2016 Chevrolet Malibu vs. 2017 Honda Accord Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Malibu offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Accord with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. 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
With the Honda Accord you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Malibu, 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). 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 similar torque, the Chevrolet Malibu and the Honda Accord do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

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

Performance
The Chevrolet Malibu has less horsepower than the Honda Accord, 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 Chevrolet Malibu and the Honda Accord. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Malibu as you will in the Honda Accord.

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