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 BMW 330. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chrysler 300 and the BMW 330 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 BMW 330, 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 BMW 330. 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 BMW 330.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the BMW 330, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chrysler 300, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 330.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Chrysler 300 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 330.

Handling
The Chrysler 300 has a larger turning radius than the BMW 330, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 300 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 330. 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 300 and the BMW 330. The Chrysler 300 has less cargo capacity than the BMW 330, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chrysler 300 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the BMW 330.
