The 2020 Chevrolet Malibu is a mid-size sedan that has its own contribution in reviving the glory of its segment. Its handsome demeanor is not the only quality that helped it overshadow the appeal of its competitors,but it is also its impressive list of standard features that made the buyers ditch the crossovers and turn towards this beautiful sedan.
First Glimpse and Further
We got to explore the 2020 model year series of Chevrolet Malibu at the showroom of Salem Chevrolet dealer where we found this mid-size sedan attracting a good number of crowd around its attractive models. When we delved deeper by taking a test drive with the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu, it took no time for us to realize, how it could easily break the chain of success that the SUV crossovers were enjoying at a row.
The 2020 Chevrolet Malibu being stylish and comfortable gets many other virtues packed inside its lavishly designed structure while the automaker took all the right decisions to power it with the most effective powertrain that will be enough to supplement the need of riding an SUV crossover.
Trims Lining Up for 2020
For the year 2020, Chevrolet has made the Malibu series undergo some minimal changes that include two new shades added to the exterior color palette and a reconstructed grille along with redesigned pairs of wheels especially for the RS trim. The other change we got to know later was that Chevrolet has dropped the Malibu Hybrid models witnessing its slow sales record. So, the year 2020 brings the Chevrolet Malibu in L, LS, RS, LT, and Premier flavors that get richer with more layers of creature comforts and safety assurances.
The Chevrolet Malibu series had a mid-cycle refresh just theprevious year, because of which it looks much sharper and modern, gathering a high praise from different corners who are still interested in mid-size sedans. Our first glimpse at the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu went automatically at itswidespread massive front grille which was followed by the sloping roofline and the tapered tail end, both giving it a more coupe-like look. We were shown how after being decked up with the RS appearance package, the overall appeal become simply irresistible.
Inside the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu sports a relaxed design in which the big sized standard touchscreen will catch all your attention both at the front and the center. Once you are on the move, it will support all the smartphone functionalities through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The 2020 Chevrolet Malibu receives its drive force from a 1.5-liter turbo-4 engine that can produce 163 horsepower that get carried to the front wheels with the help of a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). If that doesn’t motivate you enough, then go for the 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine that will elevate the horsepower to 250 after being paired to a smooth shifting 9-speed automatic transmission.
In this entire powertrain scenario what will make you feel energized more is the impressive Fuel economy rating that earned 32 mpg in a combined trip from the EPA, if you drive the base trim. But irrespective of the trim you choose, the handling and ride will be more than satisfying, that we realized from our test drive experience at the Salem Chevrolet dealership.
