The upcoming Holden Malibu will make its European debut in Chevrolet guise at next month's Frankfurt Motor Show, General Motors has confirmed.

The news follows the Malibu's global unveiling at April's Shanghai Auto Show and confirmation that the new mid-sizer will arrive in Australian showrooms sometime in 2012.

Specifications for Holden's version of the Malibu won't be revealed until next year, but European models will be offered with a 122kW 2.0 litre petrol unit and a 126kW 2.4 litre turbodiesel.

In North America, the Malibu will be offered with a new direct-injected 2.5 litre four-cylinder Ecotec petrol engine, paired with a six-speed Hydra-Matic 6T40 automatic transmission and producing 141kW and 245Nm of torque.



Holden has confirmed that its Epica replacement will wear the Malibu badge when it launches in Australia sometime in 2012.

“Malibu will represent another major step forward in the Holden product offensive when it arrives late next year, filling a gap in our model line-up between our leading Cruze and Commodore models,” Holden Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, John Elsworth said.

With the new Malibu expected to be sold in nearly 100 countries, production will take place at a number of plants. The origin of Australia's Malibu has yet to be confirmed, although Korean production is likely.
