Better Standard Safety

The 2020 Toyota Avalon has the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) suite. In it are features like a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, full-speed dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert with steering assist, automatic high beams, and more. It also has adaptive cornering lights, a bird’s-eye-view camera with perimeter scan, intelligent clearance sonar with rear cross-traffic braking, and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The 2020 Chrysler 300 has fewer standard safety features. For example, the Chrysler 300 doesn’t have lane departure warning with lane keeping assist, parking sensors, or adaptive cruise control standard.

Comfort and Visibility

Both sedans are spacious, there’s no two ways about it. You feel like royalty in both vehicles. However, the Chrysler 300 has one glaring flaw when you’re sitting in the cabin: visibility. The shoulder line is uncomfortably high, and the pillars are hard to see around. This makes checking your blind spot sometimes feel like a gamble. On the other hand, the Avalon has tall, wide windows that make for excellent visibility.
