The 2012 Chrysler 200 interior features clearly tell us why this sedan has successfully made its mark in just a couple of years of production. It is more equipped and elegant than before.
Inside the Cabin of 2012 Chrysler 200
For 2012, the 200 sedan and convertible comes with minimal changes. The reason behind this can be the fact that we saw the vehicle undergo a complete makeover last year. A very potent V6 power plant and long list of standard features for an affordable starting price of $18,995 makes the vehicle an excellent pick in corporate sedan segment. The Touring convertible in the line is also one of the most affordable convertibles at $26,775.
Here we try to zero in on 2012 Chrysler 200 interior details and check out what the vehicle has to offer when we go inside its cabin.
Elegant Interior Quality
The cabin depicts class. It has been paid as much attention as its exterior; having said that the interiors are anything but dramatic. The use of fine material quality, better finishing touches and dash, which is much simpler to use make the overall ambience sober and elegant.
Insulation and Tech Features
Thanks to acoustic lamination done on the windshield and the windows at the front, the cabin is extremely quiet and well isolated. Coming to tech features, we do appreciate the inclusion of a navigation unit but the brick-like layout kind of turns us off, as we know that there are rivals out there with much better integration of screens. The single piece dash used by the car maker in this vehicle looks quite like an old school. Some other interesting features are dual-zone conditioning and some good and comfortable interior grab handles.
There are no changes for 2012 in terms of dimensions; so the vehicle still remains quite modest in terms of leg room and head room. On the downside, the vehicle’s interior looks still one of the smallest amongst the rivals. At 13.6 cubic feet, the cargo room is certainly not one of the best in the segment and can pinch if you are on the move with too much of cargo.
Pitted Against the Rivals
Experts feel that the 2012 Chrysler 200 interior quality has definitely improved, but it still lags behind the leaders like Hyundai Sonata and Ford Fusion. These vehicles have set the standards quite high for rest of the rivals including the sedans like 200.
