2015 Chevrolet Malibu with Start/Stop TechnologyOct 16th, 2014
Start/stop technology is something offered on many premium and luxury vehicles. This innovative feature shuts off the engine when the vehicle comes to a complete stop and then automatically restarts the car when the driver releases the brake pedal. This works to save a lot of fuel and prevents unnecessary idling, lowering emissions.
Until now, you would need to spend upwards of $50,000 to find a vehicle with start/stop technology, but not anymore. The technology comes standard on the 2015 Chevrolet Malibu, with a starting price of only just over $25,000. The start/stop technology works seamlessly and is something you probably will not even notice. While the engine is off, you still have fully functioning lights, audio system, climate control system and every other aspect of the vehicle, but the engine itself is switched off to save fuel. Owners of the 2014 Malibu with the 2.5L 4 cylinder engine saw a 14% improvement in their city fuel economy with the start/stop technology. That equates to a savings of $8 to $25 a month! Additional features such as Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing also also help to increase fuel economy. Owners of the 2014 Malibu with start/stop technology have been extremely happy with the functionality of the feature and more importantly, the savings they are seeing at the pump.
Chevrolet is leading the way with start/stop technology in the midsize sedan segment and other manufacturers are trying to catch up. This is the most affordable vehicle on the road now offering start/stop technology and you will be amazed at the 2015 Chevrolet Malibu!
