Every automaker has a different idea of how to make a luxury car. While neither Chrysler nor Kia or exactly luxury brands, they do have their own top-of-the-line sedans with luxury features. For Chrysler in the 2020 model year, it all comes down to the 300. Kia makes a lot of different sedans, but the 2020 Kia Cadenza is the only one that matches the 300 in a reasonable way.

The 2020 Chrysler 300 calls to mind just about every luxury sedan made by Chrysler in the last nearly two decades with its almost square grille, tanky build, and liberal use of chrome. The 2020 Kia Cadenza looks like exactly what it is, a Kia sedan that has been enhanced with enough luxury features and style adjustments to make it look and feel more luxurious. But how do each of these vehicles do in a side-by-side comparison? The chart below compares the features of the 2020 Chrysler 300 against the 2020 Kia Cadenza.

Analyzing the Differences

Under the hood, the Chrysler 300 tops the Kia Cadenza in every way. And that’s just with the base model engine in the 300. There is a larger engine available in the 300C that far exceeds the V6 from Kia. Unfortunately, the Cadenza offers no alternative engine. The addition of AWD on the 300 makes it an even more obvious choice for most drivers.

A lower MSRP on average means you don’t need to regret getting the more powerful car, because, in this case, you aren’t paying more for more power. Those who would opt for the interior of the Cadenza might be more interested in a true luxury brand anyway. To get power and performance in a luxury package without having to break the bank, choose the 2020 Chrysler 300.
