Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 300 than the Audi A4, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chrysler 300 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A4 as you will with the Chrysler 300, 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 Audi A4 is somewhat more expensive than the Chrysler 300. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chrysler 300.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A4 is much slimmer than the Chrysler 300, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Audi A4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chrysler 300.

Handling
The Audi A4 has a smaller turning radius than the Chrysler 300, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A4 is significantly less powerful than the Chrysler 300. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chrysler 300.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A4 and the Chrysler 300. The Audi A4 has significantly less cargo room than the Chrysler 300, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi A4 than that of the Chrysler 300.
