In today's car market a Chrysler or Kia with a base price of $30K can easily become $45K, just by checking a few random boxes. You can do the math – that extra fifteen thousand dollars will cost you $300/month over the life (and death) of a 60-month payment book. Obviously, in the context of 'bang for your buck' a $45K Chrysler or Kia is cheap, given what you receive in creature comfort and amenities, if not exclusivity. But if your goal is only to get places in a stylish sedan capable of staying with traffic, you can keep your outlay far closer to the base price of these cars than those heavily optioned.
