Choosing a hybrid vehicle provides tons of advantages for both the environment and your wallet. But, modern eco-friendly vehicles also have plenty to offer when it comes to comfort, power, capacity, and style! Two examples of top hybrids in the market are the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2017 Chevy Malibu Hybrid. These are excellent vehicles that really excel in a crowded marketplace of sedans, but which one pulls ahead on the dimensions that matter most to new sedan buyers? We've put both of these hybrid sedans to the test to see which one takes the lead.

Value and Capacity

Two of the most important questions to ask when purchasing a new vehicle are, "How much stuff can I fit in it?" and, "How much can I get for it?" Value and capacity are two key considerations for new buyers and the Accord Hybrid pulls ahead in both areas. When Accord Hybrid owners are looking to sell and upgrade down the road, they can rest assured that their purchase will hold value. The Accord Hybrid retains 54 percent of its value in 36 months and 41 percent after 60 months, compared to the Malibu Hybrid's 44 percent and 32 percent, respectively.

Drivers and passengers are keenly aware of the importance of interior capacity, especially on long drives. The Accord Hybrid wins again with important space advantages. The Accord Hybrid's gas tank is 2.8 gallons larger, which will come in handy with fewer trips to the gas station. You'll also get 2.1 cubic feet more cargo volume in the Accord Hybrid, along with more hip room, legroom, and shoulder room for your passengers.

Power and Performance

Just because a car is efficient and eco-conscious doesn't mean that you should skimp on power. Though both of these vehicles offer outstanding efficiency and surprising power, the Accord Hybrid leads the way. The Accord Hybrid produces 143 hp and 212 electric hp, compared to 124 hp and 182 electric hp for the Malibu Hybrid. The Accord Hybrid also has Variable Assisted Steering standard on all models-an excellent performance feature that is not available on the Malibu Hybrid.

Comfort and Innovations

The Accord Hybrid packs in a lot of comfort extras and added technologies that the Malibu Hybrid doesn't offer as standard features. The Accord Hybrid includes a Homelink remote system, CD player, overhead console storage, and fog lights on each model.
