The Chrysler 200 Has Some Surprisingly Powerful Aftermarket Options


This sedan can be so much more than a rental.

Since production started on its secondgeneration in May 2014, the Chrysler 200 has done a lot to step up its game. Agreater sense of refinement in the car comes from the work of Cristian Farcas,who designed a completely revised interior. Not all owners flocked to the 200simply for appearances, however. Starting at a base price of $21,995, the caralso serves as a fantastic platform for further aftermarket appearance andperformance modifications.

Mopar, for example, offers an interior lightingpackage that lets you choose eight different types of ambient lighting insideyour vehicle. For $370, Mopar also offers an accent panel and rear fascia. Thisaftermarket parts manufacturer and K&N also make high-performance airintake systems for the car, while Magnaflow offers full aftermarket catbackexhaust systems that can lead to respectable gains in horsepower. If you’relooking for bigger horsepower numbers, Kraftwerks sells a few superchargers forthe car that range from about $2,000-$3,000. Single turbos are even moreaffordable, starting at $124 for a Spectra Premium unit. Cooling fans for theChrysler 200 can be found for less than $60.
