2019 Chevrolet Malibu

The 2019 Malibu isn't the weirdest thing on this picture. (And the others over HERE)
It looks like the usual mid-cycle refresh where all plastic parts are new. Bumpers, grille, lights etc...

But they were testing these cars in Spain. Where the Malibu is NOT sold. With German plates.
Also where the Malibu is NOT sold.
Why???

Also. What is that SUV in the background??
It wears similar camouflage, so that would mean GM. But again, in Europe where GM isn't in business anymore since they sold Opel to Peugeot.

Why testing the Malibu in Europe?
What is that mystery SUV?

What do you think???

Don't you hate not knowing what is going on???

GM should give up on the Malibu. I have seen the latest model about 10 times in the last year and I think all of them were rentals. The Camry and Accord will always have their followers but I think the days of a Malibu having loyal owners has come to an end.

And GG plates are from Rüsselsheim am Main, where the Opel headquarters are located...

Unless they plan to burst back into Europe with the Malibu and Acadia (my guess as to the mystery SUV), they're probably gearing up to add those models to the Chinese market.

As said, GG number plates are Rüsselsheim, where Opel and still GM Europe have it#s HQ. As the current mid sized platform was mostly developed by Opel I suppose they are either (probably forced by contract) keeping the development, or let GM still use the European HQ (also close to the Nürburg ring) for a certain time. I don't think the sale to PSA means all ties cut on one day...

I think the mysterious SUV could be either the rumor Trailblazer or the new Cadillac XT7.
