Chevrolet Malibu Selling Better Than Ever

The #Chevrolet Malibu is proving more popular than ever before, selling the best it ever has since being reintroduced in 1996.

In the first 11 months of the year, more Malibus have been sold than any year prior, allowing the mid-size sedan to become the highest selling car for General Motors, displacing the budget Chevrolet Cruze.

GM has tried for many years to perfect the Malibu and introduced a redesigned model in 2007 with high hopes. However, after the financial crises, it proved unsuccessful and even the 2012 Malibu failed to deliver. But in 2015, a totally new generation was released with an edgy design and advanced technologies and it seems to have done the trick.

Last month, sales of the Chevrolet Malibu topped the Ford Fusion but are still someway shy of rivalling those of the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, reports Automotive News.

According to director of auto testing at Consumer Reports, Jake Fisher, “It's a serious competitor, there's no question. They're really not just up there with the best -- they're actually the leaders when it comes to quiet and ride. Toyota and Honda could learn something from them.”

Beyond its all-new design, key attractions of the current Chevrolet Malibu include safety features like Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. It is also available with a number of powertrains including a 182 hp hybrid setup, a 1.5-liter Ecotec and a 2.0-liter turbo.
