The Honda Fit, otherwise known as Jazz in the global market, continues to be one of the most desirable small hatchbacks thanks to its excellent fuel economy and Honda’s long-standing reputation for quality and reliability.

The Chevrolet Malibu sedan received a complete redesign in 2013. It became more stylish and economical, making the model more attractive in the large sedan class. The Chevrolet automaker also added a new Eco mode for the 2.4-liter gasoline engine with MHEV technology. The result is acceleration to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 8.5 seconds and gasoline consumption of 30 MPG (8.0 l/100 km) in the mixed cycle. Other engine options included a 2.5-liter gasoline engine (200 hp) and a 2.0-liter turbo engine with 260 hp.
According to RepairPal, the 2013 Malibu is repaired less frequently than the average car in the United States. That is why this 4-door Chevy received a good reliability score of 4.0 out of 5.0, making it 9th place among 24 cars. The Malibu also performed well in the J.D. Power reliability rating, scoring 84/100. Today, the purchase of a used 2014 Chevrolet Malibu will cost about $6,400 in the US.
