The 2013 Chrysler 200 is an affordable model that's competitive in terms of features for the money but simply not up to snuff in many other ways.
Fuel economy is important for mid-size sedan shoppers, and in that respect nearly all the other models crush the 200.
And while the 200's interior is pleasantly styled and rather quiet, it looks outdated compared to much of the rest of this class--especially the swoopy Hyundai Sonata and the edgy new Ford Fusion.
The Volkswagen Jetta has crept up in size, and it now offers a a spacious back seat along with an entry price that's in the vicinity of the 200.
Toyota improved comfort, safety, and features in its Camry this past year, and although it has a conservative look like the 200, the Camry has a very roomy interior and comes out on top in gas mileage.
As for the 2013 Chrysler 200 Convertible, it mainly stands as a fleet vehicle for rental agencies in Sun Belt lots, alongside V-6 Ford Mustang drop-tops.
Compared to the Mustang, it has better ride comfort and more trunk space, although the Mustang is much, much more fun to drive.
