The gen. 2 Chrysler 200 had much more swagger and swankiness than different midsize automobiles. It was once reasonably hamstrung via the problematic early 9-speed ZF transaxle, and via Chrysler’s heretofore dismal popularity for development passenger automobiles.
On the other hand, the really unlucky factor was once that Chrysler went for too small a wheelbase. It wasn’t considerably higher than the compact-class Dodge Dart with which it shared a platform, and that put it in an uncomfortable tweener category…proper as competition just like the Passat, Fusion and Accord had been pushing full-size internal dimensions and making exact full-size automobiles redundant.
A couple of years prior, the 2013 Malibu suffered from a equivalent plight, as a result of GM sought after to make it “international-size” in order that it will promote higher in different markets. (This was once in spite of already having the Opel/Vauxhall/Holden Insignia, which used the similar platform and wheelbase).
