2014 Chrysler 300C vs. 2015 Subaru WRX STI 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 300C than the Subaru WRX STI. The Subaru WRX STI 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 Chrysler 300C is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru WRX STI.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Chrysler 300C doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Subaru WRX STI.
