GM has announced the prices of the ninth generation 2016 Chevrolet Malibu for Canada. At CA$21,745, the 2016 base model’s price is CA$3,495 lower than the outgoing model. The 2016 Malibu will be offered in five trim levels – L, LS, LT, Hybrid and Premier. Pricing for the Malibu Hybrid will be announced closer to its production commencement in Spring 2016.
Built completely from the ground up, the 2016 Malibu is larger but lighter. Thanks to the 91 mm (3.6 inches) longer wheelbase, the rear legroom has been improved by 33 m (1.3 inches). The all-new model sees weight reduction of as much as 300 lbs (136 kg). GM says that the new generation Malibu is the “most fuel-efficient, connected and technologically advanced” Malibu-ever.
