Fuel Economy/Value

If you drive the 2015 Chevy Malibu and the 2014 Honda Accord Sedan an average of 15,000 miles annually, the Honda Accord will save you $43 more in gas than the Malibu each year. However, with a MSRP that is $74 more than the Chevy Malibu, you’d have to drive the Honda Accord for almost two years before its saving in gas matched the initial savings from the Malibu’s lower price. Furthermore, the Chevy Malibu’s larger fuel tank capacity will save you a trip to refill your gas tank each year. While both vehicles have great fuel economy and value, the 2015 Chevy Malibu is simply better.

Vehicle Safety Rating

What difference does one star make? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 5-star rating system is designed to inform drivers of vehicle safety in three primary categories: a Front Crash Test, a Side Crash Test, and a Rollover probability rating. Because the NHTSA only awards 5-Stars to cars they believe have proven their exceptional safety features, one star can make a huge difference. While both the 2015 Chevy Malibu and the 2014 Honda Accord were awarded 5 stars in their overall vehicle safety score, their scores are different. Whereas the Chevy Malibu was awarded 5-Stars in its Front-Crash test, the Honda Accord received only 4-Stars. While both vehicles have excellent safety scores, the Chevy Malibu brings you one more star for that added peace-of-mind.

Warranty Coverage

Though both the 2015 Chevy Malibu and the 2014 Honda Accord include a 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty, the Malibu’s warranty package is superior in every other way. Both vehicles feature a PowerTrain Limited Warranty, but the Chevy Malibu’s warranty goes that extra mile… 40,000 extra miles, in fact! In both vehicle’s warranty package, a Roadside Assistance program is included. 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.

However, the Chevy Malibu’s Roadside Assistance Program outlasts the Honda’s by 40,000 miles. The Chevy Malibu also includes a 2-year Maintenance Warranty that the Honda Accord lacks entirely! The Malibu’s far superior warranty package show show Chevy is prepared to go that extra mile for you.

Summary

With a better fuel economy, bigger gas tank, lower MSRP, better crash safety rating, and superior warranty package, the 2015 Chevy Malibu proves a better choice for smart car buyers than the Ford Fusion in every way.
