Do some research, and you will notice that the New Chevy Malibu is more than just an incredibly versatile and popular sedan. This midsize sedan offers great fuel economy and interior space and a range of trim options. With four main trims and a few sub-trims, there is a Malibu configuration for every Sulphur Springs driver regardless of budget and feature requirements.
Chevy Malibu L
Sticking the Malibu L gives you minimal features, but it does offer everything most people truly need. This trim gives you 16-inch steel wheels, air-conditioning, cruise control, and keyless entry plus ignition. The steering wheel tilts and telescopes; the front seats are height adjustable and the rear seat splits 60/40 and folds. You also get Bluetooth for phone, 6 speakers, and OnStar.
Chevy Malibu LS
Upgrading to the 2016 Malibu LS will change the steel wheels to alloy ones and add automatic headlights. It also upgrades your OnStar system to one with 4G LTE connectivity so you can turn your sedan into a Wi-Fi hotspot. This trim also adds Bluetooth streaming audio, a rearview camera, and a 7-inch touchscreen that works with MyLink infotainment, a system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Chevy Malibu LT
The Malibu LT is divided into two sub-trims depending on the engine you choose. The 1LT builds on the LS, adding 17-inch wheels, heated mirrors, and LED daytime running lights to the exterior. It also gives you satellite radio, rear climate vents, ambient interior lighting, and an 8-way power adjustable seat featuring power lumbar for the driver.
The LT2 has the 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine instead of the base 1.5-liter 4-cylinder. It also gives you a bigger fuel tank, dual exhaust tips, and 18-inch wheels.
Chevy Malibu Premier
For those who want to get the most luxurious Chevrolet Malibu possible, the Premier trim is ideal. It adds LED taillights and 19-inch wheels to the exterior. For convenience, you get an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a driver information display in color, wireless smartphone charging, and remote ignition. Other technology enhancements include 9 speakers of Bose sound, navigation, an 8-inch touchscreen, 2 extra USB ports for charging, and a 120-volt outlet. To keep you comfortable, this trim also adds dual-zone automatic climate control, a heated steering wheel, driver seat memory, ventilated and heated front seats, 6-way power adjustment plus power lumbar for the front passenger, and leather upholstery.
