What I don't get is that they are calling it a mid size. If it is built on the same CUSW platform as the dart, and the dart is considered a compact, why is the 200 midsized.
Did they make it longer? so its a Compact US Wide and Long (CUSW&L) lol



Although the Cherokee is considered a midsized crossover so....
Oh well if they can get a V6 with AWD in the 200, it should fit in the dart...I see fun times ahead.

The same reason that the 90 Imperial was called large when it shared the same platform as the Shadow. They lengthened the platform. It is longer than the Dart (192.3 ft long vs. 183.9 ft long).

I like what it looks like in the photos. I want to see it in person. The seats look like they may be lacking in the padding department.

looking at the numbers the 200 is bigger....but not by much. Not enough IMO to put it in a different class, but I'm not running the show. lol

Keep in mind that most automakers do not consider the Dart a compact. Many of the Dart's dimensions are closer to the midsized competition. Actually, I believe that the EPA listed the Dart as a midsized vehicle for MPG testing.

NO. I hate 4 door sedans. I hate non performance cars.

Now, make a 2 door or 5 door and offer a turbocharged engine with manual trans...THEN we can talk.
