The European-spec Chevy Malibu is coming to the Frankfurt Auto Show for its debut at the premier German auto event.
Chevrolet is bringing their new Euro-spec Malibu to Germany's premier auto show next month. This will mark the first time the American automaker will sell their mid-size sedan in Europe. "The Malibu will come on top of the seven new entries launched in Chevrolet's centennial year," said Wayne Brannon, President and Managing Director of Chevy Europe. "The Chevrolet Malibu is the brand's new top-of-the-range offering, bringing proven value with a premium feel to Europe's midsize segment."
The European Malibu will be offered with either 4-cylinder 164hp gasoline or 169hp 2.0-liter or 2.4-liter diesel engines. Both manual and automatic transmissions will be available. The wheelbase is measured at 2,737mm with a track width of 1,577mm for an 'athletic posture.' The Chevrolet Malibu will debut next month at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. The European version doesn't have a launch date yet, however the American version will enter production next January and will arrive in dealerships by mid-2012. The Chevy Malibu will be built in the U.S., South Korea and China.
