The Chrysler 300 feels old, but there's still plenty to love

It's still a good looking car, and it's plenty comfortable on long hauls, but the 300 lags behind the competition in several different ways.

The Chrysler 300 has been offering semi-throwback looks and big-body cruising since 2004.

More than a decade later, it still offers these things, which is both good and bad.

The segment has grown up around the 300, meaning a good car is now competing against better cars.

The 300 is a handsome car, but its look is starting to age in the face of new looks from Nissan, Toyota and others.

There's also the matter of its segment positioning.

Chrysler has a luxury angle to its vehicles, yet this car is priced to compete with non-luxury vehicles.

This specific 300 comes with the Anniversary Package, which adds a few aesthetic updates for a couple thousand bucks.

The 300 is still a good car, but its features list is only OK and its fuel economy is on the low side.

In the face of some excellent competition, you're going to need a very good reason to remain faithful to the 300.
