If you’re in the market for a midsize sedan that’s efficient and includes an impressive interior, then your search ends with the incomparable 2018 Chevrolet Malibu. We did our research and are proud to show you how it competes with the 2018 Honda Accord, and why it ultimately comes out on top. After you’ve seen why the Malibu outshines the Accord, come into your favorite dealership, Christenson Chevrolet, to take it for a test drive you won’t soon forget!

It’s no secret that both of these midsize sedans come with exceptional interiors, but there’s definitely a few reasons why the Malibu will make each drive a lot more exciting than the Accord. First and foremost, you need to be comfortable and be able to stretch out just the way you want each time you’re behind the wheel, and the Malibu lets you do just that. In the Malibu you’ll be getting 39.10 inches of headroom and 58.8 inches of shoulder room in the front, so you and your favorite copilot won’t be bumping into each other and can enjoy utmost comfort each time you hop onto Route 30. Unfortunately, you may feel cramped in the Accord and find yourself bumping shoulders with your front passenger due to the 39.5 inches of headroom and 58.3 inches of headroom in the front. When you want to jam out to your favorite tunes, you want that rich, quality sound right? Well, that’s exactly what you’ll be getting in the 2018 Malibu since it comes with six speakers standard, so no word will go unheard and everyone will be joining in on the dance party! The Accord, on the other hand, only comes standard with four speakers, so some words will get lost in the shuffle, especially when dealing with all that traffic noise. Last, but definitely not least, in the Malibu you’ll find available 4G LTE Wi-Fi1, which allows for up to seven devices to be connected at all times. How awesome is that? You and your whole crew will always have internet access without worrying about draining your data! This feature is not available in the Accord, so you may not always be able to access your favorite apps and may be surprised by a hefty phone bill. If it isn’t clear, the Malibu was built for any adventure!

There’s no way we’d conclude this comparison without talking about the performance of these two midsize sedans. Once again, you’ll find that the Malibu crossed the finish line before the Accord. Each time you press your foot to the accelerator of the Malibu’s available 2.0L Turbo engine, you’ll feel unbelievable power because it exudes 250 horsepower. The Accord’s available 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, even on its highest trim the Touring, only produces 192 horsepower its 2.5L 4-cylinder engine produces, so you won’t be able to feed that inner speed demon and your drives will lack excitement. If it still isn’t obvious why the Malibu comes out on top, we have another reason – it’s fuel efficiency. Thanks to its 49/43 MPG city/hwy2 fuel economy found on the Malibu Hybrid, you’ll be doing a lot of cruising without interrupted stops at the pump to fill up your gas tank. The Accord, however, only comes with 29/35 MPG city/hwy3, and you will have to stop at the gas station more than you intended to. Your drives in the Malibu will be nothing short of efficient and exhilarating!

Now that you’ve seen this 2018 Chevrolet Malibu vs 2018 Honda Accord near Valparaiso, IN, comparison, head on over to Christenson Chevrolet to view the Malibu’s other impressive features! We are located at 9700 Indianapolis Blvd. in Highland, IN, and our staff can’t wait to get you behind the wheel of this astounding midsize sedan. See you soon!

Great customer service! Improved my day after trying to go to work then discovering a flat tire. The service rep Marty was really nice and helpful, which that's not always the case in my experience in other service depots. Keep up the great work!

Kyle hooked me and my family up. We definitely will be going back when we decide to get our other car. Do not go to anybody else because they're not going to treat you like Kyle. "TRUST ME"! I was getting ready to leave because of the cold demeanor that the other salesmen had and then I met Kyle and it was like going from "car hell" to "car heaven"! Really!

The young lady who assisted with scheduling my appointment was courteous and informative. On the day of my appointment from the moment I drove into service center I was greeted and Jim the representative who interacted me was thorough in explaining what to expect. He also checked if there were any other maintenance needs needed for my vehicle. I never felt pressured but was given options. Jim went above and beyond my expectations. I would definitely seek him out for my next service visit.

Barb is amazing!

AWESOME-SAUCE! Where to start? Aaron Shaps should be known as Christenson Chevrolet's Salesman of the Year for selling us two brand new vehicles within less than 2 months! He certainly deserves an award! He is trustworthy. I didn't fee pressured during any portion of my purchase of a 2018 Chevy Silverado. He made everything quick & painless and actually pretty easy. His communications were quick & clear. He played no games. Everyone in the dealership was professional and polite and attentive to my needs. Aaron went above & beyond to locate my new truck. He even stayed after hours to help with the delivery. I would go no where else to buy a new vehicle and would highly recommend this establishment. THANK YOU, AARON & THE CHRISTENSON TEAM!

Thanks to Justin Nooner, and the Christensen Chevrolet team, I now have a beautiful new 2018 Traverse High Country! Justin found exactly what I was looking for and I couldn’t be more pleased. It has been ten years since I have had a new car, so I’ve been a bit overwhelmed with all the “bells and whistles” on this car, but Justin has given me a few “training” sessions... plus answers my questions via phone and text as well. You rock, Justin... thanks for your patience while sharing your expertise!

After wrecking my vehicle on I-65 during a snowstorm, Sunday, February 4th, my husband and I found ourselves in the market for a new one. I researched what type of vehicles I wanted and decided on a Traverse, but had some "must have" criteria. I looked at dealerships across Northwest Indiana and found what I was looking for at Christenson. Having had purchased my very 1st car from them back in 2003, I was confident they would be able to work with us. While the original person I was supposed to meet with was unable to on the day my husband and I went it, Justin Nooner stepped-up to the plate and our purchasing experience was awesome! We came home with a brand new 2018 AWD Traverse on Monday, February 12 and we couldn't be happier. Thank you Justin and the rest of the Christenson Team for everything you've done and will do in the future. Definitely will buy from them again when we're ready for another new vehicle.

By far the best looking showroom for Chevrolet in the area. The body shop has done excellent work for me on many occasions. They do outstanding work. One time I had to give them a car to re- work the bodywork another shop had done and fixed it with no problem. The next time I am looking.for a new Chevy I will definitely be going back to give them my consideration.

Da Juan Hunter a week ago-Customer service here is ALWAYS amazing!!!! Randy in service and Dave in parts are the absolute best! I have to add to this review. I had recently been having some issues with my traction control light coming on and going off. I took it to several dealerships in NYC and every place said the car was fine. I was finally able to bring my car back to Indiana and of course brought it to Christenson Chevrolet. Working with Anthony, and the amazing technicians they found the problem. As it turns out, it was my transmission control module. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that they wouldn’t be able to find my issue. These guys are truly my heros! Thank you so much!!!

Just bought my second truck from Christenson a 2017 silverado midnight edition. My salesman Justin was great. He took the time to make sure I was completely satisfied and he even stayed over 3 1/2 hours after his shift was over to make sure I was taken great care of. This dealership really knows how to treat their customers. Thanks guys.
