Expert Quotes:

The front seats proved comfortable during a couple of hours driving Highway 1, and later while navigating through heavy traffic in San Francisco.
Popular Mechanics

...The interior—which started as that shiny plastic nightmare—has a soft yet solid look and feel.
Popular Mechanics

Despite Chrysler's best efforts, some of the badness from the Sebring carried over, like the toy-feeling HVAC controls and the incredibly cheap sun visors.
Motor Trend

Not only is this interior classier, but it should wear better...
Car and Driver

Chrysler also made some waves about how much quieter the interior of the 200 is supposed to be compared to the Sebring, though we noticed plenty of road and wind noise during our stint behind the wheel.

The 2014 Chrysler 200 is a mid-sizer by the numbers, but its silhouette has a way of tricking you into thinking the cabin is somewhat small. The tall dash, wide seats, and narrower glass areas all conspire to that visual 'trick'--although once you've been inside you'll find this sedan has more usable space than a number of segment leaders that are even larger on the outside.

Taller drivers will be able to sprawl out, with comfortable front seats--although the door framing makes getting in and out a little tougher, and they lack back support. On the other hand, the back seats In back, it's a different story; the seats are easier than typical to get into, thanks to the tall roofline, and there's enough headroom and legroom for a couple of adults--although the high beltline could feel claustrophobic.

The 200 doesn't handle all that well, so you might think ride quality is soft and absorbent. But that's not altogether true, either; it bounds over pavement irregularities--especially in heavier V-6 versions when cornering. For the most part otherwise, the cabin is a quiet, civilized place, and Chrysler has wedged more sound deadening beneath the floor and by the firewall to help quell most of the road and wind noise. You still get some coarseness and droning from the four-cylinder versions, though.

Seats in the 200 Convertible feel a step flatted and less supportive--perhaps in an effort to save precious interior space in their smaller cabin. In these models back-seat space is very tight for adults, although relative to other convertibles, it's doable. Keep in mind that the snap-up windscreen between the front seats does help quiet turbulence.

Trunk space is one weakness for all versions of the 200; in the sedan, it's several cubic feet smaller than most of the mid-size rivals. As for convertibles, it's respectable bordering on roomy, with enough space for several weekend bags.

 

 

Conclusion

Seating is tight in the Convertible's back seat, but otherwise the 200 Sedan is spacious, quiet, and comfortable.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
