The new Malibu will be sold in nearly 100 countries on six continents. It is the midsize segmentas longest-running nameplate in the United States.

In order to better compete with the Toyota Camry, Chevrolet has lowered the MSRP on its entry-level Malibu by $345 to $21,995, excluding an $810 destination fee.

Hoping to attract more online shoppers, the lower MSRP is now cheaper than the Camry which starts at $22,235 excluding a $795 destination fee. The American automaker is also working hard to make more improvements to the Malibu, including making the back seat feel roomier. Those changes are expected to make a debut later this year.
