Style and Safety with the 2013 Chevy Malibu


The new 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is ready for the style-conscious achiever. (Oh, they must be talking about me!) This is a car that has global appeal and holds Double Safety Honors.

I recently had the opportunity to test drive the Chevy Malibu from NYC to Litchfield Hills, CT. While attending an overnight getaway at the beautiful Winvian in Litchfield Hills, Connecticut, I learned all about the car and the Malibu Moms who worked created the 2013 Malibu with:

  • Style
  • Safety
  • Fuel Efficiency
  • Noise Reduction

I must say that this is not the Malibu of the past. I was a proud owner of a 2001 Malibu. While it was a great car, the new 2013 Malibu has a luxury car feel with my favorite, OnStar.


The above pictures highlight the cottage that I stayed in a cottage called The Artist at the Winvian Resort. Each of the 18 cottages are a viewing experience you will never forget with luxury amenities.


In addition to learning about car seat safety and how to properly install the different kinds of carseats, we were also reminded of the important message of never leaving your child alone in the car. In a matter of minutes, the temperature in a closed car can change drastically. Safe Kids USA offers facts and important reminders about car safety.

Chevrolet Malibu Moms

One of the most enjoyable parts of the trip was meeting the Malibu Moms team: Suzanne Cody, Julie Kleinert, Kara Gordon and Tracy Mack-Askew. These four women demonstrate the important role women and mothers play in engineering today'??s family vehicles. Each of the women played an integral role in creating the 2013 Malibu.

Here are some facts from Chevrolet about the new Malibu:

The Malibuis Chevrolet'??s first global midsize sedan, and will be sold in 100 countries on six continents. 

The 2013 Malibu Eco is Chevrolet'??s most fuel-efficient Malibu ever, delivering an EPA-estimated 25 mpg in city driving and 37 mpg on the highway.
