...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.
With this model's rehabilitation a couple of years ago, and the name change to Chrysler 200, it's became better equipped and a stronger value. with more safety and entertainment features. Yet the base model still doesn't include Bluetooth hands-free calling connectivity.
In the base 2013 Chrysler 200 LX sedan, you have to deal with the four-cylinder engine and four-speed automatic but otherwise you end up with a very well-equipped car. This model includes air conditioning, power windows/locks/mirrors, cruise control, telescoping/tilting steering wheel with audio controls, an AM/FM/CD player. Bluetooth is an option here, while it's standard on somewhat more expensive Hyundai Sonata--and this 200 doesn't offer a USB port or control iPods, though it does come with an auxiliary audio jack.
Touring sedans 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. On these models, the V-6 is optional.
At the top of the lineup is the Limited sedan, which can be ordered with either powertrain and gets 18-inch wheels and tires, Bluetooth with voice commands for audio and phone, a USB port, leather seating, and heated front seats. The hard-drive audio system also comes standard. A navigation system with live traffic and voice commands is optional, as is a Boston Acoustics premium sound system. There's also a cold-weather group that pairs heated front seats and remote start.For 2013, Chrysler allows more buyers to get the special look of the 200S by offering it as an 'S' package rather than as a separate model. Three different S packages dress up the LX, Touring, and Limited models to include 18-inch polished painted wheels, a black finish grille, fog lamp bezels, projector fog lamps, black headlamps, and a black Chrysler badge.
Equipment for the 2013 Chrysler 200 Convertible is a bit different. The base four-cylinder Touring model 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 200 Limited Convertible includes standard leather seating; a DVD disc player and a 30GB music hard drive; plus 18-inch wheels.
Touring and Limited models of the 2013 Chrysler 200 are strong values, but base models still lack Bluetooth.
