It's just you Actually I'm just saying that because it looks beautiful only because of its clean lines and chunky profile, and that chunky rear end would not look so good on a convertible imo.

The problem with the 300C gets into is kind of similar to the problem that the Fiat Palio gets into.

In both cases we have a car that is priced in a lower bracket but has the size and presence of a car in a higher segment. Now it automatically gets compared to the bigger cars and then gets criticized for certain details (in this case interior).....all the while the critics fail to ignore the bargain basement pricing of the product.

The Chrysler 300 base price starts under 25K in the US where as the cheapest E class is 45K. But comparing these two w/o understanding the facts and dissing the 300 dosen't make anybody a genius.

Also FYI, the Chrysler 300 chassis is based on the W210 E-class as it was developed during the DCX merger.

@Mpower
I understand what you mean but what I think the critics are complaining is the fact that it does not make sense in India to buy it at the same price as a E or 5.

Yes and along with that they contribute royally to the economic downslide of the country (partially caused by inflation which is in turn partly triggered by the gasoline price upswings) with their fuel guzzlers.

great pictures Maverick. somehow the car in a dark colour would look better. this car is just imported by seeing the pictures. so is it with a dealer or owner itself.

It is not a sad dashboard, it's a little mix of retro/american and new. I am sure you prefer the swifts dashboard to this one Its built to American tastes not Japanese/indian/marutiudyog

Check the Fiat 500's dash and you wont like that too but its the best I have ever seen and the whole non-maruti world would agree.
