2014 Chevrolet Malibu vs. 2014 Chrysler 200 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Chevrolet Malibu offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Chrysler 200 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Malibu, drivers may find the Chrysler 200 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Malibu as you will with the Chrysler 200, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Chevrolet Malibu is somewhat more expensive than the Chrysler 200. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Malibu carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chrysler 200.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Malibu is about the same width as the Chrysler 200. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Malibu takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chrysler 200.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Malibu and the Chrysler 200 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Malibu has a larger turning radius than the Chrysler 200, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Malibu is significantly less powerful than the Chrysler 200. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Malibu and the Chrysler 200. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Malibu as you will in the Chrysler 200.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Malibu comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chrysler 200.
