Background
The Chrysler 300C is like a Merc E-class laced with Americana. That whopping grille, butch Yankee style and Daimler-sourced hardware make this the best Chrysler on sale today. For more information on the Chrysler 300C, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec road test
It's big, but is it bad? Well, that depends. If you're looking for something with a serious amount of attitude, near S-Class space and surprisingly decent refinement, then the Chrysler 300C could be for you. Details such as triple door seals and insulated wheel-arches mean this is one quiet cruiser. Unfortunately, the suspension doesn't carry through on that luxury promise, proving neither cossetting enough on the motorway nor controlled enough to keep the weight in check during spirited cornering. Nose-heavy and laboured with unnaturally calibrated electric power steering, you'll quickly lose interest in driving the 300C quickly. Instead, enjoy the engagingly credible touchscreen infotainment system, generous rear legroom and the outside lane-clearing external presence. We know you've always wanted to be a gangster.
