Introduction
The 2015 Chrysler 200 is a midsize sedan that competes against a long list of family-sized 4-door cars. Among the best-selling models in this class are the Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, and Toyota Camry.

Models and Features
Four versions of the new Chrysler 200 are available. By upgrading from the least expensive model, the 200 LX, to the 200 Limited, buyers will receive aluminum wheels, LED running lights, dressier exterior detailing, a cosmetic engine cover, and a spare tire in place of a tire service kit. Inside, the 200 Limited provides an infotainment system with a 5-in. screen and Bluetooth, added ways to connect and charge devices, additional stereo speakers, a compass, and one-touch front passenger window operation.

The 200S is the sporty version of Chrysler's new midsize sedan. It includes fog lights, 18-in. Satin Carbon aluminum wheels, sport suspension, more powerful battery, blacked-out exterior trim, heated side mirrors, and dual exhaust outlets. The 200S model's interior features transmission shift paddles on a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cloth and leather seats, an 8-way power driver's seat with 4-way power lumbar support, upgraded trim and lighting, and a one-year subscription to satellite radio. This trim level also gets acoustic windshield and front door glass for a quieter cabin, according to Chrysler.

At the top of the lineup, the 2015 Chrysler 200C is equipped with an exclusive ride-and-handling suspension, 17-in. Satin Silver aluminum wheels, chrome exterior trim, and side mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators. Leather is standard for this trim level, along with dual-zone automatic climate control with a humidity sensor and rear-seat air ducts. The 200C also includes a keyless Enter 'N Go passive entry system, 6-way power front passenger's seat, auto-dimming rearview mirror, universal garage door opener, remote engine starting, and a 7-in. driver information display. This is the only version of the new 200 that comes standard with a reversing camera.

Under the Hood
A 184-horsepower, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine is standard for each of the Chrysler 200's trim levels. It powers the car's front wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission equipped with a rotary-style E-Shift gear selector. On the 200S, paddle shifters are included.

As an option for the 200S and 200C, a 295-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine delivers 111 extra horsepower to the front wheels. An AWD system is optional with the V-6 engine, and when added to the 200C the transmission gains paddle shifters. Chrysler notes that the 200 Sedan's optional AWD system includes a driveline disconnect feature designed to conserve fuel.

Chrysler provides a 5-year/100,000-mile warranty on the 200's powertrain, along with free roadside assistance during the same period of time.

Fuel Economy
As might be expected, the more powerful V-6 engine is not as fuel-efficient as the standard 4-cylinder engine. According to the EPA, the 4-cylinder is rated to get 23 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. The optional V-6 should return 19 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. If you add AWD to the Chrysler 200S or 200C, those numbers drop to 18 mpg and 29 mpg, respectively.

Safety and Technology
Chrysler offers several safety and technology upgrades for the new 200 sedan. In terms of safety equipment, the 200 can be optioned with a 9-1-1 Call system, reversing camera, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, and forward-collision warning with Active Braking.

Comfort and convenience upgrades include heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, and an infotainment and navigation system that includes a color 8.4-in. touch-screen display. Automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control with Stop and Go, Parallel Park Assist with Full Stop, and Perpendicular Park Assist are also available for the 2015 Chrysler 200.
