2012 Chrysler 300C interior image leaked

After being drip-fed tiny scraps of information by Chrysler for months, an image of the all-new 2012 Chrysler 300C interior has leaked onto the internet ahead of an official release.

The image reveals a light cabin with satin chrome highlights and real golden wood trim. The wood, leather and other surfaces are said to be a much higher quality than the outgoing model, and will be available in a range of colour combinations.

An 8.4-inch entertainment/navigation display (believed to be shared with the 2011 Dodge Charger and Journey) dominates the dashboard.

The steering wheel has been redesigned and behind it sits a contemporary blue-lit instrument panel.

The traditional centrally mounted analogue clock maintains pride of place atop the dashboard, and overall the interior retains its American feel, although clearly heavily inspired by more expensive European competitors.

Compared with the current model’s interior, which was very harsh, dark and even a little bland, the new one exudes a more luxurious and high quality look and feel.

Exterior images and specification details of the 2012 Chrysler 300C have been released in the past month.

The vehicle will make its debut at the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January and will arrive in Australia in 2012 when right-hand drive variants become available.
