2008 Chevrolet Malibu
By KBB.com Editors on April 21, 2009 9:20 AMIs the all-new Chevrolet Malibu ready to win the head-to-head competition with perennial favorites like Honda Accord and Toyota Camry? It's a tall order, but the just-introduced Malibu is poised to steal back the popularity it once enjoyed. A renewed emphasis on bold, upscale-looking interior treatments gives it a surprisingly sophisticated appearance. And on the outside, the new design has an athletic look backed up by a handling-oriented suspension and a powerful optional V6. The result may surprise many consumers who have largely written off domestic vehicles.
