Holden Launches New Malibu Sedan in Australia Priced from $28,490

Sporting the same exterior looks as the pre-facelift Chevrolet Malibu sans the Holden badges and front grille, GM’s Australian unit confirmed the model line-up and pricing for its new mid-size sedan that will slot between the Cruze and the Commodore in its range going up against the likes of the Honda Accord, Ford Mondeo and Mazda6.

The Holden Malibu goes on sale in Australia this month offerings customers a choice of two trim levels, CD and CDX, and a pair of engines, a 2.4 liter petrol rated for 165hp (123kW) or a 2.0 liter common rail turbo diesel developing 157hp (117kW), with prices ranging from $28,490 to $35,990.

The Australian Malibu might have not benefited from the minor changes made to the North American model, but Holden says it was re-tuned for Australian roads and climate with market-specific suspension settings, tires and powertrain calibrations.

Along with the usual safety and handling features, the entry-level Malibu CD features 17-inch alloy wheels, steering wheel audio controls, Bluetooth, cruise control, air-conditioning, rear-view parking camera, auto headlamps, power height adjusted seats and electric park brake.

Stepping up in the CDX adds 18-inch alloy wheels, leather appointed heated front seats with eight-way power adjustments, leather steering wheel, rain sensing wipers and dual zone climate control, along with front foglamps, chrome exterior highlights and LED rear lamps.
