What Is the 2014 Chrysler 200?

The 2014 Chrysler 200 is a front-wheel-drive, four- or five-seat mid-size sedan or convertible that competes with the Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. Trim levels include the LX, Touring, Limited and S.

What's New on the 2014 Chrysler 200?

There were no major changes to the 2014 Chrysler 200.

How Does the 2014 Chrysler 200 Compare to Other Mid-Size Sedans?

The Chrysler 200 cuts a striking profile, and its interior is filled with nice touches that give the cabin a premium feeling - unfortunately, the nice feelings inspired by its good looks turn to dust when you get behind the wheel.

The base engine in particular struggles to get up to speed, which is all the more demoralizing in light of the 200's fuel economy numbers. With a four-cylinder engine and a six-speed transmission, it returns a mere 21/29 mpg city/highway, less than the four-cylinder options of the Honda Accord (27/36), Ford Fusion (22/34) and Toyota Camry (25/35).

The 2014 200 is mostly competitive but its backseat is small for its class and it lags behind competitors in trunk space, which comes in at a meager 13.6 cubic feet. That's less than the Fusion (16.0), Accord (15.8) and Camry (15.4).

What Features in the 2014 Chrysler 200 Are Most Important?

The 2014 Chrysler 200 comes standard with a 173-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine working with a four-speed automatic transmission; a six-speed automatic transmission is optional with this engine. The available 283-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 comes paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. All Chrysler 200 models feature front-wheel drive.

Significant standard features include 17-inch steel wheels with covers, manual air conditioning, LED light pipes, CD stereo with MP3 jack, cloth seats, power heated side mirrors, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, remote keyless entry, a 60/40-split folding backseat (sedan), variable intermittent windshield wipers and a power cloth soft-top (convertible).

Significant available features include heated front seats, a power moonroof, a power-retractable hardtop (convertible), 17- or 18-inch aluminum wheels, a touchscreen stereo with 28 GB of music storage, leather upholstery and a navigation system.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes, active front head restraints, an electronic stability system, side curtain airbags (in the sedan) and side-impact airbags for the front seats.

Should I Buy the 2014 Chrysler 200?

The Chrysler 200 features quality cabin materials, a polished design and an affordable price - but that's not enough to cover its many shortcomings. Not only are its engine options severely lacking in terms of both power and efficiency, but its interior and cargo space are cramped when compared with its leading competitors, and its dated multimedia interface and lack of a backup camera means that it's also missing many of the conveniences of other mid-size sedans.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
