Chrysler, “America’s Import,” has graced the automotive industry with another gem.
This one, the shiny new 2015 Chrysler 200, features an all-new design which has been met with rave reviews and impressive accolades.
Before we scope out its enviable makeover, let’s first look at the brass tacks of the 2015 Chrysler 200.
A Closer Look at America’s Latest Import
Starting with a MSRP of $21,800, the 2015 Chrysler 200 is the only car in its mid-size sedan class with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Equipped with a 2.4-L Tigershark MultiAir II four-cylinder engine, the 2015 Chrysler 200 is able to reach 295 horsepower without sacrificing fuel economy – it gets 36 highway mpg.
Able to outrun its competitors, the 2015 Chrysler 200 is also available with a Best-in-Class 3.6-L Pentastar V6 engine, producing the same 295 horsepower with 262 lb.-ft. of torque, leaving the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, and Chevy Malibu struggling to keep up. Struggle though they might, they just can’t compete with the power of the 2015 Chrysler 200.
Even with this power boost, the 2015 Chrysler 200 maintains good fuel economy at 32 highway mpg.
Chrysler collected quite a collection of safety kudos with the release of the 2015 Chrysler 200.
When shopping for a safe car for you and your family, the 2015 Chrysler 2015 should be at the top of your list, just as it was at the top of these lists.
For starters, it was the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) Top Safety Pick and the 2015 Chrysler 200 FWD earned a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Available safety features represent the best in current technology and include: Forward Collision Warning (FCW) with active braking, Parkview Rear Backup Camera with dynamic grid lines, adaptive cruise control (ACC) with Stop and Go functionality, Blind Spot Monitoring System, advanced All-Wheel Drive, Electric Park Brake with Safehold, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Parallel and Class-Exclusive Perpendicular Park Assist System, complete with eight airbags.
Even MAMA approves. The Midwest Automotive Media Association named the 2015 Chrysler 200 the “Family Car of the Year,” and the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) named it “The Midsize Car of Texas” for the past two years.
While those awards are proof that the 2015 Chrysler 200 is beautiful on the inside, wait until you see what they’re saying about its looks.
There’s no place like home.
Although the madeover Chrysler 200 features a brand new,updated design, the work was done in its hometown Detroit design studio. With the recent, post-recession turmoil in the automotive industry, this car is something of a phoenix rising from the ashes.
Gives Good Face
So said Madonna about Rita Hayworth in her hit single “Vogue.”
Classically beautiful, yet modern, the new 200 shares a platform with the Dodge Dart and Jeep Cherokee, but you would never know it by it’s mature, sleek style, and coupe-like proportions. The sculpted curves give it a windswept elegance and unmistakable sophistication.
Available in four stunning trim levels, each one signaling a variety of bells and whistles in the form of upgrades, this car offers color customization in a nine-color palette: Vivid Blue Pearl Coat, Black Clear Coat, Bright White Clear Coat, Billet Silver Metallic Clear Coat, Granite Crystal Metallic Clear Coat, Velvet Red Pearl Coat, Lunar White Tri-Coat Pearl, Ceramic Blue Clear Coat (exclusive for 200S), and Phantom Black Tri-Coat Pearl.
We’re talking Rita Hayworth on wheels.
Interior Refinement to Match its New Looks
If this car’s exterior is a study in improved aerodynamics, the interior is a crash course in updated ergonomics, complete with increased storage and additional, cutting-edge connectivity.
Additional soft-touch enhancements make every interior inch of this car and comfortable and luxurious ride. Not to mention spacious, able to easily accommodate four adult passengers.
After eight editors at Ward’s Auto dedicated two months to driving and evaluating the 2015 Chrysler 200, they had no choice but to award it the highly sought-after 10 Best Interior Award for 2014. Ward’s assesses and honors vehicles based on interior details like fit and finish, material, comfort, and design harmony.
The 2015 Chrysler 200 left nothing to be desired and was deemed a “world class fit and finish.”
Between the actual performance and seemingly endless awards, this car is poised to become a legendary Chrysler icon and there is no better time to get in on the action and test drive this beauty.
2015 Chrysler 200 vs. 2015 Ford Fusion
These are two very worthy opponents.
When compared, the two practically go head-to-head in terms of similar sizes, the number of passengers they can comfortably accommodate, and the amount of storage space.
However, the 2015 Chrysler 200 edges out the 2015 Ford Fusion in horsepower; fuel economy 36 mpg to Ford’s 34 mpg; not to mention affordability, MSRP $21,800 compared to the Fusion’s $21,910.
Okay, so the Chrysler 200 is faster, cheaper, and gets better gas mileage. Oh, and it has a 9-speed automatic transmission compared to the Fusion’s six.
Let’s be honest, those are three deal-breaking categories when it comes to comparing vehicles. In daily driving, not much else matters. Moreover, those lucky enough to drive both vehicles report that the Chrysler 200 is way more fun to drive.
Isn’t that the point of driving? Sure, specs and numbers are crucial, but the ultimate decision comes down to how a car makes us feel when we’re behind the wheel, in our own mobile sanctuary.
Even in a close race, there can be only one winner and that winner is hands-down the 2015 Chrysler 200.
When it comes to buying a new mid-size sedan, the 2015 Chrysler 200 is the best choice because it is the best in its class.

For those who don’t know, Consumers Digest gives this word to the vehicle which presents the most value for the cost in its respective class.
