. Presently, the car is in eighth edition. The Malibu is a mid-size 4 door sedan that comes with a powerful 2.4-litre DOHC ECOTEC engine and front wheel drive.

The next thing that attracts is the 7 inch touchscreen control display on the center console that can also be used as an entertainment system. The steering wheel as such is the traditional 3 spoked Chevrolet steering which embeds audio, and hands-free calling features.

The rear lamps are distinct with a shape of two separate boxes and looks appealing. The overall length of Chevrolet Malibu gives it a nice elongated feel which is always a plus point for a luxury sedan. According to the official website, some aspects have also been inspired from the Camaro and it indeed is evident in the simplicity of its looks. Other additions embedded on the exterior are the side indicators mounted on the wing mirrors that has increased visibility and the rear parking assist camera situated on the rear bumper that is also very functional.
