Efficiency

If you're trying to pinch pennies, every single mile per gallon toward better fuel economy counts, including the one between the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu and the 2014 Toyota Camry. That one humble MPG can make a big difference, though, over time. Every little bit counts, right?

Features

Sometimes the beauty is in the details - including the thoughtful touches inside the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu. These dynamite details include ice-blue ambient lighting on the instrument panel and doors, easily accessible storage areas, acoustic laminated glass (for a quieter ride) and carefully sculpted seats for comfort that rivals your couch.4

Is it possible to get increased visibility while using less energy? With the optional HID Headlights on the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, the answer is yes. On the 2014 Toyota Camry, those brilliant, energy-efficient HID headlights aren't even available.

No more parallel parking jitters - the optional Rear Parking Aid on the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2014 Toyota Camry, which doesn't have a rear parking aid option.

With dozens of standard and optional features, some for enhanced safety and some just for fun, the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu competes handily with the other cars in its class - and wins, hands down.4
