The Ford Fusion or the Chevy Malibu? Three Big Differences Between Two Popular Sedans


Ford and Chevrolet are two American car companies that have been around for a long time, amassing a loyal fan base and creating popular cars, trucks, and SUVs. When it comes to roomy, four-door sedans from Chevy and Ford, drivers turn toward either the Ford Fusion, or the Chevy Malibu.

While we here at Art Hill Ford know that both have a lot to offer Indiana drivers, we also know that, when it comes down to it, the Ford Fusion comes out ahead in several key areas.

In order to illustrate just how the Ford Fusion is the better car when compared to the Chevy Malibu, we've put together a side-by-side comparison of these two similar-but-different sedans.

Here are three of our top ways in which the Ford outshines the Chevy:

  1. All-Wheel Drive. All-wheel drive in a four-door sedan is rare. All-wheel drive in a sedan that's not a high-end luxury brand with a hefty price tag is even more rare. But, the Ford Fusion is that rare model that has all-wheel drive available, on its trim, the Ford Fusion V6 Sport. The Chevy Malibu doesn't have an all-wheel drive option anywhere in its lineup.
  2. Hybrid options. Both the Chevy Malibu and the Ford Fusion come in an assortment of powertrains for drivers to choose from. Not only do they offer a couple of gas-powered engine options, they also both have a traditional gas / electric hybrid option. However, the Ford Fusion has more options in the mix than the Malibu, with a plug-in hybrid version, known as the Ford Fusion Energi, which allows you to go further on just electric power alone.
  3. Space. These two sedans are similarly sized, however, the Fusion offers a little more room all around than the Malibu. There's more cargo space, more headroom, more elbow room, and more legroom, especially for passengers in the front seat.
