PostHeaderIcon 10 Best Used Cars For New Drivers

While most modern cars pack in the safety features and offer plenty of value-per-dollar, there are some out there that seem to stand above the rest. If you’re scouring the used market looking for just the right ride for your new driver, fear not, as we’ve put together a list that outlines ten models that are just a few years old, but still come with just about everything you could want.

Each entry also includes a rundown on crashworthiness, as tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, or IIHS, a U.S.-based non-profit organization that conducts research on almost all new cars.

So with that, read on for our list of the ten best-used cars for new drivers.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Malibu Redline Edition

Chevrolet launched the ninth-generation Malibu in 2015, discontinuing the previous model after only five years on the market. Redesigned from the ground up and bolted onto a new platform (E2XX), the new Malibu also gained three new drivetrains, including a 1.5-liter four-cylinder and a 1.8-liter hybrid. In 2017, Chevrolet launched the Redline Edition, a limited-edition model based on the Malibu LT trim, at the Chicago Auto Show.

The first special-edition to provide some customization for the new Malibu, the Redline Edition isn’t actually new. The package was first showcased at the 2015 SEMA Show, where it was displayed as the Red Line Series concept. At last year’s edition of the same show, Chevy rolled out a similar concept, this time around called the Malibu Blue Line and fitted with blue accents instead of red.

The production Redline Edition follows in the footsteps of the Red Line Series concept, featuring similar enhancements on the outside. Although not all elements seen on the concept were retained for production, the blacked-out details and the red accents are still there.

“Redline is another example of Chevrolet bringing SEMA concepts to showrooms,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet. “The SEMA show has proven to be a great way to identify customization trends in the industry, and quickly apply those trends to our most popular Chevrolet models. Based on the strong interest Redline attracted at the show, we believe they will be very popular with customers looking for standout cars, trucks, and crossovers.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Unveils Nine Redline Editions in Chicago

Chevrolet is taking the 2017 Chicago Auto Show by storm with no fewer than the nine cars under the Redline special-edition badge. First shown in concept form at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the Redline package found its way on nine cars, trucks, and crossovers.

The vehicles that benefit from the bundle and are on display in Chicago are the Cruze LT, Malibu LT, Camaro LT and SS, Trax LT, Equinox LT, Traverse Premier, Colorado LT, Silverado Double Cab LT Z71, and Silverado Crew Cab LTZ Z71. The Cruze LT Redline is available in both sedan and hatchback versions, while the Camaro LT/SS Redline can be had both coupe and convertible body styles.

“Redline is another example of Chevrolet bringing SEMA concepts to showrooms,” said Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet. “The SEMA show has proven to be a great way to identify customization trends in the industry, and quickly apply those trends to our most popular Chevrolet models. Based on the strong interest Redline attracted at the show, we believe they will be very popular with customers looking for standout cars, trucks, and crossovers.”

All Redline models are fitted with black wheels with distinct red hash marks, black nameplates with a red outline, blacked-out grilles, and black Chevrolet “bowtie” logos. Customers can also opt for red tow hooks on Silverado and Colorado trucks and unique black hash marks above the front wheels on Camaro pony cars.

The Silverado Redline is already available for purchase, but you’ll have to wait a while longer for the rest of the lineup to become available. Chevrolet says that all Redline cars will be dealerships by the end of the 2017 calendar year. Pricing information is not yet available.

PostHeaderIcon Chevy's New Nine-Speed Transmission is Controlled by… An Original PlayStation?

Okay, so color me guilty for being slightly misleading with my title. No matter how hard you look you won’t find an original PlayStation console hidden away somewhere in any vehicle with the new nine-speed transmission, but it does use similar technology. In a world where cars come with hard drives, hot spots, and digital, touchscreen displays, among other large doses of modern technology, you might find it mildly entertaining to know that not everything is as modern as you might think. I’m talking about the transmission control module for the new nine-speed transmission. It seems like cars these days might as well be rolling supercomputers, but GM’s new gearbox just so happens to use a 32-bit control module. That’s the same rating as the original PlayStation console, Sega Saturn, and Atari Jaguar from the early 1990s! It doesn’t sound like much compared to the technology we find in cars these days, does it?

