Detroit Drivers, Have You Been Thinking About Buying the 2013 Chevy Malibu?

2013 Chevrolet Malibu

Chevrolet has come a long way with their recently redesigned 2013 Chevy Malibu. While the previous Malibu was solid in many respects, it simply does not compare to where the current version stands. Soft-touch materials and an interior redesign make sitting behind the wheel a bit more appealing, and the 2.5L four-cylinder engine under the hood should serve many drivers well, although there is a turbocharged engine available, too. With four different Malibu options to pick from (LS, LT, LTZ, and the quasi-hybrid Eco), Chevrolet has presented a number of options to drivers seeking their small family sedan.

The sedan market is one of the most competitive around, however, and even though the Malibu has been improved for 2013, it still does not match up to the 2013 Honda Accord. Clearly one of the biggest strikes against even the base model Malibu LS is its cost, and thanks to Honda’s new commitment to redefining what we think of as “standard” features, you get quite a bit more for your money on the Accord LX. Each level of the Accord includes a safety-enhancing rearview camera, handsfree SMS text messaging functionality, dual-zone climate control, and more at no extra cost. These are just a few of the features that Chevrolet would charge you more for on a Malibu LS.
