Chrysler 300 2016 Exterior
The new 300 will feature minor changes compared to the previous model, but the subtle differences are all it takes to make the car look better than ever before. The headlights will feature the same design lines, with a new daylight partial LED pattern, located at the beginning. The front grille is a bit larger and more rectangular shaped. The front bumper features a fresh design as well, as the air intake openings now form a single unit, stretching across the entire bumper. The fog lights are located at each end of the front bumper, a subtle but effective concept. The back of the new 300 kept the same design concept as before. It will feature a pair of similarly designed, rectangular shaped tail lights. The rear bumper hasn’t suffered any key changes. The entire back of the car is chambered by a negative angle, just like on the old model.
