The 2017 Chrysler 200 is known to be a fast-selling car but it is not one of the favorites of several critics. The reviews for such vehicle are considered mediocre, to a point even disappointing. It did not fare well in many aspects, however, the vehicle is still among one of the popular ones.
According to Cheat Sheet, it considered the Chrysler 200 as handsome but bland vehicle first seen and released back in 2015. Unfortunately, the sedan wasn't able to keep up with its tough rivals such as Mazda6, Ford Fusion, and Honda Accord. While its competitors are aggressively innovating, the Chrysler was somehow left out in terms of appearance and performance.
The price may be considered rather affordable, but unfortunately many may veer away from it because there are other better alternatives belonging to the same price range. As earlier reported, its competitors not only are constantly evolving, but the price is also becoming more flexible.
As added by Kelley Blue Book, the consumer rating of 2017 Chrysler 200 is not bad as it comfortably sits on a 7.8 out of a possible 10. It also fared well in its overall rating, rating the highest on design for both interior and exterior garnering a score of 8.8.
The sedan is not at all bad as it is a good family car that looks like a premium car. It features ventilated front seats and heated steering wheel makes the sedan top of the class. Some of its competitors may not even these features. It also earns five-star safety rating as seen on this twitter post.

However, it is disappointing to know that the Chrysler sedan doesn't have a powerful or refined 4-cylinder engine. It also doesn't have the roomiest of rear seats. The site even suggested that for cabin comfort and space, it is better to go for Volkswagen Passat, Subaru Legacy or Hyundai Sonata.
The driving is not impressive as the 2017 Chrysler 200 made for a sluggish performance and lack of refinement. It certainly has a long way to go to be at par with the rest. However, it may not have the most spacious interior or disappointing power and performance, it does have one of the most refined and tasteful in the midsize-sedan segment.
