Just a few days ago, we brought you GM’s filings to the US Patent & Trademark Office of what looks to be the 2012 (next-gen) Chevrolet Malibu. From there, GM Authority’s own rendering extraordinaire Hakim Givens took it upon himself to color in the details; what you see above are the results!
Looking at this real-life photo reassures our earlier thoughts that Chevy’s upcoming revision of the Malibu will be very much reminiscent of Ford’s Fusion sedan, with an upright profile and longer overhangs.
But are we the only ones who find the front fascia extremely similar to that of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class? We have all of the patent filings after the break!
