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 Mazda Mazda6. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chrysler 300 and the Mazda Mazda6 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 Mazda Mazda6, 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 Chrysler 300 is somewhat more expensive than the Mazda Mazda6. 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 Mazda Mazda6.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Mazda Mazda6, 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 Mazda Mazda6.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Chrysler 300 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mazda Mazda6.

Handling
The Chrysler 300 has a larger turning radius than the Mazda Mazda6, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 300 is somewhat more powerful than the Mazda Mazda6.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300 and the Mazda Mazda6. The Chrysler 300 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mazda Mazda6.

Warranty
The Chrysler 300 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda Mazda6.
