The New Chrysler 200 Gets Rave Reviews

2015 Chrysler 200At Bob Mariano, we’re excited to offer the completely redesigned 2015 Chrysler 200, which proudly sports a total makeover that has left reviewers (and customers) with their jaws on the floors.

The most noticeable changes to the new Chrysler 200 involve this sedan’s bold new look. The new design prioritizes a sleek outer appearance and luxury-on-a-budget look for the interior, and reviewers have noticed! “Its stunning good looks, futuristic interior and strong performance characteristics are capable of igniting passion,” raves Deb Semmler of the South Bend Tribune.

Buyers will also be getting a lot of bang for their buck, with great standard features that help those buying on a budget feel like they’re living in the lap of luxury.  “The “why buy” list of features for the all-new 200 goes beyond its sleek bodywork and high-quality interior materials,” says Forbes’ Karl Brauer. “Standard features on the 200 LX, like push-button start, keyless entry and a 9-speed transmission with electronic rotary shifter, feel like high value in a $22,695 vehicle.”

Another new feature of the Chrysler 200 is a nine-speed automatic transmission, which allows for an impressive max of 36 highway mpg. The car is surprisingly powerful, though, and Terry Box of the Dallas News notes that “[w]ith the optional 295-horsepower Pentastar V-6 — the Chrysler Group’s 3.6-liter workhorse — the front-wheel-drive 200 is the most powerful car in the midsize segment.”

Reviewers also praised the responsive and intelligent optional all-wheel drive, a feature not offered on many similar sedans. “The system is clever and maximizes fuel economy by completely disconnecting rear-wheel-drive when it’s not needed,” explains Andre Smirnov of TFLCar.

If you’d like to experience the 2015 Chrysler 200 for yourself (and really, who wouldn’t?), head on down to our New Hampshire Chrysler dealership to take the new car for a test-drive and see what all the fuss is about!
