The 300 marks the cheapest way into the RC family, making use of the smallest engine; a 2.0-litre turbocharged unit good for 180kW/350Nm. It pairs with an eight-speed automatic and shuffles power to the rear wheels.
Like the rest of the RC range, the 300 can be had in three trim levels - Luxury, F Sport or Sports Luxury - with prices spanning $65,400 to $84,900.
Luxury cars get 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and fog lights, leather trim, standard navigation, heated and ventilated front seats, dual-zone climate and keyless entry with push-button start. F Sport cars add bigger 19-inch alloys, a better Mark Levinson stereo and rain-sensing wipers. Finally, the Sports Luxury models get better seats, some fancier cabin furniture and a moonroof.
Standard safety kit includes dual front and front-side airbags, as well as front airbags for the second row. You'll also find a knee airbag for both driver and front-seat passenger. Forward collision warning with AEB (and pedestrian protection) is standard fit, too, and so are front and rear parking sensors and a parking camera.
F Sport and Sports Luxury-badged cars add blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, along with lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist.
