We love the latest in-car technology and the new 2012 Chrysler 300C boasts some of the coolest we've seen in a long time. After all, it doesn't seem that long ago when in-car technology consisted of a built in CD player and central locking and we thought that was cool. Now luxury cars like the new 2012 Chrysler 300C boast more technologies than a super yacht!
One of the coolest features we love is the 2 front cup holders which are cooled and heated and come with LED lighting which glow blue when they're chilled and red when they're hot!
Another cool feature of the 2012 Chrysler 300C is the 'Rain Brake Support' helping the brake pads stay dry for better stopping power in poor condition. Ventilated front seats and heated rears, the Uconnect infotainment system with Bluetooth, dual-zone climate control, an 8.4-inch touch screen display, mirrors that darken automatically to limit headlight glare, cruise control and 18-inch wheels are all standard on the Limited model.
The Executive version has a Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) system, radar Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and a two-panel panoramic sunroof as well as the forward collision monitoring system and 20-inch alloy wheels.
Chrysler’s new wing badge has been remodelled to have a more cool modern appearance.
The 2012 Chrysler 300C boasts a 3 litre V6 turbo diesel engine which ensures a smooth and powerful ride (as well as surprisingly good fuel efficiency up to 47.9 miles per gallon).
it also features an 8.4 inch touch screen display that serves as the hub for many of the vehicle's advanced features shown in this video:
If this is the future of in-car technology then it's going to be some fun driving years ahead of us!
The system comes complete with audio jack input for plugging in your iPod or other MP3 device. Also fitted as standard is a 9 speaker sound system which can be upgraded to a cool 19 speaker Harman Kardon 7.1 surround sound set up complete with 3...yes 3 subwoofers! Other entertainment features include an SD card reader for MP3 sound files, AM/FM radio tuner a CD/DVD player and an input for USB devices.
In car navigation
In car navigation is becoming increasingly important to help take the stress out of planning your journey and here the Chrysler 300C looks like it executes this really well. While reversing into a parking space an image on the touch screen display shows the view from the back of the car provided by an board camera including a representation of the width of the car so you know instantly if the car parking space is big enough. Cool eh! Should cut down the number of car park scrapes and car insurance claims!
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
Another safety feature is Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) which uses radar to automatically modify the Chrysler 300C's speed to keep a safe distance when the car approaches another vehicle in the same lane or even when a vehicle enters from another lane.
Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)
Similarly Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) uses an ultra broadband radar sensor to search for cars that might be briefly concealed from your view. Icons illuminate in the mirror and an acoustic warning signal sounds if there is a car in the blind spot.
For the ultimate in luxury, the touch screen control can also be used to control your individual settings. Not only can the air conditioning be set to different temperatures for the driving and passenger seat, you can also precisely adjust the positioning of the seat, even set your seat to move out of the way of the steering wheel when the car is stationary to make it easier to get out of the car.
