2015 Chrysler 300 has been named one of KBB.com’s ten most comfortable cars under $30,000

The 2015 Chrysler 300 has been named one of KBB.com’s ten most comfortable cars under $30,000. The editors wrote, “Chrysler’s big and bold full-size sedan recalls the glamour and ease of yesteryear in a car that offers all of today’s modern amenities,”

The base price of a 2015 Chrysler 300 Limited is $32,690, including destination charges, but incentives bring it below the $30,000 threshold. A comparably equipped Chevrolet Impala 2LT is $31,110, and it doesn’t have the 300’s outstanding V6/8-speed combination.

In thousands of test miles, many with four adults and luggage, Allpar testing has found that, regardless of trim level, the Chrysler 300 a is standout among non-luxury cars, easily surpassing comparable Ford and GM cars in total passenger comfort over long distances. Even brand-agnostic drivers praise the car’s comfort and driveability.

Often-neglected rear-seat passengers, including those six feet tall, have plenty of room, and the Chrysler 300’s formal roofline makes dignified entry and exit no problem, an advantage over the Dodge Charger.

Allpar real-world testing has shown the Chrysler 300 with the Pentastar V6 cruises effortlessly even at the 80 miles per hour allowed on West Texas highways. We have achieved an easy 33 mpg on long trips at 70-75 mph.

2014 Nissan Versa Note named one of the “10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000” by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com

– 2014 model earns selection for fun-to-drive and fun-to-own characteristics –

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – After a record-breaking sales month* in June, the 2014 Nissan Versa Note is now one of the coolest cars on the block. Recently, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com named the Versa Note to its “10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000” list. The recognition follows news that Nissan Versa sales increased a record-high 30.5 percent in May.

To compile the annual list, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com editors used two “critical” criteria – fun-to-drive and fun-to-own – to determine a vehicle’s “cool factor.” Additionally, vehicles must be available for purchase at $18,000 or less, using Kelley Blue Book’s exclusive Fair Purchase Price – a pricing tool that shows what others have been paying for a new car that week, based on data from thousands of purchases, vehicle availability, local demand, seasonal buying trends and “over 85 years of values experience.”

“The Nissan Versa Note is truly ‘the door to more,’ offering an exceptional combination of style, comfort, technology and cargo space at a price even the most economical car buyers can appreciate,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations. “Featuring a sleek, modern design with enhanced aerodynamics for improved fuel economy, and class-exclusive Around View® Monitor, the Versa Note is “cool” in in a variety of ways – from the road, to the parking lot, to your wallet.”

The companion to the popular Nissan Versa sedan and featuring a starting MSRP of only $13,990**, Versa Note celebrates the unique qualities of its 5-door hatchback design. It is available in a range of well-equipped models – S, S Plus, SV, SR and SL, each equipped with an advanced 1.6-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine with dual fuel injection. Xtronic transmission models achieve 40-mpg highway fuel economy.

The long list of available equipment includes NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, Nissan Intelligent Key®, RearView Monitor, Bluetooth® Streaming Audio and class-exclusive*** Around View® Monitor, Divide-N-Hide® Adjustable Floor (adjustable rear load floor height), heated front seats and 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
