Sami: I’m sure Craig has heard the term ‘look but don’t touch.’ The 300C features a superb looking interior, but the Luxury trim also sports some cringe-worthy faux-wood. Actually, faux-wood is a compliment, as I’ve seen Happy Meal toys made with better care and material than this car’s interior. While yes, the steering wheel and knobs are well trimmed, the majority of the interior uses a material that is far less than what the ‘Luxury’ trim name would hint at.
Craig: Open a door and slide into the car’s cockpit and you’re treated to a pleasant interior. Like the bedding section of a department store, soft materials abound, and for the most part everything is quite premium. But “most” is not “all.” The faux carbon-fiber trim running across the dashboard and door panels of the Glacier Edition is some of the least convincing ever used in an automobile. It looks like the plastic pieces were treated with rattle-can Krylon sprayed through a screen door.
