The five-passenger mid-size Chrysler 200 sedan was completely redesigned in 2015. Although the redesign didn’t effect the vehicle size too much, you don't have to look at it very long to realize that this is a profoundly different sedan. The styling itself is outstanding for a car in this price range, and if you’re a Chrysler afficiando, you could say it ushered in a new design language for the Chrysler brand.
The cabin interior was revamped with nicer materials and a sharp new touchscreen electronics interface was introduced and rated highly for its ease of use. New safety features like blind-spot monitoring and forward collision warning systems were introduced. Not only were the interior and exterior upgrades major, what changed under the hood was even more transformative.
All 2015 Chrysler 200 sedans came standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 184 hp and 173 pound-feet of torque matched to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard on the four-cylinder Limited.
The vehicle’s framework is now more structurally rigid than before and it contributes to a quieter, more refined ride quality. Handling is also exciting for a car in this class. The upgraded 184-horsepower four-cylinder engine offers competitive performance; fuel economy numbers are impressive as well, augmented in large part by that new nine-speed automatic transmission.
Standard equipment on the 200 Limited includes 17-inch steel wheels, keyless ignition and entry, air-conditioning, cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, manually height-adjustable front seats, a 60/40-split-folding rear seat and a four-speaker sound system with USB/iPod integration and an auxiliary audio input, a 5-inch touchscreen display for the audio system along with alloy wheels, upgraded exterior trim and a six-speaker sound system.
The EPA's fuel-economy estimates for the 2015 Chrysler 200 range from 28 mpg combined (23 city/36 highway) for the base engine to 23 mpg combined (19/32) for the V6 and 22/18/29 for the AWD V6.
Buick threw its hat into the near-luxury crossover segment with the Encore in 2013 after several years of revamping and expanding its vehicle line up. The Encore is small, nearly 3 feet shorter and 9.1 inches narrower than the Enclave, with unique Buick styling points in the grille, faux hood portals and blue-tinged headlights.
The Encore delivers on Buick's traditional strengths. It's extraordinarily quiet at highway speeds, and the suspension keeps occupants comfortable by handling the bumps and ruts with complete composure. The cabin's active noise cancellation in the Encore is a Buick first and it is remarkable. You will experience an unparalleled hushed drive.
The wraparound shapes and muted color scheme recall other Buick dashboards and add to the tranquil ambiance of the interior. The 2013 Encore came with plenty of standard features: an elevated driving position, Buick's IntelliLink multimedia system, a turbo four-cylinder automatic transmission, front-wheel drive, an easy-to-park size, high fuel economy and a budget friendly price.
EPA fuel economy estimates for front-wheel-drive Encores stand at 25 mpg city/33 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined, while those with all-wheel drive rated 23/30/26.
The Encore came with standard leatherette-and-cloth or optional full-leather seats. Other options included heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a navigation system and a backup camera. Ten airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are standard.
Behind the rear seats is a luxurious 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space, when the seats are folded down that magnifies to a cavernous 48.4 cubic feet of volume which is closer in dimension to a hatchback. The Encore's fold-flat front passenger seat even allows for longer, narrow objects to fit like skiis, snowboards, hockey equipment, ladders, book shelves, or just a big load from Costco!
Other standard safety features for the 2013 Buick Encore include front-seat knee airbags, front and rear side airbags, side curtain airbags, antilock disc brakes and traction and stability control. Also included is OnStar, which includes automatic crash notification, on-demand roadside assistance, remote door unlocking and stolen vehicle assistance (with subscription).
Forward collision and lane departure warning systems were available as an option.

After receiving a mid-cycle refresh in 2007 the 2008 Nissan Maxima continued to offer an abundant combination of performance, luxury and space. The Maxima comes standard with a V6 along with high quality features and space.
Considered a midsize sedan, the 2008 Nissan Maxima's interior feels unambiguously spacious in both the front and rear. The open feel of the roof SkyView assists in that expansive feel substantially. Driver and passenger seats are wide and comfortable, the dashboard features a sleek and modern design, controls are very user-friendly. Equipment included a power driver seat, tilt-telescoping steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition/entry and an eight-speaker stereo with a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack. Exterior features included 18-inch alloy wheels, side skirts, a rear spoiler, and the fixed SkyView glass-paneled roof; classy design with a sports car feel.
The powertrain of the 2008 Nissan Maxima is a carry-over from the previous year's model: Nissan's award-winning VQ-series V6 and Xtronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) teamed up to propel the 3,600-pound midsize sedan. The result is a maximum of 255 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque directed to the front wheels. The CVT offers smooth, powerful highway performance. EPA estimates rate the Maxima at 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
The striking 2008 Nissan Maxima is brisk off the starting line with a broad midrange that the CVT fully exploits, Nissan does a great job of ensuring the engine works in the most effective range of its power band with plenty of muscle and an incredible lack of road noise.
In the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's frontal crash testing, the Nissan Maxima received a top five-star rating for the driver and four-star rating for the front passenger. Side-impact testing resulted in a four-star rating for both the front and rear seats. Antilock disc brakes with brake assist, traction control, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side-impact head curtain airbags represent the Maxima's key standard safety features.
The suspension is tuned more for well-being than sport and you’ll experience a very comfortable, solid, steering impression under normal driving conditions. This vehicle has superlative comfort on the wide open spaces of the highway - you’ll sense its power, comfort, security and excellent mileage. Mechanically, this vehicle has an excellent reputation for trouble-free operation requiring only routine maintenance. Excellent car, excellent value!
