The Chevrolet Malibu was always a handsome looking mid-size sedan that made many of its close rivals lag behind in the meter of popularity in terms of the package of features it could offer in such an affordable price. But Chevrolet didn’t stop its efforts to make this flagship sedan model more and more appealing with each of its new edition. The 2020 model year of Chevrolet Malibu can prove this point many ways.
The First Impression It Makes
Our recent visit to the showroom of the Burley Chevrolet dealer, gave us the opportunity of test drive the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu. At the first glance itself we found it to stylish to look at while our test drive with it proved that it was comfortable to ride as well.
We also realized within no time that this mid-size sedan from a leading brand like Chevrolet has managed to gather the best of both the worlds of an SUV and that of the crossovers. Be it the abundance of space, interior materials or performance score, the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu has it all.
Lining Up for the Year 2020
As Chevrolet has already given the 2018 Malibu lineup a mid-cycle refreshment, that engraved some sharp edges and curves to its majestic body, it still looks refreshingly handsome without any significant changes for this year.
For the 2020 year release, Chevrolet got Malibu few positive changes that includes two new exterior colors while a new artistic front grille with a novel wheel design for the RS trim models that escalated the overall exterior appearance score.
Otherwise, the 2020 year keeps offering the Chevrolet Malibu available in L, LS, RS, LT, and Premier trim levels, that will issue more and more creature comforting features as you agree to climb higher the ladder of price.
If you see a 2020 Chevrolet Malibu approaching, what will invariably catch your attention at the first glimpse is the wide-spread front grille with an artistic design. The sloping roofline that gives this sedan more of a coupe-like look might also catch your fancy, as the tapering tail end can.
After being equipped with the handsome RS appearance package, the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu continues to stand ahead of many other models as one of the best-looking sedans that also has many other appreciable features to be counted.
The interior with its relatively subdued design is deserving of a praise as well, that lays out a comfort zone with its good quality upholstery materials, while its infotainment system keeps you entertained through its huge standard touchscreen display both at the front and the center console integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Power to Perform
The 2020 Chevrolet Malibu offers you two engine options. One is the 1.5-liter turbo-4 one that can generate 163 of horsepower after being paired to continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). To drive with more power, you can opt for the 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine that can return you with 250 hp after the smooth 9-speed automatic transmission weds the engine.
Our test drive with the 2020 Malibu at the Chevrolet dealer serving Burley confirmed our belief in the automaker that is pursuing the aim of making this sedan model even more appealing from every aspect you can think of.
