Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chrysler 300 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Subaru Legacy. The Subaru Legacy will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 300.

Convenience
With the Subaru Legacy you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chrysler 300, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Subaru Legacy. 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 Subaru Legacy.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Subaru Legacy, 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 Subaru Legacy.

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 Subaru Legacy.

Handling
The Chrysler 300 has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Legacy, 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 Subaru Legacy. 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 Subaru Legacy. The Chrysler 300 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Subaru Legacy.

Warranty
The Chrysler 300 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Legacy.
