2015 Chrysler 200 Reviews, Prices and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Chrysler 200 Concept. 2015 Chrysler 200 changes is one brand new car from Chrysler that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Chrysler 200 Release Date.
The 2015 Chrysler 200 ranks 7 out of 21 Affordable Midsize Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Chrysler 200, as well as reliability and safety data. Reviewers like the powerful V6 engine option and premium cabin materials in the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200, though they note that it has a tight rear seat and noisy base engine.
Chrysler has completely redesigned the 200 midsize sedan for the latest year, transforming it into a legitimate contender in one of the market’s most demanding and hotly-contested segments. An efficient nine-speed transmission and high-tech infotainment, convenience and safety features bolster its appeal, but it’s the 200’s shapely exterior and well-crafted cabin that really set it apart.
Outside, the 200 is distinguished by a rippled hood and sleek headlights that are deftly integrated into a narrow grille. A graceful, coupe-look roofline and integrated decklid spoiler add spice to the rear, as do LED taillights similar to those of the 200’s corporate sibling, the Maserati Quattroporte.
The 2015 Chrysler 200 comes standard with a four-cylinder engine that critics think provides adequate power but is louder than rival four-cylinder engines. Critics prefer the 200’s available V6 because they say it has potent acceleration and a growling exhaust sound. All 200 models come with a nine-speed automatic transmission that reviewers say shifts smoothly but is a little slow to downshift during hard acceleration and sometimes has trouble finding the right gear. According to the EPA, the four-cylinder 200 gets 23/36 mpg city/highway, which is on par for the class, while the V6 model gets 19/32 mpg, which is slightly less than V6-powered rivals’ fuel economy. Reviewers say the 200 is reasonably nimble for a midsize car. Most write that the 200’s steering is precise, though a few think the steering is a bit numb. The Chrysler 200 receives praise for its powerful brakes and compliant ride over uneven pavement.
Although the redesigned 2015 Chrysler 200 isn’t much different in size from last year’s 200, you don’t have to look at it very long to realize this is a radically different midsize sedan. The styling itself is quite striking for a car in this price range, and indeed it ushers in an all-new design language for the Chrysler brand. Inside, the cabin has been overhauled as well and features nicer materials and a slick new touchscreen electronics interface that’s refreshingly easy to use. In addition, new safety features like blind-spot monitoring and forward collision warning systems put the 2015 200 on more equal footing with the leaders in this class. If the upgrades on the 2015 Chrysler 200 stopped right here, it would still represent a major improvement over last year’s 200 sedan. But the changes underneath are even more transformative.
The mission of the new-for-’15 Chrysler 200 is a challenging one: Represent the Fiat/Chrysler empire in the hotly contested mid-size-sedan segment. Although the basic recipe for success is hardly a secret, Chrysler’s previous Sebring/200 mid-sizers always felt undercooked. So when the 2015 200 made its debut at the 2014 Detroit auto show, hope sprung anew that the maker had finally found the right mix of ingredients that make cars such as the Honda Accord and the Mazda 6 so good.

2015 Chrysler 200 Interior
Standard equipment on the base LX includes 17-inch steel wheels, keyless ignition and entry, air-conditioning, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, manually height-adjustable front seats, a 60/40-split-folding rear seat and a four-speaker sound system with USB/iPod integration and an auxiliary audio input (a CD player is not included). A Uconnect option package provides Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and a 5-inch touchscreen display for the audio system.
Standard features in the 2015 Chrysler 200 include proximity key, a four-speaker audio system, a USB input and Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system. Available features include leather upholstery, front seats that are heated, ventilated and power-adjustable, dual-zone automatic climate control, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality, a nine-speaker audio system, satellite radio, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hot spot capability, an upgraded Uconnect system with a 5-inch touch screen and a Uconnect system with navigation and an 8.4-inch touch screen.
Basic black abounds, accented by thin strips of chrome breaking up surfaces and delineating control groups on the dash, doors, and console. Chrysler’s rotary gear selector shares space in the console with the electric parking brake and large round climate controls, all appropriately sized for easy, intuitive operation by the meaty paws of corn-fed North Americans. The instrument panel follows suit, placing two large and legible dials front and center, the space between them occupied by an information screen and segmented fuel-level and engine-temperature gauges. The layout might not be cutting edge, but you’ll rarely waste time looking for switchgear or controls. Our test car’s kit didn’t include Fiat/Chrysler’s now-ubiquitous 8.4-inch Uconnect screen, instead making do with a 5.0-inch version, which still provides Bluetooth connectivity but lacks navigation.
