2012 Chrysler 200

The 2012 Chrysler 200 offers a lot for an affordable midsize car. Redesigned and introduced as a 2011 model, the Chrysler 200 comes in sedan and convertible versions, with a choice between two excellent engines, each with a sweet 6-speed manual-automatic transmission.

We found the Chrysler 200 offers good gas mileage, a smooth ride, a solid feel, a quiet cabin and, surprisingly, tight handling.

Because the Chrysler 200 was new for 2011, there are no mechanical, exterior or interior changes for 2012. However, however there is a new model.

A new 2012 Chrysler 200 S joins the LX, Touring and Limited models. Essentially a loaded Chrysler 200 Limited, the Chrysler 200 S comes standard with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. Industry watchdog Ward's Automotive named that V6 one of the “10 Best Engines” for 2012.

The V6, optional for the Chrysler 200 Touring and Limited models, standard in the 200 S, makes 283 horsepower and 270 foot-pounds of torque. Even with 110 more horsepower, it gives up little in fuel economy to the four-cylinder, with an EPA-estimated 19/29 mpg City/Highway.

The Chrysler 200 LX, Touring and Limited models come standard with the 2.4-liter World engine that Chrysler shares with Mitsubishi and Hyundai. Rated at 173 horsepower and 166 foot-pounds of torque at 4400 rpm, it's a double-overhead-cam 16-valve four-cylinder engine with variable valve timing that gives it good power at both low and high rpm. Chrysler 200's 2.4-liter four-cylinder is EPA rated at 20/31 mpg City/Highway.

As its name indicates, the Chrysler 200 falls under the Chrysler 300 in size and price. The front-wheel-drive Chrysler 200 competes with the Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Malibu, Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry, and possibly the Lexus ES and Lincoln MKZ. Midsize sedans comprise America's largest market segment for cars, with 1.7 million units sold per year. The Chrysler 200 has an old-school feel all its own that separates it from these other cars.

The Chrysler 200 replaced the much-maligned Chrysler Sebring. It uses the same platform as the Sebring, but engineers changed and strengthened so many things (chassis, engine, transmissions, suspension, brakes, body, interior) that it was almost a new car. It's impressive work, especially considering the changes were made in 12 months, and during a bankruptcy.

If you compare the Chrysler 200 to the old Sebring, you can stretch and call it sleek; it's clearly wider and lower, not to mention prettier. It's not a car that gathers second looks, but its buyers aren't people who care about second looks. They want the most metal for their money, the most affordable size and convenience, and the Chrysler 200 offers that. It's American, well-equipped and inexpensive. Popular options are bargain-priced, among them a cold weather package and media center with touchscreen and 30g music hard drive.

The cabin is one of the quietest in the segment, thanks to new sound absorption materials, as well as an acoustic glass windshield, laminated side glass usually found in higher priced vehicles, and special engine mounting for the I4 engine. The interior offers luxury, with soft seat coverings and trim, and supportive seats. The instrument panel's gray-on-gray graphics are pleasing, and its white accent lighting is wonderful at night, with nice ambient cockpit lighting.

Underway, we were quite impressed by how smooth and solid the 200 feels. It's put together well. Low road noise means a lot, and the quiet Michelin tires and new exhaust system help. Steering and ride are the same smooth and solid, even the convertible, which we drove in Seattle.

The 6-speed manual automatic transmission that comes on Touring, Limited and S models is seamless and not over-programmed. Chrysler calls it AutoStick, a name they've been using for 15 years, because they invented it, and they remain true to its blissful simplicity. A 4-speed automatic comes on the base LX model.

The 200 comes with Chrysler's longstanding 5-year 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Model Lineup

The 2012 Chrysler 200 LX ($18,995) comes with the 2.4-liter engine with a 4-speed automatic transmission. Standard equipment includes cloth upholstery, air conditioning, cruise control, acoustic laminated glass windshield and front windows, halogen headlights, heated folding sideview mirrors, illuminated keyless entry, power door locks and windows, manual driver's seat adjustment with lumbar, 130-watt sound system with CD/MP3 radio, steering wheel controls, adjustable steering wheel, ambient LED lighting, 60/40 folding rear seat, 17-inch steel wheels.

