2017 Chevy Malibu review
The exterior will not be changed much from the preceding version. However, it will have a redesigned and more stylish front end than the 2016 version. It will be made with super-strong steel, which would make the framework more robust this time. It will knock off around 136 kg to be lighter than the 2016 version, which will have a positive impact on its mileage and handling. The Epsilon 2 platform will be used as its basis. However, some reports suggest that the platform used by Impala could be used instead. Its wheelbase would be bigger by 9 cm and the car will be higher about 6 cm.
