2014 Chrysler 200 vs. Its Competition

2014 Chrysler 200
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

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The 200 can seem outdated compared to the swoopy Hyundai Sonata and the edgy new Ford Fusion, and it doesn't have their space or features, or the Fusion's dynamic excellence.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.

Quick Specs
7.2
The Chrysler 200 offers lots of comfort and value, but looks outdated and lacks refinement.
9.0
The 2014 Ford Fusion has stunning good looks, satisfying performance, and top-notch safety and fuel economy--all without skimping on the interior space and ride comfort that really means something to mid-size sedan shoppers.
8.4
The 2014 Ford Mustang delivers some of the best performance-car bang for the buck, all with a level of sophistication that's surprising given the brash sound and classic looks.
8.2
The 2014 Hyundai Sonata remains one of the best buys among mid-size sedans--although with so many much-improved rival models, it's no longer such a standout.
7.8
The 2014 Toyota Camry may not be as attractive as some of its competitors, but it's now more than ever the most sensible choice for shoppers focused on value, frugality and comfort above all else.
