Chrysler Sebring (1998)


Chrysler Sebring (1998)

The Sebring's roots go back to 1995 when Chrysler released the Cirrus and Stratus sedans to replace their ageing A-body cars. A year on they went one further by replacing their Le Baron top-selling drop-top with the new Sebring. While the sheet metal was all-new, the Sebring convertible's chassis and suspension came from the Cirrus and Stratus, which meant unitary construction and double wishbones up front plus a complex rear wishbone arrangement with trailing arms. The convertible got uprated springs and shocks plus 6.5x16-inch (165x406mm) alloys and 215/55 tyres, so the handling was top notch and made the car dynamic to drive as well as in looks. The V6 from Mitsubishi, while smooth and refined, had much weight to pull around. The car was more a cruiser than sports machine. Luxury and refinement made the Sebring America's best-selling convertible.
