Let's see how the 2015 Chevrolet Malibu stacks up against the Honda Accord.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE
The 2015 Malibu is packed with performance. Under the hood, you'll find a 2.5-liter ECOTEC 4-cylinder engine with 196hp standard on all trims except for the 3LT and 2LTZ, which boasts a 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine with VVT and whopping 259hp. A 6-speed automatic transmission with manual mode gear select for a sportier driving experience and FWD also come standard. The smaller 4-cylinder engine aids fuel economy and the 2015 Malibu gets an EPA-estimated highway driving of 36 MPG -- very impressive for a sedan of this caliber! Compare this to the Honda Accord which also offers two Inline 4-cylinder engines, both with less horsepower than the Malibu -- one at 185hp and a sport engine at 189 horses, but they do offer a V6. The Honda Accord matches the 2015 Malibu in fuel economy, with the Inline-4 Accord achieving an estimated 36 mpg highway with automatic transmission.
CHEVY MALIBU INTERIOR VS HONDA ACCORD INTERIOR
Chevrolet caters to all types of people with all types of needs, which is why the 2015 Malibu makes it easy to find the right one with its six trim levels. The base 1S Malibu comes standard with such features as 16-inch alloys, solar-absorbing glass that is perfect for those hot Florida summers, and halogen headlamps and daytime running lights. Inside the comfortable cabin, you'll enjoy such features like front bucket seats, a 6-speaker audio system, remote keyless entry, and Onstar, including 6 months free Directions and Connections navigation and 4G LTE. The base Accord LX comes with some of the same standard features as the Malibu, but only has a 4-speaker audio system and nothing comparable to the OnStar system.
MALIBU WARRANTY VS ACCORD WARRANTY
When you're driving your family around, you want to rest assured that you're covered if something breaks down. Chevrolet has such confidence in the 2015 Malibu that its warranty coverage beats the competitors by a mile. While the Malibu and Accord share a similar 3-year/36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty, the 2015 Malibu excels in additional coverage. A 5-year/100,000 mile drivetrain/powertrain limited warranty beats the Accords' 5-year/60,000 mile coverage. And Roadside Assistance is offered on the 2015 Malibu for 5 years/100,000 miles while the Accord only comes with 3 years/36,000 miles.
