'''Chrysler 200 (JS). 2011 to date (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan, 2-door coupé–cabriolet. F/F, 2360 cm³ (4 cyl. DOHC), 3605 cm³ (V6 DOHC).''' Heavily revised Sebring, but with quality upped substantially over its predecessor.

Dumpy proportions of predecessor still present, but some efforts made to improve exterior styling; interior appears more complete, though switchgear carried over. Improved seats, though interior space poor, and short deck bad for boot space. Stiffened body mounts, improved suspension, more refinement. Pentastar V6 available, with smooth power delivery and very good acceleration. Average handling. Rebadged as [[Lancia Flavia]] on the European Continent. Competitively priced in US market.

Renamed Sebring, in an attempt to cast off the rental-car image that that model gained, and tying Chrysler’s mid-sizer to the successful 300. Hurriedly revised, but sold on the strength of an aspirational marketing campaign. Second-generation 200 more convincing and a far more thought-out rival to the Ford Fusion and the imports, but the market was against CD-segment sedans. Chrysler killed the 200 in favour of crossovers and Jeeps.
