What You Will Like

The Chrysler 200 competes in the very crowded midsized sedan class against some of the best-selling cars in America. The 200 stands up to heavyweights such as the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry and will have to do everything it can to prove that it deserves a spot amongst those sales leaders. The 200 starts at around $22,000 and offers plenty of standard equipment at that price. The new chassis is much more modern and sophisticated than the one it replaces and offers all-wheel-drive and a bevy of safety features.

Introduction

The midsize Chrysler 200 competes in the toughest field of all, against the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, as well as the Chevrolet Malibu and Ford Fusion, all solid midsize sedans. After years of chugging uphill, Chrysler has announced the end is near. The 2017 Chrysler 200 could be the last model year. It’s a good car. If prices drop to get rid of the last of them, you could do worse than to snatch one. The current-generation is a fairly new product.

The Chrysler 200 is stylish, comfortable, and appealing. It’s not as soft as the Nissan Altima, nor as sporty as the Ford Fusion, but rather finds its own way. It’s built on an extended version of the Dodge Dart compact sedan platform and wheelbase.

Not surprisingly, there aren’t many changes for 2017. But then this model was only introduced for 2015, so not many changes were needed.

For 2017, Chrysler 200 gets better looking, with a new package called Dark Appearance, with glossy black 18-inch wheels, halogen headlamps with black moldings, and black exterior trim. It appears the Chrysler 200 is mourning itself.

The base engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder making a decent, if uninspired, 184 horsepower, mated to a sophisticated 9-speed automatic. There’s also a quick V6 making a strong 295 horsepower and using that same transmission with paddle shifters, with all-wheel drive available.

EPA fuel mileage for the four-cylinder is 23 mpg City, 36 Highway, 27 Combined. The V6 gets 19/31/23 mpg, about 1 less mpg with all-wheel drive. Not much if any better than some midsize crossovers.

The safety results are excellent, with the top Good rating in all crash categories from the IIHS, and that includes the difficult small-overlap front test. For its forward collision avoidance system, it was rated Superior, although for headlamps it only got Marginal. Overall it made Top Safety Pick. The NHTSA gave it five stars in everything except rollover, where it got four stars.

Standard safety equipment includes front knee airbags, front side airbags, curtain side airbags, active front headrests, and a rearview camera. The top 200c Platinum model offers heaps of optional safety equipment, including lane-departure warnings and prevention, forward-collision warnings with automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alerts.

Lineup

The 2017 Chrysler 200 is offered in five models: LX, Touring, Limited Platinum, 200S, and 200C Platinum.

The LX comes standard with cloth upholstery, six-way manually adjustable front seats, air conditioning, keyless entry, LED ambient interior lighting, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, a four-speaker AM/FM audio system, a rearview camera, a USB port, an auxiliary input jack, a 12-volt outlet, and 17-inch steel wheels with wheel covers.

The Touring model adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 5.0-inch center touchscreen, Bluetooth, and alloy wheels.

The Limited Platinum gets a compass, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated front seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, two additional speakers, and an 8.4-inch center touchscreen.

The 200S comes with heavy duty brakes, a sport-tuned suspension, paddle shifters, sport cloth seats with leather bolsters, 18-inch satin chrome wheels, acoustic glass windshield, heated mirrors, fog lamps, and black chrome interior accents.

At the top of the lineup is the 200C Platinum, which features LED fog lamps, dual-zone automatic climate control, ambient lighting, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, rear air ducts, a 7.0-inch configurable instrument panel display, nine speakers, and remote starting

A new Alloy Edition for the 200S features a black and caramel interior, chrome exhaust tips, piano black and titanium interior accents, a unique grille, and dark bronze wheels.

Navigation and Sound Group I includes a nine-speaker 506-watt sound system, a navigation system, Bluetooth, HD Radio, SiriusXM Traffic, SiriusXM Travel Link, the Uconnect Access smartphone app, a WiFi hotspot, and the configurable 7.0-inch instrument cluster display.

Walkaround

Sweeping, stylish sheetmetal hides the Chrysler 200’s compact car roots, and gives it sophistication. It flows effortlessly over the long arched roofline. The roofline disguises the reality that it’s built on the wheelbase of a compact car, but the inboard wheels give it away. Still, it’s a nice counterpoint to the taut, sportier look of the Dart. We like the down turned shoulders dropping to the short rear deck, with standard LED taillamps. LED headlamps and running lights are optional.

The attractive body doesn’t have a bad angle. But it has a lot of hints: Saab in the refined front end, Audi A7 and Ford Fusion in the roofline, elegant details from the Genesis G80 and Lexus It looks expensive.

Interior

The cabin is a showpiece. The interior is warm and classy, one of the best in the midsize class. It’s superbly detailed, refined but with a fantastic, tech-centric look. The dash is covered with premium material, while the fit and finish is top notch. There’s an embossed Detroit skyline under the console.

Some design touches are functional and distinctive, like the pass-through storage area in the center console, and the space-saving rotary shift knob, sliding cupholders, big dials for audio and fan, and lots of cubby holes.

The dash is split vertically, allowing a carved-out space below, and it’s adorned in some unusual and attractive colors and grains, including an open-pore wood on the 200C that’s simple and beautiful. The gauges and center display float together in a sleekly curved cutout from the soft-touch dash.

There’s plenty of room in the front seats, while optional sport seats have an ample range of adjustment and good bolsters for long-distance support. Not so roomy in the back seats, which are difficult to climb into because of the door cutouts into the swoopy roofline. There’s less room in the rear seat than in the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, or Ford Fusion. On the upside, there’s a flip-down armrest with storage, and 60/40 seat with a pass-through to the large 16-cubic-foot trunk.

Driving Impressions

Unfortunately the base powertrain doesn’t meet the quality of the cabin. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is the same as used in the Dodge Dart, Jeep Cherokee and Renegade, and in the Chrysler 200 at least, it isn’t strong, Its 183 horsepower and 173 pound-feet of torque should be enough, but acceleration is adequate at best. Meanwhile the nine-speed automatic transmission, which doesn’t have a manual mode, shifts unpredictably and sometimes too slowly, leaving the engine to rev while it waits for the gear to engage.

So we choose the smoother 3.6-liter V6, making 295 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, and having strong acceleration. It uses the same nine-speed with similar issues, although in the V6 we’d say the shifts are too abrupt. But at least that can be overcome by shifting with the standard paddles. But if you’re in ninth gear on the freeway, and want immediate acceleration, you might have to click the paddles three times, because the top three gears are overdrives for better mileage.

The rotary shift dial lets you select a Sport mode that gives the 200 more steering weight and better powertrain response.

The V6 has some torque steer in front-wheel drive, but we think the available all-wheel drive might make it go away, because it sends up to 60 percent of the power to the rear wheels.

The handling is predictable and unremarkable, somewhere in quality between the Nissan Altima and Ford Fusion. The 200 is generally well-behaved, and it rides quite well. It shares the Dart’s front struts and rear four-links, and electric power steering, making it pleasant and progressive, with a firm yet muted feel.

It’s smooth and the steering is reasonably responsive, but its attention drifts as the cornering forces build. It’s definitely not a sport sedan. It feels better as a comfortable 200C than a sporty 200S. Although it looks better as a 200S.

Summary

Great looks, sharp cabin, good ride, acceptable handling, and a smooth and strong although thirsty V6. Chrysler 200 is being discontinued, so look for deals that make this car a good buy.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
