A fairly roomy and comfortable backseat coupled with easy-access Latch anchors should make this sedan even more appealing to parents with kids in child-safety seats.

2015 Chrysler 200 Review


Fact is, the bar for the 2015 Chrysler 200's redesign to be considered an improvement was not high. But even if up was its only viable direction, Cars.com reviewer Jennifer Geiger says the new midsize sedan soars to new heights in style, comfort and performance. Geiger gushes over the upgrades, starting with a "flowing, aerodynamic" exterior design that favors refinement over aggressiveness, with an elegant interior to match. Throw in a couple new powertrains — a capable four-cylinder and a particularly impressive V-6 — and a starting price less than its predecessor, and this recovering underachiever realizes grand ambitions.

2015 Chrysler 200: First Drive


I've been an editor and reviewer at Cars.com for just more than two years; in that time, I've reviewed the Chrysler 200 three times, and found it lacking in just about every way. Apparently the fourth time is the charm for Chrysler's midsize sedan.

With the redesigned-for-2015 200, Chrysler finally has a legitimate contender in the midsize class. The sedan is refined, stylish, comfortable and affordable; competitors should be worried.

2015 Chrysler 200: Explaining the Trim Levels


A redesigned player enters the mid-size sedan segment about twice a year, making it one of the most hotly contested segments as well as a best-selling one. The current-generation Chrysler 200's sales for 2013 were 122,480, which was near the bottom of the mid-size sedan segment. It garnered roughly a third of the Honda Accord's 366,678 yearly sales, which is the country's second best-seller to the Toyota Camry and its 408,484 in yearly sales.

2015 Chrysler 200 Up Close

The 2015 Chrysler 200 only has one direction to go when it hits dealerships this spring. Potential buyers of the slickly styled redesigned sedan will be confronted with varying standard features on the four trims levels, including two engine choices and front- or all-wheel drive.

2015 Chrysler 200 Dials Up More Storage Space


It may be difficult to get riled up about something as boring as a gear shift, but the change to an electronic gear dial by Chrysler in the all-new 2015 200 leads to other modifications that are worth getting excited about.

The center console area has been transformed from a cheap plastic bin full of noisy rattles in the last 200 iteration to a sleek and modern functional space built for today's tech-savvy families. By eliminating the bulky traditional gear shift, Chrysler has created additional space for creative functionality.

2015 Chrysler 200 Video

Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays says that shoppers should make sure not to confuse the new-for-2015 Chrysler 200 with older versions of this car because the redesigned midsize sedan promises to deliver where the old model fell short. It's about an inch longer and wider than the outgoing version and wears much sleeker, more fluid styling outside and nicer materials inside. Watch the video for more.

The black sheep of Chrysler's lineup got a total makeover for 2015, with sleek new styling outside, an interior full of comfort and convenience features, and updated powertrains that promise better fuel economy.

More 2014 Detroit Auto Show Coverage

The new 200 is built on an Alfa Romeo chassis and is a huge departure from the outgoing model in just about every way. A sleek, sloping roofline and more angular head- and taillight designs are the exterior highlights, but not all the flash is on the outside. Under the hood, four- and six-cylinder engines are available, along with optional all-wheel drive and a standard nine-speed automatic transmission.

2015 Chrysler 200: Up Close


With the new 2015 Chrysler 200, Chrysler finally has fielded an entry in the midsize sedan segment that no longer requires excuses, asterisks or other caveats when being talked about. An all-new car with Italian guts has replaced the old Mitsubishi-based Sebring/200 sedan, and none too soon.

More 2014 Detroit Auto Show Coverage

In person, the new 200 is long, low and sleek, but doesn't break any new ground for styling. One can point to nearly everything on the car and say, "I've seen that before," but put it all together and it's appealing and attractive. From some angles, it looks like a 4/5th-scale Audi A7, which is not at all a bad thing. Family sedans aren't meant to be wild and crazy; they're meant to be widely appealing, and Chrysler has done well in this regard.

The Chrysler Sebring is dead, and has been dead at least in name since the arrival of the rebranded Chrysler 200 for the 2010 model year, but now Chrysler has not just killed off the last vestiges of that reviled sedan but buried it deep in a place the company never wants to visit again.

More 2014 Detroit Auto Show Coverage

Behold the new 2015 Chrysler 200, a completely new sedan from the wheels to the wipers, built on an Alfa Romeo chassis, sporting fully modern styling inside and out, equipped with state-of-the-art powertrains and arriving in showrooms later this year. This is the second major collaboration between Chrysler and Italian owners Fiat (the first was the 2013 Dodge Dart), and it looks pretty solid.
