Which used Chrysler 300C saloon should I buy?

The 218bhp 3.0 turbodiesel is our favourite, thanks to its effortless pulling power and in-gear flexibility. It's pretty quiet, too, unless pushed hard.

The 249bhp 3.5-litre V6 is punchy and propels the big exec to 60mph in a reasonable 9.2sec, but for outright power and pace choose the 340bhp 5.7 V8. It never needs to be worked hard to make rapid progress and will help the car glide seamlessly to 60mph in under seven seconds.

There are no separate specification levels, and each model has a bespoke equipment list that can put many rivals to shame: the diesel and 3.5 V6 petrol have air-con, alloy wheels, stability control and traction control, parking sensors, electric windows all-round, a CD player and leather upholstery. The range-topping 5.7 V8 adds an electric sunroof, CD multichanger and sat-nav.
