For the indecisive, the 2013 CHRYSLER 200 may be the right choice… #chrysler200 @chrysler #sedan #carreview

For those of you who want a pulse pumping, blood curdling road rocket experience, you can click off now. But for those of you looking for a practical, budget conscious, ego-free 4-seater that looks good and gets you where you need to go without worry, read on…

This silver 2013 CHRYSLER 200 came to me for a week to get a different sort of automotive experience. Although not necessarily an overwhelming design, this 29mpg/hwy people mover had me feeling comfortable, secure and timely. The overall exterior is contemporary and solid, although not distinct. It’s a car for those with not a lot of time to make a decision and feel good about it later. And at a little over $27K, the 200 seats you in black clad interior trim, making going to office, out on the town or picking up groceries an easy jaunt… but feeling secure and safe. And for some, that’s all that’s needed.

A massive list of extras make this car a solid choice for getting the most out of a rather simple car. Although, in a pinch, buy one in black, stick on 20″ rims and tint the windows and you have a sleek, dark patroler that can and will get you into anything. I liked that. Not what the car is, but what it could be if I snagged one.

I’m all for feeling comfortable on PCH, knowing that I can rest my mind of the day’s events and nothing else, but add a small amount to the ride and you get a bit of juice. Even if you didn’t, you can be worry-free knowing that it’s gonna travel you and friends exactly where you want to go. (I think they were testing me by sending the silver one.)

PLUSSES… Chrysler’s overall design language is thickness. Not overweight, but just general girth. From the seats, steering wheel and dash to the belt-line, it says “Go mess with someone else. I’m busy.” That’s focus, and that’s Chrysler. That is also a little bit of what we really need in life right now. Forget your problems and just take care of business. Says a lot about a car company these days.
