Comparison Review

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 Civic, 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 Malibu is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Civic. 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 Malibu will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Honda Civic.

Performance
The Chevrolet Malibu has less horsepower than the Honda Civic, 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 Civic.

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