Mzodarg I love that flush spoiler. Is that after market?

Also, I will say that I can breathe easily now knowing what the refresh will eventually look like. I noticed from the leaked pictures that the back will remain the same. I just dont think the back and the new front will mesh well together. Needless to say I won't be waiting in line for a trade-in.

I think the 2014 impala and 2015 cruze will devour the malibu sales anyways no matter what they do with this cars current wheel base.

Re: Here's the 2014 Malibu

The outside looks pretty nice on the Impala. I like the Malibu interior better though.
The steering wheel on the Impala is especially ugly.


Malo83 you don't think the front of the Impala resembles the Camaro a little?

Re: Here's the 2014 Malibu

agreed the interior is straight up ugly for the new impala that guaranteed that I would not trade in for it. The malibu's cabin just has a future-esque decor to it that some hate but I love. Some people say it feels like they are in a lounge when they ride in my car because of the ambient lighting.

I think the 2015 Impala will replace the steering wheel and styling a bit because it brings down the car. Eventually reviews will mention this when it is released. It feels dated.

Re: Here's the 2014 Malibu

I think when the new Chevy SS hits the showrooms, the Impala and Malibu both may be in trouble. Should be an awesome car, and, fun to drive. 414 HP, oh yeah.......

The SS is going to cost somewhere around 38k - 40k, it's not going to be stealing much business from either.

We shall see this fall. People are paying close to $30,000 for a Malibu. Twice the car for another $8,000 would get my business any day.
