Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Impala than the Chevrolet Malibu. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Malibu.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Impala as you will with the Chevrolet Malibu, 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 Impala is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Malibu. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Chevrolet Impala will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Malibu.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Impala is about the same width as the Chevrolet Malibu. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Impala, which is slightly longer than the Chevrolet Malibu.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Impala does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Chevrolet Malibu.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Impala has a much more powerful engine than the Chevrolet Malibu. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

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