2011 Chrysler 200 vs. Its Competition

2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

With sedan and convertible body styles, the Chrysler 200 tackles a broad swath of the mid-size market.

The new Hyundai Sonata crushes the 200 in terms of fuel economy and standard features, but the 200's interior is nicer to sit in.

The Ford Fusion has great dynamics and a still-attractive shape to its credit, while the new VW Jetta has a spacious back seat and its vaguely upscale brand image in its hip pocket.

The 200 Convertible's real competition, at least in the rental fleet, is the Ford Mustang V-6.

Boy racers will rent the 'Stang, while folks who really need room for four adults and their luggage should opt for the Chrysler.

Quick Specs
Much improved in the most important ways--power and looks--the 2011 Chrysler 200 sedan and convertible still are stronger values than they are competitors to the best cars in the class.
The 2011 Ford Fusion comes in a few finely developed flavors; Sport, Hybrid and base are a few of the best tastes.
The 2011 Ford Mustang lives up to all those juvenile, tire-smoking pony-car expectations; at the same time, it’s an unexpectedly capable, sophisticated coupe.
The 2011 Hyundai Sonata takes some smart styling and performance risks to raise its profile.
