If you are familiar with the last Chrysler 200, that's probably because you were given one as a rental on vacation, but forget about that: This is the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200. Talk about going from zero to hero; this car has style for days, and there's also plenty of substance underneath. If you're lucky enough to rent one, you might end up wanting to purchase one for yourself. Here are five reasons why the 200 puts Chrysler back in the midsize-sedan mix.

Strong Fuel Economy and Performance

Thanks in part to a novel 9-speed automatic transmission, the 200's base 4-cylinder engine gets 28 miles per gallon overall, including an impressive 36 mpg on the highway. If you want more than the standard 184 horsepower, there's an optional V6 with a pavement-pounding 295 horses, making the 200 one of the quickest family sedans on the market. And if you want extra traction on slippery roads, the 200 is one of the only cars in its class to offer all-wheel drive. Combined with the V6, the all-wheel-drive system makes the 200 an interesting lower-priced alternative to some entry-level luxury sedans.

Attractive, High-Quality Cabin

Chrysler's been making a noticeable effort on the interior front, and this cabin might be the company's best yet. Soft-touch materials abound, and the dashboard is really striking with its graceful curves and rakish center control panel. Interiors don't usually make or break a purchase, but this one's nice enough to tip the scales. In a segment full of look-alikes, the 200's classy decor stands out.

Stellar Touchscreen

The 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system is one of the best in the business, and it's readily available on the Chrysler 200. It offers a big, colorful screen with iPad-like icons, and it's so user-friendly that just about anyone can figure it out. A lot of the touchscreens in this segment are relatively small and humble, with the good stuff reserved for higher-end models. The 200, however, has the same top-of-the-line Uconnect system that you'll find in the Chrysler 300 luxury sedan and the Jeep Grand Cherokee, among others. It's the real deal.

Nimble Handling

The 200 is slightly smaller than some rival family sedans, and from the driver's seat, that's a good thing. Whether you're having a little fun on a back road or swerving to keep your family safe, the 200 feels unusually athletic and stable for a mainstream car. In fact, if you trace its lineage back, you'll find some Alfa Romeo genes in the chassis. Chrysler's new parent company is FIAT, which also owns Alfa Romeo, and the Italians certainly know how to tune a suspension.

Sporty S Model

Our test car was a 200S, and the S definitely stands for sporty in this case. Standard features include 18-in wheels, fog lights and a sport-tuned suspension. Now, you don't exactly need these features, but it's nice that Chrysler gives you the option. Plus, those wheels give the car an upscale look that the typical midsize sedan just can't match.

AutoTrader Says

With its appealing style, efficiency, performance and equipment, the 2015 Chrysler 200 is a breath of fresh air. Forget the rental: This is a car you'll want to keep.
