The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.6

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu lineup skips performance models, plush luxury appointments, and all-wheel drive; yet the driving experience, comfortable cabin, and frugal numbers may convince you to trade in that Camry, Accord, or Fusion. The 2016 Honda Accord rewards buyers for making a sensible choice with its fun-to-drive nature.
