2006 Chevy Malibu/Maxx pictures

I must say the changes make it look much better, even if it's still not the most attractive car ever. The new interior colors are better I think, and the chrome rings around the radio controls are a good touch. I don't much care for the steering wheel however.

Looks like they introuced some contrast to the interior. It looks a whole lot better in there.

Wow....the black dash/door panel contrast to the beige and grey interior is what they should have done in the first place....! It's much better (although I STILL don't like the center stack...and the radio/HVAC controls. New front end is an improvement as well!

Two-tone interior is a huge improvement, but it isn't enough to convince me to get one over a Passat, Legacy, or Fusion.

It looks pretty good...much better than the current one.... for some reason the tan one almost looks to have a "euro"ish look to it...

I agree. Such simple changes make it look so much more upscale.

I agree, looks very nice. On the exterior, I wish they would've worked the chrome bar inside the grill section though, but still looks nice.

Its an improvement, but more could still be done-namely trim level reshuffling, front split bench for LS/LT (or, Base and LS rather), a few exterior trim shuffles, and maybe a more SSR-inspired steering wheel-I've seen it in the flesh and it is by far the best of all Chevy steering wheels put together (then again, that's not hard considering how ugly and cheap/pedestrian looking most of them are).

I am actually glad Chevy is pulling away from the chrome bar in the grill look. It was becoming too constriaining and predictable. The gold 'bowtie' looks very sharp on its own.

New changes look good, especially on the front end and the interior, however, the LTZ wheels look like they were transplanted from the G6? Are those the Chrome-Tec wheels offered on the GT? Chief

The new front end looks a lot cleaner. I still don't like those center stack vents though.

This is a dumb question, but (in reference to the first interior pic) why would you have the front seat folded and the back seat not?  The back seat looks like it is going to be used for people purposes, with the DVD player being open and all, so is the person in back on the passenger side in need of a foot rest?

And also of note, they took out the B-pillar on the passenger's side. :P

perhaps there will be some good aftermarket center stack face panels available to get rid of that bland cover.

if you buy say, 4 dining room chairs that won't fit in the low height trunk, the fold flat front is a godsend.

It's great that GM can make appearance changes after two years. Compared to some looking the same for nearly a decade [Corsica]

BlkHhr104: To post a picture you need to first upload it to a hosting site. www.imageshack.us is a good one. Then, once you have the image uploaded, copy the url and paste it between

So it should look like this:

[img] url here [ /img] but without the spaces.

The front seat could be folded down in that pic just to show that it can be folded down, and also maybe to show the center stack which would otherwise be blocked by the seat.

Vast improvement on the exterior! It now looks much more in line with the rest of the Chevy lineup. Remarkable what a few simple touch-ups can do. The interior still looks a little spartan and drab for my liking. There are some improvements here and there, but, all things considered, it still doesn't look like a place I'd want to spend time in. Keep trying, Chevy!
