2016 Chrysler 300 vs. 2017 Toyota Avalon Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chrysler 300 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota Avalon. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chrysler 300 and the Toyota Avalon in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chrysler 300 as you will with the Toyota Avalon, 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 Toyota Avalon. 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 Toyota Avalon.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Toyota Avalon, 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 Toyota Avalon.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chrysler 300 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Avalon.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 300 is somewhat more powerful than the Toyota Avalon.

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

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