For a car enthusiast, the chance to buy a new car and the period of shopping for one is often a time of excitement, discovery, and joy. Finding a new car is almost a disappointment, as it means that the search is over. There will be no more test driving beautiful motor vehicles, no more leisurely browses of car dealerships. For many car lovers and enthusiasts, finding the right vehicle is truly a bittersweet moment. The 2018 Chevy Malibu, for a number of reasons, makes it all worth it.
It’s Truly Gorgeous
For its latest edition, the Chevy Malibu has been released in more colors than ever before, with a new special edition color, Sandy Ridge Metallic. Other popular colors choices for the 2018 Chevy Malibu include a Cajun Red tintcoat, Summit White, and Pepperdust Metallic, an unusual shade that makes you take a second look, among various other colors and tint coats. This means the 2018 Chevy Malibu has a high degree of customization, allowing the new owner to truly make their new Chevy Malibu their own, a car set apart from others. If you want to make your Chevy Malibu especially unique and aesthetically pleasing, many Chevrolet dealerships will include the option to purchase bowtie emblems to adorn both the back and front of the car.
The interior of the car is aesthetically pleasing to many prospective buyers as well, with cloth seats that can easily be upgraded to leather ones, as well as a spacious back seat, roomy enough for two adults (or three children, if you happen to be part of your neighborhood’s carpool system). The steering wheel is perhaps the most luxurious aspect, covered in high-quality leather and heated, an ideal amenity for cold winter mornings. There are a number of color choices for the interior of the car as well, from dark brown to a deep black, allowing an even greater freedom of customization.
The Amenities Offered Are Plentiful
For those not sold on the interior, the amenities offered (either as standard features or optional extras) will often seal the deal. Let’s start with the basics: heated seats. Heated seats are common throughout most recent cars, but they are no less useful. Heated seats can make or break the decision to purchase a car, especially for those living in parts of the country that experience brutal winters and unforgiving cold. With the addition of the heated steering wheel, those winters will seem easier to face and the once icy morning commute less daunting and dreaded.
The 2018 Chevy Malibu is the ideal car for music enthusiasts as well as early morning commuters (and the perfect car for those that are both), with a six-speaker audio system. It’s the perfect car for families as well, as it comes equipped with a rear seat reminder, perfect for tired parents dropping their babies, toddlers, and preschoolers off at daycare. Though none of us think that we’ll forget a child, it could happen to anyone, especially in the exhausting days of new parenthood.
While these amenities are standard, there are optional extras available at a relatively small increased cost, such as a nine-speaker audio system (by Bose) and a WiFi hotspot, making traveling long distances all that much more bearable (particularly if you are traveling with young children or teenagers, who often feel that they need a good WiFi connection as much as they need water).
It’s Got Safety Features Ideal For Any Driver and Family
Whether or not you have children, the safety of any car is key. Fortunately, the 2018 Chevy Malibu has safety features to satisfy even the most protective of parents. One of the optional extras available for the Chevy Malibu is a rearview camera, making backing out easier for even the new driver.
Parents of teens will be thrilled to hear that the Chevy Malibu comes with settings to help teen drivers manage speed and audio while newly on the road, referred to as Teen Driver settings. A package of optional extras ideal for the new driver or really any driver includes front collision warnings, low-speed front automatic braking, pedestrian front braking, and automatic high beams, making even driving in severe weather or at night as safe as possible. This package also contains parking sensors, ideal for the driver that struggles to gain confidence with parking (common among teen and new drivers) and blind spot monitoring, as well as lane keeping assist and rear cross traffic alert. This hefty safety package will make even the most anxious of drivers feel safe on the road, no matter what the circumstances outside of the car. In fact, this driver confidence package is so adept and thorough that the Chevy Malibu has been named as the 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick, though only when the driver confidence package is included in the purchase of the car. It has also been referred to as the most dependable midsize car, perfect for small families.
Why You Should Consider the 2018 Chevy Malibu
The Chevy Malibu is the ideal car for a number of reasons, from an exemplary safety system to state of the art amenities as well as a comfortable, luxurious interior (particularly if you opt for leather seats instead of cloth ones). However, at the end of the day, it’s all about how the car feels to you and how much you like driving it, as well as how well it suits your needs. This is why it’s important to see the Chevy Malibu at a car dealership near you. You’ll be able to see all of its amenities up close and personal and, more importantly, have a chance to take out on the roads for a test drive. No matter how good it may sound, you won’t truly know if it’s the car for you until you see how the steering wheel feels under your hands, how the wheels feel on the road, and how much you love driving it.
