2017 Chrysler 200

Pros: Available all-wheel drive; broad range of trim options and available features; competitive pricing; improved fuel economy

Cons: Interior and trunk room are fairly stingy for the class, particularly in the back seat; 4-cylinder engine not as refined as some rivals

CG Says: Chrysler 200 gains two new option packages, but otherwise is unchanged for 2017. A Dark Appearance Package is available for Touring and an Alloy Edition Package that includes sport suspension is offered on AWD S. 200 is Chrysler’s midsize sedan. Engine choices are a 184-horsepower 2.4-liter 4-cylinder and a 295-hp 3.6-liter V6. Both mate to a 9-speedf automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available. A SafetyTec package includes adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, blind-spot alert, lane-departure warning, and parking assist. Redesigned for 2015, 200 is a vast improvement over its also-ran predecessor, counting rakish looks, a nicely finished interior, up-to-the-minute infotainment features, and broad model lineup among its strengths. Overall, the 200 isn’t compelling enough to unseat the dominant Honda Accord and Toyota Camry at the top of the midsize car class, but shoppers who value all-wheel drive or are simply willing to look off the beaten path will find it a worthwhile choice.
