The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Riper and more mature, the latest Chrysler 300 has classically handsome looks and in the right versions, big rear-drive fun. The 2012 Lincoln MKS writes its own definition of luxury with great straight-line performance, quiet good looks, and a spacious interior.
