You get all this and more in the Chevrolet Malibu, which is known for its quiet cabin, supportive seating, and impressive passenger protection. You know you want one - but you might still be wondering whether it's better to buy new or used. We've got you covered. Check out our side-by-side comparison, where we go over the most important changes between the used 2012 and new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu.
If, like most of us, you need technology to survive, the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu has you covered. It has all the latest and greatest infotainment features. For starters, the MyLink central infotainment system comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These features make smartphone integration a snap. Use the MyLink system to make hands-free calls and texts; there's no need to look away from traffic. Sound like a good plan? The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu also delivers 4G LTE Wi-Fi, which isn't available in the used 2012 Malibu. You can use it to surf the Web on all your favorite devices, which is a great option for passengers on a road trip.
With the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu, modern safety features also get a tech makeover. Highlights include the forward collision warning system, which includes low-speed automatic braking to help keep you from crashing. When you get the self-parking system, parallel parking is quick and easy. The lane-departure warning and intervention technology can tell when you've strayed outside the correct lane. The rearview camera is another sweet safety feature - it displays your rearview on the central screen whenever the Malibu is in reverse. Then there's OnStar telematics, which come in handy in a pinch. Features like on-demand roadside assistance and automatic collision notification keep you totally protected.
So you're looking for the most passenger space possible. That means you should definitely get your hands on the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu. After its redesign this year, it sports a lot more backseat space, which is a big improvement over the used 2012 Chevrolet Malibu. When you're hauling friends and family around town, they'll definitely appreciate the extra legroom. Up front, the 2016 Malibu also delivers the kind of plush cushioning and support that will keep you comfortable for hours on end.
We know you see it, too - the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu is the obvious choice. It gives you the power to make the most of your ride. When you want to stay connected on the go, the MyLink system keeps you on top of things. Then there's the safety stuff, which keeps you protected in new and innovative ways. If you're in the market for a family hauler, the 2016 Malibu still has the edge, because the backseat is bigger than ever.
