, Automotive Editor -
For the value-minded and style-conscious consumer, the 200 is worth a look.

Introduction

The Chrysler 200 is an often-overlooked family sedan that offers a powerful V6 and lots of features for a relatively reasonable price. It may not be the newest or flashiest car there, but it represents good value in a crowded segment that's also full of lookalike models. The 200 lineup also offers the unusual option of a convertible.

In base trim, the 200 LX comes with a 2.4-liter 173-horsepower four-cylinder engine that's mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Standard features include air conditioning, power windows, locks with remote keyless entry, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, an outside temperature gauge, a four-speaker audio system with auxiliary input, and a height-adjustable driver's seat.

The uplevel Touring model adds a six-speed automatic transmission, 17-inch alloy wheels, a power driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic headlamps and climate control, and a satellite radio.

The plush Limited gets a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine -- optional in the Touring -- with 283 horsepower, leather seats, an uplevel audio system, a touchscreen radio and fog lights.

The 200 S convertible -- available with four- or six-cylinder engines -- includes 18-inch alloy wheels, leather and suede upholstery, and blacked-out exterior trim and headlamp bezels.

The 200 will appeal to consumers who value power and styling above having the latest design or most feature-laden vehicle. While it's not the strongest contender in the marketplace, the 200 does possess a certain quality of its own, and with a price that's more than competitive.
