What's New For the 2021 Chevrolet Malibu?

Although the Malibu was first introduced in 1964, it remains one of the most popular nameplates on the market today. Malibu has gracefully aged over time, introducing new technology and style over the years to stay up-to-date with current trends and consumer demands. Not surprisingly, the 2021 Malibu adds some new features to give drivers the freshest options for amenities and conveniences. The Chevy Malibu adds wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for its technology features this year. It also has a new special edition package called the Sport Edition that gives the Malibu a more athletic appearance and adds black accents to its exterior. The Malibu also stands out for its comfortable cabin and available turbo engine for enhanced power.

The Malibu Has Many Features Across Several Trims

The 2021 Chevy Malibu is made in five trim levels. The first trim is the L. The second is the LS, followed by the RS, the LT, and the top trim called the Premier. All five trim levels of the Malibu seat five people. For convenience and comfort, the base trim level includes an eight-inch touchscreen interface and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It also has a six-speaker stereo system. Cruise control is a standard amenity, along with the keyless entry.


The LS adds some more safety aids and a 4G WiFi hotspot. The RS has more distinctive exterior elements, including a dual exhaust system, body-colored mirrors on the outside, a black grille, and a rear spoiler. It also upgrades to 18-inch wheels. The interior has some additional luxury touches, including a leather steering wheel and leather-wrapped gear shift knob. The LT trim has a satellite radio, heated front seats, and dual-zone climate control. Larger 19-inch wheels come with the Premier trim, which also has a more powerful engine, heated seats, and wireless device charging.
