With its attention-grabbing looks, high waistline, bold egg box-shaped front grille and chrome trim, there's no mistaking the Chrysler 300C. If you're after something different from the usual German saloons the big Chrysler is an ideal choice and comes with plenty of road presence as standard. Exceptionally well-equipped, spacious and comfortable, the 300C undercuts its rivals by several thousand pounds.

There's also the option of a great 3.0-litre V6 diesel that's fairly economical, although the 3.5-litre V6 and 5.7-litre V8 petrols are very thirsty. In early 2008 the model was facelifted with very minor changes to the outside plus a more upmarket feel to the cabin.
