I'm undecided on the taillights..they don't really fit the name "Malibu".

And no V6? Meh. :/

IMO Gm should have just rebadged the G8 and called it something else.

Why do we need a Family car that resembles a Camaro in ways ?


Are we freaking running out of idea's ?

That Malibu with the 300 HP V6 and AWD would be a pretty snazzy ride.
But as now..I see it as a step down from the current version.

Not really liking the tail lights either, but overall I do like the looks of the car. I think the current version is great and they had to go somewhere with the design. Everyone is talking about Camaro design cues but to be honest I see way more Cruze design concepts in it. Either way still one of the best looking 4-doors on the road especially for the price.

2011 Synergy Green Metallic 1SS Camaro:
RS Package, White Ralley Stripes, Premium Sound.
Mods; Flowmaster Exhaust, Vararam CAI, Pfadt Sport Suspension, Budnik "Ice" Wheels, Nitto Invo tires
Upcoming Mods; Custom grill and badging.

I read another article saying the tail lights were a cue taken from the Camaro, but they don't look anything like the Camaro's tail lights.

IMO they kinda resemble the Camaro lights, there's 2 of them on each side and they're close to the same shape except they stick out from the body a lot more.... I think they should have been angled or something..
