2014 Chevrolet Malibu vs. 2014 Honda Accord Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Chevrolet Malibu than in the Honda Accord, due to the Chevrolet Malibu's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord, the Chevrolet Malibu may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Malibu as you will with the Honda Accord, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Malibu will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Accord. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Accord.

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

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Malibu has about the same turning radius as the Honda Accord, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Chevrolet Malibu and the Honda Accord.

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

Warranty
The Chevrolet Malibu comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Accord.
