The Chrysler 200 Convertible replaces the outgoing Sebring and while it is still based on that model it is a significant update including numerous cosmetic and powertrain changes.
A top of the range S model adds a premium Boston Acoustic speaker system and more luxurious trim details including heather leather seats with suede inserts.
Chrysler’s relationship with Fiat is obviously paying off as the 200 features a much needed improved interior with more premium materials, deeper cushioned seats. While outside the up-to-date styling is better balanced and there are features such as LED lighting.
The 200 comes with a cloth convertible top as standard, but there is also the option of a folding metal hardtop. Both tops use the same mechanism so the luggage space is the same whichever option you choose.
The 2.4 litre four cylinder with six-speed automatic transmission is carried over from the Sebring and uses a little less fuel than the V6 alternatives. Despite being the base model, the Touring comes with a good level of standard equipment including power seats and keyless entry.
The Chrysler 200 Limited Convertible comes with the 3.6 litre Pentastar V6 as standard along with a six-speed automatic transmission. The all aluminium engine comes with variable valve timing and produces a potent amount of power. The Limited model also gets a folding hardtop, leather seats and a touch screen media centre among its standard equipment.
