Pictured: 2016 Chrysler 300
The 300, part of Chrysler's lineup since 2005, is a large sedan with seating up to 5. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it bypasses mud and snow with ease. Having more than average horsepower for its class, the 300 packs some oomph. Chrysler offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2022 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 2022 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 2022 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 2022 Chrysler 300 is 15% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2022 Chrysler 300 is 21% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

2022 Chrysler 300 offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 8%.

Active safety features can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2022 Chrysler 300: Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning (FCW) with Active Braking & Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking System. One recommended safety feature is optional on the 2022 Chrysler 300--- although it adds to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM).

Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Chrysler 300. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
