We Recommend

If you are looking for a stylish and premium sedan, you should pick the Limited trim at $23,950. It is quite cheaper than the higher trims and holds a great value with its standard features. With its 4 cylinder engine, you may not go fast, still, you can get anywhere with its decent gas mileage. If the base motor doesn't satisfy you, the only thing you can do is spend an extra $1,220 to avail the V6 powered S trim.

2015 Chrysler 200 Engine and Performance

6.0/10

The entry-level trims of the Chrysler 200 are powered by a 2.4L MultiAir 4 cylinder engine. With its 186hp power, don't confuse it with a sports sedan as this engine is only meant for pleasant driving and it isn't very capable. With the first-ever 9-Speed automatic in the segment, the 200 delivers smooth shifts and a great torque output of 173 pound-feet.

The fun of driving an American sedan begins with the V6 engine. The 3.6L 6 cylinder with its variable valve timing not only outputs 295 horses but it reduces the engine's carbon footprint and gives it a great mileage. The full-time AWD splits the 262 lb-ft between the front and rear wheels where 9-Speed transmission offers sleek shifts for quick throttle response.

The Chrysler 200 has a refined performance with its base engine as it reaches 60 MPH of speed in 8.5 seconds. You'll need almost twice the time to cover the quarter-mile. Still, the 4-cylinder won't give up until 130 MPH. The V6 engine is on another level as it is at least 2.0 seconds faster than the 4-cylinder while the top speed is at 145 MPH.

The Chrysler 200 gets a similar price tag as its rivals. As it competes with fierce rivals, it isn't the fastest car in the segment. The Kia Optima blasts off the quickest with its 192hp base engine. Also, we have the Toyota Camry which is surprisingly fast. Even the Hyundai Sonata is slightly quicker than the 200. If you want the punch and throttle response, you should go for the Chrysler 200 S and C that comes with a powerful V6 engine. The base 4 cylinder is just for the ones who desire efficiency.

2015 Chrysler 200 Fuel Economy

9.0/10

The fuel-efficient Japanese sedans used to make the American cars look bad with their mileage. As time changed, American cars have evolved with their fuel-efficient motors and transmissions. In the case of the Chrysler 200, the 9-Speed automatic does its job in the best way possible, you get 23 MPG in the city, an impressive 36 MPG on the highway, and a combined 28 MPG.

The performance-oriented V6 engine isn't much behind as it has the VVT technology that ensures dynamic power and fuel management. With 18 MPG in the city, 29 MPG on the highway, and a combined 22 MPG, the Chrysler 200 C is good enough to be driven daily. You can even hit the road with your friends to go on a weekend holiday.

The Chrysler 200 isn't that bad in terms of fuel economy. Still, rivals like Toyota Camry and the Hyundai Sonata have a much better mileage in the city. However, we have an impressive 36 MPG of highway mileage with the Chrysler 200. Again, the rivals provide a longer range with their bigger fuel tanks and the 200 falls short against them.

2015 Chrysler 200 Interior

9.0/10

As the Chrysler 200 is designed as a sports sedan, it is comparatively smaller than its elder sibling, the Chrysler 300. The second-generation model gets a more stylish and sporty cabin layout. With a seating capacity of 5 passengers, the Chrysler 200 has a premium cabin with top-notch material quality with metal-look, chrome accents with optional wood accents.

The design lines and appearance of the dashboard are reconfigured to promote its sporty appeal. For that, we have a blue-lit analog-digital instrument cluster with dual gauges, center stashed infotainment, a sporty heated leather steering wheel paired with paddle shifters, and a sports car-like inclined center console with a gear shift knob along with the HVAC.

The base LX trim gets standard premium cloth upholstery with 6-way driver and passenger bucket seats. The S trim has leather upholstery with a 12-way power driver sport seat and 4-way lumbar support. The top-end trims add a heating function for the front seats. At the back, we have a 60/40 split-bench seat that can be folded down for more cargo volume.

The standard cabin few include cruise control, tilt and telescopic steering, sliding center armrest, and second-row armrest with storage. We have optional dual-zone air-conditioning which is standard only with the top trim. There's an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an air filtration system, and a dual-pane panoramic sunroof.

The Chrysler 200 provides ample space and comfort for the front passengers. Still, we have the Korean twins with better seating space. As we move to the second row, we have less space that won't be able to please the tall passengers. This time Toyota Camry took over the Chrysler 200 to provide better rear-seat space. In terms of cargo capacity, the 200 competes with the Sonata. When it comes to design and quality, Chrysler is way ahead of its rivals as you have standard premium cloth upholstery and chrome accents. Highlight Interior features in the 2015 Chrysler 200 are:

2015 Chrysler 200 Exterior

7.0/10

With the all-new redesigned 200, Chrysler has set the bar high. The All-American-made sedan has debuted with a crisp and aggressive exterior design. It has gone under various measures for technology, performance, and efficiency to come out as a premium American sedan that stands out against its rivals.

The sleeker front fascia looks next level with the new smaller chrome surround grille and projector-beam headlamps and LED DRLs. To accompany that, we have optional LED foglamps as well. The grille looks stylish with the huge Chrysler badging. The bumper has chrome treatment and a dedicated space for the air dam.

The muscular design lines remind us of the American muscle cars from the past. From the side, it looks sporty as ever and no less than any German luxury sedan. The air repelling side profile is the work of extensive aerodynamic testing. To give it a phenomenal appearance, you can pick the 18-inch satin carbon aluminum wheels.

The roofline slides down the rear window to give it a coupe-like styling. The trunk has a scooped-up spoiler that makes it more sporty. The rear fascia looks charming with the LED tail lamps. The base trim gets a simpler single exhaust tip where the top-end V6 powered trim is offered with a sporty bumper and dual chrome tip exhausts.
