2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Chevy Malibu
While it wasn’t the hottest topic from the Honda camp before the 2016 model year, the Honda Accord turned plenty of heads itself leading into this calendar year. It wasn’t receiving a massive overhaul like the Pilot or Civic, and it couldn’t compete with the brand-new HR-V, but the upgrades and enhancements that came with the Accord’s mid-generation makeover was definitely exciting for us. And now that the 2017 model year is upon us, we cannot wait to see the incredible updates continue to turn those heads. We thought we’d see how it measures up to another exciting midsize sedan on the market, by comparing the 2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Chevy Malibu.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Accord
As you can tell by looking at the table above, the two sedans are extremely similar to one another, but the Honda Accord still has its advantages. Its biggest advantage, as the top row depicts, comes in terms of performance, as the Accord offers an extra 25 horsepower. That’s not a monumental advantage, but 25 extra horses are definitely noticeable and will deliver a more exciting experience behind the wheel every time. And even though it offers more power, it doesn’t sacrifice fuel efficiency, as evidenced by the fact that it offers the same 7.5 l/100km combined.
Another area in which the Honda Accord gets a bit of a leg up is in the cabin, as it offers an extra 0.3 cu. ft. of passenger volume. That small amount won’t be extremely noticeable, but any bit of extra space in the cabin means a bit more room for your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in. So despite being so small, it’s still an advantage we’re proud to point out. The two sedans’ trunks, on the other hand, are identical at 15.8 cu. ft.
What this comparison really comes down to, if a bit of extra horsepower and cabin space aren’t enough for you, is style. And if you think the sport 2017 Honda Accord Sedan is the right vehicle for you, just schedule a test drive right here on our website or by giving us call at the sales desk.
