I don't think it works like that. Your car can function as a hot spot, it can't connect to your phone's hot spot.
At least, I think that's what you're asking.

У моего друга также есть автомобиль Chevrolet Malibu, но в 2018 году он работает, и автомобиль свободно подключается к его телефонному Интернету.

A friend of mine also has a Chevrolet Malibu car, but it works in 2018 and the car connects freely to his phone internet.

Your 2016 Malibu must have wifi equipped and enabled with an active data subscription for your phone to connect to the car wifi. With an active subscription the car becomes an access point or hotspot for other devices to connect to. If the car was tethering to a phone to use that data connection the other devices in the car could just tether to that phone as well - no use for the car as an access point in that scenario.

I don't think anyone has tried that. I don't know if a firmware update or programming update even exists. It won't be something you can program and enable if you don't have it already, you must have the OnStar unit with access point/router.
