2016 Chevrolet Malibu vs. 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Chevrolet Malibu than in the Toyota Camry Hybrid, due to the Chevrolet Malibu's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Malibu and the Toyota Camry Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Toyota Camry Hybrid 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 Toyota Camry Hybrid. 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 Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Malibu is a little wider than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Malibu takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Malibu transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Chevrolet Malibu and the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Malibu and the Toyota Camry Hybrid. The Chevrolet Malibu has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Malibu comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Camry Hybrid.
