Intro: Chrysler has reinvented its entry-level sedan with the 2011 Chrysler 200. Previously badged the Sebring, the bold redesign was so significant that Chrysler re-christened this 5-passenger sedan the 200.
Features: The swept-back exterior theme continues in the cabin, where a flowing interior design is home to controls for the media center with MP3 input, available heated leather seats, and available touch screen navigation system.
Performance: Base power for the 200 comes from a 2.4-liter inline-4, sending 173 horsepower to the front wheels through a 4-speed automatic on the base LX trim, and a 6-speed automatic on Touring and Limited models. Those models are also available with a 3.6-liter V6, sending 283 horsepower through a 6-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels.
Fuel Economy: Here are the highest and lowest EPA estimates for fuel economy:
Pricing: Base MSRP for the 2011 Chrysler 200 is $19,245. A Limited trim starts at $23,745.
Warranty: The 200 is backed by a 5-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
Summary: With sharp exterior lines and a well-crafted interior, the all-new 2011 Chrysler 200 is a fresh take on the entry-level premium sedan.
