They say do not judge a book by its cover so we will take a sneak peak at the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu. There is little information on this sedan, but we have consulted several reliable sources. The pictures of this sedan appeared several months ago, so you probably already know what it looks like but we will try to give you more details about it. To tell you the truth, this is not one of the most anticipated cars of 2017, but that does not mean it has nothing to offer. One of the best things about the new 2017 Chevrolet Malibu is the price. It comes with the same old style, slightly refreshed, however, but the first things first.
2017 Chevrolet Malibu Exterior Changes
We can legitimately say that the exterior design of the Chevrolet Malibu 2017 can blow everyone. The design is very elegant and sporty and also improves the dimensions by being a bit longer and at the same time much more elegant. The inspiration for this car was also taken from the Chevrolet Impala and combining these features with the original benchmarks of the Malibu we get an almost perfect combination for the next car.

The Impala’s clues are reflected in the changes to the headlights, the front apron, the belt folds added to the car, the rear lights and the set. There are unique features that have been incorporated, such as the slit grille. The group of rear lights at the rear also improved and its design become thinner once you go towards the group of taillights. The rear fascia is now much more aerodynamic and has a European style of style.
The improvements for the Chevrolet Malibu 2017 continue inside. The previous car suffered from a bad spacing of the rear legs, although the entire interior was rather well laid out and beautiful. So with the expanded dimension they were able to correct the interior comfort defects that the car had and at the same time they were able to bring together a high-tech interior that is easy to use as well.
The central stack has been simplified because the new 7-inch color touch screen allows you to control much of the car and in this way it removes all the buttons and buttons that the model has named. You can even get an eight inch screen as a standard option for the car’s higher finishing levels. The dash, although revised, will always have wrap-around design and there will be a three-spoke steering wheel used with an updated button layout.

The 2.0-liter turbo-four is also going to be used for superior trim level models and will be able to come in less power and better fuel economy as well but with an eight-speed automatic as its basic choice.
