The redesigned2015 Chrysler 200 entered a highly competitive midsize class with great reception. A far more appealing frame, with just the right curves and sculpting, and a bevy of improved features afford this new Detroit staple a feeling of refinement. Its style is second only to the experience behind the wheel, which is quite communicative – and comes in at a cheaper price than its predecessor.
Starting at just $22,695, consumers aren’t spared quality for a lower cost. The strategy at Chrysler, especially since CEO Sergio Marchionne came in five years ago, has focused on smart engineering that maximizes resources during design and manufacturing. This approach yields a greater number of options, as well as more customization.
Consumers finalizing a purchase may upgrade seating, select LED lighting, opt for the 8.4-inch touchscreen, add bronze chrome accents and wood trim, and many more classy choices. As with all brands, adding more options increases the price; however, as the New York Daily News noted, a person does not have to spend an additional $10,000 for these luxuries.
If the 200C trim level is appealing, it is only $4,000 more than the base model and includes adaptive cruise control, brake assist, blind spot and cross path detection, front collision warning, land departure warning, lane keeping assist, rain sensing wipers, and parallel and perpendicular park assists.
Yes, the 200C a trove of safety features for fewer than $30,000.
All of the options and features appeal to your sense of value, so the question of power and performance remains. The base model comes with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that delivers 184 horsepower and 173 lbs.-ft of torque – with great fuel economy. If you’re a buyer who likes a bit more punch, the optional 3.6-liter V-6 cranks out 295-horsepower and 162 lbs-ft of torque.
If you test drive the 2015 Chrysler 200, the spacious cabin and excellent performance will exceed all expectations. Every facet of this car positions it as top-of-the-line in its class, so buyer beware: you’ll find yourself addicted to driving this car. The midsize segment will never be the same.
