The officials from the Fiat Chrysler Automobile Company have officially announced that at the very end of the 2016, they will going to add yet another model in their line up – the 2016 Chrysler 100. The Chrysler’s designers as well as the engineers are pretty much aware the fact that the path for their highly praised and beloved Chrysler 100 simply won’t be strewn with roses and that their favorite one will be forced to stand in line with its main competitors and to break through very demanding market. So, they gave the very best from themselves, in order to create such a magnificent vehicle. Whether they’ve succeeded in their intention and to what exact level, we leave to you to decide.
Interior, Exterior & Appearance of Chrysler 100 2016
According to the very first reports, this newly made variant will be available in a front wheel drive and will be pretty much similar to its nearest siblings- Chrysler 200, as well as 300 and the Dodge Dart. This practically, means, that we, from this fully refreshed variant, can expect an utterly elegant and highly sophisticated overall design coupled with nothing but the luxurious equipped interior stuffed with the latest technology features and brand new engine option.
When it comes to the exterior design, we’ve already pointed out that this brand new variant will share its platform with the Dodge Dart, but, besides that, this newly made variant will have the aluminum body that will cut down vehicle’s overall weight, while the main purpose of a highly sophisticated and fashionable look will be to attract a broader range of customers.
It is, also, part of a general plan that the Chrysler’s 100 main cabin have more stylish, attractive and elegant interior. Although, we agree with the Chrysler’s designers on that, however, the idea of using high quality materials in a compact sedan raises the question of the price of the car when it finally goes on sale. That’s why the industry experts refuse to believe that this is going to happen and they strongly believe that the Chrysler’s designers will remain fateful using some lower quality materials. Since, the using the high quality materials, in the interior, mean that the price is going to be much higher than it should be and that their beloved 2016 Chrysler 100 won’t be able to be competitive in this segment.
2016 Chrysler 100 Engine
Under the hood of newest 2016 Chrysler 100 edition, we expect to find either a 2,4l Inline-4 engine that will be able to pump up to 184 horses and to deliver approximate about a 174 lb-ft of torque. The second engine option the most certain will be a 1,4l Inline-4 Multi air motor option that will be capable just enough to develop the strength of about a 160 horses and 184 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are intended to come along mated with an automatic transmission with nine speed, delivering all the power to its front wheels.
