Price as Tested $27,180: 2.4-L 184-hp MultiAir I4, 9-speed automatic, Convenience Group, Comfort Group, Uconnect

Crisp, sleek styling is just modern enough without standing out in the parking lot, which seems to be a selling point these days. Tasteful interior, intuitive controls. Cruises nicely at highway speed, and the 9-speed gearbox gives it long legs and good fuel economy for what feels like a larger car. The car is always in the right gear. It accelerates responsively for decisive passing. The Uconnect Bluetooth system works well. Heated seats and backup camera are worthwhile modern accessories that I never take for granted.


Feels heavier than it should. Vague steering offers no thrills but makes for an easy, smooth ride on the highway. Lurchy in stop-and-go traffic and navigating neighborhoods at low speed.


Shoppers interested in a Honda Accord will find little here to dissuade them, and yet, for the typical American commuter and errand-runner, our test car still offers a lot for its sub-$30k price point. The Chrysler 200 is not a sports car or a big luxury tourer, but it doesn’t claim to be. Buyers looking for a mid-sized American sedan should give the 200 a chance.
