2016 Chevrolet Malibu,is coming soon.
With a precise shoulder line, clear 19-inch wheels, as well as Impala like front design, 2015 Chevrolet Silverado is a super handsome four-door. As secondary sedan, however, the model is less than the amount of convincing.
Chevrolet has tried, to correct this in 2014 ,by pouring a little much ,larger area in the rear seat knee, upgraded Sheetmetal and also typical engine, stop-start technology, but in our ,latest comparison test Huge, automotive positioned 6 of 6 cars. This estimate is covered Malibu with a 2.5-liter I-4, so when Crammed 2016 Malibu Turbo, appeared in Motor Trend Garage, follow-tested car to see exactly, how good his performance ,matches up to the competition.
2016 Chevrolet Malibu Review
Bang the Malibu Turbo’s throttle to the floor, and you’ll either be very, entertained or slightly nauseated, or both. Turbocharged four-cylinder ,four-doors can be great deals ,of enjoyable when you’re not interested, in the much more direct feel ,of a six-cylinder midsize sedan. In the Malibu Turbo, a little turbo lag is complied, with by a sudden burst of acceleration. At wide-open throttle from a stop, on the ideal surface, you can even burn a little rubber. The Malibu’s turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 benefits 259 hp at 5300 revoltions per minute and 295 ,lb-ft from 3000-4000 revoltions per minute, and also it’s mated ,to a six-speed automatic ,with hand-operated controls ,on the equipment stalk. Those basic stats sound somewhat, remarkable on paper, however let’s go to the test track. Chevrolet Malibu ,Turbo Front 3 Quarter 02.
2016 Chevrolet Malibu Desing
Spied! Next-Generation Chevrolet Malibu.
While the six-speed automated, commonly searches for the highest gear, to raise fuel economic climate (like others in this class), the somewhat awkward manual controls, on the leading of ,the gear stalk are much appreciated. As opposed to a hands-on gate, or steering wheel-mounted paddles, in the Malibu Super, the vehicle driver knocks ,the gear stalk into M then, chooses the wanted gear. Around among our favorite driving,roadways in Southern California, we stuck with 2nd equipment ,by means of that manual method, which actually got up the automobile and, to the transmission’s credit history, really did not immediately, upshift at higher revoltions, per minutes. The Malibu Super’s interior is the automobile’s significant, competitive disadvantage. It’s not our driving test automobile’s, eye-catching brown piping against, tan natural leather seats, neither the special-looking, two-tone control panel. Despite how attractive, or effective the Malibu enters turbocharged kind, the 2015 Chevrolet is still ,lacking when it concerns rear-seat room, and also convenience of entry/exit. (The car manufacturer included 1.25 inches of rear-seat knee space for 2014.) Unlike in the Malibu, you won’t discover a large ,drivetrain hump in a Toyota Camry, and also the Honda Accord has ,plenty more rear-seat legroom. Were we shopping for a midsize sedan, these critical information, would certainly keep ,the Malibu off our listing.
2016 Chevrolet Malibu Interior
2016 Chevrolet Malibu , Side Profile If the Malibu’s comparative, insufficiency in interior, area isn’t of concern, you could ,such as the car’s 2 cellular phone stands, or the cool storage ,space area concealed behind ,the fold-up center-stack touchscreen. While we still can not, figure out the layout function ,of the straight strakes simply,over the glove box, heaven ambient lights ,is a wonderful touch.
On a future Malibu, we would certainly enjoy to view larger sideview mirrors that fold in (manual or power-operated) and also more reasonable faux wood trim. Eventually, both factors we desire from the Malibu, aren’t visiting be meaningfully addressed this version year or the following. No matter the engine, the vehicle might make,use of much more interior ,space and much easier ,rear-seat entry/exit– until that takes place, the Malibu Super would require, class-leading efficiency or some severe incentives t,o drive it to the best of the pack.
2016 Chevrolet Malibu Specifications
From 0-60 miles per hour, the 2015 Malibu Turbo ,is a mid-pack performer. It’s quicker compared to a couple ,turbo-four-powered midsizers, yet behind a pair of six-cylinder four-doors. The Chevrolet’s 6.3-second time was, as you ‘d expect, quicker compared to an all-wheel-drive 2013, Ford Combination ,with a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 (6.8 secs). Our long-term 2013 Kia Optima SX-L made even more power but less torque compared to the Malibu Super, from its turbocharged four-cylinder, and also kipped down a 0-60 miles per hour time of 7.2 seconds. The V-6 midsize sedans ,still lead the lesson in this benchmark sprint, with a 2012 Toyota Camry SE V-6 clocking in at 5.8 seconds and also a 2013 Nissan Altima V-6 at 5.9 secs. In 45-65 miles per hour death, the turbocharged four-cylinder cars, accept the typical V-6 cars, with the Malibu’s 3.5-second time ,defeating the Optima (3.9 seconds) and also ,all-wheel-drive Combination,(3.7 seconds), yet not the Camry (2.8 secs) ,and also Altima (2.6 secs).
