Preview: 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Turbo Performance Concept

The sported-up study is named the Malibu Turbo Performance Concept and it’s based on the fastest production Malibu ever, which in stock guise, is motivated by a 2.0-liter force-fed four generating 259 horsepower for a 0 to 60 mph (100km/h) sprint in 6.3 seconds and a maximum speed of 155 mph (250km/h).

The concept is featured in a Berlin Blue Tricoat exterior paint and is given a more aggressive look through a ground effects package that includes a front splitter, rocker panels, rear diffuser and a boot-mounted wing.

The aero package works together with new 20-inch alloys shod in Pirelli PZero 255/35ZR20 tires, custom lower grille and fog lamp grilles with red surrounds, clear tail lamp lenses and turbo badges.

Inside, Chevy tells us (but doesn’t share any images) the Malibu is fitted with RECARO sport seats trimmed in Jet Black leather and Navy Blue suede with red accent stitching, with the same materials and colors also found on the flat-bottom steering wheel, door panels and instrument panel.

Performance modifications include a HiPer Strut front suspension and rear springs, six-piston front brake calipers with two-piece cross-drilled rotors and a prototype cold-air intake system, which the carmaker says can help the 2.0L engine make more power without releasing any specific numbers.

2013 Holden Malibu

Holden said that it will complete the engineering work to tailor the vehicle to Australian customers’ tastes over the next few months through “extensive testing” at the brand’s proving ground in Lang Lang and numerous verification drives on Victorian public roads.

Besides the Holden front grille and badges, there are no other styling changes over the Chevrolet Malibu.

Holden has not yet confirmed the engine lineup of the mid-size model that will sit right under the slightly larger Commodore in the company’s range.

In the U.S., engine choices for the Malibu include a 2.4-liter eAssist four-cylinder engine (mild-hybrid) with 180hp, an Ecotec 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 197-hp and a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-banger with 259-horses.
