Everybody knows that the Lancia Thema is just a rebadged Chrysler 300. So it’s not like we didn’t know how the interior of this would look like. Still, those slight Lancia touches have given it an air of luxury and exclusivity.
And we don’t mind really this being a Chrysler, because it’s a good one! We’ve always maintained that the 300 is an overall rubbish sedan beaten by its European, and even Korean, rivals but it’s freezingly cool and for that reason alone we’d rather have the Chrysler over all the others.
The same applies for the interior. It is an American design and for some weird reason Americans can’t do interiors properly! They’ve got better recently, but still they’re far behind European models. Lancia has done some nice styling details all over the cabin such as two-tone leather, elegant wooden trims, contrasting stitching and beautiful dials and those changes have really improved it.
Considering all the suddle enhancments Lancia has implemented on the Chrysler 300 we have to say if you want a cool and awesome sedan that is also stylish and luxurious, forget the 300 and buy the Thema!
