I had an opportunity to take part in The Chrysler Experience and test drive the redesigned 2015 Chrysler 200 Sedan. I was accompanied by my mom who loves cars. (She could probably be an auto mechanic if she had the time in her busy “retirement” schedule!) I knew she would appreciate talking with someone who shares her enthusiasm for a well built engine. I’m pretty much into the bright and shiny “toys” of a car, ‘What does this button do? What about that one?’ The Chrysler 200 Sedan looked sleek and the functions were fancy and fun! Rob, I think we need a new car :->
As I closed the door I felt as if I was sitting in a command center. A bright and cozy command center. Very comfortable seats with enough head room for this 5’10” – long torso’d person. When I asked for the key the Rep. directed me to a button. “While in Park, push this button and the car will start”, said the very helpful Meagan. Nice! The 2015 Chrysler Sedan is the only car in its class to offer a nine-speed automatic transmission. The 7-Inch customizable driver information display feature caught my attention with it’s full-color graphics and real time information. And a personal bonus was a pass-through storage area under the console that’s accessible by the driver and front-seat passenger. It fit my huge purse perfectly!
Here’s something else that was MUCH appreciated:
On this day in particular the latest feature of air-conditioned seats was great! It was 90 degrees and cool air emanating from the seats was a very welcome surprise. This sedan comes with a rear-view monitor in the dash, along with guides to help you align with parallel parking which is something I definitely need help with. (Thank goodness parallel parking wasn’t on my drivers’ test.) Yay for help with parallel parking! Check out this short video that will show you all of the interior design features:
When I was done with my test drive my mom took a turn behind the wheel. She was more interested in talking about what the Chrysler 200 Sedan could do then drive it for herself. No problem! The very helpful Rep. Megan was more than ready to answer mom’s questions. The 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® II four-cylinder engine provides up to 36 highway mpg. the All-New 2015 Chrysler 200 has more available horsepower than Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Malibu.
If you are interested in the Chrysler 200 Sedan visit a dealer near you and take a test drive. Come back and let me know what you think.
