Chrysler 200 Overview

The 200 is an outdated and outclassed design that is uncompetitive among family sedans. On the plus side, the ride is compliant and the optional V6 is strong and smooth. The noisy and unrefined 173-hp four-cylinder gets only 21 mpg overall, the same as the 283-hp V6. The six-speed automatic doesn't shift particularly smoothly or quickly. Though the soft suspension provides decent isolation, it also allows frequent body motions, and handling lacks agility but is secure. Most controls are straightforward. Reliability has been average of late. A redesigned 200 arrives this spring.
