Refined, polished, and more sophisticated are descriptors that come to mind after studying the 2011 300’s new sheetmetal. Its muscular fenders remain, as does the basic shape of its greenhouse, albeit with thinner A-pillars for improved visibility. The beltline crease is more pronounced and now finds itself running above, rather than through, the door handles. The 300’s nose, cradling Chrysler’s new corporate grille and badge, was designed to appear smaller than before to make the new car look more streamlined. Shapelier lighting elements with LED running lamps and optional xenon bulbs bring the 300C up-to-date with current illumination trends. Its stern is now cleaner, too, with exhaust finishers integrated into the valance and a chrome bar connecting the taillights—although the latter look overwrought with the shiny stuff laid inside the lenses. The 300C still looks commanding and is immediately recognizable, though, as if the old model had found a fine tailor to sharpen up its off-the-rack suit.
