The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu comes fully redesigned, bringing it in line with the design heritage of its bigger sibling, the Impala. Looks are more than skin deep, though, and its appearance brings more cabin room with it, as well as a pair of new touchscreen displays, a wireless phone charging station, and a variety of other high-tech features. Topping it off is a new standard engine—a fuel-efficient turbocharged inline four that still serves up plenty of power.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu remains a confident performer on the road while getting a significant boost in fuel economy. The new base engine on the Malibu comes mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and makes a confident 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. While the EPA estimates aren’t yet released, General Motors estimates that it will get 37 mpg highway and 27 mpg city.

2LT and Premier versions of the Malibu come with this larger, 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and pumps out a commanding 259 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. GM’s estimates for this powertrain are strong as well at 32 mpg highway and 22 mpg city. There’s also a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid available, but everything about that exciting new option is covered separately.

Trims and Features

From the base trim all the way to the topmost model, the all-new Chevrolet Malibu comes generously equipped and delivers lots of comfort, convenience, and fun.

  • L: Even the most basic version of the Malibu get Chevrolet’s OnStar telematics system with automatic crash notification, emergency roadside assistance, and turn-by-turn navigation. Other tech includes Bluetooth hands-free calling, keyless start and entry, and steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls. The engine is the 1.5L turbocharged-inline four, and this trim rides on 16-inch steel wheels.
  • 1LS: This trim transforms the 16-inch wheels into aluminum. That’s not all, though. Technology upgrades come in the form of a rearview camera, Chevrolet’s MyLink Radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto for an intuitive and easy-to-use smartphone integration on the display screen. You’ll also get a USB port, a compass, and vanity mirrors in the visors.
  • 1LT: By taking the step up to this mid-level trim, you’ll bump up to 17-inch alloy wheels and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot with your OnStar plan for wireless streaming on up to seven devices. On the outside, this trim gets LED daytime running lights and heated and power-adjustable side view mirrors with turn signal indicators. Inside, you’ll find ambient lighting, a power driver seat, and satellite radio.
  • 2LT: In addition to upgrading to the 2.0L turbocharged inline-four with an eight-speed automatic transmission, this trim also adds dual stainless steel exhaust tips, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and a tire inflator kit.
  • Premier: Rounding out the Malibu lineup is the Premier trim, which comes standard with a Bose stereo system, dual-zone climate controls, and leather-wrapped seats, steering wheel, and shift knob. The steering wheel is also heated, as are the ventilated driver and front passenger seats. Dual-zone climate control also comes standard, and so does a wireless charging station. Luxury is also reflected in the appearance of this trim, which comes with chrome door handles, body-color inserts, LED taillights, and 19-inch aluminum wheels.



Dealers and drivers alike seem excited about the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu redesign, and it looks like major auto critics are of the same mind.

  • The Car Connection: “The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu has sky-high ambitions–and seems on track to reach them, with vastly improved styling and space.”
  • Edmunds: “A handsome new look, a little more room and updated with modern convenience and safety technology, the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu should prove to be a top pick among midsize family sedans.”
  • Kelley Blue Book: “Besides high quality materials, attractive instrumentation, user-friendly controls, and enhanced connectivity (Chevy’s MyLink telematics and 4G LTE WiFi), other significant upgrades include a lower cowl and hood, improving the driver’s forward sightlines.”
