2018 Chrysler 300 vs. Its Competition

2018 Chrysler 300
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

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

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

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 its design is a half-generation older.

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

The 2018 Dodge Charger has aged remarkably well–and if it’s four-door muscle you need, few sedans deliver its performance thrill.
7.0
The 2018 Nissan Maxima is a zippier alternative to more traditional full-size cars, but we stop short of calling it a real sports sedan.
8.3
Plush, safe, and well-equipped, the 2018 Genesis G80 remains a pure luxury sedan, even as rivals get increasingly sporty.
