2015 Chrysler 200: What the critics say

How did the new Chrysler 200 fare with the critics? The price starts at $21,795.

AutoWeek.com
The new 200 is “a make-or-break product” for Chrysler. Midsize sedans outsell every other vehicle segment in the U.S., and Fiat’s Detroit division has needed something a lot better than the old 200 to grab a healthy slice of that pie. Fortunately, the reimagined version represents “a lot of car for the money.” The 200 may feel a touch smaller than its chief rivals, but it’s “comfortable and capable on the road” and combines fluid exterior lines with “near-luxury appointments” inside.

Jalopnik.com
It certainly delivers “more character and better design” than the segment’s Japanese stalwarts. Opt for the full suite of extras, including all-wheel drive and a 3.6-liter V-6 engine, and you’ll still be paying just $34,465 for a four-door that’s “believable as a near-premium car.” The 200 can’t match the Mazda 6’s performance in turns, but “it’s more of a handler than most.”

Car and Driver
The 200 offers the segment’s most powerful V-6 as well as the class’s first nine-speed transmission, yet it provides “none of the mosts we care most about,” like being the most fun or most stylish. “Neither is it the least of anything,” though, and in a market segment that rewards practicality with massive sales, “somewhere in the middle is not a bad place to be.”
