2016 Chevrolet Malibu vs 2016 Chrysler 200 near Arlington, VA

Drive Home in the New Malibu Today!

Redesigned for the new model year, the 2016 Chevy Malibu is new and improved like never before. It has a modern interior that makes every drive more fun, to go with a pair of engines that offer a powerful and efficient performance. To see how it stacks up against the competition, your friends at Pohanka Chevrolet put together a comparison between the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu vs 2016 Chrysler 200 near Arlington, VA.

The 2016 Malibu comes standard with a turbocharged 1.5L ECOTEC engine to offer you top-of-the-line performance. It records up to 31 MPG combined1, thanks to features such as variable valve timing, direct injection, and stop-start technology, which shuts off your engine when you’re at a red light to conserve fuel. The 2016 Chrysler 200 comes standard with a 2.4L MultiAir® 4-cylinder engine, but it can’t match the Malibu’s efficiency. It provides just 28 MPG combined2, which means you’ll make more frequent stops at the gas station. Even with increased efficiency, the Malibu more than holds its own when it comes to power under the hood. It offers 160 horsepower, which is slightly less than the 184 horsepower provided by the Chrysler 200. However, the Malibu gives you more torque with 184 lb.-ft. of torque, compared to 173 lb.-ft. of torque from the Chrysler 200.

In addition, the 2016 Chevy Malibu offers a Hybrid model to give you even better fuel economy. No matter if you’re driving on the Custis Memorial Parkway or through downtown Arlington, the Malibu Hybrid delivers. With its 1.8L 2-mode hybrid engine, the Malibu records an incredible 47/46 MPG city/hwy3. You won’t find a hybrid model on the 2016 Chrysler 200, which is just another reason why the Malibu is ahead of the game.  

Comparing the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu vs 2016 Chrysler 200 near Arlington, VA, continues with a look at each vehicle’s respective interior. The Malibu has an available Chevrolet MyLink4 display – a 7-inch touchscreen that allows you to control all of your entertainment and music with a touch of your finger. By comparison, the Chrysler 200 only offers a 5-inch touchscreen display as an available feature on its base model. The Malibu is also the first car in its class to offer available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi5. You’ll never have to burn through your phone’s data again, as the Malibu’s internet connection is strong enough to support seven devices. Needless to say, the Chrysler 200 doesn’t offer a Wi-Fi hotspot on any of its trim levels.
