The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
If it’s a certain retro appeal you’re after in a four-door sedan, few vehicles can compete with the moderately priced 2020 Chrysler 300. The 2020 Nissan Maxima is a handsome, relatively sporty sedan in an era when fewer people than ever are interested in one.
