Worldly Style

Embodying the aggressive stance of a sports car combined with the clean, classic lines of a high-end luxury car, Malibu has taken on all the right touches to attract attention. The vehicle has been redesigned to create a wider track and a shorter wheelbase along with available 19" inch wheels (requires turbocharged engine) that makes for a bold yet unmistakably elegant presence in motion or standing still.

Aerodynamic Design

Aside from striking style, Malibu also wields design with purpose. Aerodynamic details guide airflow seamlessly around the vehicle body to help increase fuel efficiency by decreasing resistance. The aero-optimized rounded corners, taillamps and side mirrors allow the car to effortlessly slice through the air.

The easily accessible storage includes an area behind the available 7" diagonal color touch-screen.

No detail overlooked

Expert craftsmanship can be found throughout Malibu whether in its refined surfacing with premium materials or the rich appointments available throughout such as chrome, woodgrain or metallic accents, depending on the model. The sleek interior features acoustic laminated glass for a superb level of quietness as well as low-gloss surfacing and soft-touch tactility to provide a luxurious appearance.

MALIBU ECO WITH EASSIST: ENGINEERED FOR PROFICIENCY

2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco Sedan with EAssist Power Display

The Brains to Match the Beauty

With Malibu Eco, technology and style come together to bring you a fuel-efficient drive. The ECOTEC® 2.4L
engine with eAssist technology works subtly with the vehicle's mechanics, capturing energy to help support the
powertrain. The result is a remarkable EPA-estimated 37 MPG on the highway and up to 580 highway
miles per tank
. The 7-inch diagonal touch-screen available with eAssist includes a Power Flow display
that indicates which mode eAssist is in. Malibu not only boasts intuitive efficiency with the assistance of eAssist technology but also carries on the line of style the makes Malibu what it is.

2013 Chevy Malibu Eco Sedan EPA-Estimated 37 MPG Highway

Using Fuel Intelligently with eAssist

Midsize is taken to the next level with eAssist technology, a system that works intelligently and subtly with the vehicle’s mechanics, capturing energy to help support the powertrain. The result is a remarkable EPA-estimated 37 MPG on the highway and a vehicle that uses fuel when you need it, and preserves it when you don’t.

Regenerative Braking

There’s no need to ever think about charging the lithium-ion battery. eAssist features regenerative braking that captures power normally lost during coasting or braking, converts it to electricity and stores it for when it’s needed, helping keep the lithium-ion battery charged and off your to-do list.

Lithium-Ion Battery Pack

How do you power a battery without charging it? It’s simple: Just drive and in certain scenarios the lithium-ion battery stores energy to keep charged. That energy is later used to deliver an electric boost to the engine during heavy acceleration or climbing a grade. And while the vehicle is at a stop, the engine shuts off and the battery-powered motor-generator unit powers accessories, preserving fuel so it can be used later.

2.4L with Eassist

ECOTEC® 2.4L Direct Injection 4-Cylinder Engine

Offering an EPA-estimated 25 MPG city/37 highway in a midsize sedan takes careful thought. However, offering such remarkable fuel economy along with 182 horsepower and its solid, connected-to-the-road feel of a premium sedan … well, that takes passion. With its ECOTEC® 2.4L Direct Injection 4-cylinder engine that works intuitively with the 15 kW motor-generator unit to conserve fuel when it’s not needed, Malibu Eco uses smarter engineering for smarter driving.

15 kW Motor-Generator Unit

Owning the 2013 Malibu Eco means you get a smarter drive. When the car is stopped, it automatically switches from using gas to energy from the lithium-ion battery. The motor-generator unit brings the engine to a smooth stop and prepares it for a seamless start when the brake pedal is released. Drivers wouldn’t notice the transition if it weren’t for the integrated high-resolution full-color Driver Information Center and 7-inch diagonal touch-screen that display when the battery is supporting the powertrain.

