Family sedan and Chevrolet Malibu
It seems that Toyota is making a move to engage with the younger demographic with the launch of the 2016 iM hatchback and the iA sedan. They are also pricing these models for the budget conscience consumer. The subcompact iA is price from $16,495, while the larger iM will start at around $19,255. The iA comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission. However, for those who would prefer an automatic this can be done for an additional charge of around $1,000.
Chevy decided to give the classic Malibu a major facelift with the 2016 Hybrid model. Car accidents and the safety of a vehicle is always a top concern for any consumer. This is why the new Malibu will include advanced safety technology, 4g LTE Wi-Fi, better fuel efficiency (around 48 mpg city), and a sleek new look.
2016 Chevrolet Volt
This is quite different from the previous or existing model due to its increased performance coupled with a sleeker style. It has greater comfort, safety and convenience all with a competitive price point. With the general problem of gasoline and fuel problem worldwide, there is likely to be increased demand in electric-oriented cars. The electric Volt boasts an expected 1,000 miles between fill ups. It also has an electric range of around 53 pure electric miles. The advanced technology that is being used in this model may put it as one of the leaders in the hybrid category.
