The new Chevrolet Malibu has been getting panned for a multitude of reasons; rear head and legroom is poor, the interior is over-styled, and the powertrains are meh. Sales haven't great either; in September and October, sales dropped by 3%.
Because of this, General Motors has announced mid-cycle refresh of the new Malibu coming out late 2013, eighteen months after the Malibu was launched.
"We are going to do a midcycle enhancement, not dramatic, by this time next year," said GM CEO Dan Akerson.
Akerson told Automotive News that a revised front fascia would be part of the refresh, but wouldn't reveal anymore.
"I think it's a good car. It'll do OK. It is a tough segment and it's one we need to be successful in. We'll see how it plays out," Akerson said.
