Differences between the 2017 Chevy Malibu vs 2017 Nissan Altima

While the Altima may have the initial edge in terms of fuel efficiency, those really looking to max out their MPGs can find what they need on the hybrid model of the 2017 Chevy Malibu. The Malibu Hybrid gets you up to 49 MPG in the city and 43 MPG on the highway, allowing you to save more and stop for gas less. On the other side of the spectrum, both the 2017 Chevy Malibu and 2017 Nissan Altima also offer performance trims. Both of these models end up rocking a good balance of power and efficiency, but the 9-speed automatic transmission is better suited for the job than the CVT in the Altima, which some drivers find off-putting.

Finally, we think that interiors end up making a decision for buyers pretty frequently, especially when they’re as nice as the 2017 Chevy Malibu. Compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto comes standard on the 2017 Malibu, but the same can’t be said for the Altima. Both features are currently missing from the 2017 Altima, and while they may be available on future models, it is a big reason for people to look elsewhere at the moment.
