Today, we’ve got a doozy: the 2016 Chevy Malibu Pricing Information. There are five total trims available for 2016, the L, LS, LT, Hybrid and Premier. However, the information regarding the Hybrid hasn’t yet been made available, so stay tuned for that as it becomes available. So, without further ado….
2016 Chevy Malibu Pricing Information
2016 Chevy Malibu L (Starting at $22,500)
Welcome to the new base level. Believe it or not, the Malibu L starts at a price beneath some of the segment’s fiercest competitors, including the Fusion, Accord, Camry and Altima. However, that shouldn’t have you believing that it doesn’t deliver the goods where it counts. Standard features in the L include a 1.5L four-cylinder engine, 10 interior airbags, cruise control push-button start with passive entry and stop/start technology.
2016 Chevy Malibu LS (Starting at $23,995)
Those who opt for the LS will receive everything found in the L, but with a significant upgrade in technology. The LS receives standard Chevy MyLink Radio, along with a 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen paired with a rear vision camera. As has been popularly reported already, drivers may also now sync their smartphones to the MyLink interface using either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
2016 Chevy Malibu LT (Starting at $25,895)
It’s at the LT level when the Malibu truly steps out. In addition to the features mentioned above, the LT offers two additional powertrains: an EcoTec 1.5L Turbo that is expected to deliver up to 37 highway mpg, and a 2.0L Turbo that enjoys an 8-speed automatic transmission to deliver an estimated 32 highway mpg. As optional features, the LT also gets more tech amenities such as wireless internet and crash mitigation tech.

2016 Chevy Malibu Premier (Starting MSRP, $31,795)
Residing at the top of the trim offerings is the Premier, which enjoys the 2.0L Turbo as a standard powertrain. This one truly gets all the bells and whistles: standard leather with wood trim, all the tech features and a host of crash mitigation amenities that are new to the Malibu, including Lane Keep Assist, Front Pedestrian Braking and Low Speed Front Automatic Braking. It also gets the Teen Driver feature as standard, which lets parents keep close tabs on their younger drivers with data recording and the ability to set driving parameters.
So there you have it, everyone! We’ll divulge the details of the Malibu Hybrid as they become available, and keep posted for the arrival of the 2016 Chevy Malibu at Harbin Automotive!
