    Fuel Economy

    While both the 2014 Chevy Malibu and the Honda Accord Sedan have been designed to offer you better fuel economy than most cars out there, of the two, the Malibu’s fuel economy much better. In fact, if you drive an average of 20,000 miles per year, you will save $125 annually in gas with the Chevy Malibu over the Honda Accord Sedan.

    Even though $125 is a nice chunk of change in savings annually, it is not enough to choose one car over another. But looking at the fuel tank capacity, the 2014 Chevy Malibu has a another advantage. The Malibu can hold 1.3 more gallons than the Honda Accord Sedan. And that may seem like a small detail, but that detail can actually make a difference. If you drive 20,000 miles per year, you will have to refill your gas tank 4 more times with the Honda Accord Sedan than you would with the Chevy Malibu. That is time that Chevy believes you should spend driving and enjoying your vehicle.

     

    Vehicle Safety Rating

    The 2014 Chevy Malibu and the Honda Accord Sedan both have a NHTSA Overall Vehicle Safety Score of 5-Stars, but their scores are not identical. While both scored 5-Stars in their Side Crash tests, in its Front Crash test the Chevy Malibu scored 5-Stars –one star better than the Honda Accord Sedan, and in its Rollover Crash test the Accord scored one more star than the Malibu.

    Because the NHTSA only awards 5-Stars to cars they believe have proven their exceptional safety features, both the Malibu and the Accord are impressive when it comes to crash safety.

     

    Warranty Coverage

    Standard for all Chevy and Honda cars, the Malibu and the Accord Sedan both include 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited warranties. But when it comes down to the PowerTrain Limited warranties, the Chevy Malibu goes that extra mile… 40,000 extra miles, to be exact! That’s right, the Chevy Malibu’s 5-year/100,000-mile PowerTrain warranty is there for you for the long haul.
