2008 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid Preview
Chevy steps deeper into the land of the affordable mainstream hybrid
What it Is
2008 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid Preview – 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show: Sometimes the little steps are just as important as giant leaps, or at least that’s the logic one needs to believe when considering the 2008 Chevrolet Malibu. Offering an insignificant gain of two mpg, the Malibu Hybrid doesn’t match the Prius on the green scale and, in fact, can be bettered by many regular small and midsize alternatives. But this restyled Chevy sedan blends lower emissions and improved fuel economy with a stylish, comfortable, and affordable package, making this a hybrid the masses might buy because of what it is and not what it represents.
