2015 Chrysler 200 vs. 2015 Kia Optima
Chrysler debuted its 200 model back in 2009 and has been refining and perfecting it ever since. This model competes in the mid-size sedan segement, which is one of the most competitive categories in the entire automotive industry. They have given this model a complete redesign for the 2015 model year that is miles ahead of the previous version. Another popular mid-size sedan is Kia’s Optima model so we decided to do a 2015 Chrysler 200 vs. 2015 Kia Optima comparison review to show the ways that the Chrysler 200 is superior to the competion.
For exterior appearance, both the 2015 Chrysler 200 and 2015 Kia Optima are great looking vehicles. However, we feel that the Chrysler 200 edges out the the Optima because it has more of a fresh and modern look due to the complete redesign that it recieved for this year. The Optima still looks great, but the vehicle has not been redesigned for the last four years, and consumers are ready for something new.
One of the things that consumers love about the look of this all-new Chrysler 200 is that it is completely unique. It does not try to follow in the footsteps of the previous generation of the Chrysler 200, or its bigger brother, the Chrysler 300, it has a look that is totally new and completely its own.
