2015 Chevrolet Malibu vs. 2015 Honda Accord

Before You Buy a 2015 Chevy Malibu in West Michigan…

Drivers in the West Michigan area looking for that perfect new sedan have a long road ahead of them, though there’s a good chance that the 2015 Chevy Malibu will make it past the first round of shopping. Amenities like the Chevy MyLink infotainment system, a rearview camera, OnStar, and more make the Malibu a bit more appealing at the higher trim levels, but the basic Malibu LS trim is limited to power accessories, air conditioning, cruise control, and just one modern feature: Bluetooth connectivity for phone only (no audio). When compared to the competition, the Malibu just doesn’t quite stand up.

The one place where the Chevy Malibu can almost compete against the 2015 Honda Accord LX is fuel economy, though Honda’s Accord with CVT is rated at an EPA-estimated 36 highway and 27 city mpg** to the 36 highway and 25 city mpg of the Malibu. The differences only get more noticeable once you look more closely at the two sedans. The 2015 Accord comes with standard features including Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio streaming, SMS texting, Pandora internet radio, a rearview camera, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and more. And to wrap things up, the 2015 Honda Accord was just named to Car and Driver’s 10Best list* for a record 29th time.
