Sharp Body Line Exterior

When taking a quick look at the front, you will notice the 300 has a very similar grill, headlamps and all around design that is similar to that of the 200 model, and even the Town and Country. What differentiates the 300 from the rest of the Chrysler models, is its sleeker look, rounder more aerodynamic and a windshield that lays at more acute angle. While standing back a bit, and taking a better look at the overall profile of the vehicle you can see that the 300 has very bold wheel lips that connects with a sharp body line from front to end.
