The Chrysler Sebring is a mid-size vehicle produced during the 1996 to 2010 model years. The Sebring was available in convertible, coupe, and four-door sedan models. The sedan offered a greater seating capacity, making that model a better choice for families. The Sebring's engines are located in the front of the car and all model years offered front-wheel drive, with the third generation model years of 2007 to 2010 offering four-wheel drive as well.
The 2010 Chrysler Sebring came with a four-cylinder or V6 engine, depending on trim option. These engines delivered between 173 and 235 horsepower and gave the Sebring a towing capacity of 1,000 to 2,000 pounds total, varying by engine type. The various Sebring models deliver 16 to 21 mpg in the city and 26 to 30 mpg in highway traffic. Seating capacity varies only slightly, with the convertible seating four people and the sedan seating five. During its production run, the Sebring was manufactured in Toluca, Mexico; Normal, Illinois; and Sterling Heights, Michigan.
The 1995 Sebring was only available in a coupe model, as the convertible and four-door sedan did not debut until 1996 and 2001, respectively. The latter two models were the only ones available at the end of the Sebring's production run, as the coupe was discontinued after 2005. Various trim level options came and went over the years and the convertible model underwent an overhaul in 2008, offering a powered hard top as well as the standard vinyl and cloth tops. Beginning with the 2008 model year, the Sebring also featured the MyGIG Multimedia Infotainment System, an optional feature that enabled drivers to store up to 20 GB of movies, music, and pictures.
There are two trim options on the 2010 Sebring sedan: the Touring and Limited. The convertible models were also available in those trim levels, as well as the LX trim. The Touring sedan included features such as keyless entry, a theft deterrent system, and one year of Sirius satellite radio at no charge. The Limited sedan came with the same features as the Limited, as well as heated front seats, automatic headlights, and tire pressure monitoring. The LX and Touring convertibles offered much of the same equipment as the Touring sedan. The Limited convertible model added a remote start, power top, window controls on the key fob, and a universal garage door opener.
The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety granted its Top Safety Pick Award" to the 2010 Chrysler Sebring. This award is given based on crash testing, with the vehicle performing best overall in the tests receiving the honor. The 2010 Sebring also received a five-star rating, the highest possible, in front-end crash testing.
