How Does the 2012 Honda Accord Match Up Against the 2012 Chevy Malibu?

One of the things that makes us an exceptional car dealer for Middletown drivers is our insistence on educating our customers. We’re not afraid to compare our favorite Honda vehicles with the competition’s best offerings. To that end, we’d like to take a few moments to consider the 2012 Honda Accord alongside the 2012 Chevrolet Malibu.

For one thing, the 2012 Accord will get you superior fuel economy, coming in at 23 mpg city/34 mpg highway,* while the 2012 Malibu is capable of a lesser 22 mpg city/33 mpg highway — the difference may seem small, but it can add up over the life of the vehicle. The Accord also has a larger fuel tank — 18.5 gallons to the 16 gallons in the Malibu’s tank — so you’ll be able to drive longer between fill-ups.

The Accord also features a more powerful engine. While both vehicles boast a 2.4L four-cylinder, the Accord produces 177 hp and 166 lb-ft of torque, whereas the Malibu is capable of 169 hp and 160 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the Accord earned five-star ratings in all of the NHTSA’s safety tests, while the Malibu came up short in side-barrier and rollover tests, earning just four stars in those categories.
