In simple terms, the incredibly sleek new design is working to lower the vehicle’s profile, and increase its MPG rating. 

 

Interior

Inspired purely by “class, thoughtful, American design,” Chrysler worked hard to come up with an interior cabin that utilizes luxury materials, all while keeping the cost affordable. The difference in interior quality from the 2014 Chrysler 200 to the 2015 model year is striking.

Aside from offering a quieter overall driving experience, the completely updated cabin also features the following:

  • Two-tone treatments
  • Premium cloth or premium leather seating
  • Satin chrome or warm chrome trim
