What's the used Chrysler 300C saloon like?

Big, bold and menacing-looking, the Chrysler 300C is related to the previous-shape Mercedes E-Class, but doesn't hide its American heritage. It certainly has plenty of presence on the road and tempts buyers by offering lots of kit for their cash.

Performance is never in short supply, whichever engine you choose, and the 300C is pretty refined, although it can't match the silky smoothness of a Jag.

On the road, the Chrysler always feels like a big car, which isn't surprising given its weight and length. That said, it feels assured through a series of fast, sweeping bends, although the body control could be better over poor surfaces.

Drivers will have no problem getting comfortable in the roomy cabin, although the comparatively small windscreen and big screen pillars restrict visibility. The huge boot easily copes with a family's holiday luggage, and every model is generously equipped.
