Malibu Man to the Rescue
Updated October 2, 2013
From 2008 to 2012, the Chevrolet Malibu was one of the favorite mid-sized sedans on the road, bringing sleek luxury into the reach of the average consumer. With the premiere of the sporty new 2013 Malibu, Chevy has topped themselves again, and when car shoppers need a reliable Chevrolet dealer in Grand Rapids to give them a test drive, it’s Malibu Man to the rescue at Tinney Chevrolet, with great prices on this hot new model!
The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu features a number of improvements over the previous design, including a wider-set track and lower wheelbase, contributing to the Malibu’s sporty new look. The wider-set wheels help the Malibu grip the road, giving it more responsive handling for greater control and precision, and provide three more square feet of interior space for added elbow-room. The striking, aerodynamic lines make the Malibu more than just a pretty face; they improve air flow around the body of the vehicle, reducing drag and increasing fuel efficiency. A 2.5L four-cylinder engine with improved lower-end torque gives the Malibu plenty of power while keeping fuel efficiency high, offering more than 30mpg at highway speeds.
For even better performance, the Malibu Eco with eAssist technology boasts a lithium-ion battery pack that charges whenever the car coasts or brakes. The lithium-ion battery supports the power train, giving the engine an electric boost on inclines and during acceleration, and powers the accessories when the car is at rest, saving fuel to give the Malibu Eco an EPA-estimated 37mpg fuel efficiency on the highway.
The interior of the Malibu is as comfortable and luxurious as the outside is sporty and performance-engineered. Acoustic laminated glass and noise-reduction features under the hood like the low-noise timing chain make for a smooth and quiet ride. The touch-soft interior and sport-sculpted front seats make driving a pleasure, and 10 standard air bags give passengers the peace of mind that safety brings.
The 2013 Malibu has a number of available features that make the ride a pleasure. A seven-inch touch-screen display can be used to monitor the Eco’s eAssist Power Flow, and to control your entertainment selections. Chevrolet MyLink allows you to stream content to the touch-screen monitor so that you can listen to your favorite Pandora stations, Stitcher SmartRadio, or SiriusXM Satellite Radio. A USB port allows you to connect a flash drive or MP3 player to play your own music selections. The display responds to touch controls or voice commands, letting the driver keep his attention on the road while making the most of his drive.
