2014 Chrysler 300C vs. 2015 Volkswagen CC 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 Volkswagen CC. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen CC, the Chrysler 300C may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chrysler 300C as you will with the Volkswagen CC, 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). The Chrysler 300C is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen CC. 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 300C is much higher than that for the Volkswagen CC.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300C is much wider than the Volkswagen CC, 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 300C, which is slightly longer than the Volkswagen CC.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 300C has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen CC. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
The Chrysler 300C comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen CC.
