Comparing the 2015 Chrysler 200


The 2015 Chrysler 200 vs. the 2015 Honda Accord

Redesigned for the 2015 model year, the Chrysler 200 is back and better than ever. But how does it stand up to one of its stiffest competitors, the 2015 Honda Accord?


When it comes to safety, the 2015 Chrysler 200 has the 2015 Honda Accord beat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tested both vehicles, awarding the Chrysler 200 the superior title of Top Safety Pick +. The 2015 Honda Accord, on the other hand, was named only a Top Safety Pick. While both vehicles received top marks of "Good" in all five crash tests, the Chrysler 200's optional rear cross-traffic alert and forward-collision braking system has the Accord beat.


Technology is more important than ever to today's drivers. The 2015 Chrysler 200 is the clear winner in this category when pitted against the 2015 Honda Accord. The Chrysler 200 boasts a panoramic sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, a lane-keeping system, and an optional automated parallel parking system-none of which the Accord offers. Additionally, the 200's Uconnect system has proven to be more user-friendly than the Accord's HondaLink (which is only available in the top three trim levels).


Honda is known for making reliable cars, which is one reason why the Accord is so popular. But the new Chrysler 200 aims to take that crown from the Accord, thanks in part to an extended 5-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Compared to the Accord's 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty, the Chrysler 200 comes out on top. Drivers who tend to put a lot of miles on their vehicles and hit 60,000 miles before five years of ownership will appreciate the extra 40,000 miles of coverage that comes with the 2015 Chrysler 200.
