    If that is the new 200, Im pretty disappointed.
    It's nothing more than a reworked Dart, in stance and appearance.
    It's nothing like the 200c concept.
    Is this the direction they are going? Exchanging moderately selling US models for slow selling Alfaized models that are cheaper to build?
    Hope it's just a mule and not close to the final body or stance.

    Meh....I was really hoping they'd go for a somewhat 200C vibe, this is more like a Camry fighter. I guess that's what dealers need?

    The few lines visible seem more Chevy-ish than Chrysler-ish.

    We'll see, so far my jaw sure ain't dropping. I hope this isn't it.
    Well it's built on a CUSW platform, so that's somewhat to be expected. But I'm definitely with you on this.

    Does not look Chrysler at all. The bulge in the back over the bowtie says a lot. Kinda looks "wingish" but it isn't. This is a blowtie.

    Remember the promise that common Platforms didn't mean common parts and architecture, however once the head bean counter realizes the cost savings of simply rebadging, then we just end up with Stratus-Sirrus, Intrepid-Vision, Liberty-Nitro, Aspen-Durango and Dodge Dart, Jeep Dart and Chrysler Dart.
    It looks like the Chrysler wings, but hopefully it's a misdirection by GM.

    I can distinctly see the bowtie covered by fabric, the stretched fabric create the wing look

    That roofline looks a bit Mercedes-ish to me ;)

    Those are the same wheels that Chrysler has been using on mules and pre-production pilot builds for CUSW based vehicles...

    So I'm pretty sure, whatever this is... it is from Chrysler Group LLC.

    One thing's for sure, it's not a Dart. Or a Cherokee. :p

    When Burlapp (the guy whose site this came from) questioned why it was running around with Chevy Cruzes, I also thought that this isn't the new 200, but rather the next Cruze.

    Not enough information for me to make any conclusions.

    Whatever it is, it looks fine; it does not look like a game changer, though --unless it has five headlights and a rear-mounted electric motor... :p

    If this is a Chrysler 200 mule(which im not convinced it is) then why is it testing against a cruze? They are two different segments. Could this possibly be the 100 we thought was a hatch?

    Definitely looks more GM Epsilon based to me than anything... which wouldn't make sense for a Cruze... but since Delta and Epsilon are really heavily related I guess it stands to reason...
