The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Still turning heads after five years on the road, the 2009 Chrysler 300 is one of the kings of cool in the large sedan market. The 2008 Audi A6 has plenty of competition, but its graceful look and feel set it apart from more brutal German and more clinical Japanese iron.
