The 2015 Chrysler 300's attention-grabbing styling, elegant interior and composed road manners convey an overall classiness that rivals luxury sedans.
Austin, Texas, is weird; the city actually hangs its hat on that distinction. A small patch of donkey blue wedged in a sea of elephant red, the liberal stronghold prides itself on its odd-man-out political status and singular strangeness. I visited the Texas city to drive the updated 300, which proved itself to be anything but strange.
Light exterior and interior styling updates, a standard eight-speed automatic transmission with rotary dial and additional safety features highlight the changes for 2015. Compare the 2014 and 2015 models here. The 300 goes head-to-head with large sedans like the Chevrolet Impala and Ford Taurus, as well as the more upmarket Hyundai Genesis; compare them here.
The 300 Limited, 300S, 300C and 300C Platinum trim levels are available for 2015. Sadly, the high-performance SRT8 version has been discontinued. I tested a pair of rear-wheel-drive V-6 Limited and S models; Chrysler expects around 40 percent of buyers to opt for the base Limited sedan. All-wheel drive is a $2,500 option with the V-6 only.
