First Drive of the 2015 Chrysler 200C: Performance Technology Brings Chrysler to the Midsized Forefront

When the 2015 Chrysler 200C was introduced earlier this year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, it was clear to pretty much everyone that this new midsized sedan looked the part of a major contender in the industry’s most popular segment but would the new 200 drive as great as it looks?

Last week I had the pleasure of spending a few hours behind the wheel of a 2015 Chrysler 200C V6 AWD to see if this new car could compete with some of the biggest names in the American auto industry. Many of the industry’s top selling models such as the Toyota Camry, the Ford Fusion and the Honda Accord comprise the midsized sedan segment and in past year, the Chrysler Group has struggled to build a car that could really compete with those big names. The Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Avenger did an admirable job of giving Chrysler fans something solid in the midsized segment, but sales numbers of the Toyota and Ford models dwarfed the two midsized Chrysler sedans. The company’s midsized program took a big step forward when the Chrysler Sebring became the Chrysler 200, but that car was really just a nicer version of the Sebring.

I bought one, 200C AWD, a few weeks ago and I love it. Its fun, quick, comfortable and always available to play some more. Mileage vs Power is amazing - No more poor gas mileage when having fun. The safety features abound. I admit I wasn't looking to Chrysler for my next car, but when some one said I should give them a look - they were right. Nice car decent price and a huge fun factor. Yes I'm a fan now!
