The 2012 Chrysler 200 is available in four trim levels — LX, Touring, Limited and S models. The Chrysler 200 drives down the road with poise. The suspension provides a comfortable, well-controlled ride and its handling is better than that of many other midsize sedans.

Performance with the 2.4-liter 4 cylinder engine is acceptable and adequate for most drivers. The 3.6-liter V6 is quite energetic. A more robust engine, it delivers strong acceleration without a tremendous sacrifice in fuel economy.
