Chrysler Sebring (2007-10)

Overall Rating

2 stars

Chrysler's Sebring is a medium sized saloon from the American manufacturer marketed to older drivers. Spacious with good diesel engine the Sebring has un-inspiring styling and a terrible interior.

For
  • Good level of standard equipment
  • Decent diesel engine
  • Might appeal if want to drive something a bit different from the usual options
Against
  • Bumpy ride
  • Cheap looking interior
  • Doesn't rival it's competitors
Road Test

Chrysler's attempt to compete in the popular saloon market place the Sebring is pretty un-inspiring to look at. Inside the interior is poor quality and the standard grey leather is cheap and tacky. Inside is spacious in the front with a decent sized boot. Standard equipment is good in true Chrysler tradition. Available with two petrol engines - the 2.0-litre 154bhp petrol with 5-speed manual gearbox and the 2.4-litre 167bhp petrol with automatic 4-speed gearbox. The 2.0-litre struggles with performance feeling sluggish to drive, if petrol is preferred the 2.4-litre is a better option. The diesel offering is a 2.0-litre CRD 138bhp with manual gearbox and is the best choice in the range with a good 45.6mpg and CO2 emissions of 170g/km. The ride is poor and every un-even bump in the road, both in town and at speed is felt. The Sebring is not a driver's car. ESP comes as standard and safety is covered with six airbags. Good standard level of equipment is about the best thing the Sebring offers. Chrysler have not done enough to make the Sebring compete with it's rivals and there are better saloons out there.
