2016 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ Black Jet Black w/Leather-Appointed Seat Trim. 34/24 Highway/City MPG Awards: * 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick * 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick with optional front crash prevention * 2016 KBB.com 16 Best Family Cars * 2016 KBB.com Best Buy Award Finalist
The only powertrain for the Malibu Limited is a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine features direct injection and overhead cams, and includes fuel-saving stop/start technology. It makes 196 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque on regular-grade gas. This powertrain returns good fuel economy, achieving up to 34 mpg on the highway.
The 2016 Malibu Limited comes in three trims, including basic LS, mid-range LT and top-of-the-line LTZ. Remote keyless entry, cruise control and tilt/telescopic steering adjustment are among many standard features at the base LS level, while LT models include heated mirrors with integrated turn signals and Bluetooth. The optional Style and Technology package includes remote start, power-adjustable driver seat, rearview camera and a power sunroof.
The LTZ includes 18-inch aluminum wheels, a premium touch-screen audio system, voice-recognition and smartphone integration, power-adjustable leather seats and dual-zone climate control.
Across the model line, the Malibu Limited gets a dual-cockpit interior design, with high-quality materials; its exterior design also fits in with other Chevy models like the Camaro and Cruze. One of the design highlights of the interior is a radio face that swivels outward to reveal a large storage space behind.
There are 10 standard airbags on all 2016 Malibu Limited models. The optional Advanced Safety Package includes a number of advanced safety systems that include a forward collision alert, lane departure warning and a side blind zone alert.
MyLink And 4G LTE And In-car Wi-Fi Connectivity
The Malibu Limited is based on the 2015 Malibu. It maintains that car's styling and much of its standard equipment. However, the 2.0L turbocharged engine is not available on the 2016 Limited.
The 2016 Malibu Limited competes with mid-size 4-door sedans such as the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Fusion and Hyundai Sonata.
For that, at somewhat less than the Camry Hybrid or Fusion Hybrid, the Malibu Limited stands out as a strong value -- especially for those who plan to do more mileage on the highway.
The Malibu should also hit the mark for shoppers who are looking for a value-laden mid-size, as well as those who need to stay connected. While the Malibu Limited maintains the previous model year's design, it benefits from being a lower-priced option among mid-size sedans in a proven design. With the standard MyLink system, drivers can get simple hands-free calling functions as well as entertainment through streaming-audio apps.
