2017 Chrysler 200 vs. 2017 Chevrolet Malibu: Compare Cars

The 2017 Chrysler 200 and the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu are sleek, affordable, and full of features—but which one is better for you?

Both of these four-doors are targeted at the heart of the mid-size sedan market. The 200 was redesigned three years ago and 2017 may be its last model year as Chrysler has announced it will be dropped. The Malibu was new for 2016, replacing a less-than-successful model that lasted only three years.

6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu is a solid mid-sizer in the segment, punctuated by good, efficient powertrains, and a quiet ride. The 2017 Chrysler 200 excels for safety and style, but rear seat headroom is a problem and it has trouble grabbing sales away from its very tough competition.
