This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The Mirai doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Malibu Hybrid is 2.1 inches wider in the front and 1.5 inches wider in the rear than on the Mirai.

The Malibu Hybrid has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Mirai doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

The power windows standard on both the Malibu Hybrid and the Mirai have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the Malibu Hybrid is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The Mirai prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.
