The 2013 Chevy Malibu vs. the 2013 Honda Accord


2013 Chevrolet MalibuA bold design, elegant interior styling, and strong performance has helped to distinguish the 2013 Chevy Malibu as a leader in its class. It has outdone the competition both in terms of design and what features it has to offer. Since its release, the 2013 Malibu has been a popular choice for Bradenton and Tampa drivers.

When it comes to dealing with the competition, the Malibu is able to go toe to toe with some of the toughest, including the 2013 Honda Accord. Drivers who value having a good list of standard features may be more interested in going with the Malibu. Let’s look at what both vehicles have to offer.

Performance and Fuel Economy

Both the base 2013 Malibu and the 2013 Accord are equipped with a similarly sized Inline 4-cylinder engine, with an average highway fuel economy of 34 mpg. Despite the same fuel economy, the 2013 Malibu has a power rating of 197 hp, compared with the 185 hp on the Accord. Both vehicles are also available with a more powerful, V6 option as well.

A Better Equipped Cabin

There are several key features that come equipped on all Malibu models that are missing from the base Accord LX, both in the comfort and safety categories. These include:

  • A passenger airbag sensor
  • Head Curtain side impact airbags in the backseat
  • Satellite radio
  • An onboard telematics system

Superior Warranty

Having a strong protection plan on your vehicle is vital. That’s why Chevy drivers enjoy a 100,000 mile / five-year powertrain warranty, compared with the 60,000 miles / five-year warranty offered by Honda. Chevy also delivers a 100,000 mile / five-year Roadside Assistance plan, which is coverage unavailable from Honda.
