The 2013 Chrysler 200 receives only modest changes, with the popular S trim remade as a package for the Touring and Limited trims. A new 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty backs the 200, and the convertible gets an upgraded suspension for a more engaging driving experience.
While the 2012 Chrysler 200's Sebring roots are still evident in its profile, it's a new experience from the driver's seat. The front-wheel drive sedan's strong 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 nearly matches the efficiency of the entry 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, handling is crisp, and the cabin offers a premium feel. After such a drastic transformation for 2011, little is changed for 2012.
In the midsize sedan segment lurk industry-leading stalwarts like the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima, but the 2015 Chrysler 200 is no longer a 2nd-class citizen. In fact, it's not even remotely mistakable for the 1st-generation 200 model it's replacing. Gone are the days where you can get a 200 convertible, but it was the last (and only) holdout from the midsize segment to let go. The front-wheel-drive 200 offers a choice of two engines – a 4-cylinder for fuel-economy and a V6 for fun. The new 9-speed automatic transmission contributes to a smooth ride and respectable fuel figures as well. All-wheel drive is available on 200S and 200C models.
