The 2012 Chrysler 200 is uncommon among midsize models, as it offers two body styles, including a convertible. Its quiet interior and cutting-edge technology are other features that make this model one worth considering.
The front-wheel-drive Chrysler 200 is available as a four-door sedan or a two-door convertible with either a soft or a hardtop roof. Both seat five. The sedan comes in LX, Touring, Limited and S trims. The convertible is available in Touring, Limited and S trims.
For 2012, the Chrysler 200 returns without major changes.
The Chrysler 200 offers a balanced body layout, with a bold horizontal grille and teardrop headlamps up front and wraparound tail lamps in the rear. Both body styles offer a rising beltline. The convertible comes with either a soft or hardtop roof.
Standard features include halogen headlamps, automatic lights, power and heated side mirrors, and 17-inch wheels. Among the optional features are fog lamps, a power sunroof on the sedan, 18-inch aluminum wheels and dual-exhaust tips.
The cabin is nicely laid out, with a smooth, tight-fitting dashboard. Molded plastics and metallic trim dominate, and cloth covers the seats. The convertible’s rear compartment is smaller than the sedan’s and more suitable for two people. Trunk space measures 13.3 cubic feet in the convertible with the top up, but just 7 cubic feet with the top down. In the sedan, there’s 13.6 cubic feet of cargo space. Competing sedans typically offer larger trunks.
Standard equipment includes full power accessories, a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, air conditioning and 60/40-split fold-down rear seats. Among the available features are a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, leather seats and an automatic dimming rearview mirror.
The available V6 engine delivers potent power, although it brings torque steer with it. Torque steer causes the front wheels to shift slightly to the left and to the right under full power. The standard engine isn’t especially inspiring. This model’s strong suits are its weighted steering and comfortable ride.
The standard 2.4-liter engine generates 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque. It comes with a standard four-speed automatic or a six-speed automatic in the sedan. The Chrysler 200 convertible has the six-speed transmission only.

Sedan models feature a four-speaker audio system with a CD player and auxiliary jack. Convertible models and most sedan trims have a six-speaker audio system with a 6.5-inch color display, hard drive music storage and HD and satellite radio.
Optional features include a USB port, a six-speaker Boston Acoustics audio system and a navigation system.
"The Chrysler 200 is quite pocket friendly. But be sure to keep a solid warranty as things will wear out, break and start malfunctioning as with any vehicle that ages. Overall I love the look and clean cut design of my 200 inside and out. With good maintenance I hope to have it for many years to come! " Read Less