STATEMENT-MAKING PERFORMANCE

2013 Chevrolet Malibu Mid Size Sedan

Ride and Handling

To enhance the Malibu experience, ride and handling has been tuned and calibrated on rural roads, highways and at testing facilities around the world. The wider track and stiffer structure delivers more responsive, solid handling while the premium ZF steering components offer top-of-the-line precision and control. The four-wheel antilock disc brakes help ensure reliable stopping performance. The hydraulic ride bushings and tuned suspension also work together to give you a quiet and overall smooth ride.

Power Meets Practicality

When it comes to Malibu, satisfaction comes with the power to reach your destination without ever having to compromise. The power starts at the heart of the vehicle through the ECOTEC® 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with direct injection and Variable Valve Timing (standard on LS, LT and LTZ) and the available ECOTEC 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine also with direct injection and Variable Valve Timing. The engine provides great lower-end torque and enhanced fuel-economy while still delivering 197 horsepower (LS, LT and LTZ) or 259 horsepower, with available turbocharged engine. With all of these details, Malibu provides you with practical power no matter where the road takes you.

    BUILT FOR SAFETY

    2013 Chevy Malibu Mid Size Sedan Safety Features

    Before

    Protection is great, but prevention is better. The 2013 Malibu was designed with that in mind, offering technologies that can help avoid collisions altogether including 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, traction control and the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System.

    There's also the available Lane Departure Warning that lets you know when you're wandering from your lane without using your turn signal (above 25 mph), and available advanced Forward Collision Alert that signals, when you're rapidly approaching a vehicle, that a collision may become imminent.

    During

    In the event of a collision, Malibu is equipped to help protect you and your passengers. For the first time, Malibu now includes 10 airbags including knee air bags for the driver and front passenger. Structural integrity of the vehicle is important during a collision and Malibu provides an extremely strong, stiff body and an ultra-high-strength steel safety cage, along with rollover protection.

    After

    Every Malibu offers the security of OnStar®†with Automatic Crash Response, standard for the first six months. Built-in sensors can automatically alert an OnStar Advisor who is immediately connected to you through your vehicle to see if you need help sent to your exact location — even if you can’t respond.

    HOW SUSTAINABLE IS THE MALIBU?

    Check out its “Ecologic” Features. Here at Chevrolet, we believe in being a responsible steward of our environment. Recently, we’ve developed a new way to communicate some of the environmentally significant features of each vehicle we make. We call it “Ecologic.”

    Every aspect of Ecologic is audited by Two Tomorrows, an independent third party sustainability auditor. To learn more about Ecologic and the Two Tomorrows’ process, click here.

    Fuel-Saving Technologies

    An electronically controlled six-speed transmission allows the engine to operate at a lower rate of speed as compared to transmissions with fewer gears, which results in better fuel economy. Low-mass materials, such as an aluminum hood and carbon-reinforced composite intake manifold, reduce engine workload and contribute to better fuel economy.

    The Malibu Eco eAssist uses a 15kW electric-motor generator that takes advantage of the forward motion of the car during slowdown to generate electricity, which is sent to the battery for storage. The stored energy provides the ability to run accessories without burning gasoline when the engine shuts off and when decelerating. It also provides an electric boost of torque when needed for acceleration and passing. This motor generator also boosts the 2.4L engine by 15 horsepower for added fuel efficiency in certain conditions. Malibu Eco achieves an EPA-estimated 37 MPG on the highway.

    Responsible Manufacturing

    The transmission facilities are landfill-free. These facilities use a process to reuse, recycle or convert to energy all waste created in their daily operations, which conserves resources. Landfill gas supplies 16% of the energy to heat and cool the Toledo, OH, transmission facility, which makes the facility less reliant on fossil fuels.

    The Detroit-Hamtramck, MI, assembly facility, Spring Hill, TN, engine facility and Toledo, OH, transmission facility feature designated habitat areas certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council, which provide ecological benefits.

    End-of-Life Recyclability

    After the vehicle’s useful life, 85% of it is recyclable. The majority of its components can be broken down and recycled, which conserves resources and reduces landfill deposits.
