If you're looking for an affordable midsize sedan with great visual appeal and some of the best performance, safety and technology features the segment has to offer, you owe it to yourself to check out the 2017 Chrysler 200.
The 2017 Chrysler 200 is available in five trim levels: LX, Touring, Limited Platinum, 200S and 200C Platinum. Here are a few reasons you need to stop in to see the newest model.
New for 2017: The newest 200 Touring trim is now available with a Dark Appearance Package with black moldings for the halogen headlights and a special gloss black exterior treatment. The package also includes 18-inch wheels with a Jet Black Gloss treatment. 200S models also offer an Alloy Edition Package with Titanium and Dark Bronze finishes along with a sport-tuned suspension. With the available all-wheel drive system, driving enjoyment is brought to a new level.
State-of-the-art performance: Regardless of whether you choose the 2.4-liter Tigershark® MultiAir® II four-cylinder engine or the 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6, you get an optimal blend of power and fuel efficiency. The four-cylinder engine makes 184 hp and 173 lb/ft of torque with fuel estimates rated up to 23 mpg city and 36 mpg highway, while the V6 produces a best-in-class 295 hp and 262 lb/ft of torque while still returning 19 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. V6-equipped models can also be paired with an all-wheel drive system with a fully disconnecting rear axle that helps maximize performance and traction while also improving fuel economy when the AWD system isn't needed. Both engines are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Segment leading safety: The 200 was named a "2016 Top Safety Pick+" from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (with a "Superior" rating in Front Crash Prevention), on top of its five-star overall designation from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The sedan comes with 60 available safety and security features including advanced technologies, such as Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus, Forward Collision Warning-Plus, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning-Plus with Lane Keep Assist, Blind-spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path detection. These technologies work to help you prevent an accident from occurring in the first place. . On top of that, the available Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist feature takes the guesswork out of finding and getting into a parking spot.
Standout features: From the Uconnect® infotainment system with the largest touchscreen in its class to the 10-speaker premium audio system that cranks out over 500-watts, the 200 is full of distinctive features that help it stand out. Other standouts include a dual-pane sunroof, ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, premium leather upholstery and ambient lighting.
The midsize sedan segment is among the most competitive in the entire automotive industry, accounting for one out of every six vehicles sold, and nearly two million annually. The Chrysler 200 is the midsize for those who want standout design, advanced safety features and amenities to go along with the excellent value buyers have come to expect from Chrysler.
