With so many different options available today in the sedan class of vehicles, it can be difficult to find the right mix of luxury, convenience, and affordability. The 2015 Buick Verano is a luxury vehicle with the fuel economy ratings and price to make it the perfect vehicle for many. Today we will be comparing the 2015 Buick Verano vs 2015 Chevy Malibu to offer insight into the benefits and highlights of each. We want to help you choose the perfect vehicle to fit your lifestyle and preferences.
Beginning with the exterior, both the Verano and the Malibu have features that make them stand out. The Malibu’s chrome details and aggressive-looking front end is a step up from previous years’ models, but still blends into the background in a sea of sedans all seeking to stand out. The 2015 Buick Verano offers, yet another, excellent model in their redesign process. This year’s Verano features the stylish waterfall front grille and almond-shaped headlights. Natural lines and curves combine to create a vehicle that pulls away from the Buick stereotype, and is sure to impress drivers and passengers alike. Under the hood, these two vehicles are similar. A 2.4-liter I-4 in the Buick Verano is matched by a 2.5-liter I-4 in the Chevy Malibu. Each engine offers excellent fuel economy ratings, but the lighter and less luxurious Chevy Malibu pulls slightly ahead in this category. Considering all the aspects, the more impressive design and appearance goes to the Buick Verano, but the slightly higher fuel economy numbers of the Chevy Malibu may be a factor in your decision.
On the inside, the differences between these two 5-passenger sedans become more apparent. The Chevy Malibu, although slightly less expensive, doesn’t offer the same level of luxury as the Buick lineup has shown to the automotive industry time and time again. On first glance, you can see that the interior of the base trim Buick comes with more modern technology. The first-row LCD screen works as a control center for the vehicle, while the driver and passengers enjoy heated premium cloth seating with leatherette trim. The dashboard and control panel offer all the details and tools a driver needs to make their experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The Chevy Malibu, however, offers very little excitement with a very plain interior at the base trim and a control center that is missing modern convenience technology that is offered for a similar price on the 2015 Buick Verano. Overall, the Buick Verano offers luxury and affordability, while the Chevy Malibu offers affordability and a basic package for the interior. Either vehicle will get you places, but the Buick will do it in comfort and style.
