2016 Chevy Malibu Hybrid to Warn Accord Hybrid

Car Junkie - 2016 Malibu Hybrid Fuel Economy. As a fellow of the all-new 2016 Malibu redesign 2016 Malibu Hybrid is likely going to make a surprise, if, its upgrades materialized. What we can spot to the current Malibu Hybrid's EPA ratings are simply stuck in 25 mpg/city 37/hwy - and that's the key point to improve. Chevrolet put a hope to its new Hybrid version to reach around 48 mpg/city 45/hwy, and 47 in compound despite it's unverified yet. Interestingly, if that refinement really becomes true, the 2016 Hybrid from Chevy will set up a new stage in the mid-size Hybrid segment - in which other players like Camry, Fusion and Sonata should be concerned.

The 2016 Malibu Hybrid is said to adopt 1.8L 4-cylinder direct-injection to join the Volt's slightly modified double-motor as the new drivetrain. It's estimated to generate 182-hp if both engines go conjunctly. Also, the next-generation Malibu Hybrid will feature a new EGHR (Exhaust Gas Heat Recovery) technology to help the engine during warming-up by effectively heating the cabin faster, especially in cold weather. The system is engineered to keep the fuel consumption more stable as well.

For the battery pack Malibu is likely to adopt a 80-cell (1.5-kWh) lithium ion. The battery pack, as its Hybrid power, approximately can hit up to 88 kilometers per hour or 55 mph going independently with the electric power. While the gasoline engine mechanically offers a higher speed.

Cutting up to 300 pounds down the 2016 Chevy Malibu is surely lighter than the current versions. The body size, however, is interestingly longer. Chevy has decided to repackage the Malibu's body structure, specially on the rear parts by adding more legroom for passengers as the significant changes.

It's kind of smart to assume that Chevrolet is actually pointing to the Accord Hybrid to bring in its Malibu Hybrid onto a head-to-head board - and it will be really happening if all of Chevy's numeral projections come into being. After all, new homework for the company might be how to drive buyers spontaneously think of its Malibu Hybrid. The car is scheduled to go on sale sometime this year and we now have just to wait for EPA's word and finally the pricing.
