The 2015 Chrysler 200 has been unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Designed to show the "new 'face' of Chrysler," the 200 has a stylish exterior with a slender grille that is flanked by sweptback headlights. The sedan also has chrome accents, a sporty roofline and gently curved surfaces. If that standard model isn't aggressive enough, the 200S has a more sinister appearance thanks to gloss black accents, a dual exhaust system and available 19-inch aluminum wheels with a Hyper Black finish.

The cabin has been significantly improved with high quality materials and a modern design. Notable highlights include metallic trim, an "e-shift rotary knob" and a unique center console that has a sliding cover which reveals a hidden storage compartment. Options include a digital instrument cluster, an 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system and heated leather seats.

Under the hood, two different engines are available. The 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder produces 184 bhp (137 kW) and 173 lb-ft (234 Nm) of torque, while the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 churns out 295 bhp (220 kW) and 262 lb-ft (355 lb-ft) of torque. The engines are connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system that has a "complete rear-axle disconnect" which "seamlessly switches between front- and all-wheel drive for full-time torque management and does not require input from the driver."

In the tech department, the 200 offers a number of high-end options including Adaptive Cruise Control, a Lane Departure Warning system and a Forward Collision Warning system which can slow or stop the vehicle when a collision is imminent.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 will go on sale in the second quarter of 2014 and pricing will start at $21,700 (excluding $995 destination fee).
