Here’s Why to Consider the 2022 Chevy Malibu Over the 2022 Nissan Altima
What a 2022 Malibu Offers Over a 2022 Altima
If you’re in the market for a capable sedan packed with comfortable amenities and a delectable technology suite, both the 2022 Malibu and 2022 Altima are compelling contenders. Either is a good choice when it comes to aesthetics, with a Midnight Edition equipping these sedans with sleek black styling and elegant interior flourishes, just as either offers a trim level to fit your budget. But, of course, choosing which vehicle is right for you comes down to what they do differently, and that’s exactly what we intend to expound on in this comparison. Let’s dig into the differences between the 2022 Malibu and the 2022 Altima.
Where the 2022 Malibu and 2022 Altima Differ in Performance & Driving Dynamics
When it comes to performance features, the differences between the Malibu and the Altima might not be glaring, but they are significant enough to have a considerable impact over time. Take, for example, their combined MPG ratings. The LS, RS, & LT trims of the 2022 Malibu all earn a combined MPG of 32. The most fuel-efficient Altima model (the base S trim) also earns 32 combined MPG, but the rest of the Altima models have a lower combined MPG rating, dipping as low as 29 combined MPG.
Also of note, the 2022 Nissan Altima is only available with a continuously-variable transmission (CVT). While a CVT is a respectable option, it won’t suit every driver’s needs. The 2022 Malibu gives you the choice between a fuel-efficient CVT or the traditional driving response of a 9-speed automatic transmission. On the topic of driving dynamics, it’s worth noting that even the lightest 2022 Nissan Altima is still heavier than the heaviest 2022 Malibu model. As a result, you may find the driving experience of the 2022 Malibu to be a bit more enjoyable.

What’s Inside Counts: Comparing the 2022 Malibu Vs. 2022 Altima Interior
Your vehicle’s cabin should be a sanctuary in which you can escape after a long day at work or even during those long drives your excursions entail. An essential part of peace is quiet, and the 2022 Malibu delivers both with a standard acoustic-laminated windshield that reduces noise in the cabin. The 2022 Altima offers available active noise-cancellation, but this system only works when the vehicle is on and is an additional feature that’s not available on every model.
Both the Malibu and the Altima have available heated front seats, but only the Malibu is generous to extend that comfort to the second row with available heated rear outboard seats. Moreover, only the Malibu has available ventilated front seats, too. See the interior of a 2022 Malibu for sale at Chevrolet of Homewood today!
Form Doesn’t Deter Function: Comparing the 2022 Malibu Vs. 2022 Altima Useful Features
It’s a given that your new vehicle should fulfill the basic function of transportation, but what other basic functions should your vehicle be equipped to handle? The litany of situations you’ll find yourself coming across over the lifespan of your vehicle vary drastically, and your new vehicle should be able to contend with them no matter what. That’s why the 2022 Malibu offers more features than you could ever dream of, ensuring it’s got you covered for just about anything. Take, for example, the standard Wi-Fi hotspot capability, available 120-volt power outlet, and available wireless device charging that can be found on a 2022 Malibu but not a 2022 Altima. They may not be your top considerations when looking at your next car, but they sure help secure the 2022 Malibu as your best choice.
