Hybrid technology has advanced far beyond the initial experiments, and car buyers are starting to consider a hybrid sedan as a car that they want to put in their garage. If you’re deciding to take the leap to hybrid technology look no further than the Chevrolet Malibu Eco, a full size hybrid sedan that combines great fuel mileage with luxury.
Let’s take a look at why the next time you stop by David Stanley Chevrolet, you should consider a test drive in this great hybrid car.
Chevrolet Malibu Eco: Fuel Mileage
If you’re looking for a car that will save you from some pain at the pump, the Malibu Eco is the best hybrid sedan for you. The Chevy Malibu Eco is not a traditional “hybrid.” Rather, the sedan is powered by a gasoline engine that is assisted by a 15 hp electric motor. Simply put, the electric motor “helps” the gasoline engine so that less gas is used.
What’s the result? The Malibu Eco gives you 182 horsepower with 26 mpg while driving in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. That should take some pain out of visiting the pump.
Chevrolet Malibu Eco: Performance
What you may find lacking in terms of sheer power is made up for with the quality of your experience and comfort while driving the Malibu Eco. This sedan offers a very spacious interior and a quiet, comfortable ride. A variety of the latest tech options are available including a navigation screen that conveniently flips up to reveal in-dash storage.
The Malibu Eco also features electrically assisted steering, but you won’t notice the difference with extremely smooth handling. Also, though you won’t notice any change in the braking, the Malibu’s brakes charge the electric battery powering the eAssist motor.
Chevrolet Malibu Eco: Cost
At a price of $26,460, the Malibu Eco is more affordable than a lot of other hybrid vehicles in the market. With a David Stanley guaranteed low price and great gas mileage, the savings you’ll get from purchasing the Chevrolet Malibu Eco will be impressive.
