2017 Chrysler 200 Walk Around


Sweeping, stylish sheetmetal hides the Chrysler 200’s compact car roots, and gives it sophistication. It flows effortlessly over the long arched roofline. The roofline disguises the reality that it’s built on the wheelbase of a compact car, but the inboard wheels give it away. Still, it’s a nice counterpoint to the taut, sportier look of the Dart. We like the down turned shoulders dropping to the short rear deck, with standard LED taillamps. LED headlamps and running lights are optional.

The attractive body doesn’t have a bad angle. But it has a lot of hints: Saab in the refined front end, Audi A7 and Ford Fusion in the roofline, elegant details from the Genesis G80 and Lexus It looks expensive.

Interior

The cabin is a showpiece. The interior is warm and classy, one of the best in the midsize class. It’s superbly detailed, refined but with a fantastic, tech-centric look. The dash is covered with premium material, while the fit and finish is top notch. There’s an embossed Detroit skyline under the console.

Some design touches are functional and distinctive, like the pass-through storage area in the center console, and the space-saving rotary shift knob, sliding cupholders, big dials for audio and fan, and lots of cubby holes.

The dash is split vertically, allowing a carved-out space below, and it’s adorned in some unusual and attractive colors and grains, including an open-pore wood on the 200C that’s simple and beautiful. The gauges and center display float together in a sleekly curved cutout from the soft-touch dash.

There’s plenty of room in the front seats, while optional sport seats have an ample range of adjustment and good bolsters for long-distance support. Not so roomy in the back seats, which are difficult to climb into because of the door cutouts into the swoopy roofline. There’s less room in the rear seat than in the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, or Ford Fusion. On the upside, there’s a flip-down armrest with storage, and 60/40 seat with a pass-through to the large 16-cubic-foot trunk.