Chrysler 200 Touring ($21,370) upgrades to the 6-speed automatic transmission, automatic temperature control, eight-way power driver's seat, Electronic Vehicle Information Center and trip computer, satellite radio, six speakers, automatic headlights, premium headliner, universal garage door opener, leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather-wrapped shift knob with chrome accent, 17-inch aluminum wheels. The 3.6-liter V6 ($1,795) is optional and comes with an upgraded alternator, engine oil cooler, and dual exhaust with bright exhaust tips.

Chrysler 200 Limited ($24,070) upgrades to leather upholstery, heated front seats, upgraded interior trim, remote start, touch-screen display, compass, outside temperature reading, 430-watt sound system Media Center CD/DVD with 40-gig hard drive, iPod input, Bluetooth, U-Connect hands-free phone, fog lamps, 18-inch polished aluminum wheels. The V6 is optional ($1,795). Navigation is optional ($695) and comes with Sirius Real Time Traffic and Sirius Travel Link.

Chrysler 200 S ($26,365) comes standard with the 3.6-liter V6 engine, Boston Acoustics sound system, leather, special front seats with suede inserts, heated front seats, perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel, 18-inch polished aluminum wheels with black trim, body color mirrors and door handles, and special trim: black-barred grille, headlights with black background, unique foglight bezels, and a black-inlayed winged Chrysler badge. Navigation is optional ($695).

The Chrysler 200 convertible comes similarly equipped in Touring ($26,575), Limited ($31,570) and S ($32,070) models.

Mopar, Chrysler's performance brand, offers sports suspension, special induction and exhaust pieces and other parts to improve handling and performance.

Safety equipment on all models includes advanced multistage front driver and passenger air bags, supplemental front-seat mounted air bags, side curtain airbags, active head restraints, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, electronic stability control, and electronic traction control, and tire pressure monitor on all models but the LX.

Walkaround

The Chrysler 200 bears family resemblance to the Town and Country, the minivan sharing visual cues in the grille, headlamps, air intakes and front bumper. The Chrysler 200 front air dam is clean: low, thin, and horizontal. Its halogen headlights appear small from head-on, but flow around the front corners into the bulging fenders, creating a line that widens to the rear of the car. It makes a statement that says, We're bold not fancy. We got slab sides. So what? We like them.

If you compare the 200 to the old Sebring, you can stretch and call it sleek; it's clearly lower and wider. The main thing about the 200 is that it's big, for a midsize car, and it's American (also that it's well-equipped and inexpensive).

The rear deck lid looks chopped, with a chrome strip between LED taillamps and another chrome bar between the exhaust outlets that widens the look of the car. It bears a wing logo in brushed metal and blue, replacing the old traditional wing logo, to signify the rebirth of Chrysler.

The Chrysler 200 is not a car that gathers second looks, at least not for its beauty. But its buyers are not the type of people who care about second looks. They want the most metal for their money, the most affordable size and luxury, and the 200 offers that.

Interior Features

The Chrysler 200 cabin is nice, with seat coverings and trim that feel soft and luxurious. The seats feel supportive and should be comfortable for long periods behind the wheel.

Rear legroom measures just 36.2 inches, which is on the short side for a midsize car. Toyota Camry offers 38.3 inches of rear legroom while Ford Fusion has 37.1 inches, although the Chrysler beats the Lexus ES, at 35.9. The rear seat is split 60/40 and folds down for more cargo space, always appreciated.

The instrument panel contains the usual three round gauges, with gray-on-gray graphics that are pleasing to the eye, while its white accent lighting is wonderful at night. The three-spoke steering wheel has a thick leather-wrapped rim and padded hub with controls for the sound system and cruise setting. Armrests are soft, and door pockets roomy. Some models have two USB ports, handy for phone and laptop charging.

The cabin is one of the quietest in the segment, thanks to new sound absorption materials, as well as an acoustic glass windshield, laminated side glass usually found in higher priced vehicles, and new engine mounting for the 2.4-liter engine.

Driving Impressions

The standard powerplant for the Chrysler 200 is the 173-horsepower, 2.4-liter World engine that Chrysler shares with Mitsubishi and Hyundai. With dual variable valve timing, the power is good at both low and high rpm, and its 166 foot-pounds of torque are sufficient for the demands of its owners. The engine has proven itself reliable, over the years around the world, while delivering good gas mileage.

Fuel economy is an EPA-rated 20/31 mpg City/Highway with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 6-speed automatic transmission in a Chrysler 200 Touring sedan. That's about what we got during a week of good seat time in the Northwest.

