2011 Chrsyler Sebring Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, Chrysler has updated the Sebring for 2011 with improved interior materials and fit and finish, including a new instrument panel cluster. Active head restraints have also been added to the Sebring. If seeking an example of how things went wrong for Chrysler while under the control of Daimler, the Sebring is a prime example. A decade ago, the Sebring convertible and the Cirrus sedan were handsome and capable cars. Following DaimlerChryslers management, the midsized cars were viciously cost cut. What’s more, the formerly esteemed design crew was passed off to Trevor Creed, an unimaginative, uncreative “yes-man.”
Now Chrysler is led by Sergio Marchionne; what is in the company’s future now? Innovation and novel designs are in the future. Chrysler has been implementing midcycle alterations for its US entry model; this is a vita segment for the car’s debut since 2007.
The Sebring is slated for a new exterior and interior design. In addition, the carmaker will be giving the car brand new dynamics. For the time being, car seekers can get the Sebring at hefty discounts, and deals are being offered on the leftover 2010 Sebring convertibles and sedans. No doubt, discounts will prove steep. For the car seeker on a shoestring budget, the soon to be outmoded Sebrings are ideal.
For the 2011 model, Chrysler smoothed out the hood strakes that were designed to become part of the brand’s “design language.” The convertible is available with a conventional soft top or a folding metal hardtop. The 2011 model Sebring benefits from a new instrument panel cluster and active head restraints. Tortoise shell accents cribbed from the 300 are available, and the convertible has been designed for optimum rear seat space.
Ride and handling for are about average for cars in this segment, though Sebring falls short in terms of refinement. You’ll find marginally acceptable levels of cowl shake in the convertible. Horsepower is 173 for the four-cylinder and 186 for the DOHC 2.7-liter V-6, which is available only in the convertible. The 3.5-liter makes 235 horsepower.
Both the sedan and convertible have advanced multi-stage airbags, electronic stability control and interior head impact protection. The convertible adds front-seat mounted side airbags, while the sedan has supplemental side curtain airbags and brake assist.
