2017 Chrysler 200 Overview

Is the 2017 Chrysler 200 a Good Used Car?

The 2017 Chrysler 200 is a decent midsize car. It hits the marks when it comes to interior opulence, safety tech, and cargo space, but so do other high-ranked vehicles like the Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima. On the downside, it has a lackluster base engine, a cramped backseat, and one of the lowest predicted reliability ratings in the class.

How Much Does the 2017 Chrysler 200 Cost to Own?

The 2017 Chrysler 200's estimated five-year costs for fuel, insurance, maintenance, and repairs are projected to be about $24,690 -- or $4,940 per year. By comparison, five-year costs for the 2017 Ford Fusion ($23,380), 2017 Honda Accord ($23,970), and the 2017 Toyota Camry ($23,820) are lower.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New 200?

The Chrysler 200 was discontinued after the 2017 model year, so a 2018 model is unavailable.

If you're in the market for a new 2018 midsize sedan, consider the 2018 Kia Optima. Like the 200, it features a roomy cabin and good fuel economy. Plus, it comes with a longer list of standard safety and technology features. But consider the 2018 Ford Focus if you're more concerned with performance. The Focus is significantly smaller than the 200, but it has sprightly handling and a comfortable ride.

2017 Chrysler 200 Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2017 Chrysler 200 or 2017 Ford Fusion?

Like the 200, the Ford Fusion features a roomy, upscale cabin and plenty of trunk space. Both cars also have underpowered base engines, but the Fusion has better steering feedback, stronger brakes, and nimbler handling. Moreover, the Fusion has a slightly higher predicted reliability rating than the 200. The Ford is a better option, especially since it costs about the same.

Which Is Better: 2017 Chrysler 200 or 2017 Honda Accord?

The 2017 Honda Accord is a good midsize car because it has a comfortable ride, excellent gas mileage, roomy seats, and many available safety features. That said, the Accord's awkwardly shaped trunk hurts its cargo functionality. It also has an average list price that is $5,600 higher than the 200's. Nonetheless, the Accord is a superior choice. 

Which Is Better: 2017 Chrysler 200 or 2017 Toyota Camry?

The 2017 Toyota Camry is one of the best cars you can buy in the midsize car class. It has an excellent predicted reliability rating, a comfortable ride, a spacious back seat, and a good amount of power from its base engine. Although the 200 has more trunk space and an easier-to-use infotainment system than the Camry, the Toyota is the winner.

2017 200 Performance

How Does the 2017 Chrysler 200 Drive?

A 184-horsepower four-cylinder engine powers the 2017 Chrysler 200. While the base engine has enough power for the daily commute, it suffers from lackluster acceleration on the highway. It's comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission that occasionally hunts for gears when downshifting under hard acceleration.

The available 295-horsepower V6 engine is a better choice. Although it's paired with the mediocre nine-speed automatic, its excellent power output somewhat makes up for that shortcoming. Front-wheel drive is standard, but some models feature all-wheel drive.

Does the 2017 Chrysler 200 Get Good Gas Mileage?

The 2017 Chrysler 200 delivers 23 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, which is a respectable rating in the class. With the available V6, fuel economy drops to 19/31 mpg city/highway. The Honda Accord (26/34 mpg) and Toyota Camry (24/33 mpg) have similar mileage estimates.

2017 200 Interior

How Many People Does the 2017 200 Seat?

The 2017 Chrysler 200 seats five. Its high-quality interior has a decent amount of room up front, but the back row is considerably smaller than what class rivals offer. Cloth seats come standard; leather upholstery, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seats, and heated and ventilated front seats are available. Some models even come with chrome or wood accents.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2017 Chrysler 200?

There are two full sets of LATCH car-seat connectors and an upper tether in the middle seat of the 2017 Chrysler 200. When they are not in use, the middle seat can also borrow lower anchors from the adjoining seats. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 200 the second-lowest rating of Marginal for ease of use. Some lower anchors are too deep in the seat, and it's difficult to maneuver around them.

2017 Chrysler 200 Features

The 200 comes standard with a USB port, a four-speaker audio system, and push-button start. Available features include a six-speaker or nine-speaker audio system, navigation, satellite radio, HD Radio, a 5-inch or 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system, and Bluetooth.
