New Chevy Malibu

Interior Space and Options

  • Side by side and by the numbers, the Chevy Malibu actually measures a little larger than the 2021 Honda Civic. It's taller, longer, and wider than our compact option. But the 2021 Honda Civic maximizes its dimensions better than the Chevy, offering more interior space, including more headroom and more legroom for the front seat.
  • While the Malibu is strictly a four-door sedan with limited trunk space for cargo, the 2021 Honda Civic is also available as a stylish and versatile hatchback. This not only gives you more opportunity to personalize your ride, but it also allows you the option of gaining more cargo space. The hatchback rear of this style means up to 25.7 cubic feet of cargo space, while the Malibu sedan trunk tops out at 15.7 cubic feet.

Performance Comparison

  • Both sedans offer base power from a standard four-cylinder engine, and both have optional upgrades available for upper trim levels. However, the 2021 Honda Civic model's optional upgrade has a wider availability than the Malibu. While Chevy makes its more-powerful option available strictly with the top-tier trim level, Honda has it as standard equipment on several trims, allowing you more opportunity to get a boost of power when you want it.
