...For all of its foibles, the 200 is a good value instead of just a cheap car.
...with the roof down and a windblocker in place over the rear seat, conversations with our passenger were not problem, even at freeway speeds.
We think it looks better with a genuine ragtop, which is well insulated and without compromise.
Both the 2011 Chrysler 200 sedan and the Convertible are significantly better values than the Sebring was, particularly with their upgraded safety and entertainment features--so long as you opt for non-base cars. Some entertainment features go absent on some 200s as well, leaving Chrysler without a response to vehicles like the Fusion, the Optima and the Sonata.
The $19,995 Chrysler 200 LX sedan has air conditioning, power windows/locks/mirrors, cruise control, telescoping/tilting steering wheel with audio controls, AM/FM/CD player, and the four-cylinder/four-speed powertrain. Bluetooth is an option here, while it's standard on the $19,995 Hyundai Sonata--and this 200 doesn't offer satellite radio or a USB port at all, though it does come with an auxiliary audio jack, all of which are standard on the Hyundai.
The $21,995 200 Touring sedan adds automatic climate control, a Homelink garage door opener, a power driver seat, and satellite radio. A sunroof is an option, as is Bluetooth and a DVD/hard-drive audio system with 28GB of storage. The powertrain is the four-cylinder teamed with the six-speed automatic, with the V-6/six-speed automatic an option.
The $24,995 Limited sedan gets the same powertrains standard and optional, with a new dual-clutch gearbox coming to its options list late in the model year. It also adds on 18-inch wheels and tires, Bluetooth with voice commands for audio and phone, a USB port, leather seating, heated front seats, and makes the hard-drive audio system standard. A navigation system grafts on it as an option; Boston Acoustics speakers are offered separately.
There's a 200 S sedan with nearly every feature offered, but pricing has not been revealed. It bundles almost all these premium features (except the dual-clutch transmission) in as standard equipment, though the sunroof remains an option.
As for the Convertible, the base four-cylinder Touring model has a base price of $26,445 not including a $750 destination charge. It comes with a power-folding fabric roof; the usual power features; a CD player and Sirius satellite radio; and cloth interior. Options include Bluetooth with voice command capability, a USB port, and heated seats.
The Limited convertible is prices from $31,240 before destination. It has standard leather seating; a DVD disc player and a 30GB music hard drive; and 18-inch wheels. The folding-metal hardtop is an option on the Limited, as are Boston Acoustics speakers, heated seats and a navigation system.
Chrysler no longer offers a vinyl convertible roof on the 200 Convertible.
It's better equipped than in the past, but the base Chrysler 200 sedan isn't quite up the newest, toughest competitors when it comes to standard features.
