While the Chrysler 200 and its smaller counterpart the Dodge Dart are going out of production soon, Chrysler pulls of a last hurrah for the 2016 Chrysler 200 V6 with the car priced really low and a lot of incentives. The 200 wasn’t a really impressive car but with the sort of bargain sale Chrysler’s doing, it could be a nice deal to get a car at such a decent price.
The 2016 Chrysler 200 V6 is Bland on the Outside, Pretty Decent on the Inside, and Surprisingly Fast
The 2016 Chrysler 200 V6 mostly resembles the Fusion in profile, but with less sharply creased character lines. The 200’s bland exterior is thanks to the designers not giving the vehicle enough character, it looks so easily forgettable perhaps its most noticeable feature is that it won’t be noticed amidst the market full of sleek-looking sporty sedans. Under the hood is 3.6-Liter V6 that puts out 295hp and 262lb-ft of torque. Not bad for a car of this class.
The interior of the 2016 200 V6 features a linen and black interior, like most GM vehicles, the interior is a mix of parts from the GM parts bin, some bits have good quality in them, others just ruin the experience by making you think that the designers were trolling you just to piss you off. The 200 has a shorter wheelbase than the Ford Fusion which is reflected in the cabin where the rear seats are mounted too low to make for headroom because of the car’s sloping roofline.Teens and adults are apt to complain that their knees are higher than their elbows. Front-seat space, by contrast, feels large, and the seats are comfortable, with decent lumbar support and bottom cushions long enough for tall drivers. And the 16-cubic-foot trunk space matches that of the segment leaders.
At a 20 percent lower cost than most in its segment, the 2016 Chrysler 200 V6 can outperform them in terms of engine performance. The V6 on the 200 can simply outshine anything in its price point. 0-60 time is at a quick 5.7 seconds better than anything else even on higher priced sedans. However it only does it on a straight line; the chassis isn’t cut out for more engaging drives but it’s still competent, just don’t expect much of a sporty drive in it; it’s still a front wheel drive family car.
