Design & Style

Exterior design for both the models are quite impressive, to say the least. Talking about the interiors, the 2018 Chrysler 300 can seat up to 5 people across two rows. Although comfortable, the front seats don’t have sufficient side support for your liking. The cabin has top-notch materials throughout, giving it a luxurious feel and look. The cargo space is quite sub-standard for its class.

The 2018 Toyota Avalon has a clutter-free interior with plenty of soft-touch materials.  The roomy cabin makes life easier for the drivers and passengers to move around. The well-positioned controls give easy access, and the cargo space is also quite sufficient to accommodate luggage.

Technology & Safety

It also has a couple of USB ports, Bluetooth, satellite radio and a 6-speaker audio system.
