Significance: No, it isn’t the cutest convertible on the market, but at least it’s got some cool features. But the heated cup holders and a music-holding hard drive pale in comparison to the top options: vinyl, cloth, and steel are all available.
Behold! The new-and-improved version of America’s best-selling convertible, the Chrysler Sebring–now with multiple top options! That’s right; starting in April, you can get your Sebring with a folding roof covered in vinyl, cloth, or steel. All three lids share the same underlying structure, and are designed by Karmann. The folding steel top will make the Sebring the lowest priced convertible to offer a solid roof. The convertible shares a lot with its sedan brother; from the A-pillar forward it’s actually identical. The car isn’t exactly beautiful, but it is an improvement over the sedan. The proportions are less awkward and the car thankfully has a cleaner, less cluttered appearance. Engine choices match those found in the sedan as does most of the interior, including the dashboard. Noteworthy items on the options list are the key-fob operation for the power top, the MyGig hard-drive stereo system that can store up to twenty gigs of data, music, and photos, and a heated and cooled cupholder.
