2016 Chrysler 200 vs. 2016 Toyota Camry
2016 Chrysler 200
2016 Toyota Camry
Palm Coast and Port Orange drivers understand that the 2016 Chrysler 200 stands for luxury in a way that cannot be matched by the 2016 Toyota Camry. The 200 was fully redesigned just last year to provide cutting-edge technology and a superior drive, and it still offers a first-class sedan experience that is exceptional.
Trim Levels and Price
The 2016 Chrysler 200 starts at $21,995, and it’s available in five separate trim levels:
- LX: The entry-level LX comes with enviable features, including 17-inch steel wheels, a keyless ignition and entry system, air conditioning, cruise control, and automatic headlights. Entertainment is provided from a four-speaker sound system with a USB interface and an auxiliary audio jack, while a 60/40-split folding rear seat lets you customize the interior.
- Limited: The Limited trim adds a rearview camera for confident reversing in confined or crowded spaces, as well as the 200’s Uconnect package and comes with a six-speaker sound system.
- 90th Anniversary Edition: All-new for 2016, the 90th Anniversary Edition adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel and eight-way power driver seat for comfort, plus a 8.4-inch touchscreen with satellite radio, heated mirrors, and a sunroof.
- S: The sporty S takes performance as its focus. Your ride is both track-ready and incredibly quiet thanks to sport-tuned suspension and acoustic windshield and front-door glass. The S stands on 18-inch wheels and includes paddle shifters on its leather-wrapped steering wheel for a racing edge.
- 200C: The 200C features leather upholstery for a more executive environment and combines the softer suspension of the Limited with the outstanding amenities of the 200S.
The 2016 Toyota Camry starts at $23,070 with the LE trim, but never matches the 2016 Chrysler 200 in terms of style, comfort, or convenience. Models work their way right up to the $26,310 XSE Camry, which offers Palm Coast and Port Orange drivers features such as 18-inch alloy wheels and LED headlights.
Powertrains and MPG
The 2016 Chrysler 200 is available with one of two advanced engines that will both provide capable cruising power and electrifying performance. The 2016 Toyota Camry’s two engines just can’t keep up.
- Standard Power: The 200’s 2.4L four-cylinder motor is rated at an impressive 184 hp and 173 lb-ft of torque, while the Camry’s standard 2.5L four-cylinder makes only 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque.
- Available Power: The 200 comes with an optional 3.6L V6 engine that can put drivers in command of up to 295 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. The Camry’s V6 will only churn out 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque.
Additionally, each Chrysler 200 engine is paired to a cutting-edge nine-speed automatic transmission system. A technology far superior to the Camry’s six-speed automatic transmission, it ensures seamless shifting and the potential to make up to 23 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway with the base engine or 19 mpg city and 32 mpg highway with the V6.
Unlike the 2016 Toyota Camry, the 2015 200 was named one of Ward’s 10 Best Interiors, standing alongside such autos as the 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith and the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550. The 2016 model follows this bold example. When they ride in the 200, Port Orange and Palm Coast drivers understand that they’re behind the wheel of the very best, with a cabin that defines modern automotive luxury.
There’s also plenty of space for your luggage. While the 2016 Camry provides a 15.4 cubic feet — around average for a midsize sedan — the 200 decides average just isn’t enough, allowing for up to 16 cubic feet.

Both the 2016 Chrysler 200 and the 2016 Toyota Camry are equipped with plenty of safety features as standard, though the 200 takes things a little further with the following protection technologies:
- Electric Park Brake with Safehold: Engages automatically if you exit the vehicle without shifting into Park.
- Four-Channel Electronic Stability Control: Cycles through four modes to maintain directional control in adverse conditions.