2015 Chrysler 200 Exterior
Given the high level of competition in the midsize sedan class, you’ll definitely want to check out a few other candidates before making your decision. Top alternatives to the Chrysler 200 include the Ford Fusion, Honda Accord and Nissan Altima, all of which offer more spacious accommodations for passengers. The Ford should be especially appealing for shoppers with an eye for style, plus it’s also available with AWD, while the Honda and Nissan are superb in the fuel economy department. Less often considered is the 2015 Mazda 6, also an impressively fuel-efficient sedan that also happens to be the best-handling car in this class. Although the 2015 Chrysler 200 doesn’t have any major advantages over these rivals, it’s certainly worth a look if you want a midsize car with a distinctive design, well-rounded driving dynamics and an easy-to-use electronics interface.
That package includes both an available LaneSense lane departure warning system as well as Rear Cross Path Detection and a Full-Speed Collision Warning-Plus system (with autonomous braking under some situations), plus adaptive cruise control and rain-sensing wipers. The 200C will also offer Chrysler’s first automated parking system for both parallel and perpendicular situations.
Optional on the S is the Navigation and Sound Group, which provides an upgraded instrument panel, an 8.4-inch touchscreen electronics interface, a navigation system, smartphone app integration, text-to-voice capability for compatible phones, an upgraded nine-speaker sound system and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Also available are xenon headlights, 19-inch wheels, a blind-spot warning system (with rear cross-traffic alerts), a panoramic sunroof and full leather upholstery with ventilated front seats.
Producing 184 horsepower and 173 lb-ft of torque, the naturally aspirated 2.4-liter Tigershark engine is up to the task of hauling around the 200’s 3488 pounds, but not without registering a few noisy complaints. Peak torque comes on at 4600 rpm, right around the same spot where the sounds emanating from under the hood begin to get gruff. It’ll pull hard to the electronically limited 6500-rpm fuel cutoff, but the soundtrack leans to the death-metal side of the musical spectrum. Thankfully, the average buyer will rarely venture past 6000 rpm, aside from the occasional passing maneuver. With nine speeds to choose from in the ZF-designed automatic, there’s seldom a time when the engine is caught lumbering in the wrong ratio. The shifts are almost imperceptible, save for foot-down moments when it’ll skip a gear on the way to finding the optimal ratio. Sixty mph comes up in 8.4 seconds, the quarter-mile mark arriving in 16.6 with a trap speed of 85 mph. Compare those to the 7.4- and 15.9-second times recorded by an Accord EX-L Sport automatic we tested in a recent comparo with the Mazda 6, and then consider that the Chrysler is light years away from the Honda in high-rpm refinement.
2015 Chrysler 200 Engine
All 2015 Chrysler 200 sedans come standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 184 hp and 173 pound-feet of torque. Optional on the S and C trims is a 3.6-liter V6 engine that’s good for 295 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come matched to a nine-speed automatic transmission (with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters on the 200S). Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive optional with the V6. In addition, the V6 also features a Sport mode that sharpens up engine and transmission responses and provides slightly heavier steering effort.
The 200 is Chrysler’s new entry in a fiercely competitive mid-size-sedan segment. Basically, it’s a stretched Dart with a nicer interior and stylish sheetmetal. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder is standard, and a 3.6-liter V-6 is available. Front-wheel drive is standard on both engines; the V-6 offers all-wheel drive, which is unique in this segment. A nine-speed automatic handles shifting duties. Too much weight, slow steering, and a lack of precision keep the V-6 from being a performance standout.
Chrysler anticipates that 70 percent of the buyers for its new mid-size sedan will choose a four-cylinder powerplant, which is why the 2.4-liter Tigershark-equipped 200 is the focus of this test. (A 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 is also available.) Our mid-level Limited test car arrived at our offices wearing subdued Granite Crystal metallic paint and a set of satin silver 18-inch aluminum wheels shod with 235/45 Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 tires.
