With a fresh new design, advanced features and an affordable price tag, the 2015 Chrysler 200 has a lot going for it. And now you have yet another reason to at least consider it as your next mid-size family car, as its official EPA ratings have been announced, and they are good.

According to the EPA, he entry-level four-cylinder 2015 Chrysler 200 powered by the 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir delivers 23 mpg city, 36 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined. The V6 Pentastar-powered 200 with a 295 horsepower 3.6 liter engine meanwhile returns 19 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined.

There is also a version of the 2015 Chrysler 200 V6 equipped with all-wheel-drive, which does 18 mpg city, 29 mpg highway and 22 mpg. So if you want the sure-footed performance of the AWD model, be prepared to sacrifice a couple of mpgs.

Chrysler 200 owes a large part of its economy to the new nine-speed automatic transmission, which has smaller ratio steps between its gears than conventional units. The car also benefits from excellent aerodynamics with a 0.27 Cd which aids improved fuel economy, on-road dynamics, and reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).

Considering all the engineering that’s gone into the 2015 Chrysler 200, and the fact that it no longer looks like something from early 90’s, the starting price of just $21,000 sounds like a bargain.
