The Malibu Blue – says that five times fast – takes what Chevy calls a more athletic stance. The outside touches include the grounds effects kit, rear diffuser, black grille insert, black bowties, and rear spoiler. Open the door to illuminated door sills, sport pedal kit, and floor liners with premium metal badging. The model also drops 0.4-inches with the suspension lowering kit.
Under the white hood it carries the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine rated at 250-horsepower. It’s mated to the all-new nine-speed automatic transmission. The cherry on top looks like the Performance brake kit done in Harbor Gray Metallic.
The Cruze RS Hatch Blue follows the sporty suit. Chevy adds chrome grille inserts and the 0.4-inch suspension lowering kit. It gets sportier with Performance brakes, air intakes, and exhaust system. The Blue Hatch comes with the 1.4-liter Turbo engine. It packs 153-horses.
Inside things go classy with black. It uses a satin graphite accented instrument panel, shift knob, and door inserts. The dark theme compliments the illuminated door sills and sport pedal kit.
Most of the extra features on both models are available already. The special package combinations and color palettes make them unique.
