There is no doubt that convertibles are simply more fun. This market-dominant offering from Chrysler now comes with a hard top—a $1,995 option—giving you a coupe feel while still delivering sunray-catching ability. You can also get the car with a classic soft top. If you like the wind in your hair but your wallet is not totally stuffed, go for this vehicle, which packs a good value; you’ll get more cargo and passenger space than comparable cars in its class.
We found this edition to be solid, stiff and good all around. The base car comes with an in-line 2.4 liter four-cylinder 173 hp motor; up in the line is the Touring with a 2.7 liter DOHC V6 engine making 190 hp; and finally, our tester had a beefier 235 hp V6 engine. In any case, don’t take it on the track but instead cruise up the Pacific Coast Highway without having to worry about the CHP and enjoy the day. The spacious interior has a luxurious feel. Check out the plastic tortoise shell steering wheel and trim. Step in the Sebring convertible, crank its MP3 capable radio with in-dash six-disc DVD player through the six Boston Acoustics speakers, and catch the romance in the air.
