For a boltless or clipless option for your 2016 Chevy Malibu, we have the SeaSucker Komodo Trunk Bike Rack - Fork Mount - Vacuum Cup Mounted - Black # 298-BK1910-BK. This will allow you to carry your bike without contact with a hitch or the clips of a traditional trunk mounted bike carrier. This carrier has a weight capacity of 45 lbs and each vacuum cup has a pull strength of 210 lbs so you can be sure your bike isn't going anywhere at highway speeds.

You may also be interested in the SeaSucker Hogg - Bike Wheel Carrier - Anodized Aluminum # 298-BA1580 to carry your wheel and the SeaSucker Cable Anchor for Cable Lock - Trunk Mounted # 298-BA0020 to secure your bike and carrier with a cable lock like # e98891

This system is obviously transferable between vehicles for when your lease is up.

Question:

How about a trailer hitch that doesn't damage my lease for my 2016 Malibu that I can attach a bike rack to.

The only hitches for your 2016 Chevy Malibu are an installation that requires the removal of your bumper and fascia trimming. The only other option is a roof rack. I recommend the Rhino Rack Roof rack for naked roofs consisting of the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 49" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA126B-2, Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Naked Roofs or Fixed Mounting Points - Qty 4 # RRRLKVA, and the Custom DK Fit Kit for Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Legs - Naked Roof # DK462. I also recommend the metal locking caps # RRVA-LEC4 to secure any accessories utilizing the slotted bars.

There is a more cost effective roof rack in the Sportrack # SR1010, but I don't recommend this system for carrying a bike rack on your leased vehicle.

For your bike rack, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Rack - Wheel Mount - Clamp On - Aluminum # RRRBC050. This rack holds your bike by the wheel and has integrated locks for security. I recommend using the Top Channel Mounting Kit for Rhino-Rack Hybrid Roof Bike Carrier # RRRBCA034.
