Car video reviews:

Segment: Large

I think it’s pretty hard not to remember the first generation of the Chrysler 300 that was launched in 2005.

The luxurious sedan turned everyone’s heads with its muscular body and the retro-inspired look.

The 2011 model retained some of the most loved exterior lines, however, the edges were smoothed out. And the windshield had a more rakish angle.

The exterior details were also refined with the aim of creating a more elegant appearance.

The Chrysler 300 kept the old’s model rear-wheel-drive system, however, it was thoroughly improved.

The materials used in the cabin were of a greater quality than the ones in the previous model and looked even more luxurious than before.

Two engine options were available for 2011: a 3.0-liter Pentastar V6 that developed 292 hp and a Semi V8 engine that put up 363 hp.

The new Chrysler 300 was available with four trim levels: base, Limited, 300C and 300C AWD.

The base model included 17-inch wheels, heated mirrors, cruise control, automatic headlights, an 8-way power driver seat, a highly adjustable leather-wrapped steering wheel, a touchscreen display and a 6-speaker audio system.

The 300 Limited added bigger alloys (18-inch), exterior chrome accents, a rearview camera to ease parking, heated front seats, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio and a premium 6-speaker Alpine audio system.

An optional package was available for the 300 Limited trim with features meant to increase comfort.

The 300C included the optional package available for the 300 (Luxury Group) and added the Hemi V8 engine with bigger brakes, automatic high beams and wipers, and a navigation system that offered real-time traffic information.

The 300C AWD added, of course, an all-wheel-drive system and 19-inch alloys.
