The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.8
8.4

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2015 Chevrolet Malibu ranks below our family-sedan favorites, mostly because of its back-seat space. The 2015 Chrysler 200 can fetch a premium for its style and its horsepower--but rear-seat room and handling are better bargains elsewhere.
