Chevrolet Malibu vs. Toyota Camry

Chevy Malibu vs Toyota Camry Houston

The Chevrolet Malibu faces plenty of tough competition in Texas, both from vehicles within its class and those of other sizes. Although the Toyota Camry is a midsize sedan just like the Chevy Malibu, it just doesn’t compare in terms of pricing, warranty, efficiency, and other factors.

Fuel Efficiency

Everyone wants to drive an efficient vehicle. After all, getting better gas mileage does more than just help the planet; it also saves you money. You will have to fill up your tank less frequently and will make fewer trips to the gas station. You can use that time to do more important things, such as spending time with your family or getting more hours at work.

Efficiency is just one of the many strengths of the Malibu. To help with fuel efficiency and power, Chevy put a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine in the base Malibu. This engine gives you an impressive 27 mpg* in the city, 37* on the highway, and 31* combined. Every single one of these numbers beats out the Toyota Camry, which only gets 25* mpg in the city, 35* on the highway, and 28* combined.

Space to Stretch OutChevy Malibu Backseat Houston

The Malibu and Camry prove that just because two vehicles are in the same class doesn’t mean they are the same size. In a battle of space, the Chevy Malibu has the extra space to stretch out. This Chevrolet has 102.9 cubic feet of passenger space compared to as little as 101.3 cubic feet in the Camry. Those extra 1.6 cubic feet can help make you comfortable, especially for taller people. The Malibu also has a more spacious trunk than the Camry. At 15.8 cubic feet, it is 0.4 cubes larger, a difference you will notice when loading up the sedan for a road trip or coming back with a car full of shopping.


For all its advances in technology, Toyota is still behind in one key area, and the Camry suffers the consequences. There is no method of turning your Camry into a wireless hotspot. Every single Chevy Malibu comes standard with OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities. This system lets you create a hotspot and connect up to seven devices at once. It even comes with a free trial so you can test the feature out before committing to the small monthly payments.
