The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu, in L, LS, LT, Hybrid and Premier. Standard trims, starts at $22,500 (includes $875 destination charges) for the L model with 10 airbags, cruise control, push-button start with passive entry and fuel-saving stop/start technology on the base 1.5L 4-cylinder engine. The LS model, starting at $23,995, includes standard Chevrolet MyLink Radio with 7-inch diagonal color touch screen. The LT model starts at $25,895 and is projected to offer a General Motors-estimated 27 mpg city and 37 mpg highway, when equipped with the Ecotec 1.5L turbo engine with stop/start. A 2.0L turbo with an 8-speed transmission is available in the LT and Premier models as well, starting at $29,495 and $31,795 respectively. Malibu 2.0T models offer a GM-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 32 on the highway. I just rented the current Malibu model as was very impressed with fuel economy and dash layout which included smartphone storage slots in the middle console for driver and passenger.
