2014 Acura TL vs. 2014 Chrysler 300 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 300 than the Acura TL, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura TL and the Chrysler 300 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TL as you will with the Chrysler 300, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Acura TL or the Chrysler 300, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Acura TL will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chrysler 300.

Dimensions
The Acura TL is a little narrower than the Chrysler 300, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Acura TL is slightly shorter than the Chrysler 300, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura TL doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chrysler 300.

Handling
The Acura TL has about the same turning radius as the Chrysler 300, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TL is significantly less powerful than the Chrysler 300. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TL and the Chrysler 300. The Acura TL has significantly less cargo room than the Chrysler 300, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura TL than that of the Chrysler 300.
