Starting at the front, the Chrysler 200 sedan shows up with an unexpectedly fresh face. The shape is smooth, rounded, and capped with a refined grille and front end. It almost picks up where Saab left off, and it's a new and elegant appearance for Chrysler that looks more expensive than it is. The roofline is long, and tapers down to the tail and its short, flush deck lid. The 200 isn't following the playbook for either the current Chrysler 300 or its departed 200 predecessor, but it all works surprisingly well.
The 2016 Chrysler 200 is, inside, superbly detailed, and now transformed onto the same level as the Jeep Cherokee and Dodge Durango. All the functionality is there, with sliding cupholders and plenty of cubbies, while the dash is covered with top-notch materials, fits, and finishes. A number of design touches are both functional and distinctive—like the pass-through storage area in the center console, and the rotary shift controller.
The 2016 Chrysler 200 doesn't easily let on that it's closely related to the Dodge Dart. It looks far more sophisticated, with its sheet metal flowing effortlessly the 200's arched roofline and cockpit; it's a nice counterpoint to the taut, definitely sportier look of the Dart.
The Chrysler 200 with the optional 3.6-liter V-6 barrels ahead of some sedans that come only with 4-cylinder engines. Here it's rated at 295 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque, and subjectively, by real-world, pin-you-in-your-seat standards, it boasts the strongest acceleration in the segment.
From the driver's seat, there's good comfort for 6-footers, as well as good knee room from the dash design; and the optional sport seats have an ample range of adjustment and good bolsters for long-distance support. You also sit a bit low in the 200—so so taller drivers will see as much of the 200's headliner as they will of the road ahead.
The back seat is a place for small adults and teenagers; but small door cuts and the arc of the roofline keep it from feeling accommodating for taller adults. The 200 has 37.4 inches of rear-seat head room at its highest point: it's a competitive number, but it's clear that the peak comes well forward of where it does on cars like the Fusion or Altima.
