The 2015 Chrysler 200 has gotten a major redesign with improved styling inside and out along with a 9-speed automatic transmission that comes standard. You’ll find a 9-speed on some SUVs but this is the first time one has been used on a sedan. It’s available with either a 4-cylinder or 6-cylinder engine, and a choice of front wheel drive or all wheel drive.
This is a classic premium sedan and Chrysler has given it subdued styling rather than an aggressive sporty look. It’s not about attracting attention but about getting where you’re going in a smooth and even elegant vehicle. Interior styling gets a dose of elegance with real wood and premium materials throughout and there’s a huge trunk for carrying plenty of luggage on that long, lounging road trip.
You can get into one at entry-level price in the low $20,000 range or take it all the way up to nearly $40,000 for plenty of luxury for less than the flashier brands.
The tested model came in at $34,415 with a 6-cylinder Pentastar putting out 295 horsepower with 262 lb-ft of torque.

Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. Nicole also writes for NerdApproved and GeekMom.
