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 Ford Fusion Energi. The Ford Fusion Energi will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 300.

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). Whether you pick the Chrysler 300 or the Ford Fusion Energi, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Ford Fusion Energi.

The Chrysler 300 is about the same width as the Ford Fusion Energi. 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 Ford Fusion Energi.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chrysler 300 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Ford Fusion Energi.

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

Performance
