Elegant Hardtop Convertible

In short: A stylish and comfortable hardtop convertible.

As the drop-top cousin of the excellent Chrysler 200 sedan, this cool convertible combines elegant styling with a comfortable interior and a reasonable price that belies its luxury leanings. A 283-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 and 6-speed manumatic shifting make the 200 convertible great for a joyride on a sunny summer day, while roomy rear seating means that your friends can join in on the fun, as well. Create the perfect playlist for your pleasure cruise and upload it to the available Uconnect media center, which can store thousands of songs, videos, photos and more.
