2013 Chrysler 200 vs. Its Competition

2013 Chrysler 200 Sedan
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The 2013 Chrysler 200 is an affordable model that's competitive in terms of features for the money but simply not up to snuff in many other ways.

Fuel economy is important for mid-size sedan shoppers, and in that respect nearly all the other models crush the 200.

And while the 200's interior is pleasantly styled and rather quiet, it looks outdated compared to much of the rest of this class--especially the swoopy Hyundai Sonata and the edgy new Ford Fusion.

The Volkswagen Jetta has crept up in size, and it now offers a a spacious back seat along with an entry price that's in the vicinity of the 200.

Toyota improved comfort, safety, and features in its Camry this past year, and although it has a conservative look like the 200, the Camry has a very roomy interior and comes out on top in gas mileage.

As for the 2013 Chrysler 200 Convertible, it mainly stands as a fleet vehicle for rental agencies in Sun Belt lots, alongside V-6 Ford Mustang drop-tops.

Compared to the Mustang, it has better ride comfort and more trunk space, although the Mustang is much, much more fun to drive.

Quick Specs
7.4
The 2013 Chrysler 200 Sedan and Convertible models are quite comfortable, and even though they offer a good list of features for the money, it's hard to forgive their outdated look and lack of refinement.
9.0
The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid makes an extraordinary leap forward in fuel economy--but also, in its appealing looks and handling.
8.4
Don't let the brash sound and classic looks fool you; the Ford Mustang offers some of the best performance-car bang for the buck--delivered with surprising sophistication.
8.6
With a standout design; perky performance; great gas mileage; and exceptional value for the money, the 2013 Hyundai Sonata is one of the best buys among mid-size sedans.
7.6
The 2013 Toyota Camry is no standout for design, but it's more than ever the sensible pick for those who value comfort, value, and frugality above all else.
