Chevrolet's mid-size sedan rides on GM's Epsilon platform with contemporary body styling evident and innovative features in the five-seat cabin. There's a fold-flat seatback for the front bucket and a rear split bench that folds to boost cargo space.

For 2006 the trims and powertrains expand with a deluxe LTZ model added plus the sport-skewed Malibu SS. In all, there are four variations -- Malibu LS, LT, LTZ and SS. Engine options include the Ecotec 2.2-liter four-cylinder worth 140 hp for LS and LT or a 3.5-liter V6 with 201 hp for Malibu LTZ. The SS employs GM's new 3.9-liter V6 with VVT pumping 240 hp.

Malibu LTZ stocks foglamps, automatic climate controls, six-way power for the driver's bucket and curtain-style air bags. Malibu SS adds special body fascia fore and aft with a spoiler on the tail, sport suspension tuning and 18-inch flangeless wheels.