Later, we drove a convertible with the top down on a hot summer day near Seattle, at the event called Run to the Sun by the Northwest Automotive Press Association, and it was a blast. This is the kind of car you can simply enjoy, because there are no worries. It's about what a car like this gives you, not what it is or how impressive it is.

Still, we were way impressed by how smooth and solid the 200 feels. It's put together well. Low road noise contributed a lot to this conclusion, with quiet-running Michelin tires and a retuned exhaust system.

Same with the steering and ride: smooth and solid, even the convertible. The Chrysler 200 corners really well, with little body roll.

The 6-speed manual automatic transmission is beautiful, seamless and not over-programmed. Chrysler calls it AutoStick, a name they've been using for 15 years, because they invented it. That's right, the manual automatic transmission first appeared in the 1997 Chrysler Cirrus Sebring, when it was perfectly programmed; that is, it did nothing without the driver's input. (We might add that its 2.5-liter V6 made less horsepower than today's four-cylinder, and cost more in today's dollars.) The 6-speed automatic is a good reason to step up from the base model, which comes with a 4-speed automatic.

We also got good seat time in a Chrysler 200 Limited, with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that's been around two years and continues to get rave reviews.

The V6 makes a 283 horsepower and 260 foot-pounds of torque, coupled to a 6-speed manual automatic. At highway cruising speeds, there is some wind and tire noise (the price you pay for more aggressive tires), but it's not objectionable.

Using third and fourth gears on the mountain two-lanes, it showed off its class-leading power and acceleration. According to Chrysler, the engine makes more than 90 percent of its peak torque from 1600 rpm all the way up to redline 6400, and our mountain driving supports that, as we had plenty of torque and acceleration coming off slow corners. The engine has a nice, powerful growl when it's working, and you can't hear it when it's not.

The V6 gives up very little to the I4 in fuel mileage, with a strong EPA rating of 19 city/29 highway miles per gallon.

Summary

The Chrysler 200 is an affordable midsize car that offers exceptional value. Available in sedan and convertible versions, it's smooth and quiet and feels solid. Two excellent engines coupled to the sweet 6-speed AutoStick automatic both get good gas mileage.

2012 Chrysler 200 User Reviews

This was a very affordable Hardtop Convertible when new and still is today. It is especially good if yours has to sit outside. Mine leaks a bit. Where the top meets the windshield and on the shoulder of the roof seam above the back window, It drips around the left rear quarter window and at the front part of the drivers door. A towel there when parked absorbs any water. It really doesnt leak when driving. Other than that it drives nicely and has good power. Mileage is not bad for a heavy car 19 city/29 highway. The front bucket seats are not super comfortable as you tend to sit ON them and not IN them. The back seat is wonderful but has NO leg room unless the front seats are moved quite away up. Heat and AC are good. When the temperature is 90 or above, my radio seems to go crazy with the heat and will change and save ANY station it finds or save all the push buttons to the same station. I am considering changing it out. The trunk is adequate with the top down allowing for two small suitcases and other small bags, The trunk is CAVERNOUS with the top up and rivalled my RAV4 when moving boxes as I downsized my home. It holds a LOT of cargo, golf bags, luggage or at least two people! :) There is considerable torque-steer when accelerating and the steering tends to over-steer when making a quick maneuver until you get used to driving it. The long, low nose does scrape on exit of some driveways and I have torn one under-bumper apron off on high, uneven curb stones. I also had to install a backup camera. I believe the 2011-2014 were designed by Daimler before selling the company to FCA so it has a Benz-like louvered grille and very nice lines all the way to the taillights. I cant say how many compliments I have received just from people in parking lots. It is a gorgeous car top down or up, which is unusual. Best of all you can still get the Limited or S hard top with good miles for around $12,000 and soft top Touring editions for under $10k. It is far less expensive with lower maintenance cost than a hard top VW, BMW or Benz. A great price for a roomy convertible that can comfortably accommodate four people on a short trip and two people on a long one.

Conservative Eurostyle Luxury Sport Sedan — Blind spots may be a problem for you. Car takes some getting accustomed. The wind tunnel rake of the car's profile creates a few blindspots and also the angle of headlamps' night driving view in front. I added 1/2" wheel spacers to the front hubs to correct the angle and widen the front track.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 6 cylinder. Good car. No problems. Color scheme is good. Fit and finish good. Quality good. Transmission adjusts to habits. Auto-stick functions well. Will transport a few boards up to 8 feet in length through the trunk and rear seat armrest in the middle.

