2018 Chrysler 300 Walk Around


Although its shape might be close to timeless, the Chrysler 300 might be deemed either beautiful or excessively blocky and squared-off. Either way, it flaunts an elegantly upright, if laid-back, silhouette.

Body metal has a brawny but well-tailored, distinguished look, helped by wide, square shoulders. A simple rectangular grille integrates fully into the near-classic profile.

Visually, the 300 hasn’t changed much since introduction as a 2005 model. The crisp long-nose/short-deck design has held up especially well. Exuding an air of sophisticated confidence, it represents a careful blend of angles and rounded corners. Chrysler 300S models get blacked-out body trim.

Interior

Richly detailed yet somber in base form, the 300’s cabin gets a warmer, higher-end look in upper models. That’s especially true when fitted with natural wood trim and quilted leather. Designed with organic shapes and smooth curves, the cabin is admirably roomy.

Front passengers get ample head and leg space. Seats with wide bottom cushions and supportive seatbacks are suitable for riders with bigger bodies. Upper-trim models offer particularly good support.

Legroom is skimpier in back, more like a midsize sedan than a full-size. Three moderate-size passengers can occupy the rear seat. Upper trim levels get opulent sport seats that practically cradle one’s body.

Base trim translates to hard plastic trim, but more costly models move up to subdued metallic trim and naturally finished wood. Materials reach a premium pinnacle in 300C and 300S sedans. Excellent infotainment systems interface with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The trunk holds 16.3 cubic feet.
