We’re not sure whether GM engineers thought that driving a white 2012 Chevrolet Malibu in a snowy white backdrop wouldn’t attract much attention — but as seen from the latest spy photos, that clearly wasn’t the case.
According to reports, the next-generation ‘Bu will be shorter in length without sacrificing cabin space while resembling the similar profile of its platform mate, the Buick Regal (Opel/Vauxhall Insignia). Though we’re not expected to lose any room inside, the shrinkage in dimensions seems to blur the line between the Cruze and Malibu even further.
For a car that’s expected to launch next year, we’re surprised that the ‘Bu hasn’t removed the zebra outfit yet. Hopefully we will see the Epsilon II-based car fully exposed at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, if not New York.