Cons: Snow & ice. All wheel drive would be an improvement. Front interior room through the hips, knees and shoulder is sometimes noticeable narrow. Proper seat adjustment a must. Taller people may be cramped at capacity. Night driving may take time to adjust. Day driving may be sunny in car without window tint. Some functions of media console lack sophistication.

I Love The New Look And Performance Of The Chrysler 200. Great Updates! — This is my third Chrysler convertible. Each time, they get better and better! I love this 200 and the price is the best for a mid-size convertible. It's my dream car! Try it out and you will agree. You can't beat it on a sunny day!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nicer ride than older Sebring convertibles.  It feels like it holds the road better.  Better view for driving and higher off the ground makes for a smoother ride.  Easy up and down convertible top.

Cons: Most convertibles are black interior!  This doesn't make sense in a convertible, it makes it a hotter ride.  Trunk space is very small and trunk hood is heavy to lift.

Chrysler 200 Expert Review

MotorTrend Staff

The Chrysler 200 debuted last year as a replacement for the oft-ridiculed Sebring. While vastly improved compared to the Sebring, the 2012 200 sedan and convertible still don't quite stack up to the competition.

Last year the 200 got its most thorough update yet with the addition of the very good 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 under the hood, which produces a healthy 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, and powers the front-wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. The new V-6 not only gave the 200 performance that matched its sporty-looks (taking 6.0 seconds to hit 60 mph from a standstill in the sedan and 6.7 seconds in the convertible), but it also offers improved fuel economy over the old 3.5-liter V-6 that it replaced, achieving an EPA-estimated 19/29 mpg city/highway in both the 200 sedan and convertible.

Chrysler has made minor changes to the 200 for the 2012 model year. All Chrysler 200's now get Crystal Blue Pearl Coat, and Deep Auburn as new exterior colors, and 200 Convertible Limiteds get a new interior color scheme called Black with Pearl White.

Body styles: Sedan, convertible
Engines: 2.4L I-4, 3.6L V-6
Transmissions: 4-speed automatic, 6-speed automatic
Models: Chrysler 200 LX, Chrysler 200 Touring, Chrysler 200 Limited, Chrysler 200 S, Chrysler 200 Convertible Touring, Chrysler 200 Convertible Limited, Chrysler 200 Convertible S

Last year the 200 got Chrysler's new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6, producing 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. This year, Chrysler has given the 200 a light update that includes two new paint colors across the board, and a new interior color scheme on 200 Convertibles. The new paint colors are called Crystal Blue Pearl Coat, and Deep Auburn. The new interior color scheme is only available on the base 200 Convertible Limited. The new scheme is called Black with Pearl White.

The exterior of the svelte-looking 200 is mostly unchanged for the 2012 model year. The 2012 Chrysler 200 lineup gets two new exterior colors for 2012 that are called Crystal Blue Pearl Coat, and Deep Auburn, which is almost brown in color. The 2012 Chrysler 200 S and Chrysler 200 Convertible S are differentiated from the rest of the 2012 Chrysler 200 lineup by smoked headlamps and tail lamps, unique wheels, and a monochromatic appearance.

The 200's interior received an extensive update last year, which was noted to have a "higher-end look and feel" during our 2012 Car of the Year program, though we did admit that, "it's still not class contending." Interior changes for 2012 are strictly for the 200 Convertible Limited model. 2012 200 Convertible Limited models now have a new available interior color scheme. The newly available interior scheme on the 200 Convertible Limited is called Black with Pearl White.

Hands down the best feature of the 2012 Chrysler 200 is its 3.6-liter 283-hp V-6 and six-speed automatic transmission. The combination is good for a 6.0-second 0-60 mph time in the 200 Sedan, and 6.7-second 0-60 mph time in the 200 Convertible. The V-6 also gets surprisingly good fuel economy--rated at 19/29 mpg city/highway. While the engine and transmission combo is great, many editors found it to be "too much motor for the car" during our Car of the Year testing, noting massive multidirectional torque steer. We also noted that the car rides rough and soft at the same time, the "suspension is jarring on uneven pavement," we wrote, "yet the car rolls over on itself when cornering." The other engine option is the base 2.4-liter 173-hp I-4 that is bolted to an antiquated four-speed automatic transmission, or a six-speed automatic transmission.

