Fuel economy was boosted slightly last year for the Chrysler 200, but you might not have noticed the difference; that's because so many mid-size sedans do better.
At either 30 or 31 mpg on the highway with the four-cylinder engine, the base engine in the 200 Sedan gets lower mileage than some competing V-6 sedans. And at 19 mpg city, 29 highway, the new V-6 isn't as bad, but it's still near the back of the pack for a front-wheel-drive sedan.
We've managed to do a bit better in real-world driving, though, especially with the V-6. Over about 300 miles of mostly gentle highway driving in a four-cylinder Limited sedan with the six-speed automatic, we saw about 27 mpg, while in a V-6 over about 250 miles of mixed driving--including some city congestion--we averaged 24 mpg.
