The new 300 sedan’s iconic and unmistakable exterior proportions are now crafted with even more sculptural and expressive style for 2015, with a bolder “face of Chrysler” front grille, signature LED lighting, unique finishes and new wheel designs. Sales of the 300 were up 1 percent in January, its best January sales in two years.

Interesting month for FCA.  Everything is up but the minivans and Durango (and 500 but it was more or less flat).  It will be really interesting to see what happens to their sales numbers once the Renegade and 500X launch.  Are those two vehicles conquest vehicles or are they more likely to steal sales from other FCA products?  I tend to think the 500X will impact 500 and 500L sales more than the Renegade will other Jeep products.

I agree people who do not like Fiat but want something small will go with Jeep Renegade. Otherwise I think the 500x will eat 500 and 500L sales.
