The Chrysler 200 competes with a small cross-set of sedans and convertibles; it's sized between today's compacts and mid-sizers, making it a good match against the VW Jetta, which has much better ride and handling, but plainer looks and a less rich-looking cockpit.
The 200 can seem outdated compared to the swoopy Hyundai Sonata and the edgy new Ford Fusion, and it doesn't have their space or features, or the Fusion's dynamic excellence.
Toyota improved comfort, safety, and features in its Camry in recent years, 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 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.
