Chevrolet continued its global rollout of the all-new 2013 Malibu midsize sedan with its most fuel-efficient Malibu ever – the Malibu Eco. The Malibu Eco is the first model of the all-new 2013 Malibu lineup to reach dealer showrooms in North America, bringing with it:
• A sporty exterior shaped to save fuel. • An all-new interior with more room, comfort and premium materials. • Sound-reducing and sound-absorbing components to make it the quietest Chevrolet in history. • All-new Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system that enhances customer connectivity. • All-new ride-and-handling package. • Engineering to meet top safety results around the world.
The heart of the Malibu Eco is its segment-exclusive, fuel-saving eAssist™ technology, which provides GM-estimated 25 mpg city and 37 mpg highway fuel economy. EAssist™ technology combines start-stop technology with regenerative braking and a lightweight lithium-ion battery to provide an electric boost in certain conditions, improving fuel economy by 12 percent over today’s four-cylinder engine. The Malibu Eco delivers better fuel economy than any non-hybrid midsize sedan currently available. An all-new Ecotec 2.5L engine debuts in the Malibu later this summer, followed by an all-new Ecotec 2.0L turbo engine. The new Malibu Eco is priced less than a full hybrid vehicle with a suggested retail price of $25,995, including a $760 destination charge. The 2013 Malibu is Chevrolet’s first global midsize sedan and will be sold in nearly 100 countries on six continents.