The 2012 Chrysler 200 includes many safety features you'd expect to find in a modern midsize sedan and convertible. The 2012 200 comes standard with traction control, electronic stability control, tire pressure monitoring system and an anti-lock braking system. The 200 also comes standard with six airbags; two front, and four side-air curtain airbags for both front and rear passengers. The 200 also comes standard with a theft-deterrent system. Chrysler is quick to point out that every single available safety feature is standard equipment on the 2012 200 sedan and convertible.

200 LX: 21 mpg city/30 mpg highway
200 Touring: 20 mpg city/31 mpg highway
200 Limited: 19 mpg city/29 mpg highway
200 S: 19 mpg city/29 mpg highway
200 Convertible Touring: 18 mpg city/29 mpg highway
200 Convertible Limited: 19 mpg city/29 mpg highway
200 Convertible S: 19 mpg city/29 mpg highway

  • Pentastar V-6 power and fuel economy
  • Street presence of 200 S
  • Avoid the I-4 with the 4A.

Excellent Amercan value

needyg2012-09-25 19:23:05

My 2012 200 Limited is an excellent car. Nice looking, comfortable, loaded with features and great quality. The Pentastar engine can't be beat. I've owned a Honda Accord and found it to be an excellent car. I believe the 200 is equal or better, especially the interior. Where the Honda has a lot of hard plastics, the 200 has soft touch surfaces. The 200 is also quieter and offers a smoother ride on most surfaces. The 200 has a certain style or flair that the Honda lacks. Chrysler is really stepping up. I look forward to its future products as well. Yes, I'd buy it again.



Great value and style for a reasonable price

I have a 2012 cherry red Chrysler 200 Limited with nearly 6,000 miles on it. The car has a smooth, quiet ride and is very comfortable. Standard equipment includes leather, AC with temp control, power everything, ABS, LED lighting, cruise, an incredible radio with satellite, navigation, bluetooth, phone and more. It even notifies you about severe weather and shows weather radar automatically....amazing. The Pentastar V6 is smooth, powerful and quiet. I typically get 23 mpg in the city and got 29 on the highway on a recent trip. Not bad for a V6 with dual exhausts. Lots of safety equipment including anti whiplash headrests, beams in the doors, front, side and seat mounted air bags. My sister has a Lexus ES and she thinks my Chrysler is an amazing bargain with almost all the accessories that her Lexus has for thousands less. The cherry red paint is almost identical to the Lexus. Actually, I think the 200 rides as nice or better. Chrysler has made great strides in quality and it really shows in this car. I've been contacted several times to see if I'm satisfied and the dealer provided me with breakfast when I took the car in for a FREE oil change. Nice touch. I urge you to take a look at this car and compare. Style, price, value, quality and lots of features plus a dose of style. Nice job, Chrysler. I'm proud to buy American again.


Excellent Mid-size Choice

Picked up my 2012 Chrysler 200 S a week ago and had the opportunity to ******* a bit today. After test driving similar choices from Honda, Toyota, Hundai, Chevy, and Ford, I believe this is one of the best mid-size cars on the market today. The standard equipment on the "S" version of the 200 far surpasses any other mid-size on the market. In addition, the power from the Pentastar 3.6 V-6 is outstanding. I have read some reviews that try to compare this car to the old Sebring. It is not a Sebring. I took my S out on highway 285 southwest of Denver this afternoon to check its power handling. (If you haven't driven this road, you had better have a top notch car or you'll have to limit your speed to the posted 45 MPH or less.) My "S" went through the canyon at 60-65 MPH with minimum roll and sway. The Goodyear Eagles (225/50R18's) stuck to the road like glue. After owning three Camaro's and driving them aggressively on this road, I can honestly say this car handled better than my last two Camaro's. In addition, the outstanding Boston Acoustics stereo with 40 GB HDD, blue tooth, satellite, and CD/DVD made me think I wasn't even pushing the car. The ride is very quiet and enjoyable. Driver position is very good. I would like to see some more foot room in the driver's side, but it wasn't uncomfortable by any means. Overal MPG during the first week was 25.5. This was about 50% highway and 50% city driving. I highly recommend this car.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.

He reached for her, simultaneously drilling my crotch with his gaze. Twirling the box in his hand, he looked again under the hem of my dress and said it was that box. While I got up and went down to the floor, he continued to eagerly stare at me while greedily licking his lips. When we began to drink tea, he offered me brandy to warm, as he put it, but I refused, as I could not stand alcohol.

Then, when I went to the second act of the play, already at the door, Uncle Vitya somehow joked playfully, he.
