2016 Chrysler 200 Specs
The 2016 Chrysler 200 LX is a midsize sedan that offers drivers and passengers convenience, efficiency and functionality. Though the Chrysler 200 LX is the most basic 200 trim, it offers a variety of modern technology features seen on today’s top-selling sedans. Last year’s model, the 2015 Chrysler 200, won several awards and with the upgrades made to this year’s 200, the 200 will probably receive many awards again in 2016.
The Chrysler 200 LX has a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 184 horsepower. It transfers the engine power to the vehicle’s front-wheels through the automatic nine-speed transmission. Drivers will enjoy the 200’s excellent estimated fuel economy of 23 MPG in the city and 36 MPG on the highway.
The 200 LX comes standard with soft, cloth seats and buyers have the option of choosing a light grey or black interior. The car has approximately 16 cubic feet of trunk space and the rear seats have a 60/40 pass-through to the trunk so it is easy to get extra trunk space when needed.
A bright LED illuminated instrument panel improves the visibility of the gauges and controls on the dashboard. The 200 has two 12-volt power outlets that make it convenient for the driver and a passenger to simultaneously charge their mobile devices. The 200 LX comes standard with a four-speaker sound system and an auxiliary sound system that has a USB port that makes it possible for drivers to play music from mobile devices while driving.
Controls on the steering wheel help drivers to keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road at all times. Drivers can access stereo volume, entertainment functions, speed control and the
electronic vehicle information center from the steering wheel.
Standard safety equipment on the 200 LX includes anti-lock brakes paired with traction and stability control. Front and side airbags along with front passenger knee airbags protect drivers and front seat passenger and side curtain airbags protect backseat passengers. The 200 has received five stars for overall protection as well as both side impact and front impact protection in government crash tests. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named this year’s current model a “top safety pick.”
The 200 has a clean, simple curved body. To help maintain a minimal style, the car’s antenna has been integrated into the windshield and the vehicle’s exhausts are hidden. The 200 LX rides on 17-inch steel wheels wrapped with Nexen brand tires. In case of a flat, the 200 is equipped with a tire service kit and a compact spare tire. The car has a keyless ignition as well as keyless entry. The car’s automatic headlights provide extra safety and the car’s tilt steering wheel allows drivers to find their perfect position while driving.
