It’s official: new Chrysler 200

by David Zatz on

The official 2015 Chrysler 200 materials have been released.

With the first nine-speed automatic transmission in its class, the 2015 Chrysler 200 delivers better acceleration than the 2014s, with 13% better economy (four-cylinder; 7% higher on V6). There are all wheel drive and park-assist options, though both require customers to pony up for the top models: 200S and 200C.

The base 200 LX comes in at a slightly lower price than the outgoing 2014 Chrysler 200, but with no rebates expected, it will cost customers thousands more. In return for the extra money, they get a slightly larger interior, superior handling, a quicker powertrain with better highway mileage, an improved interior, and many standard features that are optional on the current base 200. (Only 200C buyers who spring for the luxury package get the interior pictured below, though.)

Every 200 will come with filtered air conditioning, six-way front seats, remote USB port, tilt/telescopic steering column, LED interior lighting, tachometer, cruise, variable wipers, dual-note horns, 8 airbags, and active front head restraints, among other features (see the full list). The base price is $21,700, plus around a thousand dollars for destination fees. The 200S and 200C appear to be the best deals, though, at 24,495 and 25,995.
