Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 300C than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 300C.

Convenience

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). The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 is somewhat more expensive than the Chrysler 300C. 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 BMW ActiveHybrid 3 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chrysler 300C.

Dimensions

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Chrysler 300C.

Handling
The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 has a smaller turning radius than the Chrysler 300C, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 and the Chrysler 300C. The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 has significantly less cargo room than the Chrysler 300C, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
