Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chrysler 300 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Avalon Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, the Chrysler 300 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Toyota Avalon Hybrid 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chrysler 300 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300 is much wider than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chrysler 300 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Handling
The Chrysler 300 has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 300 has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300 and the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chrysler 300 as you will in the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Warranty
The Chrysler 300 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.
