2015 Chrysler 200 Review

The 2015 Chrysler 200 ranks at the bottom of the midsize car class. Its comfortable ride, good safety scores, and upscale interior aren’t enough to offset its poor reliability rating and high total ownership costs.

Pros & Cons

  • Premium cabin materials
  • User-friendly infotainment system
  • Pleasant ride and handling
  • Poor reliability rating
  • Indecisive transmission

2015 Chrysler 200 Overview

Is the 2015 Chrysler 200 a Good Used Car?

The Chrysler 200 isn’t a good option if you’re shopping for a used midsize car. The 200 rates poorly for reliability, and its nine-speed transmission is unrefined. Its cabin isn’t all that spacious for a midsize sedan either. There are far better options in this segment, including the top-rated 2015 Toyota Camry and 2015 Chevrolet Malibu.

How Much Does the 2015 Chrysler 200 Cost to Own?

The 200’s five-year costs for gas, insurance, repairs, and maintenance are projected to be $25,300, or about $5,100 per year. That’s well above average for a midsize sedan.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New 200?

Chrysler discontinued the 200 sedan after the 2017 model year, so you won’t find any new models for sale. There are a few good alternatives if you’d prefer a new car in this price range, but in most cases, you’ll need to shop a size or two smaller. The subcompact 2019 Kia Rio starts at $15,390, and it has crisp cabin styling, a user-friendly infotainment system, and balanced handling. The 2019 Toyota Yaris sedan has a base price of $15,450, and it also earns praise for its pleasant driving dynamics, along with its large suite of standard tech and safety features.

Which Model Year of the Chrysler 200 Is Best?

The Chrysler 200 is part of a generation that spans the 2015 through 2017 model years. There were no major changes between these model years. None of them are particularly good buys because of their below-average reliability ratings. It’s a similar story with the previous-generation 200, which replaced the Chrysler Sebring and covers the 2011 to 2014 model years. All in all, you’re better off shopping for a different used car.

Which Used Chrysler 200 Model Is Right for Me?

The 200 sedan is available in four trim levels: LX, Limited, 200S, and 200C.

The Chrysler 200S trim adds bolstered sport seats, satellite radio, and fog lights. The 200C trim adds leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, remote start, and proximity keyless entry. Notably, both of these trims can be equipped with a four- or six-cylinder engine, and either front- or all-wheel drive. Available features include an 8.4-inch touch screen, navigation, a sunroof, ventilated front seats, and the SafetyTec suite of active safety features.

Certified Pre-Owned Chrysler 200 Warranty

The 200’s poor reliability rating may have you considering a certified pre-owned model for the added coverage and benefits it comes with. Chrysler offers one of the better certified pre-owned programs among nonluxury automakers, according to our analysis.

Chrysler offers a CPO program for vehicles that are five years old or less. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. For these vehicles, Chrysler extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. CPO vehicles also get a three-month/3,000-mile Maximum Coverage Care warranty. There are restrictions related to mileage and models, so read the Chrysler warranty page carefully.

How Safe Is the 200?

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Chrysler 200 a 2015 Top Safety Pick+, which is the organization’s highest accolade. The car received a top score of Good in all areas tested.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 200 an overall rating of five out of five stars, with five stars in the frontal and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover test.

The 200 is available with a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert. The SafetyTec package (available in 200C models only) adds parking sensors, parallel park assist, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and lane keep assist.

2015 Chrysler 200 Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2015 Chrysler 200 or 2015 Dodge Dart?

The 2015 Dodge Dart is the smaller sibling of the Chrysler 200. Both of these sedans offer pleasant handling, well-trimmed interiors, and user-friendly infotainment systems. However, both also rate poorly for reliability. Look elsewhere if you’re shopping for a used compact or midsize car. Neither of these are great options.

Which Is Better: 2015 Chrysler 200 or 2015 Honda Accord?

The 2015 Honda Accord sedan outshines the 200 in most areas. Its four- and six-cylinder engines feel more refined than the Chrysler’s engines, and its transmissions have fewer quirks than the 200’s nine-speed automatic. The Accord returns better fuel economy estimates than the 200, with up to 27 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. Its cabin feels roomier than the Accord’s as well. The Chrysler does have an edge when it comes to infotainment features, since the Honda system can be fiddly. However, the Accord is the better buy overall.

Which Is Better: 2015 Chrysler 200 or 2015 Ford Fusion?

The 2015 Ford Fusion isn’t a top pick in the midsize car class, but it is a better option than the 200. The Fusion has a better track record of reliability than the 200. Its engine and transmission options feel polished, and compared to the Chrysler, the Ford has a bit more head- and legroom in both rows, and its spry handling makes it even more fun to drive.

2015 200 Performance

How Does the 2015 Chrysler 200 Drive?

The 2015 Chrysler 200 has two engine options: a 184-horsepower four-cylinder and a 295-horsepower V6, which is available in the 200S and 200C trims. A nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard; all-wheel drive is available with the V6.

The V6 hustles the 200 up to speed briskly and remains quiet on the highway. The four-cylinder yields acceptable punch, but it sounds gravelly under hard acceleration. The nine-speed automatic transmission feels unrefined as well. It tends to upshift and downshift too frequently under normal driving conditions.

The 200’s ride and handling impress most drivers. The sedan feels well-controlled and agile when rounding turns. Its suspension soaks up bumps and dips in the road nicely. The brakes slow the car confidently, and though the 200’s steering is responsive, it feels a bit heavy.

Does the 2015 Chrysler 200 Get Good Gas Mileage?

The 200 sedan with its four-cylinder engine gets an EPA-rated 23 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, which are decent numbers by class standards. The V6’s fuel economy falls short of class rivals, at just 19/31 mpg city/highway (18/28 mpg with AWD).

2015 200 Interior

How Many People Does the 2015 200 Seat?

The 2015 Chrysler 200 is a four-door sedan with five seats. Cloth upholstery is standard; leather, heated, and ventilated seats are available.

The front seats are cushy, and they provide good support. The driving position is comfortable as well, and the 200’s cabin impresses with its quality appearance. Most surfaces are padded or soft to the touch. The rotary dial switchgear also has an upscale look and feel. That said, the rear seats feel smaller than in most midsize competitors, especially when it comes to knee- and headroom. Thick roof pillars restrict outward visibility.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2015 Chrysler 200?

The 200 sedan has two full sets of LATCH connectors for securing child car seats. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this system a Marginal rating for ease of use because some of the anchors are set deep in the seat cushions and difficult to maneuver around.

2015 Chrysler 200 Features

The 200 comes standard with a USB port, keyless entry, cruise control, and air conditioning. Available features include 5- and 8.4-inch touch screens, satellite radio, Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and navigation.

The 200’s control layout is one of its best attributes. Buttons and knobs are kept to a minimum, and they’re well-arranged on the dashboard. The available Uconnect touch screens are easy to use as well. The on-screen icons are large, and the system responds quickly to inputs.
