New Chevrolet Malibu Design

Car Icon


The Chevrolet Malibu has always stood out as a popular choice for well-rounded mid-size cars. It’s always had a distinctive look, but now it really stands apart from the rest. The 2018 model years affords even more color options, and now with the exciting new premium of the Redline Edition package, critics consider it the best-looking Malibu ever. They love the popular new color: Sandy Ridge Metallic. It’s unique and gives the Malibu a more street-smart, urban look.

The look is now even more distinctive and screams luxury and not just run-of-the-mill sedan. The new premier look is snazzy. It has that ritzy feel that you usually only get with high-end luxury sedans. Its new face includes an elegant black front, and a black and red nameplate badge. It’s a nice-looking car front to back with its unmistakable rear Chevrolet bowties. The all-new black-painted look on its aluminum wheels, grille, and mirror patch give it a feel of modern sophistication. The Malibu’s new look is young, hip and chic; it is not your grandma’s car.

New Chevrolet Malibu Space

Steering Wheel


The 2018 Chevrolet Malibu’s dimensions are 194″ L x 73″ W x 58″ H. That is a larger than the average midsize car. This aids in making the passenger volume greater than average as well, so it’s a great choice for those looking for comfort as well as cargo room. The trunk offers even more space for those extra items that need storing.

The Malibu’s interior is comfortable and quiet, and the front and back are very roomy. There is enough room for two adults in front and three in back. Seating upgrades allow for even more comfort with heated and ventilated front seats. This ensures that everyone riding with you is as comfortable as you are in the driver’s seat. It’s often a complaint when buying sedans, that there is very little leg-room and not enough head-room.

With the extra head-room comes even more comfort and great visibility for you and all of your passengers. With these extremely comfortable seating upgrades, it’s obvious Chevrolet had the needs of the consumer in mind. The power-adjustable seating ensures that the driver is always comfortable and happy. And when it comes to space, nothing beats the extra leg-room with an above-average 38.1 inches of legroom making it very adult friendly.

And last but not least, Chevrolet knows that cargo room is a great concern. That’s why the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu now has a 15.8-cubic-foot trunk, which is deep and spacious. Folding the rear seat allows you to haul extra-large items.
