2017 Toyota Camry vs 2017 Chevy Malibu near Romeoville, IL

There’s nothing quite like finding the ideal midsize sedan, and we at Thomas Toyota of Joliet are here to help. For your convenience, we put together a comparison of two of the top sedans currently in the segment: the 2017 Toyota Camry vs 2017 Chevy Malibu near Romeoville, IL. In more ways than one, you can see just how the 2017 Camry comes out on top.

While both sedans offer two engine options for you to choose from, the Malibu struggles to keep up with the Camry’s ratings. The standard 2.5L 4-cylinder powertrain in the Toyota Camry delivers 178 horsepower, while the Malibu’s standard 1.5L 4-cylinder engine cranks out just 163 horsepower. The next powerhouse option for the Camry is the 3.5L V6 that expels 268 horsepower; the Chevrolet Malibu, once again, doesn’t come close with its offering of just 250 horsepower from its available 2.0L 4-cylinder engine.

In terms of features offered, the Camry continues to maintain its lead. As a standard amenity, the Toyota Camry comes equipped with a backup camera1. This feature provides you with additional peace of mind while performing backing up maneuvers, whether you’re simply reversing out of your driveway or a crowded parking lot, you'll be shown a live-feed of your rear surroundings on the center touchscreen. We find out in this battle of the 2017 Toyota Camry vs 2017 Chevy Malibu near Romeoville, that if you’re in the Chevy Malibu, you’ll only be able to acquire this feature in its top trims.

Additionally, a feature that is offered in the Camry, but not in the Malibu, is wireless charging2. In a time where smartphones are a must, Toyota engineers outfitted this midsize sedan with one of the most convenient and sought after amenities. Placed near the center console, right at hand, you’ll be able to charge your compatible device while on the road. Likewise, the 2017 Camry comes standard with a USB port3, which can provide you with audio streaming or device charging. Unfortunately, the 2017 Malibu does not offer a USB port4 as standard.

We at Thomas Toyota of Joliet think the clear winner in this comparison of the 2017 Toyota Camry vs 2017 Chevy Malibu near Romeoville, IL, is the Camry! Come on down to our dealership, located at 1437 North Larkin Avenue in Joliet, IL, to get a firsthand look at this midsize sedan!
