2015 Chrysler 200 vs. 2015 Nissan Altima Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 200 than the Nissan Altima. The Nissan Altima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 200.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chrysler 200 as you will with the Nissan Altima, 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). Whether you pick the Chrysler 200 or the Nissan Altima, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chrysler 200 is much higher than that for the Nissan Altima.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 200 is much wider than the Nissan Altima, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chrysler 200 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Altima.

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

Handling

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 200 and the Nissan Altima. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chrysler 200 as you will in the Nissan Altima.
