The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Riper and more mature, the latest Chrysler 300 has classically handsome looks and in the right versions, big rear-drive fun. The Genesis' impressive details and execution make it a pragmatic luxury-car choice, especially in the quick, plush V-6 version.
