2015 Chrysler 200 vs. 2015 Subaru WRX 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 Subaru WRX. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chrysler 200 and the Subaru WRX in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chrysler 200 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru WRX, due to its larger tank size and better 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chrysler 200 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru WRX. 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 Subaru WRX.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 200 is much wider than the Subaru WRX, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chrysler 200, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Subaru WRX.

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

Handling
The Chrysler 200 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Subaru WRX, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 200 is somewhat more powerful than the Subaru WRX.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 200 and the Subaru WRX. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chrysler 200 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Subaru WRX.

Warranty
The Chrysler 200 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru WRX.
