2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible
Chrysler's customer focus groups must be the most indecisive in the industry. According to Chrysler, it's why we have both a Jeep Compass AND a Patriot,

and, apparently, why they will offer their new two-door, four-seat Sebring convertible with a vinyl, cloth or steel retractable hardtop. The Sebring has been the best-selling convertible in the U.S. market seven out of the past 11 years, so Chrysler is definitely hedging their bets with three convertible top options. Beyond the trio of tops, the Sebring also distinguishes itself with a trunk big enough to hold two golf bags with the top down, four when it's retracted. Try that with a Pontiac G6 convertible. Drivetrain and trim options will be similar to the Sebring four-door. The Sebring convertible--all three of them--should be on sale just in time for next spring's top down motoring.

Sitting uncharacteristically quiet in a corner of Chrysler's booth was the long awaited Street and Racing Technologies version of the not-so-subcompact Caliber. The only question driving enthusiasts are asking is how will 300 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque--through only the front wheels--translate to on-the-road feel?
