2020 Chevrolet Malibu comes as unchanged model from the last year, so there are no many interesting facts to share about it. There are greatly designed cabin and strong engine, while the equipment could be better for the standard model.
- The model is modernly designed and attractive.
- It has a great hybrid engine as optional.
- The cabin is too poor for the car in the class.
- The equipment in the base model is too poor.
Aiming to compete with the best models in the class, 2020 Chevrolet Malibu literally impress at first glance. There are similarities with main competitors Mazda 6, mostly in size and height, but details are different. We used on wide mesh grille on the front end of the car, with a metallic line across it. There is great rear end, with curves on the trunk door and modernly designed rear lights. The model is lowered, assuming sports usage of the car, but there are also elegant details on the edges. The car is driven on the same platform as last year model.
The cabin in 2020 Chevrolet Malibu is attractive and modern, as well as comfortable, as on other models made in this factory. There are no surprises from the last year model, so we expect a wide and roomy cabin, with modernly designed dashboard and approachable buttons. However, the manufacturer has not included so much in the design of it, and it should be on the list of the simplest cabins in sedans. When it comes to the equipment, be prepared for the poor offer in the base model, like 8-inch touchscreen and only a few features in the infotainment system.
There are no changes in the engine in 2020 Chevrolet Malibu either. It is supposed to run on three optional engines without any change in strength and speed. The base model should have 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbo petrol engine with the strength of the 163 horsepower. This engine gets CVT transmission. The stronger version runs on 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 250 horsepower. It comes matched with nine-speed automatic transmission. Lastly, there is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder petrol unit paired with the lithium-ion battery and 182 horsepower of strength. However, there is a poor safety system that comes as a standard, so Malibu is one of the rarest models that do not have an emergency brake system in the base model. Do not forget that competitors, like Toyota Camry or Honda Accord, have it as standard equipment.
2020 Chevrolet Malibu Release Date and Price
Since there were not many changes in 2020 Chevrolet Malibu so far, there are high chances that the price will not be changed. It means that the price will be around $22,000 for the standard model with possible increasing for additional equipment. However, do not celebrate too soon, the standard model is far away from the competition in many ways. The releasing date is halfway through the next year.
