We'll find out early next month.
The current Chevrolet Malibu has been an outright disappointment. Everyone knows it - including GM. The seventh generation Malibu that launched in 2008 was groundbreaking in terms of design and substance. Its 2013 successor? Not so much. It was mainly criticized for its shorter wheelbase, which meant less rear seat legroom. The interior was just an overall disappointment, and an emergency 2014 refresh only helped somewhat. But the 2016 Malibu will have its official debut at New York early next month.
It’ll supposedly fix all of the current car’s shortcomings and then some. Basically, Chevrolet can’t afford to screw up this time, and now it’s released a teaser video showing the new Malibu (camouflaged, of course) undergoing a series of final tests. We’ll discover if Chevy didn’t mess up again on April 1.
