Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord than the Chevrolet Malibu, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Malibu and the Honda Accord in the front seats.

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.

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.

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.

The Chevrolet Malibu has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Accord, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

The Chevrolet Malibu has less horsepower than the Honda Accord, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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