Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The 200 is Chrysler's new entrant in the competitive midsize-sedan segment. While it's related to the outgoing Sebring, the car has been vastly overhauled and gets a number of significant changes to its exterior, interior and powertrain. Competitors include the Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.
Exterior The Sebring wasn't what you'd call a gracefully styled sedan, but Chrysler designers have revised the 200's exterior to make it a little more like one. The design is sleeker, and it introduces a new Chrysler wing badge that's more abstract than the current one. The 200's headlights resemble those from the 200C concept car, and they incorporate LED light pipes that give the headlights a high-tech look at night.
There's still the stubby trunklid at the rear, along with the familiar arcing C-pillars, but the 200's revised tail loses much of the Sebring's chunkiness, thanks to new taillights and trim pieces. It's reminiscent of the Jaguar XF's rear, which isn't a bad thing at all. Exterior features include:
Standard 17-inch steel wheels with covers; 17- or 18-inch aluminum wheels optional
Standard heated side mirrors
Standard remote keyless entry
Standard variable intermittent windshield wipers
Optional power sunroof
Interior The interior of the 200 has been revamped with a new dashboard that uses richer materials and features greater attention to detail in things like the air vents and door trim inserts. The end result is cabin quality that should be reasonably competitive for a few years. Interior features include:
Standard cloth seats; leather upholstery optional
Standard air conditioning; automatic air conditioning optional
Standard CD stereo with auxiliary input jack
Standard analog clock
Standard tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio controls
Standard 60/40-split folding backseat
Optional heated front seats
Optional touch-screen audio system with 28 gigabytes of music storage
Optional navigation system
Under the Hood The 200's base engine is a 173-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder. Depending on the trim level, it teams with either a four- or six-speed automatic transmission. The optional engine is Chrysler's new 3.6-liter V-6, which is rated at 283 hp and works with a six-speed automatic.
Both engines can use regular gas
Safety Standard safety features include:
Electronic stability system
Side-impact airbags for the front seats
Side curtain airbags
Active front head restraints
