The Chrysler 300, 300S and 300C sedans find themselves in a unique space for near-luxury sedans, with their muscular design, powerful available engines, rear-wheel-drive layout and luxury-level technology features.
The Hyundai Genesis may be a close alternative, but it's tuned more softly and designed more generically.
The Ford Taurus is primarily front-wheel-drive, but it offers all-wheel drive and a turbocharged SHO version.
Its interior isn't as roomy or sleek, though.
The Buick LaCrosse is more comfort-oriented than the 300, and its mild-hybrid eAssist version earns significantly better fuel economy, too.
The Nissan Maxima looks upscale and sporty, but it's not nearly as engaging behind the wheel, and its technology and safety features have started to show their age.
Finally, there's Chrysler's own Charger, which is the 300's near-twin under the hood, but with more aggressive design and a lower entry price.
