Fuel Economy

While both the 2016 Chevy Malibu and the Toyota Camry have been designed to offer you better fuel economy than most cars out there, of the two, the Malibu’s fuel economy slightly better. Now, you may be wondering, “Does 1 extra highway mile per gallon really make a difference?” Well of course it makes at least a little difference; that extra mpg saves you $46 per year in gas.

Vehicle Safety 

Compared to metal, the Malibu’s plastic fuel tank can withstand harder, more intrusive impacts without leaking; this decreases the possibility of fire. The Toyota Camry has a metal gas tank.
Both the Malibu and the Camry have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front and rear side-impact airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front wheel drive, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, available crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, rearview cameras and rear cross-path warning.

Warranty Coverage

Being standard for all Chevy and Toyota cars, the Malibu and the Camry both include a 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited warranties. But when it comes down to the PowerTrain Limited warranty on both Malibu and Camry.  

Additionally, the Chevy Malibu features a 5-year/60,000-mile Roadside Assistance program. This program features the following services:

  • Lockout Service – You will be assisted when you accidentally lock your keys inside the vehicle.
  • Flat Tire Change – A spare will be installed for you.
  • Fuel Delivery – If you run out of gas, $5 worth of fuel will be delivered to get you back on the road.
  • Emergency Towing – Your car will be towed to its nearest dealer.
  • Jump-Starts – If you need your car jump-started, you will be assisted whether at home or on the road.

The Toyota Camry also features the Roadside Assistance Program, however it is only covered for 25,000 miles and 2 years. So Chevy’s Roadside Assistance is with you for 75,000 more miles and 3 more years! Both the superior PowerTrain warranty and the Roadside Assistance Program literally show how Chevy is ready to go that extra mile. This impressive warranty coverage makes the 2016 Chevy Malibu the clear choice for ensured vehicle reliability and exemplifies Chevy’s dedication to you.

Summary

While the 2016 Chevy Malibu and the Toyota Camry may appear to stack up equally especially in their crash safety ratings, the slightly better fuel economy and exceptional warranty coverage of the Chevy Malibu make it the clear choice for smart car buyers.
