The 300c is quite popular,atleast in most parts of the US. Chrysler cars don't have much of a resale value,most often losing upto 40-50% within 3-4 years.

There are quite a few engine options:
2.7 L V6
3.5 L V6
5.7 L V8
6.1L V8
3.0L V8

These seem to be the 3.5L ones.

Both the variants shown are 5.7L, v8, 340BHP, RWD cars...The 3.5L has a different headlamp and taillamp.

Is that so? I haven't paid attention to the difference in the headlights. Will look it up right away.

(This is for SRT8)
if i have to guess it would be about 55-65L considering its a lot more expensive in the RHD trim. Somehow the conversion cost is passed onto the buyer directly from chrysler. The car costs 45k-50k us but in uk its 40-45k gbp, so the landed cost is high. If they kept the price round about the same it would be half that.

SRT8 isnt bad for what you get in the US, but i agree it too much money in india and UK.

But i can see how they are being different..so its a good thing.

Guys, I drove one version of this car last week and I didn't quite like its performance. Its pick-up is quite lousy, and accord performs much better. I had to press the pedal all the way to make it move quick.
Moreover, the turn indcators and wiper switches are placed on the same stick (I was driving on a semi-rainy day), what heck of money is chrysler going to save by putting just one stick behind steering instead of usual two ?
The seats are not comfortable, and the front windshield looks too tiny for the car of that size, I just felt that I needed more view ahead. Same goes for the back shield as well...

I just felt that this car just has a huge body, but sorely lacks on engine/power front (same as new camry). In fact even my colleague was pissed off by it when he drove it. I wouldn't advise anyone to buy this, either here or in India.

This is probably the first time I have seen an import being displayed in a fitting showroow. What is this total car mall? Are they only in imports? Website? Reputation?

Its a car mall which has all the cars Indian + Imported.

They have quite a few imported cars on display, Hummers, Porsche's, MR2s, Landcruisers, Lexus, BMW etc and then the normal Indian cars too like Logan, Innova, Mercedes E Class, Accord, etc.

No website as such but you can read more about them here

which engined version did u drive...comparing to an accord in terms of performance then it has got to be small capacity engines, because the HEMI be it 5.7 or 6.1 is pretty decent.
