2013 Chevy Malibu vs 2013 Chrysler 200 South FL

The V-6 engine that powers the Chrysler 200 gets 29 miles per gallon on the highway and it comes in a convertible or sedan model. This beauty took the place of the popular Sebring model in 2011 and comes with stability and traction control systems and seats five very nicely. The 200 also comes with a security alarm, (a good move because they are becoming more and more popular with everybody), tire pressure monitoring system, front head restraints and six airbags.

The Chevy Malibu gets good gas mileage and comes with a four-cylinder engine that pumps out 197 horsepower. The name Malibu has been popular since the 1960s and it looks like Chevy has built another Malibu in that vein of popular models. It's small but comfortable and it looks good on the road.

2013 Chevy Malibu Power & Handling

The Chevy Malibu offers a sedate and conservative commute, which hugs the road in an authoritative way. The suspension whispers over bumps and the insulated cabin decreases any exterior din that might not be welcome. The Malibu isn't the old fast-paced showy car of say, 1965, but it handles the road in a safe and secure approach.

The Chrysler 200 is what a sporty car should be. The 166 lb.-ft. of torque gets you up to speed in no time and with the top down it might even seem like you're flying. It handles turns sharply and smoothly and if you choose to move up to the V-6, 3.6-liter package, you will be flying. That drivetrain comes with the Limited model and turns loose 283 horses, which will hold its own wherever you go. It's a quiet ride, Chrysler made sure of that with the use of specially blended materials in the cabin that keep out unwanted outside noises.

The all-wheel disc brakes on the Malibu is a nice idea and should have been done a long time ago. They decrease wheel lockups and give more safety and control to the driver. The Malibu is a little shorter than in previous years and Chevy has added a bit more girth to its sleek body. These features seem to offer more stability and confidence to an already great concept car.

Since the Sebring's demise, the 200 has begun to soar as Chrysler's sporty little convertible. (It's also available in a sedan model). The 200 brings all of what the Sebring started out to be and more. Since it's one of America's carmakers' only convertibles on the market today, it commands attention and is getting it. It's a beautiful car that is not only comfortable but also stylish. The new easy to use instrument panel and the ambient cabin lighting provide just a few of the subtle touches that Chrysler has put into this great little car. The navigation system and Chrysler's Uconnect voice-command infotainment unit are icing on the cake.


Both cars are comparable in pricing, power and torque, once again, depending on which level you move into. The 200 does come in a convertible model, however, something that the Malibu just doesn't offer.
