The first image of Chevrolet’s all-new mid-sized Malibu sedan has been released ahead of its global reveal next month at the Shanghai Auto Show. The teaser image is of a LTZ version of the upcoming car.

Online fans will be among the first to glimpse the new car when Chevrolet unveils the Malibu on Facebook on Monday April 18, which is timed to coincide with the sedan’s public debut in Shanghai on April 19.

The new Malibu will be the first Chevrolet mid-sized vehicle designed for the global market, and the car will be sold in up to 100 countries around the world. In Australia, wearing a Holden badge, the new car is slated to bridge the gap between the Cruze and the Commodore.
