A Smaller, More Stylish Midsize Sedan

Following last year's total redesign, the stylish Chrysler 200 returns for 2016 with few changes. Its sheet metal is sleek, the interior is class-above, and the whole package is about 200 times more appealing than the previous generation. It's smaller inside than most of its competitors and long-term reliability is not yet proven, but Chrysler's midsize sedan is worth a look if you're looking for more expressive style and a sportier feel than your typical midsize sedan.

Driving It

The 2016 Chrysler 200 is especially fun to drive when equipped with the V6, as highlighted in our full review: "Teamed with Chrysler's new 9-speed automatic, the V6-powered 200 goes from mild-mannered 4-door to athletic touring sedan, especially when the transmission is placed in Sport mode."

All-Wheel Safety

The 2016 Chrysler 200 is one of just three midsize sedans to offer all-wheel drive, a group that also includes the Subaru Legacy and Ford Fusion. Fuel economy takes a small hit, but for buyers in many parts of the country it's a small price to pay for the added confidence.

Road Trip!

There may be no better way to truly learn the ins and outs of a vehicle than taking it on an extended road trip. Follow along as KBB Editor Jason Allan and his family take a Chrysler 200 on a 1,200-mile adventure across the desert Southwest.

Build and Price

The 2016 Chrysler 200 starts at a hair under $23,000 and tops out at over $39,000 fully loaded. Build and price your own 2016 Chrysler 200 to unlock its Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.

What Owners Have to Say

KBB.com reader and Chrysler 200 owner Alton offered these insights: "The Good, the styling, interior design and comfort, the features of U-Connect, ride and performance. The Bad, the car rattles like a very cheaply made vehicle." Read more Chrysler 200 consumer reviews.
