The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chrysler 300 adds more style, features, and efficiency to an already confident, capable large family sedan. The 2014 Nissan Maxima isn't the enthusiast car it claims to be, but it is a more luxurious, more stylish option than many of its competitors.
