Chrysler re-launched its 300C with the improved model going on sale in the UK from June 2012. There are two versions available with prices starting at £35,995 on the road for the distinctive four-door saloon.

Chrysler was by then owned by FIAT and the brand promised that the 300C (built in Canada) would deliver 'European-style quality and finesse' while still retaining the bold American styling that made it so popular. There have been a few tweaks, with new headlights and a redesigned grille along with a new rear end look.

It also got a very high level of standard equipment with entry-level Limited models coming with heated front and rear seats, hill start assist, load levelling suspension and LED daytime running lights. The top 300C Executive version costs £39,995 on the road and comes even better equipped with heated and ventilated Nappa leather seats, keyless entry, adaptive cruise control, a blind spot monitoring system and a forward collision warning.

Power comes from a VM Motori chain cam 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine developing 236bhp and 540Nm of torque. Claimed economy was 39.8mpg and CO2 emissions are 185g/km to 191g/km depending on wheel size.

Chrysler 300C tyre recommendation?
"I have a 2012 Chrysler 300C with Firestone P225/60R18 tyres on it. I haven't been much impressed by the grip and think it's time to replace them. What do you think are the best tyres to go with this car? "
Michelin Primacy 3s, Continentals or Pirellis. The tyre fitter needs to be careful because the TMPS monitors in the valves are very fragile.
