The current version of Chevrolet Malibu has already passed a long period of its life and needs updating. With this statement, not only motorists agree, but also the automaker himself. So, in 2019 an updated model of the sedan will be presented.

Next year a new generation of Chevrolet Malibu 2020 may enter the market. And now some details have become known. This was reported by the company’s representatives, citing the fact that the model requires updating for a long time to meet the spirit of the times, and to provide indicators for new environmental requirements.

Chevrolet Malibu 2020 model year will be completely redesigned. Most likely, the car will be built on a new platform (not yet reported on what). The design will also change, with only the concept of the model remaining in common, and the style will be executed in the most modern corporate design.

It is expected that the new version will not get compatible body parts with the predecessor, which once again confirms the deep processing of the model. In addition, the engine line will be replaced, which is now represented by a five-liter petrol turbo engine capable of developing up to 123 horsepower. Also in the engine line there is a turbo engine of 2.0 liters (259 horsepower) and 2.5 liter atmospheric (197 horsepower). Together with them, both mechanical and automatic transmission could be installed.

According to preliminary information, the standard equipment of the future novelty will be equipped with fully LED front and rear optics, a modern active and passive safety system, an infotainment system with a large display, several electronic driver assistants, and 16, 17 and 18 inch branded light alloy disks .

Unfortunately the exact date of the presentation and the beginning of the implementation is still unknown, so the cost has not been disclosed. Sales will probably begin only in 2020.
