maybe it is actually the Malibu and the Impala will come out in 08 or 09 and will be Zeta rwd?

im not going to say its an ugly car. aint sexy either but if it were rear wheel drive and had a v8, i'd drive it. i think it looks a little classy. but thats just me. chevy needs a bold design change to spice up thier market.

Ain't no way in hell that's the new (read REAL new) Impala. Look at the greenhouse - identical to the current model. That's just a revised front and rear job. Same windows, doors and handles, same rear window. Why? Who knows. maybe another re-hash to hold us over? Perhaps they are going to do something like Ford did with the 500 and Fusion. Though I don't see the need for that with the Malibu out there. Perhaps it's simply a test platform for a new engine. Perhaps it's just out there to create confusion such as this.

Here's a question - why is there so much wheel gap up front and so little in the rear?

Maybe they are testing it as a hybrid with batteries in the back. :confused:

There's no way that's the Zeta Impala.

My guess is an MCE on the current car, looks just like a 2006 from the side.

Actually I think you may have hit it with that idea. That would make perfect sense. Either a Hybrid Impala, or a dedicated nameplate built off the Impala as a hybrid. I'm subscribing to this idea for now. It's the only explanation that works based on what we know.

It is believed that this car is the next malibu, and not the Impala...

I am hearing its the new Malibu. We shall see. There was also talk that Impala would stay FWD, and Bel Air would go on Zeta. I haven't heard as much along that line recently though.

A 2006 Impala SS will show tail lights to that one. :)

But I kinda agree, RWD is gooder.

Once again, I actually kinda like the looks of that car, especially the front end. It also looks like a bigger car than the current Malibu. I think that front end will win back some customers for Chevy, especially considering the blatantly retarded looking designs Toyota has been putting out lately. :eyes:

Thats not the new impala its the new malibu...look on any other site besides that one and its confirmed as a new malibu. Personally I think it looks pretty good.

Slvr is right that is the new Malibu. Its looks like an improvement over the last model.

well i said that on the second post on the first page... sometimes i know what I'm talking about. i do think it is a good looking car too

Looks better than Camry, and WAAAAAY better than Altima, it has personality, which automatically puts it a step ahead of Accord. As for Fusion and Sebring, well I don't think anything even needs to be said there (their position in the world market right now says it all).

Maybe this will finally be a design that can join the G6 in conquering the imports once and for all.

Good eyes guys. TCC admitted their fuck up here. http://www.thecarconnection.com/Enthusiasts/Spy_Shots/Spy_Shots_08_Chevrolet_Malibu.S178.A10733.html

And this concept sketch all but confirms that this is the next Malibu. I'm not sure how I feel about the Cobaltesque rear tailights but I will say that it looks better than the current car.
