Consumer Reports had a good look around the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 whilst it was being displayed at the manufacturer’s Detroit motor show stand. It is a car that really had to be much better than its predecessor in every way, as it enters a class full of talented mid-sized rivals.
The new design is a welcome change from the old car that had awkward proportions with overhangs that were far too long to be pretty. Inside it also looks like a lot of progress has been made, and despite being similar to the smaller Dodge Dart, its extra space will surely be pleasing. However, that room is not class leading according to the video.
Engines-wise, the range is rather limited, with the 2.4-liter and 3.6-liter variants being the only choices. One plus point is that you can get the larger unit with all-wheel drive.
Check out CR's quick video take of the car along with a set of photos from the show right after the virtual jump.
