The 2012 Chrysler 200's exterior features new sheet metal, 17-inch aluminum wheels and has a muscular profile that still hints at the car's increased agility. The headlights have a black background and the door handles and mirrors are body-colored. Body colors for the 2012 Chrysler 200 include Black, Bright Silver Metallic, Blackberry Pearl, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl, Bright White Pearl, Deep Cherry Red Crystal Pearl, Tungsten Silver Metallic and Sapphire Crystal Metallic Clear. Inside, the seats have been completely redesigned with improved cushion material and better spring geometry. Interior lighting has also been given another look and special attention has been paid to the areas around the glove compartment and floor console. Audio controls on the wheel are standard from the base-model up.
On the convertible, drivers can lower the soft or hard top with the press of a button on the key fob or by hitting a switch on the instrument panel. The hard top takes about 30 seconds to raise and retract, and the soft top is slightly quicker at 27 seconds. Either one you choose, the 2012 Chrysler 200 is sure to please.
