Chevrolet Malibu Maxx
Chevy introduced the Malibu Maxx in 2004 as a bigger, more practical version of the economy, compact Malibu. The Maxx version was an interesting option since it was slightly longer than the regular model. It also had more room in the back and featured a hatchback rear end. In contrast to the standard Malibu, the Maxx had more space and practicality, but a slightly awkward design and appearance.
The base engine was a 2.2-liter four-cylinder, but the interesting version was the SS. With a 3.9-liter V6 engine and 240 HP, the Malibu Maxx was capable of a convincing performance. However, the market didn’t seem to understand the appeal of the Maxx, so they discontinued it in 2007.
