2017 Chevrolet Cruze vs. 2016 Chrysler 200 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 200 than the Chevrolet Cruze, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Cruze and the Chrysler 200 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Cruze as you will with the Chrysler 200, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Cruze is clearly a better financial choice over the Chrysler 200. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Cruze carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chrysler 200.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Cruze is much slimmer than the Chrysler 200, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Cruze is slightly shorter than the Chrysler 200, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Cruze transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Chrysler 200.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Cruze is significantly less powerful than the Chrysler 200. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Cruze and the Chrysler 200.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Cruze comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chrysler 200.
