2015 Chrysler 300 review
Exterior styling changed a lot with new taillights, new grille, that comes with brand new texture and redesigned headlights. lower parts of the grille and headlights are wrapped with chrome mobious strip that couldn’t be seen on some previous models. Another new thing is the design of the rear spoiler which makes this vehicle look more sporty. There is wide variety of colors and wheels to choose, wheels go from 17 to 20 inch alloys.
2015 Chrysler 300 interior changed to the better. New more quality materials are introduced together with more wood and chrome inserts that makes this vehicle’s cabin look a lot a like a cabin of some Lexus, Bentley or some other luxury sedan of similar size.
There’s also a lot more hi tech installed inside the cabin, starting from 7 inch touch screen display for the Uconnect infotainment system. This model’s interior design comes in few themes named after bigger and smaller cities from United States, like: Detroit, Manhattan, La Solla, Sausalito etc.
