With just a hint of Acura TL in its haunches, the 2008 Malibu is an altogether more graceful-looking thing than the car it replaces.
Chevrolet wasn't as stingy with the shiny trim as it was on the outgoing model. One hopes that the company can resist putting a wing on the trunk lid.
Even the license plate surround gets a little shiny love. This LT four-cylinder model has a single tailpipe. Malibus equipped with the V6 will have dual chrome-tipped pipes.
The nose of the 2008 Malibu is more deeply sculpted than that of the outgoing Malibu, which looked as if it were constructed of Lego blocks.
We're going to take a wild guess here and say that GM refers to this two-tone interior as Titanium and Cashmere.
Behold, the single-tone Ebony interior with satin-****************l-look trim. This is as sporty-looking as a Malibu interior has ever been.
For those who simply must have it, chevrolet will offer wood grain trim.
