Chevrolet Malibu

The 2008 Chevrolet Malibu is going to make its public debut at the North American International Auto Show and it announces high levels of performance, refinement, fuel economy as well as a tailored design that is meant to carry the new face of Chevrolet. Ed Peper, Chevrolet general manager, stated that the 2008 Malibu rewrote Chevrolet's midsize car strategy by offering its enthusiasts an uncompromising and stylish package that stacks up against the most popular competitors. The Malibu re-affirmed Chevrolet's commitment to expressive cars and asserted its leadership position in the segment. Its new proportions bring a fresh perspective to the midsize segment with a wheelbase that is three inches longer than Toyota Camry. Three well-equipped trim levels are available for the new Malibu, the LS, LT and LTZ, all of them featuring impressive safety traits embodied by head-curtain side air bags and front-seat thorax air bags. Malibu's profile reinforces its substantial feel, providing pure, clean lines and wheels pushed to the corners. The engineers paid a lot of attention to detail by including minimized panel gaps as well as a tight wheel-to-body relationship. The theme is carried in the interior, which makes extensive use of premium materials, thus conveying only value and quality. Utility is maximised by the greater storage with the sliding cover of the deep center console opening in order to accommodate larger items. OnStar Gen 7, which incorporates standard automatic crash notification, and onStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation, are available for all 2008 Malibu models.
