The all-new Malibu will feature a global family of fuel-efficient and powerful four-cylinder engines, along with six-speed transmissions that also contribute to efficient performance. The Malibu was designed to stand out in all markets around the globe, while its European-inspired driving characteristics were engineered to challenge the best in its class.
The Malibu was Chevrolet's - and General Motors' - best-selling car in the United States in 2010, with sales of nearly 200,000 vehicles. It is among Chevrolet's most-decorated vehicles in the United States, earning more than 40 industry awards since 2008. The Malibu was the only midsize car in the industry to win the Consumers Digest Automotive "Best Buy" award the past three years - 2011, 2010 and 2009. The Malibu has also been named a "Top Safety Pick" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety the past two years.
