PRICE $43,000 EN­GINE 3.6-litre V6, 210kW/340Nm

TRANS­MIS­SION 8-speed auto; RWD THIRST 9.4L/100km THE LOW­DOWN Noth­ing on the road, short of a big­bore Bent­ley, has the im­pact of the 300. It’s a big car with tough body­work, a comfy cabin and pretty good per­for­mance with ei­ther the diesel or Pen­tas­tar V6. It feels a bit bulky to han­dle but the real limit to cor­ner­ing is front buck­ets that are more like arm­chairs. Qual­ity is well up from the first-gen­er­a­tion 300C, some­thing re­flected — much like the pop­u­lar diesel vari­ant — in sales that con­tinue to grow.
