2015 Chevrolet Malibu vs. 2015 Honda Accord

Before Driving Home a 2015 Chevy Malibu Around Mid-Missouri…

Central Missouri drivers in the market for new mid-size sedans have many choices available, but there’s a pretty good chance that the 2015 Chevy Malibu has earned your attention with features like a MyLink infotainment system, satellite radio, a rearview camera, and OnStar telematics (with subscription fee). The basic Malibu LS has power accessories, air conditioning, cruise control, and Bluetooth (for phone only), putting the Malibu a few paces behind an average mid-size car when it comes to amenities. The Malibu’s standard powertrain does manage to be rather efficient at 36 highway and 25 city mpg, at least.

The 2015 Chevy Malibu’s fuel economy is the only one of its specs that almost keeps up with the entry-level 2015 Honda Accord LX—models with a CVT earn an EPA-estimated 36 highway and 27 city mpg.** Though the fuel economies are similar, we think the fact that you’ll find the 2015 Accord on the Car and Driver‘s 10Best list for 2015* speaks volumes. This is the 29th time Honda’s Accord has earned a place on the famous list, and it’s because Honda has always ensured their mid-size sedan is one of the most competitive in its class. Standard features on the Accord set it apart from many competing models, and you won’t have to pay to upgrade for amenities like SMS texting, Pandora radio, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, and Bluetooth HandsFreeLink.
