As reported by Next Car on 31st March 2011 Holden’s new medium sedan, the Malibu will replace the Epica. The new car, in Chevrolet guise, has made its debut at China's Shanghai Motor Show.

The reveal, conducted by Chevrolet, saw the veil lifted on the stylish new-generation model that will be sold in up to 100 countries including Australia next year.

To be powered by a range of efficient 4-cylinder engines, Malibu will be highlighted by advanced exterior and interior design, exceptional ride and handling and outstanding safety features according to Holden.

Its exterior design features a wide stance, broad 'shoulders' and an integrated spoiler giving it impressive on-road presence.

Inside, a spacious, dual-cockpit interior is finished with the extensive use of premium materials, including soft-touch and textured surfaces and ice-blue ambient lighting along the centre stack dials, instrument panel and storage pockets.

Malibu will offer the reassurance of a comprehensive range of safety features and has been extensively tested on a wide range of road surfaces and conditions around the world.

Holden Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, John Elsworth said Malibu reflected the same focus on quality and advanced technology as seen in the globally successful Cruze small car.

“Malibu will represent another major step forward in the Holden product offensive when it arrives late next year, filling a gap in our model line-up between our leading Cruze and Commodore models,” Mr. Elsworth said.

“We think it will really hit the mark. From the Camaro-inspired exterior design and sleek interior to the dynamic performance capabilities, it is another great example of the sophistication we’re building into our new-generation global vehicles.”

“We’ll offer high-performing fuel-efficient engines, a high level of safety and a range of features and technologies to appeal to customers in the competitive mid-size segment.”

Holden will release details specific to the Malibu model sold in Australia closer to its local launch in 2012.
