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 300 than the Acura TLX. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chrysler 300 and the Acura TLX 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 Acura TLX, 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 Acura TLX. 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 Acura TLX.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Acura TLX, 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 300, which is slightly longer than the Acura TLX.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chrysler 300 and the Acura TLX do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Chrysler 300 has about the same turning radius as the Acura TLX, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chrysler 300 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Acura TLX.
