2020 Chrysler 300 Review

Don't come to the Chrysler 300 looking for politeness. This is a big, bold sedan in the classic sense, exuding refinement and comfort while sneering at modern trends like lightweight construction and dynamic handling. The 300 is heavy, powerful, quiet and smooth on the road.

That isn't to say that the Chrysler 300 is behind the times. Rear-wheel-drive models with the V6 engine are EPA-rated up to 30 mpg on the highway. And the standard Uconnect infotainment system is one of the best you can buy. But what really sets the 300 apart is its attitude, as evidenced by a bold front grille, extremely roomy interior and available 363-horsepower V8.

There is a nice balance of new and old in the Chrysler 300. The car has integrated technology and higher-quality materials over the years to keep pace with fresher competitors. It's a survivor among large sedans and a worthy candidate for buyers who still like feeling some muscle beneath their feet.

Edmunds’ Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team

Our verdict

7.6 / 10
There is nothing small about the Chrysler 300. It's a large sedan in nearly every sense of the word, with a spacious upscale interior, a long wheelbase for a smooth ride, and muscular engines to move more than two tons of mass. Top it all off with an in-your-face design and the only thing that is quiet about the 300 is its almost total lack of noise on the road.

How does it drive?

7.5
The 300 is built for smooth and powerful cruising, and it hits its marks. The optional Hemi V8 muscles the big sedan forward without drama, but lean into it with gusto and you'll be met with a rumbling exhaust note and powerful thrust. An eight-speed automatic transmission offers crisp and clean shifts, and some models come with paddles to take over when you like.

This isn't a sport sedan, even in taut 300S guise, but it does handle athletic tests well. The brake pedal is responsive with plenty of stopping power. The steering is light and easy to turn at low speeds and firms up at highway speeds to give you a better feel of heft. However, on tight turns the 300 makes its mass felt, even with a stiffened suspension and sticky tires on the 300S version.

How comfortable is it?

8.0
Chrysler delivers on its premium, near-luxury promise inside the cabin. Very little road noise, and only slightly more from the wind, is apparent when the 300 is rolling along. The climate control system works impressively fast and is easy to operate through the main controls. The seats are also plush and supportive, and even sportier 300S versions prioritize comfort.

Overall, though, the ride is more stiff than you might expect. Our 300S test car had a suspension that couldn't quite keep rough roads out of the interior. Yet it doesn't detract from an otherwise serene drive, and we expect non-300S models handle bumps more effectively.

How’s the interior?

8.0
The 300 sometimes feels like more of a house than a car. Interior space is massive and one of the main reasons to consider purchasing one. Five passengers fit easily and four fit like kings. The big door openings and a flat roofline make it easy to slide in and out. It offers a huge array of seat and steering wheel adjustments to accommodate drivers of all shapes and sizes.

Big sedans unfortunately come with big blind spots. The high shoulder line and large pillars are difficult to see around, especially when looking out the rear. Lane changes should be made with care. Thank goodness for a clear and crisp standard rearview camera.

How’s the tech?

8.0
The factory navigation system is easy to use with simple graphics, if you opt for it. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is standard, if you don't. The nine-speaker Alpine audio system is an add-on, and it provides plenty of thump and better bass tuning than previous versions.

Advanced safety features such as blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are helpful, and additional features such as front and rear parking sensors, lane departure and lane keeping assist are available in packages. Available voice controls are fairly rudimentary but effective, and tech features such as remote start, car finder and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot are optional as well.

How’s the storage?

7.5
Chrysler made good use of available space in the 300. Room in the trunk, at 16.3 cubic feet, is very good for the class, especially considering the rear-drive hardware underneath. The trunk is slightly narrow between the wheels, but otherwise it's a standout in the big-sedan class. Interior storage is also good, with plenty of cupholders and a wide center console hold that's perfect for small items.

The back seats fold down in a 60/40-split and have easy-to-access anchor points for child car seats. Larger rear-facing child seats should be no problem to install because there is so much space between the rear seats and the front. You can even get three of them side by side, and the big door openings make installation a snap.

How economical is it?

