The dual cockpit with sports sculpted seats creates an intimate driving feel that blends into the roomy interior. The premium soft-touch materials, low-gloss surfaces and cool ice blue instrument lighting further add to the feeling of refinement.

No detail overlooked
Aside from striking style, Malibu also wields design with purpose. Aerodynamic details guide airflow seamlessly around the vehicle body to help increase fuel efficiency by decreasing resistance. The aero-optimised rounded corners, tail lamps and side mirrors allow the vehicle to effortlessly slice through the air.

In a segment where some cars are 'vanilla', the all-new Holden Malibu stands-out with Chevrolet Camaro-inspired looks and a dynamic on-road presence...
Malibu boasts a long list of technology features available as standard across the range. From the mobile technology that puts control and convenience in the palm of your hand, to the reverse camera to help you stay on the right path, Malibu is designed with your comfort and convenience in mind.
Standard across the range, Rear Parking Assist has audible sensors that deliver warning tones whenever your vehicle is in proximity of potential objects.
Rear View Camera
Standard across the range, the Rear View Camera provides all the help you could need to reverse into tight spots and acts as a great preventative safety feature, displaying what is behind the car on the 7" colour touch-screen.
PASSIVE ENTRY / PUSH BUTTON START
Take convenience to the next level with Passive Entry and Start available standard across the range. This allows you to unlock and lock your car and start the engine without ever touching the keys.
The auto headlights will automatically switch on at dusk or low light. 'Follow me home' lighting allows the driver to program the front headlights to remain on for up to three minutes after exit and locking of the vehicle.
DUAL ZONE CLIMATE CONTROL*
Travel in custom comfort with dual-zone climate control. Settings are shown on the touch-screen and individual controls for driver and front passenger allowing each to select a preferred temperature.
ELECTRIC PARK BRAKE
The highly intuitive Electric Park Brake will automatically and smoothly disengage on take-off.
RAIN SENSING WIPERS*
When water is detected on the windscreen, rain sensing wipers are automatically activated, allowing you to keep your hands on the wheel.
BLIND SPOT ALERT*
Second guessing lane changes are a thing of the past with Blind Spot Alert. Radars mounted to either side of the Malibu constantly monitor its blind spots for approaching traffic. When an encroaching vehicle is detected a warning light appears on the corresponding side mirror.
REVERSE TRAFFIC ALERT*
Reverse Traffic Alert intuitively scans for adjacent approaching traffic when reversing from a car space, if a potential accident is detected the driver is alerted via the MyLink touchscreen.
Smooth responsive performance The spirited 2.4L 4-cylinder petrol engine provides linear delivery of torque, with near-peak levels over a broad range of revs. Fast to respond, yet slow to 'empty', it makes long journeys a real joy.

Malibu in the news...

A mid-sized Holden that's finally more than just mediocre.
Holden ... contributions to the design, suspension set-up and transmission calibration of the car have enabled it to offer a higher level of refinement than most medium-sedan buyers expect. So move over Mazda6.
Holden has played its part in ensuring the Malibu drives to suit Australia's conditions, and its ride quality is good, coping well over most surfaces. The steering is nicely weighted and it corners well. It's impressively quiet as well.
The Holden Malibu does a lot of things well. It drives efficiently, has mature sporting looks inside and out, boasts good interior space and a long list of features. It's a capable and likeable all-rounder.
Both cars are surprisingly quiet and free of wind and road noise up to and a bit beyond legal speed limits. The big surprise is that the diesel engine itself has quietness levels just not expected in a sub-$60,000 sedan.
