When Chrysler replaced the Sebring with the 200 , the world rejoiced at the elimination of the outdated and never truly impressive drop top. Unfortunately, the 200 was not a full redesign of its predecessor, rather just a nip here, a tuck there, some new headlights and basic interior changes. So, essentially, the 200’s body style is in its 6th production year, making it a year overdue for a revision.
This revision happened just in time for the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, when Chrysler unveiled not only the new 200, but also its new design direction. According to the company, some of the design features you see in the new 200 will also be featured in all its future models, like the new grille and headlamps.
The new Chrysler 200 will be put on sale in the second quarter of 2014 at a starting price of $21,700.
