2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible Priced at $26,445

2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible

The Chrysler 200 convertible will go on sale for $26,445, excluding a $750 destination charge, when it goes on sale this spring.

That makes the convertible more than $1,000 cheaper than the lackluster 2010 Chrysler Sebring convertible, which started at $27,850. Both of those starting prices are for the cloth-top models. The 200 convertible will be available in Touring, Limited and S trims (late availability for the S).

The base trim comes pretty well equipped, including a 173-horsepower four-cylinder, six-speed automatic transmission, automatic climate controls, 17-inch alloy wheels, six-way power driver’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated controls and cruise control. Stepping up to a Limited model ($31,240) gets you the new 283-hp, 3.6-liter V-6, 18-inch wheels, fog lamps, Bluetooth connectivity, leather upholstery and a touch-screen multimedia system with 30 gigabytes of storage.

Both trims come with a vinyl top; a hardtop is available on the Limited and S trims. Speaking of the S, it will feature more chrome and better interior appointments. A six-speed dual-clutch transmission will come to the four-cylinder Touring models later this year.

This Chrysler 200 is the most affordable mainstream midsize convertible on the market, which is admittedly a pretty sparse segment now that the Toyota Camry Solara is gone. Coming close are the Ford Mustang at $27,145 and the Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder at $27,999, but both offer far less cargo and passenger volume compared with the Chrysler.

The latest styling and dynamic updates, along with added features, could make the 200 convertible a respectable player in this small segment.

I think a 300 convertable would look pretty sweet. At least it would have more style and personality than the 200's and Seabrings. Come on Chrysler and get on it!

Umm, Matt have you seen the new 300? It looks almost like the 200 in the front.


Anyway...
They should make the V6 available on the Base model or make the 4cyl more fuel efficient with a 6 or 7 speed transmission.

Looking straight on you're right, but when you see a car driving by you see the profile. The 300 has a much more agressive profile that I think would look better as a convertable than the 200.
