Description:
Pros:
  • More than capable V6 engine
  • Much improved interior design and quality
  • Lots of standard equipment makes it a strong value/li>
Cons:
  • Interior space is on the small side
  • Available trunk space isn't very much either
Ruling: The new 2011 Chrysler 200 replaces the lackluster Sebring sedan. While the new name may make this mid-size Chrysler sedan seem like an all-new car, it actually is just a highly refined mid-cycle freshening of the old Sebring.

The 200 is available in LX, Touring, Limited and S trims. Two engines are available. A four-cylinder that makes 173-horsepower and comes with a four-speed automatic, or the new Pentastar V6 that makes 283-horsepower and comes with a six-speed automatic.

CarReview's opinion of the 2011 Chrysler 200

Likes:
  • Eager V6 engine
  • Quiet interior
  • Sporty handling
Dislikes:
  • Clueless transmission
  • Clueless climate controls
  • Clueless seats

Verdict: I wish Chrysler had saved their grand reveal campaign for a car that was truly all-new and not just a makeover and a new badge. But I think the makeover was significant enough for Detroit to prove that is has what it takes to do things the right way. Combine the styling improvements with a starting price of $19,245 for the LX 4-cyl or $23,495 for the Touring with the optional V6, and you have a compelling alternative to the imports.

If you are in the market for a mid-sized sedan, the 200 deserves a test drive. Detroit has come a long way and I‘m happy to report that the home-team is delivering much better products than they were a few years ago.
