I own a 2012 Touring model with the 3.6 Pentastar, 430n touchscreen radio and sunroof. I looked at and researched mid-sized cars for 3 months before I decided on the 200. I liked the exterior looks of the malibu, but the interior seemed dated and the 2.4l engine was too underpowered for my taste. I finally decided on the 200 for two reasons, the 3.6l Pentastar is amazing 29mpg with 283HP. It is very quiet and docile at low throttle, but give it some gas and it feels like a rockestship! This engine is an absolute joy. The second reason was price, I walked out of the dealership at $20200.00 after all rebates and negotiations.
3.6l Pentastar engine, super comfortable and quiet. Touchscreen radio with hard-drive. Sunroof. LED exterioir and interior lighting.
Figuring out how to dim the radio took me awhile to figure out. Trunk is on the small side.
