2016 Chrysler 200 Overview

Is the 2016 Chrysler 200 a Good Used Car?

The Chrysler 200 offers very good safety ratings, an easy-to-use infotainment system, and plenty of trunk space. However, its poor reliability rating is just one of many reasons the 200 is difficult to recommend. Other midsize sedans offer roomier interiors, better fuel economy, stronger base engines, and more standard features in their lower trims.

How Much Does the 2016 Chrysler 200 Cost to Own?

Estimated five-year costs for gas, insurance, maintenance, and repairs for the 2016 Chrysler 200 are about $23,900. That’s a lot more than most competitive 2016 midsize sedans will cost. The 2016 Kia Optima will cost you an estimated $21,900 over five years, the 2016 Honda Accord will cost around $23,100, and the 2016 Hyundai Sonata will cost roughly $21,300.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New 200?

You can’t buy a new Chrysler 200. Production stopped after the 2017 model year.

If you’d like a new car for about the same price as a used 200, there aren’t a lot of options. In fact, you’d have to step all the way down to the subcompact class to find something. The 2018 Honda Fit starts at $16,190 and is one of the few subcompact cars that offers more storage space than the 200. It’s also one of the highest rated cars in the class.

Which Model Year of the Chrysler 200 Is Best?

The 2016 Chrysler 200 is part of a generation that includes the 2015 and 2017 model years. Aside from reshuffling some trims and features, these three vehicles are basically identical. Save some money and buy the 2015 model. Older 2013 and 2014 models are best avoided. They earn low scores (7.3 and 7.4, respectively) and have none of the benefits of the 2015 redesign.

Which Used Chrysler 200 Model Is Right for Me?

The 2016 Chrysler 200 comes in four trims: LX, Limited, 200S, and 200C. For most shoppers, the 200S will offer the best value. It comes with sport seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, satellite radio, a sport suspension, and exterior style enhancements. For the best performance, look for models with the available V6 engine. A notable package is the Premium Group. It adds a household power outlet and steps up the luxury with leather upholstery and interior wood and bronze accents.

Certified Pre-Owned Chrysler 200 Warranty

Because the 2016 Chrysler 200 has such a low reliability score, purchasing a certified pre-owned model will provide you with some peace of mind. For its certified pre-owned 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/Dodge/Jeep/Ram warranty page carefully. The model's original sale date determines whether it is eligible for the CPO program.

Chrysler’s CPO program is decent, but according to our analysis, it’s not as robust as those offered by Mazda, Honda, Toyota, or Chevrolet.

2016 Chrysler 200 Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2016 Chrysler 200 or 2016 Honda Accord?

The 2016 Honda Accord is a much better car than the 200. It has sharper handling and a more comfortable ride. The Accord's base engine feels more potent than the 200’s, and the Honda has a spacious interior.

Which Is Better: 2016 Chrysler 200 or 2016 Ford Fusion?

The 2016 Ford Fusion and Chrysler 200 possess sporty handling, upscale cabins, and spacious 16-cubic-foot trunks. They also share some of the same troubles, including subpar fuel economy and a lackluster base engine. The big difference between these two is reliability; the Fusion’s score is much higher. In the end, the Fusion is the better choice.

Which Is Better: 2016 Chrysler 200 or 2016 Chrysler 300?

Like its smaller sibling, the 2016 Chrysler 300 offers a well-made cabin with useful features, such as the Uconnect infotainment system and available advanced safety features. However, the Chrysler 300 boasts a powerful engine lineup, and its base engine produces ample power. It also offers plenty of rear-seat room for passengers. The 300 is the superior choice.

2016 200 Performance

How Does the 2016 Chrysler 200 Drive?

The Chrysler 200 is equipped with a 184-horsepower four-cylinder engine as standard, but a 295-horsepower V6 is available. A nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. All-wheel drive is available.

The Chrysler 200's base engine lacks refinement and is noisy under hard acceleration. The available V6 engine offers potent acceleration that makes the 200 fun to drive. The nine-speed automatic transmission can sometimes be slow to downshift with the base engine, but it shifts smoothly when matched with the V6.

Does the 2016 Chrysler 200 Get Good Gas Mileage?

The EPA estimates that the base 200 gets 23 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, which is on the low end for a midsize car. The V6 model gets 19/31 mpg city/highway, which is a bit lower than the fuel economy estimates of the 200’s V6-powered competitors. The all-wheel-drive 200 is rated at 18/28 mpg.

2016 200 Interior

How Many People Does the 2016 200 Seat?

The Chrysler 200 seats five and comes standard with cloth upholstery. Available features include leather upholstery and front seats that are heated, ventilated, and power-adjustable. The 200's front seats are comfortable and supportive, but the rear seats have poor legroom and headroom compared with some competitors.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2016 Chrysler 200?

The Chrysler 200 has complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors in the outboard rear seats, as well as a middle-seat tether anchor. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the Focus’ LATCH system as Marginal, its second-lowest score. The IIHS said the lower anchors are buried too deep in the seats, and the anchors’ angles make it difficult to secure the child seat latches.

2016 Chrysler 200 Features

Standard equipment in the 2016 Chrysler 200 includes a four-speaker stereo, a USB input, and Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system. Available features include dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start, a 115-volt power outlet, a nine-speaker audio system, satellite radio, Bluetooth, HD Radio, Wi-Fi hot spot capability, an upgraded Uconnect system with a 5-inch touch screen, and a top-of-the-line Uconnect system with navigation and an 8.4-inch touch screen. The user-friendly Uconnect infotainment system is quick to respond to inputs and is one of the best in the class.
