Chevrolet will introduced the Malibu into its European lineup for the first time.

Chevrolet has announced it will be debuting the European Malibu at the Frankfurt motor show next month.

This is the first time that Chevrolet will be offering the Malibu in its lineup in Europe and the euro-spec Malibu will come with two engines, one petrol and one diesel unit, which will provide 164 and 169 horsepower, respectively.

Hard details available are few, though, and Chevrolet doesn't say when the model will be launched in Europe. The North American-spec Malibu goes into production next January and is slated for a showroom debut in the first part of 2012.
