Building on six decades of elegant American design, the 2015 Chrysler 300 further enhances the iconic proportions and powerful presence of the big, bold American sedan. A prominent front grille stands as a trophy of American style and stands as a tribute to the stand-apart shape that set the pace 60 years ago. The sedans side profile maintains a head turning silhouette, combining a low roofline and high waist that meets distinctive rear LED tail lamps to provide a highly defined bold red glow that accentuates a chiselled rear design.
Inside the Chrysler 300 passengers will be immersed in a sophisticated blend of the finest craftsmanship, hand-sculpted fluid shapes, innovative material choices and state-of-the-art technology. Deep quilted Nappa leather-trimmed seats and door bolsters are the hallmark of the 300C Luxury model, finished in an inspiring indigo and linen colourway. The newest Chrysler sedan rewards its passengers with provocative style and material combinations once limited to the privileged few.
Each 300 model features Chrysler’s awarded 8.4-inch UConnect system operable via voice recognition or simply tap large, easy-to-use icons featured on the user-friendly colour touchscreen display. UConnect excels in delivering a multi-function interface for digital radio (DAB+), navigation and Bluetooth phone whilst managing dual-zone climate, available comfort systems including heated and ventilated seats and personal audio (Bluetooth, USB, SD card, AUX) controls.
An all new 7-inch driver-interactive full-colour display is strategically housed within the instrument cluster, integrated seamlessly alongside blue backlit, timeless analogue instruments. This digital display presents audio, speed and cruise controls, trip computer, vehicle information, real-time fuel economy, turn-by-turn navigation* and driver assistance warnings such as ParkSense front and rear park assist all customisable via intuitive steering wheel mounted controls.
*Turn-by-turn navigation applicable to 300C, 300C Luxury and SRT model variants only.
