2013 Malibu ECO to Come With Chevrolet MyLink
text size: A- A+
This means the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu will give customers a higher level of in-vehicle wireless connectivity and customized infotainment options, thanks to the aforementioned feature.
The in-car infotainment package integrates online services such as Pandora internet radio and Stitcher SmartRadio using hands-free voice and touch-screen controls via Bluetooth-enabled phones.
"Car buyers considering the all-new 2013 Chevy Malibu don't have to settle for mass market radio," said Jon Hahn, Malibu marketing manager. "They want the option to create their own individual stations and have access to them wherever they are. MyLink makes media personalization easy for consumers on the go."
MyLink adds stereo audio streaming and wireless control of smartphones, building on the voice-activated Bluetooth hands-free calling capability already offered in most Chevy vehicles. MyLink also includes a seven-inch, high-resolution, full-color touch screen display that makes media selection easy to navigate.
MyLink also retains all the capabilities of today's entertainment functions, including AM/FM/Sirius XM tuners, CD player with MP3 playback, auxiliary and USB inputs.
The Eco version of the Malibu is a variant that GM says will be the most fuel-efficient midsize sedan in the history of the company. With this promise comes the first use on a Chevrolet car of the eAssist system, a micro-hybrid technology that gives the Malibu consumption figures of 26 mpg in city driving and 38 mpg on the highway, from the 180hp 2.4l Ecotec four pot engine.

MyLink is already available on the Chevy Cruze. If you just don't buy the basic trim, it will have MyLink.