Surprisingly, that’s really all it takes, and GM says that the new, nine-speed transmission, with the help of its 32-bit control module, can offer “excellent off-the-line acceleration” and low-rpm highway cruising. It also supports stop/start technology for fuel savings, smooth and precise shifts, and can utilize engine braking to help prevent the need for braking during hill descent. The hydraulic system inside the transmission is controlled electronically, with the valve body cover acting as an internal expansion tank that holds excess fluid until it’s needed for shifting duties. The 9T50 transmission is also said to come with DEXRON-VI transmission fluid that, according to GM, doesn’t require changing if the car is always operated under “normal” driving conditions.

“Everything about the new nine-speed is designed to maximize benefits for the customer,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet Marketing. “It helps offer greater fuel efficiency in the city and on the highway, all with the world-class refinement that makes the drive quiet and smooth.”

The new transmission will make its debut in the 2017 Chevy Malibu and will also be available as an option in the 2017 Chevy Cruze Diesel and the 2018 Chevy Equinox. By the end of 2017, it will be available as an option on as many as 10 models.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Malibu Blue Line

Redesigned for the 2016 model year, the Malibu became a better looking and more upscale sedan. Aimed at the very popular Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, the overhauled sedan also received new engines with enhanced fuel economy, winning two extra mpgs with the optional, turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. Now with a sportier appearance and a high-tech interior with increased space, the Malibu continues to enjoy the success of its predecessor, while bringing new customers into Chevrolet showrooms.

At the 2016 SEMA Show, GM is showcasing a new concept car based on the existing Malibu. Dubbed Blue Line, the show car is actually a production model fitted with Chevrolet Performance parts inside and out. Most new features are newly designed and not yet available to customers, but Chevy will probably have them on sale starting in 2017. The Malibu Blue Line joins a similar concept based on the Cruze RS hatchback at the SEMA Show and previews some of the accessories that customers will be able to purchase in the future.

“The Chevrolet Blue Line Series concepts integrate accessories that offer greater personalization choices for customers,” said Roger McCormack, director of Accessories and Performance Parts Marketing. “Each vehicle wears production and concept accessories thematically linked under the Blue Line Series banner. We look forward to gauging public reaction at the SEMA Show and other venues.”

There’s no word as to whether Chevrolet is planning a sportier version of the Malibu, but it could happen in the near future. Until then, let’s have a closer look at the Blue Line concept.

PostHeaderIcon SEMA Preview: Chevrolet Malibu Red Line

Chevrolet Malibu Red Line-1

Besides the new Camaro, Chevrolet’s Red Line concepts for this year’s SEMA show extends to the Malibu family sedan as well, giving the four-door sedan a fresh new look and a lot more attitude. Chevrolet Malibu Red Line is quite possibly the coolest version of this car that has ever existed.

So let’s get to it and see what makes this Chevrolet Malibu Red Line special and SEMA worthy. There aren’t any performance upgrades, sadly, but Chevy has done a great deal to make the car more visually appealing.

The main highlights of Chevrolet Malibu Red Line include Satin Graphite window molding accent, badges in gloss black with red accent, red fog lamp bezels, tinted taillamp lenses and windows, and Black mirror caps. The more important upgrades include a set of 19-inch wheels with custom red accents, Chevrolet Performance concept suspension lowering kit, and Chevrolet Accessories concept black bowtie kit, rear spoiler, hash mark graphics, grille surround and inserts.

Malibu Red Line also benefits from a few useful accessories such as Roof rack by Thule with mounted skis and snowboard and floor liners, cargo mat and sport pedal kit. The production accessories will be available as the 2016 models arrive in dealer showrooms.

PostHeaderIcon Mark Reuss Talks About GM's Direction

GM executive vice president Mark Reuss recently discussed some of automaker’s plans for the future, including Cadillac’s focus, Chevrolet’s outlook, and even the future of the Buick Avenir.

In a discussion with reporters at the NYAS, Ruess said he didn’t want Cadillac to try to “out-German the Germans,” but rather concentrate on reaching a younger generation. “There’s an opportunity there for those people to drive something different than what their parents did.”

What makes Cadillac different? Reuss thinks it’s “…probably different value equation, probably different powertrain equation, probably different styling equation, that’s very American. And not syrupy retro.”

