2015 Chrysler 300 vs. 2015 Kia Cadenza Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 300 than the Kia Cadenza. The Kia Cadenza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 300.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chrysler 300 as you will with the Kia Cadenza, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chrysler 300 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Cadenza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chrysler 300 is much higher than that for the Kia Cadenza.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Kia Cadenza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chrysler 300 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Cadenza.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chrysler 300 and the Kia Cadenza do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Chrysler 300 has a larger turning radius than the Kia Cadenza, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Chrysler 300 and the Kia Cadenza.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300 and the Kia Cadenza. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chrysler 300 as you will in the Kia Cadenza.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chrysler 300 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Cadenza.
