Pros & Cons
Spacious, upscale interior
User-friendly infotainment system
300 Crash Test Results
The 2019 Chrysler 300 earned a four-star overall crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
300 Safety Features
The 300 comes standard with a rearview camera. Available driver assistance features include blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control.
300 Engine: The V8's Pretty Great
You have two powerful engine options in the 300: a 292-horsepower V6 (300 horsepower in the 300S model) or a 363-horsepower V8. Both engines move this car well, and the base V6 has ample power for most drivers. However, the V8 delivers noticeably more potent acceleration, and buyers looking for the most enjoyable driving experience should strongly consider it.
300 Gas Mileage: Decent Ratings for a Large Car
This Chrysler sedan gets 19 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway with its V6 engine. Many rivals earn similar ratings. In fact, the 300 gets nearly identical gas mileage to the V6-powered Chevrolet Impala and Dodge Charger.
300 Ride and Handling: See for Yourself
The 300 features a somewhat stiff suspension, but it still rides smoothly. Opinions are split about this car’s handling. Some critics think it fares well on winding roads despite its size, but others say it feels unwieldy
How Many People Does the 300 Seat?
The 300 seats five people. Both rows of seats have plenty of space for adults to ride comfortably, and it's easy to get in and out of the car. However, the seats aren't as supportive as in some rivals, and thick roof pillars limit visibility.
300 and Car Seats
The 300 comes with three full sets of LATCH car-seat connectors. The system earns an ease-of-use rating of Acceptable (the second-highest rating) from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
300 Interior Quality
The 300 feels almost like a German luxury sedan inside. It looks good, remains quiet even at highway speeds, and uses top-notch materials throughout.
300 Cargo Space
With more than 16 cubic feet of trunk space, the 300 gives you enough room for the whole family's vacation luggage or four sets of golf clubs.
300 Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation
The 300 comes standard with the Uconnect infotainment system that includes an 8.4-inch touch screen, a six-speaker audio system, satellite radio, Bluetooth, two USB ports, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. A panoramic sunroof, navigation, and two premium audio systems are available.
The Uconnect infotainment system is intuitive and responsive, making it one of the most user-friendly systems out there. There's not much of a learning curve, and there are redundant physical controls in addition to the touch screen.
