Overview of the Chrysler Sebring

Learn about the Chrysler Sebring

Summary

The Chrysler Sebring is a discontinued mid-size luxury car that was sold from 1995 through 2010. Different trim options produced during this lifespan include convertibles, sedans and coupes (mechanically unrelated to the two other models). Replaced in 2011 by the Chrysler 200, the Sebring—particularly the convertible—still has its admirers. Today it is probably best-known as a common North American rental car. It was criticized for its lackluster acceleration and poor fuel economy, which fell short of rivals such as the Honda Accord. However, it is praised for its longevity, with many of them still on the road.

Safety

Safety features:


  • Front seatbelt pretensioners, passenger head restraint whiplash protection system
  • Anti-lock braking system (ABS) to avoid skidding  
  • Post-collision safety system, which automatically applies the brakes if airbags are activated
  • Front and rear head airbags (sedan only)
  • Remote anti-theft system (convertible only)

The 2010 convertible also features optional Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which interacts with the vehicle’s Brake Assist and traction control to ensure that drivers stay in control, even during sudden stops or turns. You'll find standard multi-stage airbags and optional side-impact airbags on models as old as 2001.

Drivers who are unsure about the safety of an older, discontinued car can rest a little easier, provided the model they purchase is in good condition. The Sebring has received 4/5 and 5/5 safety ratings from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) and “good” ratings from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS).

Interior

From 2008 onwards, the Sebring comes with a standard two-tone beige and cream interior, and the convertible model features six-way power seats for driver and passenger. It also includes several optional luxury seating options, including:

  • Heated, leather-trimmed seats
  • Premium cloth seats with resistance to stains, odours and static
  • Atmospheric lighting

Technology

Although nearly a decade old, the 2010 Sebring convertible features a respectable array of technological features:

  • UConnect: a 6.5-inch infotainment touchscreen featuring a 30GB hard drive, as well as USB and Bluetooth connectivity
  • Sirius satellite radio (standard with UConnect)
  • Chrysler Accessory (available), which turns the convertible into a WiFi hotspot
  • Remote start
  • One-tap convertible top retraction
  • Sound system with six premium Boston Acoustic speakers and 276-watt amplifier (standard on Sebring Limited convertible)

Older models, like the 2000, come standard with a CD player, remote entry and Chrysler's HomeLink home-security system, which enables you to control your home's door locks, alarm, appliances and lighting no matter you are.

Space

With room for five, the Sebring's interior has generally been noted for its spaciousness (although some customers consider the rear seats to be somewhat cramped). Trunk space is not one of the Sebring's strong points—the 2010 sedan offers a mere 4.15 cubic metres of cargo space. Compare that to the Ford Fusion from the same year, which featured a trunk with a comparatively luxurious 5 cubic metres of space.

Comfort

Despite the Sebring's relative spaciousness, its interior materials and plastics on basic trimmings have been consistently criticized as cheap. Even though the 2008 Sebring's interior was restyled, it was still criticized for its "rental car"-level quality. However, stain-resistant fabric and leather seats are available in higher-level trims.
