First Drive: 2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible

All in all, the 200 is a commendable effort at fixing a car that sorely needed fixing. While the 200 sedan faces all manner of superb competitors in the mid-size-sedan arena, the 200 convertible, although imperfect, should have an easier time of it, as there aren't that many cars in its class that offer its combination of features, roominess, and price. Speaking of which, the Touring starts at $27,195, including destination, which represents about a $1400 drop from a comparably equipped Sebring; and the Limited starts at $31,990. A Touring model with V-6 seems like the way to go, and that starts at $28,990. The cars go on sale this spring.
