This is Chrysler’s new small saloon, the 200, which will be revealed at today's LA motor show.
The 200, in effect a replacement for the unloved Sebring, will be offered with a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine, mated to either a four-speed or a six-speed automatic transmission, and a 278bhp 3.6-litre V6 with the six-speed auto.
The new model previews Chrysler’s new ‘face’, which is dominated by a large, multi-slat chrome grille. It also gets revised chassis settings over the Sebring’s, promising a softer ride and improved NVH levels.
Interior upgrades include more soft touch materials and new instrument and centre console designs.
Despite the fact that the Sebring made it to UK showrooms, the 200 is not destined to go on sale here. Chrysler sources say the firm believes that the larger 300C covers the market well enough.
It will reach US showrooms later this year.Read more on the Chrysler 200 saloon
