2013 Chrysler 200 in West Palm Beach
For the 200 sedan, the former S model is now available as a package for the Touring and Limited trim levels. The S Appearance Package includes 18-inch aluminum wheels and black accents for the grille, fog lamp bezels, headlights and badges. The S Package builds upon it with the addition of leather-trimmed seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The 200 convertible, meanwhile, receives an overhauled suspension that includes a larger front stabilizer bar, revised shock damping and new spring rates for a more engaging driving experience, according to Chrysler. The Chrysler 200 replaced the much-maligned Chrysler Sebring. It uses the same platform as the Sebring, but engineers changed and strengthened so many things (chassis, engine, transmissions, suspension, brakes, body, interior that it was almost a new car. The cabin is one of the quietest in the segment, thanks to new sound absorption materials, as well as an acoustic glass windshield, laminated side glass usually found in higher priced vehicles, and special engine mounting for the engine.

2013 Chrysler 200 Power & Handling
The Chrysler 200 is put together well. Low road noise contributed a lot to this conclusion, with quiet-running Michelin tires and a retuned exhaust system. Same with the steering and ride: smooth and solid, even the convertible. The Chrysler 200 corners really well, with little body roll. The 6-speed manual automatic transmission is beautiful, seamless and not over-programmed. Chrysler calls it AutoStick, a name they've been using for 15 years, because they invented it. That's right, the manual automatic transmission first appeared in the 1997 Chrysler Cirrus Sebring, when it was perfectly programmed; that is, it did nothing without the driver's input. The 6-speed automatic is a good reason to step up from the base model, which comes with a 4-speed automatic.
2013 Chrysler 200 Design
The Chrysler 200 front air dam is clean: low, thin, and horizontal. Its halogen headlights appear small from head-on, but flow around the front corners into the bulging fenders, creating a line that widens to the rear of the car. It makes a statement that says, We're bold not fancy. We got slab sides. So what? We like them. The rear deck lid looks chopped, with a chrome strip between LED taillamps and another chrome bar between the exhaust outlets that widens the look of the car. It bears a wing logo in brushed metal and blue, replacing the old traditional wing logo, to signify the rebirth of Chrysler.
