February 12, 2015 , Chicago -

The Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA) kicked off the Chicago Auto Show by announcing the 2015 Chrysler 200 captured its coveted “Family Vehicle of the Year” award.

MAMA is a nonprofit group of more than 200 automotive journalists and industry professionals who developed the award to help consumers make a wise purchase decision when it is time to shop for a family vehicle.

“We are delighted that the new Chrysler 200 has been chosen ‘Family Vehicle of the Year’ by the Midwest Automotive Media Association, whose members evaluate dozens of new vehicles throughout the year,” said Al Gardner – President and CEO, Chrysler Brand – FCA US LLC. “The 2015 Chrysler 200 was developed to be the benchmark for mid-size sedans with a timeless, elegant design; clever functionality; a standard nine-speed automatic transmission; a class-leading available all-wheel-drive system; 60 safety and security features and a host of new technology drivers and passengers will value. It is a sedan that drivers will be proud to own, at a value they will appreciate.”

To qualify for the award, vehicles must have four doors, have a starting U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of less than $50,000, appear at one of MAMA’s two annual rallies and be new or significantly updated within one year of the 2014 Spring Rally, which took place last May. The MAMA spring and fall rallies feature up to 100 manufacturer’s vehicles for journalists to drive and evaluate.

“We know how important it is, and how difficult it can be, to pick the right family car,” said Patrick Olsen, MAMA President. “This award helps give consumers a chance to see the car that nearly a hundred automotive journalists –many with families themselves -- selected as the best choice for families in 2015.”

A total of 99 journalists voted the 2015 Chrysler 200 the winner, awarding it 79 points. The second place vehicle finished with 73 points and the third place vehicle was awarded 68 points.

Simple elegance, an exhilarating driving experience, state-of-the-art, easy-to-use technology and beautifully crafted, the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 charts a new course for mid-size sedan customers who have earned a little luxury in their life, but demand value for their money.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 debuts a beautiful exterior design featuring the new “face” of the Chrysler brand – a thoughtful, exquisitely crafted interior and an exceptional driving experience, complements of a segment-first nine-speed automatic transmission. With the choice of two world-class engines, an innovative all-wheel-drive system, available sport mode and paddle shifters for an engaged driving experience, and highway fuel economy of up to 36 miles per gallon, the all-new Chrysler 200 makes the commute something drivers will look forward to.

For peace of mind when driving, the 2015 Chrysler 200 offers the most available safety features in the mid-size sedan segment, and state-of-the-art, easy-to-use technology that keeps drivers and passengers connected. With a starting U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of just $21,800 (excluding $995 destination) the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 is a sedan that customers will be proud to own, at a value they will appreciate.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 is designed, engineered and built, with pride, in Michigan. With a major investment of more than $1 billion, the FCA US Sterling Heights (Mich.) Assembly Plant (SHAP), once slated for closure, sports an all-new paint shop using leading-edge technology, a new, fully robotic body shop and an upgraded assembly area, setting the stage for the world-class craftsmanship found in the all-new 200.
