Despite the obvious size difference, the 2017 Ford Taurus and the Chevy Malibu have a lot in common. Both are well-respected sedans that seat five designed with both comfort and style in mind. The Taurus comes better equipped than the Malibu at the base trim level offering standard equipment such as Bluetooth connectivity, power seats and alloy wheels that the Malibu can't match. In addition, you get to enjoy greater front hip room, front leg room, rear hip room, rear head room and cargo capacity when you choose the Taurus over the Malibu.

2017 Ford Taurus vs. Chevrolet Malibu: Performance Facts

The 2017 Ford Taurus is equipped with a powerful V6 engine at the base trim level that easily outdoes the turbocharged 4-cylinder found in the entry-level Malibu when it comes to horsepower and torque. A six-speed shiftable automatic is standard at the base trim level of both sedans as well as front-wheel drive. The Malibu offers a beefier turbo 4-cylinder engine at upper trim levels, but it can't compete with the turbo 6-cylinder and 9-speed transmission offered in select trim levels of the Taurus. You also have the option of all-wheel drive in upper trim levels of the Taurus, a feature not found in any 2017 Malibu.
