2016 Chevy Malibu vs 2016 Honda Accord
What are you searching for in your next midsize sedan purchase? The only reason we ask is that, well, we’ve got two models on this page that probably check all the boxes that you’re looking for. Both the 2016 Chevy Malibu and 2016 Honda Accord have iconic nameplates worthy of their lofty reputations, and both have done a nice job in recent years of appealing to a younger generation of drivers. However, how do these two models stack up when you put them side by side?
First thing to mention, of course, is that the 2016 Chevy Malibu has been fully redesigned for the new model year. It’s lower, lighter and longer than in past years, making it more spacious than ever before. Meanwhile, it now offers standard turbocharged performance from each of its available powertrains, meaning that power and efficiency are now offered, regardless of which powertrain you choose. And, since technology is crucial to any buyer’s purchasing decision, the Malibu offers the available built-in 4G LTE WiFi hotspot, which the Honda Accord does not.
More agile, more welcoming, and more technologically advanced, the 2016 Chevy Malibu is the people’s champion in the midsize sedan segment.

Let’s get down to brass tacks with the engines in the 2016 Chevy Malibu, because they truly are something to behold. Standard for the new model year is a turbocharged 1.5L EcoTec four-cylinder engine offering up to 37 highway mpg along with 153 hp. Meanwhile, Chevy has also added a turbocharged 2.0L EcoTec four-cylinder to the proceedings as well, clocking in with an excellent 250 hp and 32 highway mpg, proving that there is truly something for everyone.
Of course, the redesigned Malibu makes a point to offer a terrific array of tech features as well. The customizable Teen Driver setting allows parents to set parameters for younger drivers, while new Front Pedestrian Alert and a Rear View Camera allow additional peace of mind as well. These join existing features such as the 4G LTE WiFi hotspot and Chevy MyLink interface, making for a model that thinks as well as it performs.
