Chrysler 200 Convertible History


The Chrysler 200 Convertible is Chrysler’s most affordable brand-model, and is the Sebring’s successor. Its sleek two-door shape is aerodynamic, sporty, and oozes class. Buyers can choose from fabric or steel roof, and the interior is packed with impressive features such as heated seats, Bluetooth, and a premium audio system with a 6.5 inch touchscreen.

The Chrysler 200 sedan was introduced in December 2010 as a 2011 model year, and the little brother to the Chrysler 300. The Convertible version followed shortly after, becoming available for purchase in early 2011.

The name change (from Sebring to 200) has helped the automaker distance the new generation from its predecessor and more closely relate the new 200 to the 300, Chrysler’s flagship car.
