Do the 2016 Chevy Malibu Standard Features Compare to an Accord?

July 29th, 2016 by

2017 Honda Accord Sedan Sport SEWe think that the 2016 Chevy Malibu standard features have certainly received some improvements in recent years, but we think Mid-Missouri drivers have better options when it comes to amenities. The 2017 Honda Accord is available now at a Mid-Missouri Honda Dealer near you, and the latest model has some of the most advanced in connectivity and safety features available on its base LX trim level.

Let’s see if the Malibu can stand up to what the Accord has to offer.

Comparing Features

If you clicked that link above, you saw how the Malibu compared to the 2016 Accord, and Honda’s sedan has only gotten better with the new model. To recap the key advantages of the Accord, here’s a look at the features you’ll find on its base LX trim that are not among the 2016 Chevy Malibu standard features:

  • Alloy wheels
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Multi-angle rearview camera
  • Bluetooth phone and audio (Malibu only has Bluetooth phone on the base trim)

One of the biggest advantages of the Accord over its competitors, Malibu included, is the available Honda Sensing safety features package. While the Malibu does have some advanced driver assistance and accident prevention features available, Chevy expects drivers to upgrade to the higher trim levels to see state-of-the-art safety. Honda lets you add the Honda Sensing package onto any Accord trim, giving access to features like:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Road Departure Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist

When you combine the features available on the base trim with the standard amenities, we think it’s clear that the Accord has the advantage. The Malibu isn’t the only vehicle the Accord has an edge over, however. We compared Honda’s sedan to another of its top competitors in our 2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 review.
