The 2014 Toyota Camry vs. the 2014 Chevy Malibu

When you’re in the market for a new sedan, there are plenty of vehicles to choose from. We know quite a few Bradenton and West Samoset area drivers that are curious about the 2014 Toyota Camry, and that’s not too surprising. The Camry has a history of being a decent choice in the sedan class, but is it the best you can do?

Here at Cox Chevrolet we have the 2014 Chevy Malibu, and we’re confident that it bests the new Camry in the ways that matter most. Read on to see just where the Malibu comes out on top.

Chevy Drivers Get More for the Money

Nobody likes to talk about money when it comes time to search for a new car—unless it means savings. And if you drive the Malibu, with its MSRP of $22,140, you’ll be saving just a bit over the Camry’s $22,235. That may not seem like a lot, but when you see everything else Chevy gives you, it’s clear that the Malibu is simply a better value.

General Motors Gives You Power

The standard powertrain for the Malibu is a 2.5L four-cylinder that’s good for 197 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. That engine bests the Camry’s 2.5L with 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. Despite being more powerful, Chevy’s engine is also more efficient, getting an EPA-estimated 36 mpg on the highway to the Camry’s 35 mpg. That’s superior engineering, plain and simple.

Convenience and Tech Features

Not only is the Chevy more powerful and more efficient, but its better equipped. Take a look at this standard equipment that comes on the Malibu that is either unavailable or costs extra on the Camry:

  • Onboard handsfree communication system
  • Trip computer
  • Telematics system

Add in Chevy’s 100,000-mile powertrain coverage over Toyota’s 60,000-mile warranty, and we’re not quite sure why folks choose the Camry anymore.
