2015 Chrysler 300 vs. 2016 Lexus ES 350 Review

Comparison Review

The Chrysler 300 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus ES 350 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 350, the Chrysler 300 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chrysler 300 as you will with the Lexus ES 350, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 350. 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 350.

Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Lexus ES 350, 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 350.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chrysler 300 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 350.

The Chrysler 300 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus ES 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 300 is somewhat more powerful than the Lexus ES 350.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300 and the Lexus ES 350. The Chrysler 300 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus ES 350.

The basic warranty of the Chrysler 300 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus ES 350.
