2013 Chrysler 200

For years, the Chrysler Sebring has turned heads as one of the few affordable convertible sedans available on the market.  When the Sebring was discontinued in 2010, Chrysler introduced the Chrysler 200 to take its place.  As the sedan continues to mature into its third model year, the 2013 Chrysler 200 experiences further refinements without losing touch with its base offering.

Car and Driver reports that the most significant improvement from last year’s model is that the 2013 Chrysler 200 rides and handles better than ever.  Coming mostly as a result of Chrysler’s alignment with Fiat – the Chrysler brand will be discontinued in Europe and will be sold using the Lancia badge – the 200’s suspension, steering, and transmission have been re-tuned in the spirit of Italy’s legendary pedigree of well-built, responsive autos.  Stiffer struts and springs and rebuilt steering give way to a driving experience which is tighter and more direct than in the 2012 iteration, which remains available at your Chrysler Las Vegas dealer.

Of course, there is more to the 200 than improved suspension.  The 200 comes in several trim levels, from the base 200 LX with its 30 miles-per-gallon highway efficiency all the way up to the 200S Convertible with a choice of soft- or hard-top convertible options and a stout 3.6-liter V6 engine with variable valve timing.  The 200S achieves 283 horsepower with 260 lb-ft of torque, but still maintains an impressive 29 miles-per-gallon highway efficiency estimate.

The interior of the 2013 Chrysler 200 retains its unmatched spacious design and includes standard heated leather-trimmed front seats, a 40GB touchscreen radio with Uconnect, and a free one-year subscription to Sirius XM radio.  In terms of comfort, virtually no other convertible can match the comfort and space afforded to four adult passengers in the Chrysler 200.

The associates at Chapman Chrysler understand that today’s auto buyer demands more from their vehicle – the updated 2013 Chrysler 200 is carefully designed to exceed those expectations.
