2010 CHEVROLET MALIBU
Racking up countless accolades and recommendations since being named the North American Car of the Year in 2008, the Chevy Malibu continues to offer great efficiency packaged in a signature design.
Changes for 2010 include three new exterior colors and the replacement of the driver's manual lumbar control with a new, power-adjustable control. Also, 17-inch chrome-clad wheels are standard on 2LT models; the 2.4L engine is E85-capable and the six-speed automatic transmission is now standard on 1LT models.
The 2.4L, 169-horsepower four-cylinder with six-speed automatic transmission is standard. The 3.6L V-6 with variable valve technology produces 252 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
With its strong stance and bold proportions, the Malibu has a profile that reinforces its substantial feel. Clean, pure lines and wheels pushed to the corners, as well as a visually lower, yet longer, greenhouse and a shorter deck suggest motion, agility and attitude.
The body sides are clean and elegant, interrupted only by distinctive, wheel-oriented forms that communicate an aggressive, stable stance and a rear profile with Corvette cues that connects to Chevrolet's rich performance heritage.
The interior's attention to detail matches the Malibu's exterior, with an ergonomic design using premium materials that convey quality and value. The integrated, flowing instrument panel features a Chevrolet-signature dual-cockpit design, with prominent gauges backlit in blue, and metallic or wood grain accents.
