2017 Chrysler 200 Review
The 2017 Chrysler 200 is unique among all lot of sedans that are available in the market for 2017. It has some resemblance with the Chevrolet Malibu and Ford Fusion but the foundation of the Chrysler 200 gives it a European touch and handling characteristics. This vehicle is deemed as being more flexible than a lot of available family sedans. Although, there is no hybrid model in the line-up, the available front and all-wheel drivetrains with powerful V6 engine make it a high-performance sedan. Let’s take a closer look at this stylish vehicle.
The 2017 Chrysler 200 possesses a coupe-like body profile. The smooth lines extend all the way from the front to the back of the car. In the front, the Chrysler logo seems to be floating in the front grille. It is bounded by the projector beam headlights. The new design of the vehicle depicts the interesting direction the company has taken with regards to future designs.
The 2017 Chrysler 200 has got one of the most exciting and finest interiors among the midsize sedan category. The interior trims and accents look like real wood and give the interior a more refined and premium feel. In spite of all its luxury and premium features, the rear seat room and head room is quite small. This is a big disadvantage for people with above average height and physique. Despite the size, the seats are made of comfortable material and offer some great lumbar support. The front seat space is far larger than the rear seat room, which makes for comfortable driving. The trunk has ample space. It measures 16 cubic feet.
