Fiat Chrysler Automobile Company is going to add yet another model in their line up – the 2016 Chrysler 100. This car is destined to enter a demanding market, with fierce competition and it is going to have tough job proving itself. According to the reports, the 2016 Chrysler 100 will have front wheel drive and it is going to be similar to the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200. Fiat Chrysler Automobile wants to be a top contender in a very interesting market and they plan to do it with Chrysler 200 and all-new 2016 Chrysler 100.
2016 Chrysler 100 Exterior
First of all, the 2016 Chrysler 100 is still in the works, which means that there are no official images or any other information, except what was published in online reports. Most of the reports suggest that the 2016 Chrysler 100 is going to be based on “Compact U.S. Wide” platform that has front wheel drive and it is a platform used for Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200. The car was first mentioned in presentation created by Chrysler for their investors and the main idea is to differentiate their all-new car from its competitors. The list of the competitors of the 2016 Chrysler 100 is pretty long and some of them are: Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Ford Focus and Chevrolet Cruze. Some reports suggested that the Chrysler is planning to revive the PT Cruiser, but it appears that this info is false.
This new Chrysler is going to be a new contender in the compact sedan market, but some experts strongly believe that the new model is going to borrow looks from its older brother – the Chrysler 200.
Interior of 2016 Chrysler 100
The interior of the Chrysler 100 is probably going to be very similar to the interiors in other Chrysler models. We can expect a monotone interior, with small details and chrome accents throughout the cabin. Chrysler will probably use the analog speedometer and tachometer, while the center of the dashboard will have a large touchscreen display, used for infotainment system, satellite navigation and audio controls.
The 2016 Chrysler 100 should have stylish and elegant interior, at least according to reports published online. However, the idea of using high quality materials in a compact sedan raises the question of the price of the car when it goes on sale – industry experts believe that it is not likely to see high quality materials in the interior, since this means that the price is going to be much higher than it should be, which means that the car couldn’t compete with other cars in this segment.
Chrysler 100 2016 Engine
When it comes to choosing the engine and transmission, the 2016 Chrysler 100 has limited options, due to the front wheel drive platform, on which it is going to be built. The manufacturer will probably choose their reliable 2.4l 4-cylinder engine that produces 180 horsepower and 173 lb-feet of torque.
Chrysler 100 Price
The manufacturer didn’t release any official info about the price of the 2016 Chrysler 100.
Release date of 100 Chrysler 2016
We are not going to see the 2016 Chrysler 100 anytime soon, it could be unveiled in the 2015 and it could go on sale in 2016.
