2011 Chrysler 200 Interior

This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.

Like everything else about the 200, the interior is a marked improvement over the outgoing Sebring. Still, with leaders in the midsize sedan class such as the Hyundai Sonata and Ford Fusion setting the bar high for quality standards, the Chrysler 200 still falls behind. Reviewers complain about the lack of available features, space and materials that still aren’t first-rate.

  • “The interior of the 200 has been revamped with a new dashboard that uses richer materials and features greater attention to detail in things like the air vents and door trim inserts. The end result is cabin quality that should be reasonably competitive for a few years." – Cars.com
  • “Despite Chrysler's best efforts, some of the badness from the Sebring carried over, like the toy-feeling HVAC controls and the incredibly cheap sun visors.” – Motor Trend
  • “Cheapness is now banished; or at least much better disguised.” -- Car and Driver

Seating

Reviewers seem to be disappointed in the seating of the 2011 Chrysler 200. They complain that it’s uncomfortable, and they think there's a shortage of space inside the 200’s cabin.

  • "Backseat space for adults is also underwhelming. The 200's backseat dimensions are smaller than the outgoing Sebring's, which didn't have a particularly roomy backseat in the first place. My knees were at the back of the front seat, and the cabin felt close in general.” – Cars.com
  • “The seats are still pizza box thin, despite the fancy new leather." -- Motor Trend

Interior Features

The interior of the 2011 Chrysler 200 sees welcome changes. Reviewers compliment the new soft-touch dash materials. Unfortunately, some subpar interior materials managed to slip in to the cabin of the 200. While the new navigation interface that uses Garmin navigation software receives praise, most features are noted for their absence. These include dual-zone climate control and interior grab handles. 

  • "Priced at over $28,000, this top spec model did not have dual zone climate control, a powered passenger seat or any sort of grab handle. The latter became a real issue when my co-driver began playing around with the 200's new V-6.” -- Motor Trend
  • "Every spot that you're likely to lean an arm is cushioned, a feature that became welcome when I recently drove a 200 nearly 400 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles." – Detroit Free Press

Cargo

Most reviewers make little mention of the 200’s trunk. However at 13.6 cubic feet, the 200’s trunk is considered small for its class.