6.0
The 300S with V8 is rated at 19 mpg (16 city/25 highway) by the EPA. We averaged 17 mpg in our combined testing miles, with an 18.6 mpg average on our highway-heavy evaluation loop that should have returned a result in the low 20s.

Is it a good value?

7.0
The 300's interior is solidly built. Chrysler paid a lot of attention to fit and finish, and the quality of the materials is also pleasing. But the pricing can run uncomfortably high, especially if you get the V8 and a bunch of optional features. At that point, you might consider getting a luxury-branded sedan. Chrysler's warranty coverage is average.

Wildcard

7.5
The 300 is a fashion statement. Updated very little since 2004, it's an abnormally timeless design in an industry that changes drastically every few years. It backs up that classic look with a focus on classic fast and smooth performance. You do have to choose between the too-hard 300S or the other too-soft versions, but the 300 makes up for it with a combination of airtight luxury and intoxicating style.

Which 300 does Edmunds recommend?

Lean into the 300's strengths as a luxury-focused sedan with the Limited trim, which comes with heated front and rear leather-trimmed seats, a premium six-speaker stereo system and chrome — lots of chrome. Outward visibility is sometimes a challenge, so consider adding the SafetyTec Plus package with advanced safety equipment and adaptive cruise control.

Chrysler 300 models

The Chrysler 300 is a large four-door sedan with seating for five passengers. It comes in five trims: Touring, Touring L, 300S, Limited and 300C. A 3.6-liter V6 engine (292 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque) powers the Touring, Touring S and Limited. The 300S gets a slightly upgraded version of the same V6 (300 hp, 264 lb-ft).

The 300C comes with a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 (363 hp, 394 lb-ft), which is also optional on the 300S. All-wheel drive is optional on V6 models, and every 300 comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The base model Touring is equipped with 17-inch wheels, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and eight-way power driver's seat with lumbar support. An 8.4-inch display with Uconnect 4C infotainment is standard, as is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The Touring L adds 18-inch wheels, leather-trimmed seats, a power-adjustable passenger seat, heated front seats and a security alarm. Take either Touring trim up a notch with the Driver Convenience package, which adds 18-inch wheels on the Touring, navigation on the Touring L, and a host of other goodies.

The 300S offers Sport mode, a performance-tuned suspension, and black badging and accents. It also gets paddle shifters, 20-inch wheels, performance tires, sport bucket seats and premium audio. New for the 2020 model year is a Red S Appearance package that includes unique wheels, red inserts on badges, and an optional bright red interior.

Chrome trim abounds in the Limited trim, which also gets a real wood-trimmed interior, a heated wood-and-leather steering wheel, perforated leather seats, ventilated front seats and a heated second row. The top-end 300C adds Hemi V8 power, bigger brakes, platinum finish exterior trim, adaptive bi-xenon headlamps, luxury floor mats, natural-pore wood interior and quilted leather seats.

Chrysler 300 vs. the competition

Chrysler 300 vs. Dodge Charger

Where the 300 emphasizes luxury, the Charger is about cramming as much performance into a package as possible. Two sedans that share an underbody platform could hardly be more different. The Charger struggles with interior quality, fit and finish and comfort -- but the monstrous power on tap from engines all the way up to the mighty Hellcat is more than enough to satiate modern day hot-rodders on a budget.

Compare Chrysler 300 & Dodge Charger features

Chrysler 300 vs. Toyota Avalon

There is an Avalon for nearly every taste, from a hybrid-powered variant to a sport-tuned TRD version. More conventional gas-powered versions are likewise designed to be well-rounded. The Avalon is roomy inside for passengers and provides a comfortable, efficient ride with good balance and handling for the class — part of the reason it's our top-rated large sedan.

Compare Chrysler 300 & Toyota Avalon features

Chrysler 300 vs. Chevrolet Impala

The Chevrolet Impala is a spacious, well-built large sedan that ultimately falls prey to its limitations. It comes standard with a smooth V6 engine and has roomy seating and cargo area. The price is also right, with two well-equipped trims. But it has vague steering, a lack of outward visibility and some desirable features that are only available through additional packages. In short, other sedans are simply more versatile.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Chrysler 300?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
