would you trade a camaro for this...

ever since the Chrysler 200 Came out I was attracted to the car, 283 horses in a small luxurious car for only $24k. But when it came to buy I completely overlooked it for a LS Camaro but now I sort of regret that..... But I want to go check one out to see what I'm missing.... seriously doubt I'm going to trade in because I like the stick shift, just wish I had the funds for a collection of cars cause the 200 would definitely be one to own. what od you think, would you trade an LS Camaro for this??

For me, no. For the wife? Yes. Looks good, but I'd have to wait for performance/mileage numbers, along with price.

Personally I think the car is ugly... I wouldn't buy one for me or the wife.... My wife likes the ford fusion.

Mine is either gonna buy the '14 Mazda6 Grand Touring or the '13 Fusion Titanium. She's leaning towards the Mazda ATM. Showed the 200 to her and she likes it, though she likes the other two more.

Guy on another site I'm on has one. Loves the car, but the recycled plastic in the interior stunk.

If you are that hung up on one of these, test drive it on a hot day with the windows up.

I'm not going to lie. Not a bad car... If I had kids to worry about, I might take that over an LS. But I'm glad I don't have to worry about that.

That must be a new model because it doesn't look like the current one. I do think it looks ok but one would have to be in sane to give up a ZL1 for it. I might buy it as a daily driver with the retractable hard top and two less doors.

What? All 200s have high grade soft touch materials on the inside. they got the same treatment in 11 as the other new/updated Chrysler products. it is actually a VERY nice and high quality interior. Sur you are not thinking of the old Sebring?

That is the 200 concept from a few years ago. The current 200 is a very nice sedan and despite the fact it hasn't gotten much attention it is pretty competitive, if a little bit smaller, than the competition. That said, this is a wierd comparison. the cars are total opposites. RWD/2 door/manual sports coupe vs FWD/4d/automatic. By virtue of the beasts the Camaro is going to hold a advantage is all performance categories, the 200 in all utility categories, the Camaro is going to be better on dry roads, the 200 in wet and snowy climates. The 200 will hold more people in more comfort, the 200 is also very attractive in pricing as it comes loaded for thousands less than it's competition and with the large discounts available youn can get a loaded one in the low 20s and a nicely equipped one in the teens. There is also the all new 200 which is expected to come out next year sometime which will be a fully competive car and should be considerably nicer, though I am guesing we will see an according price increase. Anyways, I wouldn't really expect anyone to say they would trade their Camaro for a 300 anymore than I would expect them to want to trade for a Malibu orn Impala. Two totally different beasts with two totally different missions.

No for me. I don't care for the looks and I'm sure it eats up a ton of gas. My wife didn't like it either. She likes this car called,um what was it again, oh ya a 2010 Camaro! Never heard of that car but it sounds like a P.O.S.. women! Pft!

Just FYI, that picture is not the production Chrysler 200.
The 200 is not a bad car. Good power, decent quality, competitive price. It's not a segment leading car but it's also not the worst. I just don't understand why you are considering trading the Camaro for a 200. They are 2 completely different cars that are made for 2 different kinds of people. Sounds like your Camaro purchase was an impulse buy.

Of course keeping in mind you comparing a 20k car to one that will be at least double the price.......
