Just the Facts:
  • The Chrysler 200 has been fully redesigned for the 2015 model year.
  • It will be officially unveiled at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
  • It's expected to hit showrooms this fall.

DETROIT — The redesigned 2015 Chrysler 200 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan was caught during a photo shoot prior to its official debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. Its styling is a departure from current Chrysler sedans that use more angular lines.

The new Chrysler 200 does not appear to be significantly larger than the current model. It will continue to compete in the midsize sedan category against the Ford Fusion, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.

The front-wheel-drive sedan will likely offer a choice of either four- or six-cylinder engines. Chrysler's new nine-speed automatic is expected to be the standard transmission.

Edmunds says: Unlike the boxy 300 sedan, the new 200 is clearly aiming for a more European look in an effort to challenge its domestic and foreign competition.

    Chrome trim and shape of greenhouse and rear end treatment remind me of the previous gen Mazda 6.

    Rather than talking about how or what it resembles, I'm just going to say that this is an extreme, night and day improvement over the current 200/Sebring. Looks like they tossed everything from that car out, which is nice.

    Looks like a big improvement on the outside. I will resere judgement on the insude until there are more and better pictures. As far the shape being derivative of others. That's likely true, but really, after 100 years of cars being built, 60+ years of the basic 3 box sedan layout, how many different designs are there really going to be. I don't care if the car is a mashup of 5 or 6 others cars so long as they mashed them together in an attractive fashion.

    That is a beautiful design.

    Hard to get excited about "New and improved!" when they're updating a crap sandwich.

    What's with this trend of laying controls (switches) at an angle almost horizontal, or I should say any way other than vertical? I'd give it 6 months and it will look like a 5-year old interior when dust and dirt settle into the nooks and crannies in that panel. Are people really convinced this is a better layout, or are they just duped into being attracted to something "trendy?" Yes, I'm that OCD for looking down the road.

    Oh, speaking of what it resembles, it seems like every manufacturer is in a tight, desperate race to make their product look like everyone else's. We're stuck with vanilla or vanilla. Oh yeah, with either an automatic or automatic to really stir things up.

    It may not set the world on fire, but it's not the immediate styling embarrassment the old Sebring was. If nothing else, rental car fleets will look better....

    Dodge Dart with lipstick?

    The world's smallest touchscreen? But that aside why does CHrylser even bother making a midsize car, they are always the worst ones available.

    I like what I'm seeing here. Love the rotary dial. So far, seems like a very nice upgraded looked from the previous gen 200

  • lions208487 lions208487 Posts:

    Looks like they took a blend of the Fusion and Optima on the exterior, but I also think it made for a great exterior design, and the interior looks vastly improved. Even if they stay with the Pentastar V6 and new tiger shark turbo 4, with the new 9 spd auto, the numbers will be very competitive. Fiat/Chrysler's V6 is very solid in the 300s, paired with the 8 spd ZF trans.

    Chrysler is no longer an American company, and they stiffed the government on the bailout payback. The also needed to be bailed out by Reagan. The also make some of the world's worst cars, why anybody would buy this junky KIA ripoff is beyond me.

    Looks like a Fusion which I guess is not a bad thing.
