2016 Chrysler 300

Pros: Hushed cabin; bold looks and unique trim packages; smooth 8-speed transmission

Cons: Despite being astutely updated over the years, basic design feels a bit long in the tooth; rear-seat room a bit cramped for the class

CG Says: After last year’s freshening, the 2016 Chrysler 300 is little changed. The 300 Limited gets upgraded suspension and a performance suspension is newly available for the 300S. Also new is a 90th Anniversary Edition package for Limited that includes navigation and dual-pane sunroof. The Chrysler 300 exudes American style; it pairs distinctive exterior styling with a satisfyingly upscale cabin. Both the V6 and V8 engines deliver smooth performance with surprisingly good fuel economy. Rear-seat room is a sore spot, and we have a few niggling issues with the climate/audio control interface. Still, the 300 is a classy large sedan that delivers a refined driving experience.
