Competition

2016 Chevrolet Malibu vs the competition

2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid -- The Ford Fusion hybrid is an excellent midsize hybrid sedan that offers handsome styling and a comfortable ride. Fuel economy is strong -- and as a bonus, the Fusion Hybrid is even offered with a plug-in powertrain.

2016 Honda Accord Hybrid -- The Honda Accord Hybrid is a fuel-efficient midsize model that offers excellent driving characteristics, a roomy interior and the best gas mileage in the segment.

2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid -- The Camry Hybrid offers a reliable, familiar package, a roomy interior and excellent gas mileage, though it can't touch the Malibu Hybrid's numbers.

Used Toyota Avalon Hybrid -- The Avalon Hybrid is an impressive, fuel-efficient full-size sedan that offers a larger interior (and a more comfortable ride) than the Malibu Hybrid. Prices are higher, though, so you may have to consider a used model.
