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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chrysler 300 as you will with the Nissan Maxima, 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 Nissan Maxima. 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 Nissan Maxima.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Nissan Maxima, 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 Nissan Maxima.

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

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

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

Warranty
The Chrysler 300 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Maxima.
