Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Malibu offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Camry with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Malibu and the Toyota Camry in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Malibu as you will with the Toyota Camry, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Malibu will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Camry. 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 Toyota Camry.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Malibu is about the same width as the Toyota Camry. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Malibu takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Camry.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Malibu and the Toyota Camry do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Malibu is significantly less powerful than the Toyota Camry. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Malibu as you will in the Toyota Camry.

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