General Motors is working hard to give its Chevrolet Malibu a refresh by late next year, despite it being only 18 months since the sedan got redesigned.
According to CEO Dan Akerson, in an interview with Automotive News, the Malibu will get a “midcycle enhancement, not dramatic, by this time next year.” Changes will include a new front bumper, but Akerson didn’t go deep into the details.

The redesigned Malibu hasn’t been a hit at the dealerships and its sales have caused GM to take a page out of Honda’s book with a quick redesign. Honda recently made an unprecedented move by updating its Civic model, a quick one year after it had been released.

“I think it’s a good car. It’ll do OK,” Akerson said. “It is a tough segment and it’s one we need to be successful in. We’ll see how it plays out.”
