2016 Chrysler 300 C – Rental Car Review and Test Drive

► Summary:

I drove the 2016 Chrysler 300 for two days. This is a big four door sedan with a lot of great features. But…well I just didn’t like it. I’m six feet tall and even with the driver’s seat lowed all the way I still hit my head on the ceiling. And the back seat is even worse. I actually had to slouch to fit.

I’m also super annoyed that Chrysler included a small analog clock at the top of the center console right next to the touch screen that has…a digital clock. Really poor design in my opinion.

But the Chrysler 300 does have some great tech features and some decent acceleration, so do check it out if you’re looking for a large four door sedan.

Likes:
(1) decent acceleration;
(2) updated tech; and
(3) plenty of storage space.

Dislikes:
(1) low ceiling;
(2) ugly interior;
(3) what’s with the analog clock?

► Would I buy this car? No. I don’t like the design and I don’t even fit in the front seat.
