If you’ve seen the advertisements on TV you would know what I’m talking about. The new Chrysler 300 has launched in Australia and whilst there are similarities between the outgoing 300C and the new model you can tell that the focus is different.
The new 300 is the first in its category to boast an eight-speed automatic transmission, dynamic suspension and a world of safety and security features. The 300 is also available in three different engine variants including petrol (210kW) or diesel (176kW) V6 and a petrol SRT V8 (347kW).
Whilst in the past the 300C had been used to be ‘pimped’ with 26inch chrome wheels and ugly paint, the new model steps it up with real carbon-fibre, wood grain finishes and Nappa leather options. Which we simply love the thought of!
Clyde Campbell (CEO of Fiat Chrysler Group Australia) said “This is the type of legitimate luxury and unflinching performance that Australian motorists desire”
Regarding safety there is a list of features which are nice to see included such are blind spot monitoring side mirrors, ParkSense (parking sensors back and front), adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, ready alert braking, rain brake support and hill start assist.
We look forward to seeing more of this car especially with the list price starting from $43,000 (not including taxes or on road costs).
