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

Convenience
The Hyundai Sonata requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chrysler 300, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Chrysler 300 is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Sonata. 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 Hyundai Sonata.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Hyundai Sonata, 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 Hyundai Sonata.

Handling
The Chrysler 300 has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Sonata, 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 Hyundai Sonata. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
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 Hyundai Sonata.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300 and the Hyundai Sonata.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chrysler 300 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Sonata.
