Chrysler has no plans (at least, none that we're aware of) that involve bringing a 200 wagon to market. If those plans change, we think the automaker should look towards Theophilus Chin for inspiration. We've seen Chin's renderings before, and his take on the 200 wagon suggests that the family hauler would also be a pretty decent looker, particularly as it forgoes the sedan's awkward greenhouse in favor of a more traditional form.

Chin takes on the rendering from both front and rear angles, and you can take a closer look at each by clicking through the gallery.

Now that you've taken a look, we'd like to know what you think. Should Chrysler expand the 200 lineup with a wagon? Have a say in our informal poll below.

      I think that they should wait till the proposed shortened LX platform 200 replacement arrives before making a wagon.

      Can any wagon posts by AB please have a disclaimer for 12 year olds. YES, you want it to be a AWD diesel manual. God it never gets old with this crowd! You put out what it is and then ask for the opposite. RWD Electric that runs on wind and candy! IDIOTS!

      For the next generation Chrysler 200, yes. The rendering looks awesome, and it would probably look great in real life, but I would prefer Chrysler spend its R&D and production budget on other cars/projects.

      This is the best looking 200 I've ever seen, official or not. Chin's rendition replaces the hiddeous 200 rear-quarter with a clean look. Good job Mr. Chin!

      Does it look better? Yes. Is it more practical? Yes. Will people in this country buy a midsize wagon? Unfortunately most likely not since its not a crossover. The people on this blog are enthusiasts so we see the benefit to something like this, most likely the rest of the country wont and it will flop.

      The next 200 is just around the corner and probably wont look anything like the current (new) one. As for a wagon version, dont bother. They already have the Journey for that.

        The journey rides higher than a 200 wagon would, lol. Americans suburbanites sure love their crossovers, with their high centers of gravity. Oh wells.

      Its probably too late for them to build one since the 200C is a mid-cycle update of the Sebring.

      I think this is a wagon (much) better left to the fantasy files, decent looking though it is.

      As much as it would make a good addition to the Chrysler lineup and probably get high 20s MPG (29?) I don't see it happening since the imports from Italy (management and vehicles) still have yet to get known by the press and public. Check Allpar.com for other news, like the potential Dodge Hornet (? - name tbd) based loosely on the Alfa Romeo Giulietta aka the C-US-Wide chassis

      Given the next 200 ought to be around the corner (MY 2013?), it would not make sense. However, a wagon variant should definitely be considered when the new one comes out, especially for European markets as the Lancia Flavia Estate.

      Sure Chrysler, build the 200 wagon, but first give us a SRT6 sedan/convertible and then! give us the wagon in both 200 S and 200 SRT6 versions. Now, that would be beautiful; and since the name SRT6 came up, why not revive it in a new Crossfire? Hello sportiness!

        I totally agree. I saw this and thought: Wait...isn't that a 1990's Toyota Camry wagon? Maybe great in 1990 but more of a dog in 2012.
