Weird/lame Chinese market facelift for the previous Chevrolet Malibu


 Not sure why, but it looks like they are still selling the previous generation Chevrolet Malibu in China.
And now, they are trying to make it look more like the previous generation Chevrolet Cruze.

Or generally worse than it was a few years ago.

 Same thing inside. The "new" dashboard is on top.

And looking pretty terrible when compared to the original, much nicer design.
Again, it seems like it's trying to look like a larger version of the old Cruze...

As reminder, here is the 2014 Malibu.
Still looking pretty nice...

Totally disagree; obviously it's outdated generally but this is a pretty decent facelift (both inside and out).

I disagree too. The interior of the new one looks less like an old 2000 model with a big cheap screen

Wow, very classy. Nice smooth tail lights and front. A lighter interior option would complete it all. I hope GM bring it to the U.S,

I disagree three. The facelift is a great improvement both inside and out.

Much better than before, hated those original taillights and everything else is better as well...feeling okay Vince?

disagree four. all the commentators are spot on. time for burlapp to pass blog onto burlapp jr for some fresh, objective, and perhaps non-bias comments.

Another detractor here, mainly because the awkwardly pointy dual grille and blocky taillights deserved to go. Can't say I'd like to see it in the US again though.. the new one is much sleeker (and way too hatchback-like to sell to Chinese status-seeking sedan whores).
