Holden Malibu

Holden's ill-fated experiment with Daewoo-built products is perfectly encapsulated with the largely unloved Malibu.

Imported from Korea with the sole intention of battling Toyota's Camry in the medium sedan segment – and perhaps paving the way to serve as an eventual replacement for the Commodore – the Malibu singularly failed to find a buyer base in Australia, despite offering reasonable specs and value . Offered with a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol or 2.0-litre diesel, the front-wheel drive Malibu would only end up staying in Holden showrooms for a little over three years, from June 2013 to late 2016. The Malibu's prices ranged from $12,100 for the Malibu CD to $22,110 for the Malibu CDX.
