2012 Chrysler 200 vs. 2012 Ford Fusion
Those drivers in Regina searching for a quality full-size sedan need to look no further than the 2012 Chrysler 200, although there are a lot of comparable vehicles to choose from. As Detroit’s quality of engineering continues to improve with each passing year, the choices can be narrowed down to the two segment leaders: the Chrysler 200 and the Ford’s 2012 Fusion.
While both Chrysler and Ford make exceptional vehicles, we feel that the 2012 Chrysler 200 is the better purchase, and we think our fellow Canadians driving enthusiasts will agree.
The 200 Leads in Powertrain, Fuel Economy, and Features
Because both sedans make it clear that they’re aspiring to set a high standard for luxury vehicles, we wanted to compare the best of each automaker. For Regina residents that means looking at the differences between the 2012 200 S-class and the 2012 Ford Fusion Sport, and between the two, the Fusion cannot compete with the 200.
For power, the Chrysler 200 S’s 3.6L V6 engine produces an impressive 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, numbers that just can’t be beat by the Fusion Sport’s 3.5L, 263hp V6 engine, which only cranks out 249 lb-ft of torque.
And while the 200 S’s has the upper hand in power, unlike other models, it doesn’t sacrifice anything in the way of fuel economy, getting upwards of 12.3 L/100km in the city and 8.1 L/100km on the freeway. The 200 S has the advantage over the Sport’s less impressive 13.1 L/100km (city) and 8.7 L/100km. When it comes to which vehicle will reward you more at the gas pump, the answer is clearly the Chrysler.
When it comes to beautiful interiors, the 200 S has the Sport beat; after all, the Chrysler is a luxury vehicle, while the Ford Fusion, try as it might, simply isn’t. Adorned with premium materials, and high quality amenities like front row heated seating, universal remote transmitters (for garage doors, home security systems, etc.), and Boston audio systems, the 200 provides a more convenient and comfortable driving environment.
