The Taurus and Charger all start in the high twenties while the 300, Azera, and Avalon start at a higher price. So maybe not direct competitors but I can guarantee you the Malibu is positioned to be the true Camry/Accord competitor by Chevrolet themselves.
And Avalon is still a cut above a Tauras. But I have to say, if Chevy is offering a coarse sounding I4, then the car really competes with both a Camry and to some extent an Avalon.

And Avalon is up actually in January YoY by decent amount (10%). It just shows that it is important that actual car is good.
Avalon sales may have been flat, but it costed Toyota triple the amount of incentives to keep the sales at that level.
