Chevy Malibu Wagon Rendered With Long-Roof Sexiness

The Chevy Malibu is one of the last remaining sedan models in General Motors’ 2021 model year lineup, with the Cadillac CT4 and Cadillac CT5 rounding out the automaker’s ever-dwindling four-door offerings. Indeed, with U.S. consumers’ seemingly insatiable demand for crossovers and SUVs, the Malibu’s future is uncertain. Nevertheless, some automotive fans remain devoted to the more traditional body styles, such as sedans and wagons. As such, we rendered up the following Chevy Malibu wagon just for those folks.

Before we get into this, it bears mentioning that there is currently no indication that General Motors will produce a new Chevy Malibu wagon. Rather, we did this rendering just for fun, and to see what such a creation could look like.

Indeed, with nine generations of history to back it, there is definitely a precedent for offering a Chevy Malibu wagon. Now, with this exclusive GM Authority rendering, there’s a styling argument to be made as well.

Mating the latest front-fascia styling with an extended roof design, our Chevy Malibu wagon looks good. The classy, yet aggressive headlamps and grille section pull the eye rearwards along small styling lines in the hood that lead to angled A-pillars.

The profile view gives us a look at our Chevy Malibu wagon’s upward slanting window line, providing a visual rake that adds further sporty undertones. Large, silver wheels occupy the corners, providing a nice complement to the Burgundy paint.

The rear view finishes things off with a squared hatch section that adds flat, chiseled lines below a rectangular slab of glass. The long roof terminates with a spoiler and shark fin antenna, while the tail lamps narrow towards the center of the hatch, pointing to the license plate holder. Finally, a set of integrated exhaust tips are found in the flat-black lower bumper treatment.

While we’d obviously love to see our Chevy Malibu wagon hit production, we want to know – do you agree? Let us know your thoughts by voting in the poll below, and make sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more Chevrolet Malibu news, Chevrolet news, and around-the-clock GM news coverage.

  • Rwd based ... now if it was offered as a el Camino bet it would sale about $ 30-35k but Chevy needs better looking grille

  • Absolutely sign me up and make it an SS version AWD! I had the HHR SS and kick myself in the butt for letting it go. I saw it last spring and it was nice to see that the girl that bought it still had it looking showroom new.

  • All I can say is, if they don't do an TRUE SS AWD version, they are the absolute worst in forward thinking. PS Panoramic roof!

  • You Americans are funny. You killed the last touring aka wagon available, the Cadillac CTS SW. Now you want the auto mfrs to bring them back.

  • We hate SUV's in our family, so my ride is a TSX Sport Wagon. My wife got the Buick in June, one of the last new ones around, love the wagons!

  • Alright, let's get serious. Make this wagon with three available options. All wheel drive, a V8, and everybody sit down, how about a manual transmission. That's a lot to consider, but i think it could work.

  • The readers clearly indicate that the car is wanted. But yes, make it AWD. Pontiac knew how to do that. Chev has bad attitude on the subject.

  • Just don't put the black plastic cladding around the wheel wells, Even Mercedes wagons are getting the cheap look of cladding.
