Chrysler has positioned its Chrysler 200 model to appeal to consumers in the mid-sized family sedan segment, notably through a calibrated combination of affordability and stylish pizzazz. After undergoing a major redesign in 2015, the 2016 is the product of more-minor tinkering, that serves mainly to enhance its appeal even further in terms of offering value.
The most noticeable change in the new 2016 version of the Chrysler 200 is the more refined grille incorporated in a rounded front end, which connects to a long roofline. The effect is of elegance that is almost out of place in the 200's price category.
An Inviting Interior
Offering a surprisingly roomy interior that invites front and back passengers to ease back on even longer road trips, the new 200features some interesting touches like sliding cupholders and working cubbies, as well as a flip-down armrest with a storage space. The back seat in all trims of the 2016 Chrysler 200 is foldable in a 60/40 split format.
Upgradable for More Luxury and Performance
Generous as the base model is in terms of offering standard tech, safety and comfort features, other trims and options give you the choice of upgrading to a higher level of luxury. These include an enhanced A/C system, alloy wheels, LED ambient interior lighting, a tilt/telescopic and heated steering wheel, heated mirrors and a remote starter.
Choose the 200C model and you get an upgraded V6 engine and the option for all-wheel drive. Treat yourself to leather upholstery, heated front seats, automatic A/C and power driver and passenger seats, and you'll feel like your new 2016 Chrysler 200 is sniffing at the heels of the BMWs and Audis of this world.
Safety a Chrysler Priority
Chrysler has focused strongly in recent years on being an industry leader in terms of incorporating new driver-assist and safety technologies into their cars, and not just at the top end of their roster. The UConnect system comes with the Navigation and Sound package, while the SatefyTec package adds advanced brake assist, blind spot detection, collision warning, park assist and more.
These additions have helped make the Chrysler 200 a top performer in crash tests, and provided another check on the list when comparing it to others in its segment. Chrysler's commitment to offering solid value through aggressive pricing on a car equipped with the latest technologies is bringing the 2016 Chrysler 200 sedan to the front of the class for families in Canada.
