Think of the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu in the segment of mid-size sedans makes a grand entry this year with its sleek exterior dimensions packing in a luxurious interior and a decent count of advanced technology features.
The onlookers as well as the sellers with whom we got to discuss about the virtues of the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu were all enthusiastic about the engine options that the current lineup consists of. We got to explore two turbocharged four-cylinder engines, as well as a hybrid powertrain, at the Gardendale Chevrolet dealer that are offered at a reasonable price tag. But irrespective of the engine you choose to drive, the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu is consistent in delivering a comfortable ride that can only be derived from a secure handling.
The 2020 lineup of the Chevrolet Malibu is stretched in five trim levels, namely, the L, LS, RS, LT and Premier. We booked a test drive with the mid-range LT trim that drove with a standard power train compromised of a 160-hp making 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, though there is a yet more powerful engine of 2.0-liter capacity which is reserved only to be driven at the range-topping Premier trim. The LT trim was equipped with niceties like LED taillights, 17-inch wheels, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, remote engine starting, an acoustically laminated windshield and heated front seats.
Drive Technology Features
Chevrolet has geared up the 2020 lineup of Malibu with Driver Confidence I and Driver Confidence II packages to make each and every driving move a smooth one. These packages ensure a basic level of road safety with safety features like rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and rear parking sensors are included in both, but the Confidence II package also adds up some more safety layers by equipping the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu with the advantages of driving with automated emergency braking, automatic high-beams, lane-keep assist, and forward-collision warning features.
Interior Comfort and Utility
The interior cabin of the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu will impress you with its practical approach without compromising on the comfort and utility aspects. The primary focus of the cabin is clearly on making each of its occupants feel comfortable as well as creating an ergonomically friendly atmosphere. The cabin has allotted an appreciable stretch of space for the passengers, while a symmetrically aligned dashboard along with a large opening at the center stack worked positively in making the cockpit look more spacious than it really is.
The front seats in each of the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu offers a relatively wider base than its rivals that are highly supportive for longer journeys. Thanks to the side bolsters. The rear seat with a decent legroom can fit in every adult frame.
Our test drive with the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu at the Gardendale Chevrolet dealership was pleasant enough to tempt us to make it our one of the most favorite sedans with all the virtues that it has packed in. Simultaneously, the model could make similar impression to other onlookers as well, who might have entered the showroom after being smitten by is attractive design and disposition.
