Whether you’re commuting to Chicago or taking your family around Downers Grove or La Grange, a midsize sedan remains one of the most popular and sensible choices out there. The 2017 Volkswagen Passat and 2018 Chevrolet Malibu are two strong choices, though the Passat wins out over the Malibu in several important categories. Utilize this comparison guide to make the decision easier for you, and count on Autobarn VW of Countryside when you’re ready for a test drive.
The 2018 Chevy Malibu’s base powertrain setup is a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder with a six-speed automatic, and it makes only 160 hp. There’s also a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine with a nine-speed automatic, but it falls short of the Passat’s V6 with a total output of just 250 hp.
From its confident German performance specs to its premier European cabin, the 2017 VW Passat is an excellent choice for a midsize car.
