A navigation system with live traffic and voice commands is optional, as is a Boston Acoustics premium sound system. Colonial has the same texture but is less durable. The 2003 and facelifted 2004—2006 year models were not. Vacations are naturally filled with happy memories of days spent lollygagging in leisure, phones turned off, desks and supervisors in a different time zone, and driving rented Chrysler 200 Convertibles beneath gently swaying palm trees and along coastal roads. Chrysler knows their market well and the ride and handling of this 200S convertible is smoother than the old Sebring chassis with the emphasis put on comfort rather than carving corners. Â I fear you're right and I now think I'd lose that bet by taking the over 2 year side of it. Even in back, there's enough space for two adults, or three in a pinch, although the high beltline might require some Dramamine.
At the top of the lineup is the leather-lined Limited model, with options on that include navigation with live traffic and voice commands, plus Boston Acoustics premium sound. And at 19 mpg city, 29 highway, the new V-6 isn't as bad, but it's still near the back of the pack for a front-wheel-drive sedan. The interior received a similar makeover at the same time, with Chrysler adding lots of soft-touch materials, improved controls and displays, and a more upscale ambience than the Sebring Convertible. Its grille was replaced with a slightly larger black grid. To make your best deal on a 2013 Chrysler 200, be sure to check the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price and see what others in your area are paying. The V-6 engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, which offers a manual shift feature. The interior is impressively quiet with the soft top up - as quiet as many conventional sedans I've driven.

The wear rating of Sonnendeck is also greater than for Haartz, by perhaps 10%. This is the original topping for Porsche Boxster and Cabrio convertible tops. As a result, recollections of the car are likely artificially skewed toward the positive.
Unfortunately, Chrysler stopped making these Hardtop convertibles in 2015. However we've noticed that they're a little odd to get into and out of due to the shape of the door framing and they lack much back support. Three generations of convertibles, two generations of sedans, and two generations of coupes were produced. In sedans, trunk space is a few cubic feet smaller than in most alternatives. However, the 200 sedan doesn't fare nearly as well, falling behind a wealth of talented competition.
A rounded clock top and center mimics the shape of the grille, and the dash has a look that's a little sharper than the smoothed-over design of the Chrysler 300. One is damaged on this car and I was wondering if this is a stock setup. Back-seat space and trunk space in 200 Convertibles, whether you go for the hardtop or softtop, are better than in most other drop-tops. Yet the 200 has campaigned on, playing to its snowbird base, seemingly content that the harshest criticism abated once it abandoned the Sebring nameplate for a numeric nom de plume and tidied up its appearance in 2011. No more hunting of gears while on hilly terrain with the 200. The installation items have been packaged together with the convertible top for extra savings to you. You can also impress people by using the remote control to lower the roof.
Unfortunately, the screen is also virtually invisible when directly sunlight shines upon it, which, with a 200 Convertible, is often. Fuel economy was boosted slightly last year for the Chrysler 200, but you might not have noticed the difference; that's because so many mid-size sedans do better. This is the original material used on British convertibles including Jaguar, Rolls Royce and many others. I would definitely recommend them and will also use them again. Heavier is not better in most cases.
It is a less expensive, though beautiful, fabric than our canvas toppings. The 1997 restyle also saw the addition of ribbed lower body cladding and new wheel styles. Both body styles share certain strengths. This vinyl design is original to most American cars from the fifties to the nineties. Wind noise is impressively subdued with the top up; we've found the convertible to be just a bit louder than the sedan.
Provided the road is relatively straight, the 200 feels solid and unruffled, with nice weighting from the hydraulic power steering, and actually some road feel. This isn't the window sticker site; but, it is a build sheet site. Rearward visibility tends to be an issue in the sedan, given the thick rear pillars and rather high beltline, but you won't find a rearview camera or blind-spot detection on the options list, either. The windbreak comes folded up and in a zipper pouch; it fastens between the front and back seats. I only have 2000 miles on it, so I can't comment on reliability. Still, the 283-horsepower V6 engine was responsive under any conditions, and the six-speed automatic allowed fast takeoffs and downshifted easily when needed.
