Materials used inside the Luxury Series are not only top of the line, but it’s what separates this vehicle from its siblings. Elegant leather trim covers much of the spacious interior. And, like all 300s, the space inside the cabin is ample – to say the least. Optional features are also plentiful, and include all-wheel drive (rear-wheel drive is standard).
Driving the 300C is fairly similar to driving the base model. While the comfortable interior is far nicer, the driving experience outside the car is almost identical. The powerful V6 has more power than one might guess and it is easy to forget that the car does not contain a larger V8 engine.
In many ways, the 300C is much like driving a large European import. The suspension system handles difficult city terrain with ease while the larger 20-inch wheels create a firm ride, but it’s not quite as smooth as some of the more expensive luxury sedans.
Safety is paramount with the 300C, and Chrysler earned five-star ratings in government testing in overall crash protection and front and side-impact protection. Standard safety features include traction and stability control, front and side curtain airbags, and a driver knee airbag. An optional SafetyTec package bolsters the 300 with a blind-sport warning system and a collision warning system.
