Devices of the front panel dials are colored plaster with black lettering and black as arrows. Highlighting scales performed fluorescent light on a contour dials. After headlamps devices glow green and blue light. The front panel includes: speedometer, tachometer, fuel level indicator and coolant temperature and the central display driver information system (EVIC). Driver Information System is an interactive system, the central display can operate in seven different modes. Scroll keys and function keys of the system are located on the upper spokes of the steering wheel. There also are key audio controls.
The center console lid and automatic transmission selector made of plastic coated "for aluminum. The center console are the nozzle air-conditioning, Analog Clock, stereo system, satellite navigation systems (installed on request) and controls the climate setting. Part of the center console located between the front seats, a box for small items with a rosette of 12 volts. Top box covered with a padded armrest. Not forgotten, and two tip-up cup holder.
Patented laths "under the tortoise shell, similar to those used for decoration spectacles, frame door handles, decorated with the selector lever and the upper part of the ARC steering wheel.

Chrysler designers have developed a new approach, which allowed the company to return to the market rear-wheel drive luxury cars. " The long hood and short trunk, lifted the lower limit of glazing with high doors and smaller side windows, together form a distinctive and expressive image of sedan 300 C.
Short front and rear overhangs Chrysler 300 C stress greater wheelbase and large wheels, located as it were, outside the body, create an image of the car, which is the winner in the battle with the road.

The dominant feature of the design of the Chrysler 300C is the design of the grille. Emphasize high, it smoothly above the contours of the bonnet and front bumper. This design decision - a tribute to cars, Chrysler release late fifties, wearing the same literal notation. Because of this new parts Chrysler 300 C can not be mixed with any other car. For the first time in the development of new products, engineers used a full-size car in the blowing wind tunnel of DaimlerChrysler in Detroit. It was able to optimize not only the general contours of the body, but small parts of the exterior. Were carried out research work on aerodynamics poddnischevoy zone car as has ever been made by engineers Chrysler. Through these activities, air resistance coefficient Cd of the new model is just 0,343.
Chrysler 300C offers both a rich set of passive safety. Three programmed deformation zones dampen the energy of frontal impact into the body. Dual front side members made from two types of high-strength steel, transmit shock loads to cross the front shield, which, in turn, redistributes the efforts on the side and lower bearing elements so as to maintain the Chrysler 300 saloon with the living space. Highly placed the lower boundary of the lateral glazing allowed to make a door, which have the smallest ratio of glass area to their total area compared to most other cars. Structurally, the door consists of two molded panels. This feature of construction, as well as the use of the internal amplifiers and tubular reinforcing beams ensures reliable protection of passengers in the event of a collision.
The electronic control unit airbag system uses four sensors to determine the impact of its intensity and direction. In addition to the adaptive front airbags driver and front passenger next generation car installed side curtain airbags, which are attached to the bearing elements of the roof above the doors. All passengers Chrysler 300 fitted with three point seat belts. Seatbelts driver and front passenger seats are equipped with pretensioners with force limiters tension.
Bearing elements of the rear Chrysler 300 are designed in accordance with the stringent requirements, prescriptive test the central body blow from behind at a speed of 80 km / h. The design of the type "pipe in pipe" provides the body rigidity and a character of deformation upon impact, where the fuel tank is not damaged.
The electronic device can help when reversing. To do this, the rear bumper installed sensors for detecting obstacles. To a driver with the Chrysler 300 - means of sound and light alarm, warning of possible danger. Outside mirrors automatically rotated when you select reverse gears. Frontal Visibility from the driver's seat improved by the installation of two new sensors. Rain sensor will automatically turn the front windshield wiper at the start of rain and light sensor will automatically turn on lights with the onset of darkness.
