Spot on. But, I disagree with the previous Gen Malibu being "bland" as he called it. I don't know why but, in the interior shots that damn cheap looking wood grain stuck out at me like a sore thumb.....
Interesting review. I'm a little worried about the rear seat comfort but everything else seemed good.

wow!! I want! GM really did a nice job on this car, I hope it does well!
Typical of any mid size sedan.
Rear leg room is never there is your driver is 6 feet..
I hope a spark can allow malibu to carry a V6
He didn't call the whole car bland.
Yeah, people are right. The new Malibu looks more masculine. It looks like it wants to flex its muscles and ejaculate on the floor. I think this is more like a "pre-view" than a "review" but it's OK. It's a good thing they test rear seat room. He could have lifted the trunk as well though.
The Opel Astra and VW Scirocco need to be in North America.

If anything the 2013 looks more bland from the side view compared to the 2008-2012. It's the rear end that looks better IMO on the new car. The interior also looks more upscale on the 2013 even with all the whining about the wood grain.
I've never been a fan of the rear half of the current Malibu. The rear end is indeed bland even though the car in general looks good especially in the LTZ trim.

The rear end of the current 'Bu looks bland and unfinished; same goes for the front fascia to a lesser extent.
The front and rear of the new 'Bu are a nice improvement; otoh, the new greenhouse is step back - looks bland and a bit too Camryish.
As for legroom - TTAC just did a comparison.
http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/201...dans/#commentsCombined legroom (the sum of official front and rear legroom numbers) for the “big six” midsize sedans are as follows:
Hyundai Sonata: 80.1 inches
Toyota Camry: 80 inches
Nissan Altima: 79.9 inches
Chevrolet Malibu: 79.8 inches
Honda Accord: 79.7 inches
Ford Fusion: 79.4 inches
Not much diff. here except for maybe the Fusion, but Ford models of late tend to be on the smaller side interior room-wise.
