That Survived a Rough Patch.
Every Chrysler 200 has refined drive and handling dynamics that provide a smooth ride and highly responsive handling. A MacPherson front strut suspension is tuned to provide an optimum balance of handling and noise isolation, and the multi link rear suspension allows individual articulation of the rear wheels over varying road surfaces to ensure a smooth ride. Comfort tuned springs and shocks, stiffened body mounts and premium 17 inch or 18 inch performance tires provide excellent balance and road gripping maneuverability.
