...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.
The 2014 Chrysler 200 has become a better value over time, and it offers a set of features that's competitive but certainly not class-leading.The base 2014 Chrysler 200 LX includes a four-cylinder engine and four-speed automatic, but otherwise you end up with a very well-equipped car. Air conditioning, power windows/locks/mirrors, cruise control, a telescoping/tilting steering wheel with audio controls, and an AM/FM/CD player are all included, but surprisingly Bluetooth is an option here. It's now standard on every other mid-size sedan.
With a step up to the Touring model, you add 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 V-6 is optional on any of these models.
The 2014 Chrysler 200 Convertible has somewhat different equipment; at its base four-cylinder Touring level, it comes with a power-folding fabric roof; the usual power features; a CD player and Sirius satellite radio; and cloth interior. The 200 Limited Convertible includes standard leather seating; a DVD disc player and a 30GB music hard drive; plus 18-inch wheels. Bluetooth with voice command capability, a USB port, and heated seats are among the options.
The Limited model stands at the top of the sedan lineup, and it can be ordered with either powertrain. Here, you get 18-inch wheels and tires, Bluetooth with voice commands for audio and phone, a USB port, leather seating, and heated front seats. A navigation system with live traffic and voice commands is optional, as is a Boston Acoustics premium sound system, while hard-drive storage for audio comes standard. Remote start and heated front seats are available as part of a cold weather group.Chrysler last year expended the appeal of the sporty 'S' model by offering it as a package rather than a separate trim/model. Add the S package, and you get 18-inch polished painted wheels, a black finish grille, fog lamp bezels, projector fog lamps, black headlamps, and black badging.
Base LX models of the 2014 Chrysler 200 still lack Bluetooth.
