Chrysler 200 Interior
Auto writers are impressed with the 200’s cabin, saying the materials are soft and look good. However, critics say the sedan’s back seat is tight and that there’s little legroom. On the other hand, test drivers say the convertible’s back seat is roomy compared with rival convertibles. Reviewers report that the controls are straightforward, but they are split on whether or not the available touch-screen infotainment system is user-friendly.
- "One of the better attributes of the 2014 Chrysler 200's cabin is its materials quality. Overall, the interior has a pleasing ambience, and its look and feel are competitive with the best of the midsize sedan segment." -- Edmunds
- "If you're going to spend time inside a car it's nice to have an interior as refined, artistic and elegantly styled as that of the Chrysler 200. Quality of materials is first-rate and fit-and-finish is exceptional - it really is a nice place to take a ride." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Happily, every 200 comes with the same premium dashboard materials, including a supple primary covering that wouldn't be out of place in a luxury car. We also like the look of the gauges, and the analog clock is a distinctive Chrysler touch." -- AutoTrader
- "The cabin again stands out thanks to materials, with a quality look and feel. Design-wise, however, the interior could use some spice." -- Cars.com (2013)
The 200 sedan seats five and the 200 convertible seats four. Heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel are standard. Leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are optional. Test drivers say the sedan’s back seat is cramped and that rear legroom is at a premium. The convertible, on the other hand, receives praise from reviewers for its relatively spacious back seat.
- "The 200 sedan has a smaller footprint than its rivals, and backseat passengers pay the price, as rear accommodations are more cramped than in most midsize sedans." -- Edmunds
- "The convertible's back seat, on the other hand, is quite spacious in comparison to most drop-top cars, such as the Ford Mustang convertible or the Chevrolet Camaro convertible. It's quite possible for four adults to enjoy a top-down cruise without feeling cramped." -- AutoTrader
- "Both cloth and leather seats are well-tailored, but rear legroom is tight if the front seats are adjusted for six-footers." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013 sedan)
The 2014 Chrysler 200 comes standard with a four-speaker CD audio system with steering-wheel mounted controls, an auxiliary audio jack, keyless entry and heated fold-away mirrors. Available features include Chrysler’s Uconnect voice-controlled infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touch-screen display, satellite radio, remote start, Bluetooth, a USB input, a Boston Acoustics stereo and a sunroof.
Test drivers say the dash controls are easily accessed, but they give mixed reviews of the 200’s touch screen. While some think it’s straightforward to read and operate, others say the screen is small, and that the display looks dated compared with the systems in rivals.
- "However, the 200's electronics are less impressive, as the available 6.5-inch touchscreen interface looks dated and isn't very intuitive to use compared with the slick audio-navigation interfaces in newer midsize rivals." -- Edmunds
- "On the infotainment front, the 200 has yet to receive Chrysler's big 8.4-inch Uconnect screen. That's a shame since it's the best such unit on the market, while the old, much smaller touchscreen on our tester is feeling awfully outdated these days." -- Left Lane News (2013)
- "Chrysler's newest audio units feature mapping by industry-leader Garmin. Not only is the system intuitively simple to operate, the large 6.5-inch screen makes it easy for older eyes to navigate the on-screen commands." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)
- "All controls are mounted high and in the center of the dashboard, and are within easy reach." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
The 2014 Chrysler 200 sedan has a 13.6 cubic-foot trunk, which is small compared with the trunks in other midsize cars. However, the 200 convertible has 13.3 cubic feet of trunk space with the top up and 7 cubic feet with the top down, which is good for a convertible. One reviewer likes that the convertible’s trunk is capable of holding luggage for two, even with the top down, which is rare for a hardtop convertible.
- "The 200 convertible also offers one of the most generously sized trunks in the segment; at 13.3 cubic feet, it's enormous when the roof is raised and relatively spacious with it lowered as well." -- Edmunds
- "Top up, the convertible's trunk is nearly as large as the sedan's. Top down, there's still enough space for a weekend's worth of luggage for two." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
