2015 Chrysler 200 vs 2016 Chrysler 200
A new model year brings new model advances. While the 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan received a full redesign in 2015 that gave it an elegant new style and a more powerful powertrain, progress never stops and the 2016 edition is already pushing the envelope for style, safety, and infotainment features.
