The Chrysler 300 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus ES 300h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 300h, the Chrysler 300 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.
With the Lexus ES 300h you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chrysler 300, due to its tank size and fuel economy.
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 Lexus ES 300h. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chrysler 300 will cost more in transportation costs than the Lexus ES 300h.
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Lexus ES 300h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chrysler 300, which is slightly longer than the Lexus ES 300h.
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chrysler 300 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 300h.
The Chrysler 300 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus ES 300h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 300 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus ES 300h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300 and the Lexus ES 300h. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chrysler 300 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus ES 300h.
The basic warranty of the Chrysler 300 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus ES 300h.
