Are you in the market for a mid-size sedan that is powerful, fuel-efficient, and can protect your precious cargo? Then you must see the Honda Accord! Honda's popular Accord sedan is consistently one of the best-selling cars in America, and the latest version is the most well-equipped Accord ever produced. Vatland Honda proudly serves residents near Ft. Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Sebastian, and Palm Bay & Fellsmere as one of the area's go-to Honda dealerships. We invite nearby drivers to visit our Vero Beach, FL showroom to test drive the stylish new Honda Accord. You can shop our substantial inventory of Accords and other Honda vehicles right here on our website; then, stop by our dealership location to speak with one of our helpful sales team members.

Here on the Vatland Honda website, you can not only shop our current inventory, but you can also research Honda's models, like the new Accord, and even compare them to the competition. Let's see how the 2016 Honda Accord stacks up against one of its classic rivals, the Chevrolet Malibu.

Standard Fuel Capacity

When it comes to standard fuel economy, the 2016 Honda Accord and Chevrolet Malibu are neck and neck, as both achieve a mighty impressive 27 city and 37 highway mpg -- with a combined 31 mpg rating. However, that doesn't mean that you can get as far on one tank of gas in the Malibu as you can in the 2016 Accord! The new Accord comes standard with a large, 17.2-gallon gas tank, while the Malibu comes standard with a mere 13-gallon fuel capacity. Using the average, or combined fuel economy rating of 31 mpg, that means that thanks to the Honda's larger fuel tank, Accord drivers can travel around 130 miles further than Malibu drivers! If you like to spend as little time at the gas pump as possible, then you should take a serious look at the 2016 Accord when shopping for a new sedan.

Standard Horsepower and Torque

The 2016 Accord's standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine not only sips fuel, but it is also more than capable of transporting you and your family or friends around town or cross-country. Developing a potent 185 horses and 181 lb-ft of torque, the Accord's 2.4-liter engine delivers its power to the front wheels via your choice of either a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a sporty 6-speed manual gearbox. The Honda's standard power sounds even more impressive when you compare it the Malibu's standard 1.5-liter turbo engine, which produces a mere 160 hp. That's right; the 2016 Accord has a 25 hp advantage over Chevy's Malibu! Given that these two mid-size sedans tip the scales at roughly the same weight, you will certainly feel the extra 25 hp that is on tap in the Accord. Of course, if you want even more power when you step on the throttle, then consider a Accord equipped with a V6 engine. The available 3.5-liter V6 i-VTEC engine develops an inspiring 278 horses, or nearly 100 hp more than the already very capable standard Accord! No matter which 2016 Accord model you choose, you will have the power to be confident in any driving situation.

Passenger Space and Comfort

When the comfort of your passengers matter, be sure to choose a mid-size sedan with spacious seating for all five passengers, like the Accord. Featuring more overall passenger volume than the Malibu, the 2016 Accord also tops its rival from Chevy with more front legroom, shoulder room, and hip room, as well as more second-row legroom and hip room. So, not only are the Accord's seating surfaces extremely comfortable, available with cloth or leather seating surfaces, but the seating themselves are more spacious for all passengers than what you will get in the Malibu. It is clear that if you value space for all of your passengers, then the 2016 Honda Accord sedan is the way to go!

Standard Interior Features

If you are searching for a new mid-size sedan that is well-equipped even in base trim, then be sure to test drive a 2016 Honda Accord LX. There is a whole host of wonderful amenities that come as standard equipment on the 2016 Accord that you will not find on the base 2016 Chevy Malibu. Standard on the 2016 Accord you will find a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, driver's side vanity mirror, illuminated vanity mirror, exterior temperature gauge, and variable assisted steering -- none of which are offered on the base 2016 Malibu. Stylish and durable alloy wheels also come as standard on the 2016 Accord, but are not even available on the Malibu in base trim. As you can see, Honda offers a more well-rounded list of standard features on the Accord than what comes with Chevy's base 2016 Malibu. If you want to take advantage of one of the best values in the mid-size sedan class, then get into a Honda Accord!

Safety Features

If you are shopping for a new mid-size sedan, then the chances are that you plan on transporting your family, friends, or other loved ones around on a regular basis. Well, you will be happy to know that the 2016 Honda Accord is offered with a long list of innovative safety features, including driver-assistance, active safety, and passive safety features. Available safety features like Honda Sensing™, Honda's suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, is one of the most comprehensive driver-alert packages offered in the industry today. While Chevy's 2016 Malibu is also offered with driver assist technologies, you often have to upgrade to one of the most expensive models in the lineup to get similar features. Honda allows sedan shoppers to add these crucial safety features onto nearly any Accord model, making the Accord a great choice for drivers or families who want the latest safety technologies without paying for a fully-loaded sedan model. The 2016 Accord's Multi-Angle Rearview Camera provides drivers with a better view of what is behind, thanks to its three different angles: normal, top-down, and wide. Additional safety features that are available on 2016 Accord models include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow (ACC)
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Lane departure warning system
  • Lane keeping assist system
  • Lane sway warning system
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Radar- or camera-based collision preparation system
  • Automatic braking, high-speed or partial
  • Forward collision warning

Safety Ratings

Both the 2016 Accord and Malibu mid-size sedans offer a nice list of standard safety features, and both achieved high scores in crash tests performed by the NHTSA. However, the NHTSA has awarded the 2016 Honda Accord with the highest, 5-Star Overall Crash Test Rating -- across the board! The Malibu, to its credit, also received a number of 5-Star individual ratings, but only managed four stars in the NHTSA's Front Passenger Crash Test and Rollover Safety Rating. So if you are looking for a vehicle that has received a perfect 5-Star rating for safety, the choice is clear: the 2016 Honda Accord!
