You have many options of sedans to choose from when you go new car shopping. Four-door cars are as much of a part of American automotive history as tires, wheels, or engines. But not all sedans are created equally. Some have more practical advantages but offer less in terms of design or personality. For others, it is the opposite. You may also find sedans with yesterday's technology, or others that have crammed too many features into one place, taking away all semblances of style or convenience. Then there are those sedans that are perfectly balanced, offering equal amounts of comfortable yet eye-catching design traits, new technologies, and practical features. The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Sedan is one of these cars.

The new Malibu has the right fusion of today's styles with timeless qualities of luxury and practicality.
