    Chrysler counter-offered a top-level Lounge. Not quite what I asked for, but as a member of the Brown Car Appreciation Society sans card, alas I felt duty bound to accept.

    And this is before opening the door to find seats upholstered in chocolate brown leather, with matching trim on the doors and dash. The ivory steering wheel, upper seatbacks, and control panels provide a classy contrast while keeping the whole from seeming too serious or somber.
