Comparing the 2017 Malibu With the 2017 Accord
To start, the Malibu is surprisingly versatile, and not in the same sense that an SUV is versatile. What we're talking about are engine options. The Accord certainly provides some powerful engine options, one of which is a 3.5-liter V6, but powerful is about all they are. For example, the Malibu's standard engine is also efficient, capable of achieving the same maximum MPG as the Accord without having to settle for a dull CVT transmission like the Accord does. If you want more power, the Malibu's turbocharged 2.0-liter engine provides a stunning 250 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, while the hybrid engine option is great for those who place fuel efficiency as their primary concern.
When it comes to standard features, the Malibu is generously equipped, particularly in the area of safety and security. It comes standard with OnStar services, which you won't find on the Accord. These include OnStar Roadside Assistance, OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation and OnStar Automatic Crash Response. It also has a Rear Seat Reminder to remind you to check the rear seats before leaving the car.
As you can see, the Malibu delivers great value to provide exactly the driving experience you want, both through three different engine options and through generous features that enhance your driving experience. When it comes to this comparison between the 2017 Chevy Malibu and 2017 Honda Accord, we certainly know which model we would pick. Don't just take our word for it though.
