2017 Chrysler 300 vs. Its Competition

2017 Chrysler 300
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

Chrysler’s 300 Limited, 300S, and 300C sedans span a wide range of looks, features, and prices, putting them in competition with a wide swath of the market.

The Genesis G80 offers a path to even greater luxury than the 300C Platinum, but in a more generic looking (and feeling) package.

The newly redesigned Buick LaCrosse offers a front-wheel-drive take on full-size luxury in a very appealing package.

The Chevrolet Impala is similar to the LaCrosse, but it's design is a half-generation older.

Nissan's Maxima has an upscale and sporty look and all the modern tech, but it's smaller size gives it mid-size space.

Quick Specs
6.7
With its big footprint, big shoulders, and big V-8 power, the 2017 Chrysler 300 is an aging but charming sedan.
7.2
An excellent chassis and a nice interior mean the LaCrosse should be on your shopping list. At the low end, it represents an excellent value and should be on any full-size sedan buyer's shopping list.
6.5
The 2017 Chevrolet Impala hits the big-car target with handsome lines, composed handling, and on-point connectivity.
7.2
With standard rear-wheel drive and several flavors of V-6 and V-8 power on offer, the 2017 Dodge Charger is a large family sedan with the heart of a proper muscle car.
7.3
The 2017 Nissan Maxima is the wild child of the Nissan bunch. It looks the part, but don't be fooled: after first blush it acts more like a near-luxury cruiser.
8.3
The 2017 Genesis G80 is one of the first new cars from the nascent luxury carmaker, and it's a good leg to stand on.
