PACKED to bursting with refined techno treats and offering comfort levels to match any premium brand, the Chrysler 300C is big on style and big on performance.

With eye-catching good looks that are guaranteed to turn heads wherever it passes, this larger-than-life car looks amazing from every angle thanks to its 20-inch polished alloys, platinum chrome door handles, mirrors and grille surround, tinted windows, smart light clusters, dual pane sunroof and elegant streamlining.

It's certainly not a car that goes unnoticed and the level of on-board technology cannot fail to impress even the fussiest.

For example, the steering wheel along with the Nappa leather seats can be heated, there is dual zone climate control, an 8.4-inch colour touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, adaptive cruise control, an excellent infotainment system incorporating sat-nav and a nine-speaker sound system plus plenty more besides.

Occupants have amazing levels of comfort and back seat passengers can spread out with plenty of leg, head and elbow space.

The 330C features a very large boot which can be increased further thanks to split-folding rear seats and there are plenty of smaller compartments scattered throughout the cabin including a double drinks holder that can be heated or cooled depending on your preference.

And when it comes to performance, the 300C is no slouch either.

The 3.0-litre dieselpowered engine packs plenty of punch as the car moves smoothly through the five-speed automatic transmission. Manual gear changes are an option via the steering wheel-mounted paddles.

Acceleration is smooth and swift and the road-holding excellent - even at higher speeds on tight bends.

In and around town, the 300C simply cruised along and the front and rear park assist system with rear camera is a real bonus when it comes to parking this lengthy car.

But out on the faster lanes and motorways, the 300C bursts into life and there seems to be an endless supply of power on tap.

Chrysler has packed an array of top notch safety features into the car, including anti-lock brakes, numerous airbags, blind spot monitoring system, forward collision warning system, active pedestrian protection and lots more.

There is also a top-of-the-range alarm system to keep away any uninvited visitors.

All in all, Chrysler may not be the first name that springs to mind when discussing luxury motoring, but the latest 300C certainly promotes the brand into that category.
