The 300, a mainstay of Chrysler's lineup since 2005, is a large sedan with seating up to 5. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it bypasses mud and snow with ease. It has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. The Chrysler 300 has some real zest, surpassing typical horsepower for its class. Chrysler offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2020 Chrysler 300 is average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2020 Chrysler 300 has a score of 82, implying a 0.04% chance of driver death (3.5% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.037%, and the chance of injury falls to 3.3%.

We estimate that the 2020 Chrysler 300 has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0396% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.5257%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0396% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.5257% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2020 Chrysler 300 is 15% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2020 Chrysler 300 is 21% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

2020 Chrysler 300 offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 8%.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
