The Chevy Malibu has been one of the staples of the Chevrolet Corporation. The vehicle has been around for around 50 years and has seen many upgrades during its tenure. The 2013 version has been completely redesigned from ground up. The car features upgrades in the interior sections, performance and exterior designs. There are currently four trim levels available for the Malibu: LS, LT, LTZ, and Eco. The LTZ is the top of the line model, while the Eco is the hybrid version.
The interior has been outfitted with better noise cancellation, which will provide you with a quieter and more comfortable ride. In addition, all the models except the LS trim, features a touch screen that controls all your basic functions, to include GM’s new MyLink system within the vehicle. There are also additional features that can be added on such as, navigation, forward-collision warning systems, and a rearview camera.
The 2013 Malibu also feature an upgrade in the power train and performance department. All come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, with an optional 2.0-liter turbo engine. The estimated fuel economy is around 22 mpg for the city and 34 mpg for the highway, with an overall average of 26 mpg during normal driving.
Along with the upgraded power train, the safety features have also been enhanced. The 2013 Chevy Malibu comes with antilock brakes, stability and traction control, all a comprehensive air bags system that protects your front, sides and back areas. With all these safety upgrades, it has been awarded its best possible rating of “Good” for overall protection.
