Take a look at this detailed comparison to make your decision easier.
Powertrain And Performance
The Malibu and the Accord are both powered by some solid engine options—but which one provides the better balance of fuel economy and performance? Take a look:
The base Malibu gets a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder that makes 163 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. It earns an incredible 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway. The Accord uses 2.5L four-cylinder that does make 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, and earns a not quite as good 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway.
Upgrade your Malibu to a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder and you’ve got 250 hp, 260 lb-ft of torque, and an EPA estimated 22 mpg city/33 mpg highway. The Accord can be had with a 3.5L V6 that makes 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque, and earns an EPA estimated 21 mpg city/32 mpg highway.
You can easily see that the Chevy Malibu offers a better blend of performance and fuel economy.
Comfort and Convenience Features
The Malibu comes with more features that you want when compared to the Honda Accord. The Malibu gets standard keyless entry and ignition, and navigation in all models. The Accord does not get those features in the base model. The Accord is also missing anything like the OnStar telematics system, which comes standard in the Malibu, with automatic collision notification, automatic emergency services, and enhanced roadside assistance.
