Chrysler 200

With a name change and heavily revised exterior, you could be fooled into thinking that the 200 represents an all-new car. But Chrysler’s new mid-sized sedan is little more than a heavily revised Sebring.

The exterior retains the same side profile as the existing model, albeit with tighter definition to the details. The car sports a new face, incorporating the signature grille and accompanied by new projector headlamps, whilst the Crossfire-esque ribbed bonnet has been dropped in favor of a smoother item to complement the overall cleaner surfaces of the car. Around the back, new LED clusters accompany a new, higher rear deck, whilst a revised bumper detail incorporates a black rear diffuser for a more sporting look.

Inside, the 200's updates are in-line with its platform sibling, the Dodge Avenger. Chrysler has tried to ensure that the interior is able to compete with European rivals in terms of quality and equipment. As a result, this is where we see the most significant changes over the Sebring. Also new are a revised instrument panel, bezels, gauge face and a more ergonomic steering wheel to complete the interior revisions.
