For The Chrysler 300C is big for the money, and the V6 diesel engine is reasonably refined at cruising speeds. It looks very different from the established German competition, too.

Against The cabin materials aren’t a match for those of most rivals, and the 3.0-litre V6 diesel is the only engine option, leaving the 300C flagging behind four-cylinder rivals on emissions and economy.

The 300C is an unconventional choice, and that in itself gives it some appeal. However, it’s hard to recommend over cleaner, more refined rivals.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

It’s hard to recommend the Chrysler 300C as a company car, given how relatively dirty its V6 turbodiesel engine is compared with efficient solutions from BMW, Audi, Jaguar and Mercedes that have virtually no trade-off in performance.

However, if you’re a private buyer and fancy something different - and are prepared for the extra costs in road tax and fuel bills - then we can see the 300C having appeal. Its distinctive looks are matched by a cabin that’s nicely finished and relatively spacious for the money.

We’d keep the car on the standard 18-inch wheels if possible, because the ride quality suffers a fraction if you go any bigger. We’d also question the dealer hard on when the eight-speed automatic transmission is going to be introduced, because we can see that gearbox making a big difference to the car’s driveability, not to mention its fuel economy and CO2 figures.
