2016 Chrysler 200 vs. 2016 Volkswagen Passat Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Passat you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chrysler 200, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chrysler 200 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Passat. 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 Volkswagen Passat.

Dimensions
The Chrysler 200 is a little wider than the Volkswagen Passat, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Chrysler 200 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Passat.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Chrysler 200 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Passat.

Handling
The Chrysler 200 has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Passat, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 200 has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen Passat. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
The Chrysler 200 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Passat.
