LIMOUSINE, CHARTER & TOUR APRIL 2015 31 deductible per repair visit; "Sign and Go" roadside assis- tance; $100 towing allowance; car rental allowance; and $1,000 trip interruption coverage. — in use. The audio system features various upgrade options. One re- freshing Chrysler throwback is the chrome-and-white analog clock that exudes refnement in an age where cars often are overloaded with digital displays. The 300 Platinum C features quilted Nappa leather, handsome wood, ultra-premium Poltrona Frau leather-wrapped instrument pan- el and console, plus platinum-chrome exterior details and 20-inch wheels. One lux item that came in handy was the heated steering wheel which was welcome starting out in single-digit New Jersey temperatures in February. The new interior design also features an electronic rotary transmis- sion shifter that evokes European auto console styles, and a new three- spoke steering wheel with larger vehicle controls. I especially like the safety feature of adjusting sound from controls placed behind the steer- ing wheel, so your hands never lose their grip. Cargo The 300 has 16.3 cubic feet of trunk space, which is on par with chauffeured sedans of today. Storing the luggage of two passengers should not pose any problems. I do not advise squeezing a third person in the center rear because of the pronounced transmission hump. Aside from a Hobbit, it would be uncomfortable for the aver- age human to straddle.
