All New 2013 Chevrolet Malibu



Do you like the idea of having a gas friendly car but are looking for something with a wider stance? How about something that looks sporty on the road but fits the functionality of being a working professional or a busy parent? You may be in for a treat with the all new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu! Influenced by the Camaro and Corvette, you get the feel of a sports car with the comfort of a midsize sedan. Chevy calls this aggressive styling and class leading.

 On average, the amount of time spent in a car is around 274 hours per year. Your vehicle has to be comfortable and practical. Chevrolet has been doing particularly nice work with interiors and theMalibucontinues that trend. Of course there’s always plenty of personal opinion when it comes to interiors, but thisMalibuis up near the top. The center console is topped with a larger screen you can flip up to find a useful bits and pieces bin. Downward are the sound system controls with their logical twist knobs for volume and tuning.

Chevrolet will offer the Malibuwith its MyLink, Chevy’s big step into in-vehicle wireless connectivity and technology. MyLink perfectly integrates online services such as Pandora ® internet radio and Stitcher SmartRadio ®­ using hands-free voice and touch-screen controls via Bluetooth-enabled phones. “Car buyers considering the all-new 2013 Chevy Malibu don’t have to settle for mass market radio,” said Jon Hahn,Malibu marketing manager. “They want the option to create their own individual stations and have access to them wherever they are.”

­­­­Chevy fans were celebrating Chevrolet’s 100th anniversary on Pandora with a dedicated Chevrolet station playing the Top 100 songs mentioning the brand. You can visit www.Pandora.com/chevy100. MyLink adds stereo audio streaming and wireless control of smart phones, building on the voice-activated Bluetooth hands-free calling capability already offered in most Chevy vehicles. The Malibu Eco comes with MyLink standard, along with a seven-inch, high-resolution, full-color touch screen display that makes media selection easy to navigate.

What makes it go? Malibu Eco is powered by General Motors’ eAssist setup. A 2.4-liter, four-cylinder gas engine rated 182 horsepower at 6,200 rpm, 172 pounds-feet of torque at 4,900 rpm, is mated with a 15-hp/79 lbs.-ft. electric motor that moves the car momentarily before the gas engine restarts and takes over after extended stops. Electric also provides acceleration boost. Six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode.
