2016 Chrysler 200S and 300S

Family cars come in many sizes, but you can never go wrong with a sedan. They’re just big enough for the kids to-and-from school, and can also get the average driver to work as well. Over the years, predecessors of the family car have started to become out-shined by the more modern and up-to-date models, especially if they’re parked next to a Chrysler. Chrysler sedans are beginning to rule the American highways again, and the 200 and 300 models are at the top of the list.

Today, let’s look at a happy medium of the trim line, the S series. Both, the Chrysler Sedan 200S and 300S come in all-wheel drive (AWD); the 300S has the option rear-wheel drive (RWD), whereas the 200S can come with front-wheel drive (FWD).

Loaded with advanced technology and safety features, the Chrysler 300S is already a superior car to its predecessors.

What really makes it stand out is although the price is the norm for a non-luxury car, it’s packed with luxury car options and variety.

A perfect contender for the family man looking for elegance, luxury, and a great deal, the Chrysler 200S takes the gold. It’s more stylish than most of its competition, and with the choice of AWD or FWD, drivers’ choices start from the ground up. Take its safety features and modern technology into account, and it’s ready to enter the ring.
