2016 Hyundai Sonata

2016 Chrysler 200

Family sedans like the 2016 Hyundai Sonata and the 2016 Chrysler 200 are popular because of their versatility and great gas mileage, but only one can come out the winner when you need a new car. While both sedans offer upgraded features and admirable performance, the Hyundai Sonata offers more room, efficiency, and class-exclusive features than the Chrysler 200, making it the obvious choice for the discerning buyer.

Efficiency and Performance

The 2016 Hyundai Sonata leads the 2016 Chrysler 200 in terms of efficiency and performance, thanks to a choice between three different engine options that each offer impressive fuel economy. The Chrysler only offers two engine options, along with a more intensive 9-speed transmission and a much smaller fuel tank. The Chrysler 200 offers a 2.4L I4 engine that gets up to 184 hp and 36 mpg on the highway, as well as a 3.6L V6 with 295 hp and up to 29 mpg on the highway. What it doesn't have is the range and efficiency of the Hyundai, which offers:

  • A 2.4L I4 engine offering 185 hp, 178 lb-ft of torque, and up to 38 mpg on the highway
  • A 1.6L I4 turbocharged engine offering 178 hp, 195 lb-ft of torque, and up to 38 mpg on the highway
  • A 2.0L I4 turbocharged engine offering 245 hp, 260 lb-ft of torque, and up to 32 mpg on the highway

Space and Capability

Spacious comfort is the name of the game when it comes to family sedans, and this part of the competition easily gives the award to the Sonata. The 2016 Hyundai Sonata offers nearly 5 cubic feet more passenger volume than the 2016 Chrysler 200, which means that you and your passengers can rest comfortably, no matter how long the drive. And in the Sonata, your drive will be pretty long thanks to a large 18.5-gallon fuel tank, which is much more spacious than the 15.1 gallons of the 200. With fewer stops for gas and service, you will get to your destination in record time. The Sonata holds space advantages in other areas as well, including:

  • Cargo volume
  • Front and rear head room
  • Front leg room 
  • Front and rear hip room


Though the 2016 Chrysler 200 touts itself as a luxury family sedan, it is actually the 2016 Hyundai Sonata that offers the best features, including many features that are exclusive to the class. Take, for example, the available eco-spoke aluminum wheels which are designed to be as aerodynamic as possible. Hands full of groceries and gear will love the Sonata's class-exclusive hands-free smart trunk, not available on the 200, which automatically opens when the proximity key is behind the vehicle within three feet for more than three seconds. Class-exclusive rear sunshades are also available on the Hyundai Sonata, making road trips easier for families with small children and sensitive passengers. Finally, the infotainment system on the Hyundai offers an additional inch of space to touch, swipe, and zoom your way through navigation features, smartphone access, entertainment, and more.
