Chevrolet Malibu 2.4 LTZ (A) vs Volkswagen Passat 1.8 TSI DSG (A)
Tracking the treacherous waters in the family sedan segment, the Malibu seems well-prepared to live its dreams even when faced with the German Passat.

Unimpressed `
Thought to give it a shot during car shopping. It is by no means a bad car ... But it is extremely boring. Just did not get any feel on the car ... Nothing was bad but nothing was great.

Reasonably priced family Car at it's price `
Review done on 1.8T model. Gotten this car as a replacement for the Jetta at discounted price. improvement of ride comfort can be felt from the moment the car moves off. VW threw in loads of features into local this unit. Nice family car to ferry passengers in comfort over long distance.

The PASSAT @ 1.4L TSI. `
Test driven the 1.8L sometime back (can search in my past review for this model). Sometime back, went to see this 1.4L baby....it caught me by surprised that not just the features are captivating, the engine is also too... The drive was AWESOME...a 1.4L with superb performance in strength where you can literately forgo getting the bigger capacity (save you on road tax and COE as this belongs to CAT A car). Interior was nice, features like PARK ASSIST is something new to me which if I can't remember if the earlier 1.8L I tried does come with it...but it was accurate and good to use for parking. Its interior is definately comparable to an others which features too and comes with the kick boot open and its good to have like electronic parking brakes, etc... The drive was fantastic, despite many say DSG having issues on and off....but I do find the POWER in it which runs like any other 2.0L on the road. Overtaking was soooo easy, which initially when I tried on the test roads, I slam on the throttle, it roars to life and swiftly overtakes the 2 x cars in front along the route. Cornering had no issues too, although cannot compare to its younger sibling, the Golf which is designed to be. Additionals like sunroof or white xenon lights are optional but costs are much more affordable, comparing to brands like Merz, BMW or even Audi. This is a good alternative to Lexus GS series, BMW 5 Series, Audi A6s or even Mercedes E class in terms of price, capacity (which saves you on fuel and taxes, not just COE alone) and many others which serves as a spacious, comfortable and good looking family and business cars out there.

A reasonably well designed and decent ride. `
Sold off my 523i for this machine. Although I must agree that the drive feel is different, for the price, I thought it was good. Whatever features the 523 has, the Passat has them as well (oh well, less the auto folding mirror). Front ventilation zircon cooling seats (both driver and front passenger) is awesome in hot days. A real fuel saver (city driving of 11km / liter) and combined (13-15km/liter). What else can we ask for? 1390cc engine supporting a size equivalent to a 523i (only 5cm shorter). With the soaring fuel prices, this car is one of the answer for the need of big cars with small cars' consumption.
