Fuel Economy

You may expect the lesser-powered Chevy Malibu to have the advantage on fuel economy figures, but the Honda Accord manages to succeed yet again with its efficient technology. The Honda Accord generates astounding fuel economy figures of 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway*, while the Malibu falls short with only 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. The Honda Accord also uses regular unleaded gasoline across its trim levels, while the Malibu Premier operates optimally with premium fuel – a much costlier option. The Accord is not only more efficient, but easier and cheaper to maintain.

Plus, the Accord’s 16.7 cubic foot trunk is roomier than the 15.8 cubic foot trunk on the Malibu.
