2013 Chevrolet Malibu Lineup Provides Choices for Drivers

2013 Chevrolet Malibu 2.5L LTZ

Elizabeth City, NC – The all-new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, now available at Performance Chevrolet provides Elizabeth City area drivers with expressive design, advanced technologies and fuel-efficient powertrains; and delivers precise ride and handling. It has been engineered to be best-in-class and on par with more expensive sports sedans.

The Malibu comes in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels, along with the Malibu Eco, which uses fuel-saving eAssist ™ technology to enable EPA-estimated fuel economy of 25 city / 37 highway, and the Malibu Turbo which features a new, direct-injected Ecotec 2.0L turbocharged engine – rated at 259 horsepower (193 kW), making it one of the most power-dense automotive engines in the industry.

“The all-new Malibu lineup provides our customers with a wide range of options that are sure to fit their needs on the road,” said Trey Colbert, Internet Sales Director of Performance Chevrolet.  “Ranging from the Eco model to the Malibu Turbo, this vehicle has something for everyone with styling cues from the Camaro and Corvette that will let you stand out in the crowd.”

The MalibuMalibu Eco and Malibu Turbo are on sale now at Performance Chevrolet and are priced starting at $23,150, $25,595 and $27,710 respectively.

The exterior design of the all-new Malibu carries DNA from its sister vehicles, the Camaro and Corvette, to bring a sporty sensibility to the family sedan segment. A wider stance, broad shoulders and an integrated rear spoiler bring a new athleticism to Malibu and give it a more aggressive appearance. The new Malibu has 62-inch (1,574 mm) front and rear tracks that are more than two inches (51 mm) wider than the model it replaces.

Other exterior design cues include Chevrolet’s dual-port grille, projector-beam headlamps, larger Chevrolet bow-tie badges front and rear, and new Camaro-inspired dual-element taillamps. Malibu LTZ adds LED taillamps, chrome-tipped dual exhaust outlets, 18-inch alloy wheels and available high-intensity discharge headlamps.

Additional product highlights include:

  •  Expressive exterior design with a wide, athletic stance
  • Segment-best aerodynamics – close to those of the Chevrolet Volt extended-range electric car – that enhance fuel efficiency and reduce wind noise, including active electronic shutters on Eco and other select models
  • All-new, Chevrolet-signature dual-cockpit interior that is more spacious, features premium materials and is engineered to be the quietest in the midsize segment
  • European-influenced ride and handling traits
  • New safety features and technologies including 10 standard air bags, ultra-high-strength steel, lane departure warning/forward collision warning and rearview camera system
  • Ten exterior colors and four interior color combination choices, depending on the model.

Six months of OnStar Directions and Connections service is standard on Malibu. OnStar is the global leading provider of connected safety, security and mobility solutions and advanced information technology.

Malibu also offers the new Chevrolet MyLink, which seamlessly integrates online services such as Pandora® Internet radio and Stitcher SmartRadio® using hands-free voice and touch-screen controls via Bluetooth-enabled phones. MyLink adds stereo audio streaming and wireless control of smartphones, building on the voice-activated Bluetooth hands-free calling capability already offered in most Chevrolet vehicles.

MyLink features a high-resolution, full-color touch screen display designed to manage the number of steps required to complete a task. It also retains all the capabilities of conventional entertainment features, including AM/FM/Sirius XM tuners, CD player with MP3 playback, auxiliary and USB inputs.

Chevrolet Malibu Eco Achieves Double Safety Honors

file

Elizabeth City, NC – The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco, available at Performance Chevrolet, is the first and only all-new 2013 midsize car available to Elizabeth City drivers to receive double honors for safety including a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a 2012 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Both are the highest ratings possible.

The IIHS tests vehicles to determine how well they protect occupants in front and side crash tests, in rollovers via a roof strength test, and simulated rear impacts to evaluate seat and head restraints for protection against neck injuries. The Malibu Eco achieved a “good” score in all four types of tests performed and has standard electronic stability control, which the IIHS requires for Top Safety Pick designation.

In achieving the 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score, the Malibu Eco was tested under NHTSA’s revised New Car Assessment Program.  The overall score is based on frontal and side crash tests in addition to evaluation for rollover resistance. Under the rating system, performances in three test segments are combined mathematically into an “Overall Vehicle Score.”

“With the Malibu Eco, Chevrolet has earned seven 2012 TOP SAFETY PICK awards,” said IIHS President Adrian Lund.  “The IIHS and NHTSA results demonstrate GM’s commitment to state-of-the-art crash protection.”

Under this methodology, the Chevy Malibu Eco achieved an Overall Vehicle Score of five stars – the highest rating possible – even though some individual ratings, such as rollover, resulted in four stars.

The all-new 2013 Malibu will be sold in nearly 100 markets on six continents. It was designed and engineered to achieve top safety ratings and to meet pedestrian protection standards where such requirements exist. Last November, General Motors announced that the Malibu also earned a top five-star rating by the European New Car Assessment Program, known as Euro NCAP.

GM designs its new products to perform well in the metrics IIHS and NHTSA use to communicate crash worthiness to customers. There are 11 GM 2012 models with a 5-Star Overall Vehicle NCAP score and the Malibu Eco is among the first 2013 GM models to receive this rating. There are now 15 GM vehicles that have an IIHS 2012 Top Safety Pick designation.

“Our customers are interested in the Malibu Eco not only for its fuel economy, but also for its safety features,” said Jimmie Ritter of Performance Chevrolet. “This designation by NHTSA and IIHS confirms that the Malibu Eco delivers top safety performance.”

The all-new Malibu is designed and engineered to help Elizabeth City drivers avoid crashes, while protecting occupants if a crash occurs. Standard safety features include:

  • A body structure made up of 65 percent high strength and ultra-high strength steels
  • Driver and front passenger dual-stage frontal air bags, seat-mounted side air bags and knee air bags and head curtain side air bags with rollover protection that cover front and outboard rear-seating rows
  • Rollover sensors which can activate the head curtain side air bags if sensors determine an imminent rollover. In a rollover, the air bags stay inflated longer to provide increased occupant protection
  • StabiliTrak electronic stability control helps the driver maintain control by comparing the path being steered by the driver with the actual response and, when necessary, applying the brakes or adjusting the throttle or a combination of both
  • Four-channel disc brakes with ABS, full-function traction control and panic brake assist that activates when an emergency braking maneuver is detected. The system automatically develops additional brake pressure to more quickly engage ABS
  • Front safety belt pretensioners to reduce forward movement and load-limiting retractors to help manage forces during a collision
  • OnStar, which features the Automatic Crash Response System that uses GPS and cellular phone technology to automatically call for help in a crash that deploys the air bags.

The Malibu Eco is the sixth Chevy model within the 2012 model year to achieve a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety. The others include the Camaro Coupe, Sonic, Cruze, Volt and Traverse. The 2012 Malibu is also is a Top Safety Pick.

The Malibu Eco with fuel-saving eAssist technology is Chevrolet’s most fuel-efficient midsize car ever. It is on sale now in the United States with a base price including destination of $25,995, less than competitor full hybrid vehicles. Chevrolet is scheduled to roll out an all-new fuel-efficient 2.5L Ecotec engine on the full Malibu lineup this summer. A new turbo model will be available this fall.
