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.
