Chrysler 200 2013 sedan
Trim Shown: Base
The 200 is an outdated and outclassed design that is uncompetitive among family sedans.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.

Reliability has dropped to below average.
