Is this the car to take over from Impala?

OK. Here is my rendering of the profile drawing of what we think will be the next Malibu as taken from GM Patent Filings...
Given this Malibu will be larger inside that the current one and on EPII short do you think it will become Chevrolet's volume selling family car and displace the Impala in sales volume? This would leave Impala to move up market to a more niche position perhaps as a RWD with the Malibu being the FWD option.
It's possible the side crease line is subtler like this, with the side rubbing strip being the dominant line.
