Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Chevrolet Malibu ranked #11 in Midsize Cars. Currently the Chevrolet Malibu has a score of 6.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 24 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Low base price for the class
Great fuel economy

Cons
Cheap-feeling cabin materials
Dull handling
Less passenger and trunk space than rivals

By:

Almost nothing! The Malibu received a minor visual update for 2019, so the 2020 Malibu carries over to this year with only a few new colors (Stone Gray and Black Cherry) and new wheels for the RS and Premier trims. Three paint colors available in 2019 are no more, so if you had a strong attachment to or lust for Iridescent Pearl, Pacific Blue, or Sandy Ridge, 2020 just isn't your year.

Pros
Handsome (yes, really!) design, lots of tech, great ride and handling for its class.

Cons
Poor rear visibility, cheaper models lack features, can't disable auto stop/start.

The 2020 Chevrolet Malibu comes with front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: continuously variable-speed automatic.Several optional packages have been renamed.The Malibu Hybrid has been discontinued.

PROS
Spacious interior with lots of front-seat headroom
Easy-to-use touchscreen interface

CONS
Lackluster acceleration from the base 1.5-liter engine
Limited outward visibility
Interior looks dated compared to rivals

The 2020 Toyota Camry sits near the top of our midsize car rankings. It offers an enjoyable ride, plenty of active safety features, and some of the best fuel economy estimates in the segment. A smallish trunk and noticeable cabin noise are among its few faults.

Pros
Great fuel economy
Engaging ride
Generous list of standard features
Excellent safety score

Cons
Below-average trunk space
Noisy cabin

By: 
usnews.com

The Camry has returned to glory with its exciting lineup, improved build quality, and priority on safety.

Pros
Frugal four-cylinder engine,
truly sporty TRD model,
standard driver assists.

Cons
Tepid four-cylinder acceleration,
polarizing exterior design,
has to compete against the Honda Accord.
