The new Chrysler 200 midsize sedan is in a tough segment, the biggest U.S. auto segment after pickup trucks.
"From the outward appearance and the equipment changes they have made, it's a significant improvement over the current 200," Ibara said. "But the caveat again is we want to get behind the wheel of that vehicle. We look forward to experiencing a smooth, comfortable, well-handling car, if that's what it is."
Ibara said he is a little hesitant about the Chrysler 200 because when the new Dodge Dart first appeared "it had great reviews for appearance. But later, when we drove the vehicle, a lot of us were disappointed with its lack of power."Caldwell said the 200 "got a good reception here -- people liked what they saw, and it will definitely turn heads." But she noted that the midsize segment is difficult and full of good choices. "Buyers in that segment are not swayed by flashy," she said.
