Chevrolet has made safety a priority, and it shows: the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Chevrolet Malibu were named IIHS Top Safety Picks.1

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.2

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.

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 Honda Accord Sedan, those brilliant, energy-efficient HID headlights aren't even available.

An optional state-of-the-art premium sound system designed with audiophiles in mind - enjoy concert-quality sound on the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu. Want it on the 2014 Honda Accord Sedan? You'll have to pay extra, after-market.

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 Honda Accord Sedan, which doesn't have a rear parking aid option.

Performance

If you're carrying considerable cargo, the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu's increased torque6 can mean the difference between easy going and a sluggish ride.

Safety

The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu offers side airbag protection to its rear passengers standard, but that same level of safety isn't even an option on the 2014 Honda Accord Sedan.

Technical

Enjoy the increased safety, fuel economy, and yes, fun, of the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu's optional turbocharged engine. Sadly, turbo isn't an option on the 2014 Honda Accord Sedan.

Who wouldn't want more miles between fill-ups? With a 12 miles higher estimated combined tank range, the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu will keep you on the road longer than the 2014 Honda Accord Sedan.

No matter what you're stowing, from groceries to gardening gear, the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu's increased storage volume8 means you'll have more room for all your stuff, from apples to zinnias, and everything in between.

The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu's slightly smaller turn radius9 means more agile maneuvering and easier parking.

Pricing

The drivetrain in the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu is carefully engineered and built to last, and they're willing to back it with a warranty that's 40,000 miles longer than the drivetrain warranty on the 2014 Honda Accord Sedan.

The difference in MSRP between the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu and the 2014 Honda Accord Sedan may seem significant, until you consider what you're missing when you opt to save that $185: loads of standard and optional features, some for safety and some just for fun. Suddenly, that modest $185 doesn't seem like much of a "savings" at all, does it?
