Chevrolet Malibu to get Frankfurt debut

The new Chevrolet Malibu will make its European debut at the Frankfurt motor show next month.

The mid-sized family four-door model was unveiled in April this year, and is due to go on sale in Europe during 2012. It will be offered with either a 162bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine or 167bhp 2.4-litre diesel. Each will be available with either a manual or automatic gearbox.

Chevrolet says that a decision on whether the Malibu will go on sale in the UK has not yet been reached. If it does, it will be pitched as a keenly priced rival for the Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia.

More information on the Chevrolet Malibu will be released at the Frankfurt motor show.
