Chevrolet hopes to win back midsize sedan fans with the redesigned 2016 Malibu it says it will introduce at the New York Auto Show a little more than a month from now.
The new model, the maker hints, will be longer yet lighter and more fuel-efficient. It will get a number of new tech features. And, from the teaser image Chevy is offering up, it appears to be evolving into a more coupe-like body style. Chevy clearly needs to make some major improvement after some disappointing missteps with the current sedan.
“Using a blank slate approach, Chevrolet designers benefited from an entirely new architecture, which for Malibu includes a wheelbase nearly four inches longer than the outgoing model,” the maker says. “That, in turn, provides increased rear legroom and interior space.”
