While the Fusion and the Altima will give you a more thrilling drive than the Malibu, neither of them is as roomy or comfortable inside.
This is especially true in the backseat, where the Malibu, along with the Camry and Accord, is very roomy.
The Malibu is further differentiated from its rivals when it comes to interior styling, putting cars like the Camry to shame with its attractive dashboard and premium-feeling materials.
The Fusion and Accord, however, feature interiors that arguably are just as good as the Malibu’s.
The Hyundai Sonata, though comfortable, isn’t quite up to scratch.
