2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Chevrolet Malibu near Clinton, MD

2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Chevrolet Malibu near Clinton, MD

Midsize sedans are a fan favorite for a lot of reasons – they’re great for small families, they retain a nice balance of frugality and power, and they come with a wide array of tech! With so many options, it can be difficult to narrow them down, though, so we at Pohanka Honda have put together this comparison between the 2017 Honda Accord vs the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu near Clinton, MD. With any luck, by the end, you’ll have made your decision!

Let’s tackle the topic of engines first. The 2017 Accord offers up two fantastic options, both with a lot of power on reserve. The standard is a 2.4-liter In-Line 4 powerhouse that generates a thrilling 185 horsepower. In comparison, the Malibu only provides 163 horsepower on its standard 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, which may just leave you wanting a little bit extra. Even with the upgraded powertrain options, you’re likely to feel the same way. The Accord offers an outstanding 3.5-liter V6 option, and it pumps out a tremendous 278 horsepower. The Malibu doesn’t offer a V6 engine at all, so you’ll have to settle for the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with a turbocharger, but it still only provides 250 horsepower, coming in far below the Accord.

It’s not a great start for the Malibu in this comparison between the 2017 Honda Accord vs the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu near Clinton, MD, but let’s keep going and see how this pans out. Let’s chat about standard tech features. The Accord comes with a great amount, even on the base trim. You can take advantage of the Bluetooth®1 HandsFreeLink® and Streaming Audio on every trim, as well as Pandora® Compatibility2 and SMS Text Message Function3. Plus, the Speed-Sensitive Volume Control is perfect for people who travel between city and highway driving.

When it comes to the tech on the base Chevy Malibu, you might be disappointed, especially after taking gander at the Accord. It boasts an AM/FM radio. That’s it. If you want even basic Bluetooth®4 connection, you’ll have to pay more for a higher trim.

We at Pohanka Honda don’t think there’s much more that needs to be said in this comparison between the 2017 Honda Accord vs the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu near Clinton, MD. The clear reigning champ is the Accord, and we’ve got this spectacular midsize sedan on our lot right now! Head on over to 1772 Ritchie Station Court in Capital Heights, MD, to take the Accord for a test drive today!

Wow!!!!! I've been to many car dealerships but POHANKA put them all to shame. The team we worked with never made us feel intimidated or pressured for one minute. The level of hospitality was awesome. We were offered freshly brewed coffee and water. The Rep we had was so young he looked like he just got out of high school. We were his first customer/encounter. I will be buying my next car from Pohanka!!!!

Initially , I was livid when coming to get my vehicle serviced to get my vehicle serviced for a new rim & tire . I got the most terrible customer service from the representative Don , he had no interest in helping me and was not knowledgable about transportation for me to get to the rental company nearby, ( called myself got in touch within seconds) unclear communication between him and the parts service manager. I was completely disgruntled until returning the following day with my father, we were fortunate to get to interact with Horace who literally saved the day and wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty and actually observed what was going on with my vehicle , and made me aware that another tire was going ball (no he didn't up sell me ,because I already knew I needed them replaced being that my mechanic let me know the last time I went for routine maintenance) I literally just wanted to work with someone with simple emotional intelligence & that could assist me swiftly. Horace was the guy. He kept in contact with me the entire time my vehicle was being serviced and kept me posted with any updates up until my car was ready. I'm truly satisfied & happy my warranty covered one of my tires and I was able to replace the other, at little to no cost.

They're really enthusiastic about selling their electric cars! They have a special program for low income customers and will work with you to get you in one. Good deal for $30,000 if you can afford it! Good luck!

My overall experience was very good. Gabrielle Willis was our sales consultant, we started with email communication, and she impressed me as being very friendly, always responsive and eager to work things out, and we reached an initial agreement quickly via email. Gabby picked me up at the metro station, and she was very pleasant to interact with. In addition, Gabbi was very patient, knowledgeable and informative, and she explained things in detail, answered all of my questions. Gabbi followed up afterwards with an email to make sure that I was satisfied, and to see if I had any additional questions. Gabbi did an excellent job with her customers, and I would recommend her to anyone.

I went to this dealership 22Sept2019 to get 4-wheel alignment for our car. As soon as I got there, Ms. Sarah Carpenter, our service advisor came and approached us with cordiality. When it comes to her job, I would describe her as hospitable and professional.
