Chrysler's mid-size sedan gunning to take on the Accord, Camry and other heavyweights of the segment, the newly-rejiggedChrysler 200 seems built for measure for Canadian winters, thanks to some carefully conceived standard and optional features that will make your winter driving experience just that much more pleasant, not to mention safer!
The 9-speed automatic transmission wedded to a 2.4L 4-cylinder (or optional 295 HP V6) engine provides sufficient pulling power and acceleration to handle slippery roads, tough climbs and curves on snow-covered roads. Choosing the available all-wheel drive is an attractive option for Canadian motorists in particular, as anyone who has struggled to climb a slippery slope in a poor old two-wheel drive can attest to! Whichever version you choose, you get standard Brake Assist and antilock brakes, another winter must.
Where the newly redesigned and bedecked Chrysler 200 really shines during the winter months, however, is in its roster of standard and optional tech, comfort and safety features inside the cabin. The available Uconnect system with 8.4-inch screen is a highly intuitive infotainment system that not only gives easy and ergonomic access to the audio, Bluetooth and other apps, but allows you to control the heating and ventilation on the seats, as well as the heating on the steering wheel, without having to reach for any additional buttons tucked away somewhere else on the dash or centre console.
Dual-zone climate control is a feature especially appreciated during the colder months of the year, and it is available as an option in the Chrysler 200. Also available as part of the Comfort Package of options is the remote starter, which unsurprisingly always seem to pop up at the top of Canadian motorists' wish lists when the temperature plummets! For added grip and security on icy roads, you can opt for the larger tires on the 18-inch wheels.
Another package to consider when looking at the Chrysler 200 is the Customer Preferred Package, which provides Advanced Brake Assist, Park Assist, rain-sensing wipers and other extras to make winter driving more fun and less risky.
