Chevrolet Malibu Generations

Positioned between two popular sibling sedans, the compact Cruze and the full-size Impala, the midsize Malibu is a bit like the proverbial middle child. Both the bigger and smaller models often seem to command more attention. Yet all along, Chevrolet has been making gradual updates to keep the modern-day Malibu a compelling choice, even in the ultra-competitive family sedan market. For the 2016 model year, Chevrolet totally redesigned and enlarged the long-lived model, moving it to a longer wheelbase while shaving off almost 300 pounds.

3/4 Front Glamour 2003 Chevrolet MalibuMajor changes included:

It was simple. Chevrolet didn't have a model to compete with the Ford Contour, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima and Dodge Stratus.
