2017 Chevrolet Sonic vs. 2017 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 Sonic, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Sonic and the Chrysler 200 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chrysler 200 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Sonic, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Sonic 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 Sonic carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chrysler 200.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Sonic is much slimmer than the Chrysler 200, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Sonic, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chrysler 200.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Sonic has much less torque than the Chrysler 200, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Chevrolet Sonic has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Chrysler 200, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Sonic 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 Sonic and the Chrysler 200. The Chevrolet Sonic has less cargo capacity than the Chrysler 200, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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