2014 Lexus GS 350 vs. 2014 Chrysler 300C Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 300C than the Lexus GS 350, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus GS 350 and the Chrysler 300C in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus GS 350 as you will with the Chrysler 300C, 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 Lexus GS 350 is somewhat more expensive than the Chrysler 300C. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Lexus GS 350 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chrysler 300C.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus GS 350 is much slimmer than the Chrysler 300C, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Lexus GS 350 is slightly shorter than the Chrysler 300C, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Lexus GS 350 has a smaller turning radius than the Chrysler 300C, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Lexus GS 350 has less horsepower than the Chrysler 300C, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus GS 350 and the Chrysler 300C. The Lexus GS 350 has less cargo capacity than the Chrysler 300C, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus GS 350 than that of the Chrysler 300C.
