The front-wheel drive 200 is offered in sedan and convertible body styles, as well as four trim levels - LX (sedan only), Touring, Limited and S. Two engines supply power: a 173-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder and a 283-hp 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with flex-fuel capability, mated to either a four-speed automatic or a six-speed automatic with manual shift mode. Building on the value-packed LX trim, the Touring adds aluminum wheels, an 8-way power driver's seat, automatic climate control, satellite radio and a garage door opener. The Limited trim is further equipped with fog lights, 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, heated front seats and leather upholstery, as well as a multimedia centre with 30 gigabytes of internal memory, USB port, Bluetooth streaming audio and DVD video capability. The S trim gets exclusive chromed exhaust finishers and wheel treatment, along with upgraded audio. Safety features include stability and traction control systems, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, active front head restraints, six airbags, tire pressure monitoring and a security system.
After substantial revisions last year, the Chrysler 200 carries over unchanged for 2012.
