A roundup of what analysts, journalists and others said about the redesigned 2015 Chrysler 200, which debuted last week at the show:
"Chrysler is coming out with what looks to be a much more competitive product just as the competition is aging. There's opportunity in the segment if they're able to hit it."
-- Jeff Schuster, an analyst with LMC Automotive, via Bloomberg
"California will be crucial to the 200's success. Buyers in the state traditionally favor imports more than other parts of the country. Chrysler is keenly aware of that marketing challenge."
-- David Undercoffler, Los Angeles Times
"The latest in a long line of unsuccessful Chrysler midsize sedans. If you've seen the fastback Audi A7, you've seen the 200."
-- The New York Times
"The new look is shockingly minimal for Chrysler, without a retro cue in sight and barely a hint of chrome. It's particularly weird to see Chrysler's winged emblem in that small mesh grille, and not some showier prow like the 300's."
-- Stephen Edelstein, Digital Trends
"Mid-sized sedans are like smartphones: Two companies dominate, and the margin for error is incredibly low. Chrysler's version has done fine but never well enough to threaten the category leaders. Last year it slipped behind the Ford Fusion and Chevy Malibu, while Honda's Accord and Toyota's Camry continued to dominate the space."
