With precision meeting power, the 2011 edition of Chevrolet Malibu has received a warm welcome here in UAE. Available in three variants from the basic 1LT,  to the mid range 2LT and top of the line LTZ, Malibu allows wide range of options.

With a smooth flowing body, magnificently crafted interiors and a five star frontal and side crash test rating, Chevrolet Malibu 2011 has got everything to make an impact on UAE.

Sleek and crispy lines flowing into beautiful curves, the body of Chevrolet Malibu 2011 is breath taking. Broad and curvy head-lamps guard Chevrolet’s signature dual-port chrome finished grille with a body colored bar running in between. Sharp lines on the chin holding the chrome rimmed fog lights bring aggressiveness to the styling. Smooth lines flow throughout its curvaceous body in a flawless pattern meeting the distinctive sail-shaped rear profile. However, the misfit shapes of the tail-lamps do not go well with its unique rear body design. Along with door handles and dual exhaust pipes finished in chrome, acoustic laminated glass, the entire body is build with premium materials in order to preserve quality. Body gaps in Malibu have been trimmed down to a mere 1mm to ensure a quite and smooth ride.  Chevrolet Malibu is held on huge 18” 10-spoke bright aluminum wheels (5-spoke for 1LT and 2LT).

Chevrolet has crafted Malibu’s interiors by paying attention to the minutest details and the result is an intelligently laid out beautifully finished interior.

Malibu contains sufficient storage space in the cabin as well as in the trunk. Seats a comfortable with 8-way powered seat adjuster for driver and 6-way powered for passenger. The lack of ambient lighting system which brings a dynamic feel to the interiors is Malibu’s only drawback. However, the sedan is loaded with lists of other features like key-less entry system and remote starter through which you can have a already cooled cabin even before you reach the car, enhance comfort making Malibu a tough contender in its class.

Malibu 2011 is available in two engine options. An economical 2.4L, DOHC, 16-valve, 4-cylinder VVT, SFI engine running standard on all variants and a high powered 3.6L V6 engine available as option on the 2LT and LTZ variants. Transmission is 6-speed automatic which is electronically controlled with overdrive. The mighty 3.6L gets a 6-speed automatic with high torque control for aggressive power. A heavy duty chassis ensures a stable and comfortable ride even at high speeds.

Unprecedented level of safety runs standard on all variants of Malibu with 6 SRS Airbags placed at different spots to absorb crash impact.  Safety is assured with four-wheel disc brakes, ABS and StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with traction control.
