      It's surprisingly good looking, for a Chrysler at least... Yes, it looks better in person
      It has got a little Maserati in it too (from a distance)...

      I've always liked the Sebring / 200 convertibles. I think the overhaul was a great job!

      I've seen the convertible and sedan and was disappoint. Maybe it's a complement to Chrysler's marketing firm, but they look good in pictures/emenim commercial, but in real life all I see is a facelifted Sebring.

      I saw a few at the dealership a few weeks ago.
      I was rather impressed with the overall look and 'feel' of the new offerings, all over the lot.
      Things are starting to turn around for Chrysler I hope.

      Oh I agree it's a very good face lift. When they re-named it 200, I was expecting a totally new car and was disappointed. Sorry, I've spent too much time in Sebring rentals...it's a very bad taste that's hard to get out of your mouth.

      The V6 Sebring Convertible has an electronically-limited top speed of ~115mph indicated. I can vouch for it.

      It drives pretty decently, too.

      A buddy of mine is in the market for a new car and test drove one a few days ago. He was really impressed at how well it drove.

      IDK.. Chrysler has a long history too.
      This badge seems like an evolution of the "vintage" one they started using 16 years ago.

      yeah i know this isn't the first badge like this, it just seems particularly similar since they've written the brand name name on the badge. FWIW, aston martin's logo has been wings-shaped for the better part of 80 years.

      but this angle kinda bothers me a little. there is something odd about the roofline and c pillar.

      Unfortunately you can't change the profile of the Sebring in a face lift. I fully expect Chrysler to remedy the god-awful roofline of the upcoming all new Chrysler 200.

      accord has a similar roofline, but at least C pillar asn't as thick and it has longer ass to make it look bit more balanced than 200. and Hoffmeister kink does help.

      On a trip to D.C. recently, I rented a 200 S sedan from Enterprise and was shocked how good this car was!

      Maybe I expected a sheetcan but there was not much to complain about. The trans hunted a bit, the ride over huge bumps was a bit jarring but that's about it. I did a watch timed 0-60 time of less than 7 seconds. The car was very quiet and rode great. Of course you're not going to set an auto-x records in it but with a better set of tires it wouldn't be bad at all. The sound system sounded very good, I just plugged my thumb drive in and instant tunes! Other than the aforementioned c-piller awkwardness, the styling was just fine.

      Chrysler gets a most improved award

      I was just reading Jamie Kitman's column in Automobile Magazine and he too questioned what was the point of letting the faux rapper run around in the 200 when they have the more luxurious 300? Chrysler did do a brilliant job in that commercial when it comes to fooling you with its looks.

      I've been seeing a lot actually. They're popping up everywhere around DFW. Front & rear look like huge improvements but that side profile still gets me.

      I didn't think they could have made such a decent looking car out of that turd of a Sebring. The short decklid is tough to get over though.
