2015 Buick Verano vs. 2015 Chevrolet Malibu Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Malibu than the Buick Verano, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Buick Verano and the Chevrolet Malibu in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Malibu you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Buick Verano, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Buick Verano is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Malibu. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Buick Verano is much higher than that for the Chevrolet Malibu.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Verano is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Malibu, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Buick Verano is slightly shorter than the Chevrolet Malibu, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Buick Verano doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Malibu.

Handling
The Buick Verano has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Malibu, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Buick Verano has less horsepower than the Chevrolet Malibu, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Buick Verano and the Chevrolet Malibu. The Buick Verano has less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Malibu, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Verano than that of the Chevrolet Malibu.
