CATS Motors, Inc. has one of the bigger displays over at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) and for good reason: they're introducing a lot of exciting new products for the public. Among them is the 2012 Chrysler 300C with the first ever eight-speed automatic fitted into an American car.

Fitted to the 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar (292 horsepower), the new ZF eight-speed automatic helps increase fuel economy by reducing the gaps normally associated with up- and down-shifting. The 2012 300C also benefits from a new Sport mode for quick shifts for a more performance-oriented acceleration and higher shift dynamics. All-in-all, the 2012 300C promises to achieve fuel mileage figures in excess of 13 km/L. Aside from the eight-speed ZF automatic, the 2012 Chrysler 300C also features an all-wheel drive system for greater all weather traction and stability.

Chrysler's flagship design is also fitted with all the latest safety equipment such as electronic stability control (ESC) along with seven airbags, front-row reactive head restraints, hill-start assist, rain-brake support and ready-alert braking.

Also new at Chrysler's MIAS booth is the re-designed Town & Country with an all-new grille design and refreshed interior.
