Default 2008 Chevrolet malibu- The new face of Chevrolet

Would I move over from the camry's and the accord's to the Malibu not so sure but anyway's heres the 2008 Chevrolet Malibu.





Quote:
Compared to the 2007 model, the new Malibu is more than three inches (76 mm) longer, with a six-inch-longer (162 mm) wheelbase

Highlights of the 2008 Malibu design include the all-new contemporary exterior with new dual-port grille design that represents the new face of Chevrolet and twin round taillamps. The interior features two-tone trim and gauges with blue backlighting.

The Malibu adopts a family of DOHC powertrains, including a 2.4L Ecotec DOHC four-cylinder and a 3.6L DOHC V-6 with variable valve timing.

Like I said in another thread (Detroit auto show one) , I find the new "face" of Chevrolet to be a bit..ho hum..to say the least. There is also no manual transmission being offered on the V6.
Its badge engineered cousin, the Aura, looks much better. Only grouse I have with it is the 3.5L OHV engine that forms its base variant.
Which ofcourse, means fleet sales >> family sales.