“We’ve got an ATS-V that’s going to flame the M3 and M4,” Reuss continued, “and then we’ve got a CTS-V that’s a 200-mile-an-hour hammer. Those are credibility punctuations.”

Reuss also said he was open to a Cadillac sports car, but that GM was “…trying to fill in as a priority the Cadillac entries that we don’t have in the marketplace on a volume and profit basis first.”

Regarding the new Chevy Volt, Reuss said that the toned-down exterior aesthetic was a response to market demands, adding that the last model didn’t sell due to a design that looked a bit like a “science experiment.”

Reuss was also supportive of a production version of the Buick Avenir concept, if vaguely: “It was such a hit, what would it look like in production, what would it cost to do it. So that’s where we’re at.”

PostHeaderIcon 2016 Chevrolet Malibu To Feature Teen Driver System

Most of us were at one point teen drivers that wanted to go faster than our skill and experience enabled us to. And while we’ve grown to become experienced drivers, youngsters are still tempted to hammer it for a bit of adrenaline, sometimes unwisely. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety cites that the ages of 16 to 19 years are statistically the most dangerous by far. Fortunately for parents who want to coach teenagers on how to learn safe diving skills, GM has come up with a system that supports safe driving habits even when tutors are not in the car. It’s called Teen Driver and it’s set to debut in the 2016 Malibu.

A first in the industry according to Chevy, Teen Driver is a built-in system that lets parents view how their teenager drove the vehicle by tracking car data. Parents can view the data on the car’s display and decide whether their teenagers need more tutoring or not. But how does it work?

PostHeaderIcon 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Teased Again: Video

Having unveiled a shadowy teaser photo of the Malibu’s profile a week ago, Chevrolet continues to build the hype ahead of the sedan’s official unveiling with a 49-second video. The footage showcases the harsh validation and development tests the new Malibu has been put through, including spending several hours in GM’s Climatic Wind Tunnel, where temperatures can be raised to 140 degrees or lowered to 40 degrees below zero F.

The sedan also endured road durability and suspension tests and all kinds of simulated abuse, including repeated door, hood and trunk-lid slams, and more than 1.5 million miles of driving in controlled environments and on open roads. All told, Chevy says the 2016 Malibu is one tough cookie and claims it will be more dependable and durable than its rivals.

Unfortunately, the company isn’t yet willing to let us have a look at the new sedan. The vehicle in the video is camouflaged. The good news, however, is that the 2016 Malibu is slated to break cover at the 2015 New York Auto Show on April 1st, a little more than two weeks from now. Stick around, more teasers are likely to follow. Hopefully, the Malibu will show some skin before NYIAS begins.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Malibu

GM’s decision to overhaul the Malibu just a little more than three years since the current model debuted is not at all surprising. With competitors like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord or the Ford Fusion around, the eighth-gen Malibu has been struggling sales-wise ever since it arrived into dealerships in 2012. Chevy hopes that will come to an end with the larger and sportier 2016 Malibu that just made its public debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show.

The beginnings of the Malibu name are tied to that of the Chevrolet Chevelle. That’s because the Malibu was a range-topping trim level of the Chevelle from 1964 to 1977. Featuring added luxury and the same powerful V-8s as the Chevelle, the Malibu went on to become the best-selling badge in the lineup by 1978, when it received its own model line. Although dropped in 1983, the moniker returned in 1997 and soldiered on through 2012, when the eighth-generation model was launched on GM’s Epsilon II platform, shared with the Buick LaCrosse and Regal. The new Malibu became a global vehicle, receiving a range of four-cylinder and V-6 engines, as well as three transmissions choices.

With the 2016 model, Chevrolet aims to turn the Malibu into a more upscale model, as well as a more efficient alternative to segment leaders from Toyota and Honda. Keep reading to find out if GM’s new midsize sedan stands a chance against its main competitors in the U.S.

Updated 12/10/2015: Chevrolet announced that the 2016 Malibu Hybrid LT will arrive at U.S. dealers in the spring of 2016 with a starting price of $28,645. General Motors estimates that the car will deliver 48 mpg city, 45 mpg highway and 47 mpg combined making it the best in the midsize car segment.
