“Unlike many Chrysler products of recent years, this one doesn’t leave us offended or depressed.” The restyled Chrysler flagship sedan is both a handsome and “surprisingly capable” vehicle. Its 292-hp base engine needs to be pushed to maintain highway cruising speeds, but the car has “more than enough oomph” overall. Besides, you can pay for the 363-hp option.

The new 300 is “undeniably a nicer car” than its predecessor, which debuted in 2004. It has “a refined, soft-shouldered look,” upscale amenities like plush leather seats and hands-free voice-command controls, and “composed, confident road manners.” In most every way, it performs “more like a Mercedes than a Chevy.”
The more time we spent in this car, “the more we appreciated the materials, design touches, and build quality.” The 300 is no sport sedan, but it’s a fairly athletic cruiser. The entry-priced 300 in particular is “a lot of car for the money,” featuring innovative driver- and passenger-friendly technology and impressive soundproofing. It’s “among the quietest cars you can buy at any price,” and it’s “a pleasure to drive.”
