    Why no pictures to show us the new front end? Shame that they only restyled the front. That part didn't need help. The rear, on the other hand, remains poorly styled.

    Don't give me a thumbs down, the pictures were posted after I asked for them.

    GM were always going to be behind the drag curve on gas mileage because this car is so damned heavy for its size. Pretty much every GM car wears 300-400lbs of lard compared with everything else in the same class. Weight is the killer when it comes to mileage, especially in the EPA city cycle where so much acceleration is required.

    This isn't even "mildly" revised, and definitely unworthy of all the hype surrounding GM's desperate MCE. Coupled with the thoroughly uninspiring 2014 trucks, and you have to suspect the General blew its entire wad on the ATS and then took a nap.

    Both the Impala and the Malibu will continue to get crushed by the Camry.

    Interesting cupholder and cell phone holder placement. Kinda neat to have them separated for driver and passenger. Don't know how well it would work in real life though.

    While I like the current Malibu, the dash design and the cartoon sized "bowties" leave me cold. I'm not fiond of the rectangularized guage pods in this, or the Camaro. That combined with the siver finish trim just looks cheap. That said, the front end refresh is nice and sharpens the exterior styling, but that huge-[non-permissible content removed] gold bowtie needs to go!
