Lots of high-tech optional features; three convertible tops available; E85 capable in 45 states; gas mileage as high as 30 mpg
The Sebring Limited sedan stands alone this year, with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and 4-speed automatic transmission that sips fuel at 21 mpg city, 30 mpg highway. The two other Sebring sedan engines, a partial-zero emissions (PZEV) 2.4L 4-cylinder and a more powerful 3.5L V6 are available as options, as is a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Inside, Chrysler bumped the roofline up a bit for 2009, giving the cabin a more spacious feel. An 8-way power driver's seat is standard, as are heated front seats. Air conditioning is standard, with dual-zone controls as an option. Other options for the Limited sedan include a heated and cooled cup holder, remote start and power sunroof. The 6-speaker audio system plus steering wheel controls is standard, but it can be upgraded to a Boston Acoustics speaker system. The uConnect system comes standard in the Sebring Limited with Sirius satellite radio; upgrades allow access to tunes, navigation, phone and web from the touch screen.
The convertible, though, is where the Sebring design shines. The soft top is standard on the Limited, Touring, and LX, but can be upgraded to the retractable hard top with the Touring and Limited versions. The top can be dropped using the key fob, a standard feature on the Limited and Touring editions and an option for the LX.
The LX is the base model, with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. The Touring model has a 2.7L V6, and the top-of-the-line Limited has a 3.5L V6. A 4-speed auto is standard, but the Limited has an optional 6-speed AutoStick transmission available for drivers who like to have more control over the shift points. The Touring edition is also a FlexFuel vehicle, capable of running either gasoline or E85.
The standard cloth seats in both the LX and Touring editions are stain-repellant fabric. The Limited has standard leather-trimmed seats, plus tortoise-shell interior accents. Six-way power seats are standard on all three, as is cabin air filtration. Heated front seats and dual-zone climate control are standard on the feature-laden Limited and available on the Touring. The Limited also gets the wind screen behind the front seats, remote start and the heated/cooled cup holder standard, while they're all options for the Touring.
Independent suspension and ABS are standard on all Sebrings; electronic stability is available on the Limited and Touring convertibles and the sedan. The sedan also has standard tire pressure monitoring. All Sebrings have front and seat-mounted side airbags; the sedan also gets side-curtain airbags.
Chrysler has kept the convertible Sebring in all three trims for 2009 -- Limited, LX, and Touring -- but the sedan has been reduced to one model, the Limited. Chrysler also dropped the all-wheel drive option. It did lift the roof of the Sebring sedan for more head room and added standard steering-wheel-mounted stereo controls.
The Chrysler Sebring's most valuable asset is its fuel economy: this 4-door sedan gets 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway for under $25,000. The convertibles are close behind, with the powerful 3.5L V6 in the Limited convertible still getting 16 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. The convertible Sebring also offers more top options than any other, with available vinyl and cloth or painted-steel retractable tops available.
