2015 Chevrolet Malibu vs. 2015 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Malibu and the Chrysler 200 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Malibu will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Chrysler 200, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Malibu will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Malibu transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Chrysler 200.

Handling
The Chevrolet Malibu has a smaller turning radius than the Chrysler 200, allowing you to more easily 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.
