Holden has today confirmed the model line-up and pricing for the all-new mid-size Holden Malibu.
Arriving in Australian car showrooms this month, Holden Malibu combines sharp exterior styling with a highly-specified interior and technology package with Holden's innovative new MyLink infotainment system standard on all models.
Available in two trim levels, CD and CDX, with either a 2.4 litre DOHC petrol engine or optional 2.0 litre common rail turbo diesel, all Malibu models feature a standard six-speed automatic transmission with Active Select.
Holden Executive Director Sales and Marketing, Philip Brook, said Holden Malibu was entering the market at a crucial time for Holden.
"Today's launch sees Holden deliver three fantastic new cars in the important small, medium and large car segments in the first half of this year," he said.
"With our engineering and technology advances Cruze has been critically acclaimed and VF Commodore, the most technologically-advanced car ever created in Australia, will also hit showrooms this month.
"Both Cruze and Commodore are strong performers for Holden, but it's been over 5 years since we had a new entrant in the medium size segment.
"When Malibu goes on sale, it completes the revitalisation of our sedan range and has us poised for real sales growth in the second half of the year."
Malibu will be offered in two highly-specified trim levels, CD and CDX.
"Consistent with the recent introduction of the updated Holden Cruze and VF Commodore models, Malibu offers a long list of premium and technology features as standard on both trim levels," Mr Brook said.
"We know drivers are looking for more today, and Malibu delivers with standard features including a large seven-inch colour touchscreen with MyLink app-enabled infotainment system and driver assistance technologies including reverse camera, rear park assist, sensor key technology and push button start."
In addition, Holden Malibu CD features 17-inch alloy wheels, steering wheel audio controls, BluetoothTM, cruise control, auto headlamps, power height adjusted seats and electric park brake.
Malibu CDX steps up to 18-inch alloy wheels, adds leather appointed heated front seats with eight-way power adjustments, leather steering wheel, rain sensing wipers and dual zone climate control.
