2013 Chrysler 200 Overview
For 2013 there may be fewer trims to choose from for the Chrysler 200, but in this case, less is more. There's talk that the 2013 Chrysler 200 will be a contender in the midsize car segment, because its high level of standard equipment makes it a better value than in the past. It will be available in Limited, LX and Touring versions, with Limited, S and Touring Convertibles as well. Shortening the list of trims and increasing standard equipment makes the 2013 Chrysler 200 an affordable choice for a well-appointed midsize sedan. It provides enough power to appeal to those looking for something both sporty and functional and the size and safety to appeal those looking for a family car as well.
For 2013 the Chrysler 200 will pack one of two engines, depending on which trim you choose. The LX, Touring and Touring Convertible feature a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder that produces 173 hp. Fuel economy for the 2.4-liter is reasonable at an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city/31 highway. The Limited, Limited Convertible and S Convertible feature a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that produces 283 hp. It offers reasonable fuel economy as well, with an EPA-estimated 18/29. The 3.6-liter pairs with a 4-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed automatic with manual shift capability. The manual shift capability adds a sportier feel to the V6 200, but not necessarily any changes in fuel economy.
As far as handling goes, the 2013 200 still has a body roll that results in somewhat sloppy steering feel. When the 200 first replaced the Sebring, handling and driving capability seemed to improve, but for 2013, the 200 seems to have returned to the Sebring's driving feel. The setup of the springs needs to be stiffer to reduce its body roll. The Touring and LX feature 17-inch steel or aluminum alloy wheels, and the S and Limited feature 18-inch alloy wheels. Stability and traction control are standard on all 200s.
There is also an increase of standard equipment available for all Chrysler 200 trims. Inside the 200 LX and Touring, you'll find an 8-way power driver’s seat, satellite radio, garage door opener and automatic climate control. Upgrade to the Limited and in addition to the features of the Touring, you can enjoy heated front seats, leather upholstery and a multimedia center with connections for Bluetooth, cell phone and a DVD player. The S trim adds an upgraded audio system in addition to all the features of the lower trim levels.
Safety features have also been updated for the 2013 200, as it features stability and traction control and ABS brakes with brake assist. Inside you will find active front head restraints and 6 airbags located throughout the vehicle. Other safety features include a tire pressure monitoring system and a security system.
