Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

Vehicle Overview The Sebring is available as a four-door sedan or a two-door convertible with a retractable hardtop or traditional soft-top. Competitors of the sedan include the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion, while the convertible goes head-to-head with the Pontiac G6, Volkswagen Eos and Toyota Camry Solara convertibles. Both Sebrings are available in base LX, Touring and Limited trim levels, and also share engine options.
New for 2009 A few luxury interior features are added to the trim levels for 2009, and a power top is no longer standard on the base model convertible.
Exterior Large C-pillars on the sedan join a stubby trunk. 17-inch steel wheels are standard; seventeen- and 18-inch alloy wheels are optional. At 190.6 inches long, the Sebring sedan is roughly the same length as the Camry, Accord and Fusion. Its height is 59 inches, exceeding all three competitors by more than an inch. The convertible's front end is the same as the sedan's, featuring hood strakes, a grille and headlights reminiscent of the Crossfire roadster. Choosing the convertible over the sedan adds about 400 pounds to the car's curb weight, and the convertible roof stows beneath a hard tonneau cover.
Standard 16-inch steel wheels
Optional alloy wheels in 17 and 18 inches
18-inch chromed aluminum wheels standard on convertible Limited
Convertible can have a soft-top or a retractable hardtop
Interior Both the Sebring sedan and convertible have a simple cabin that includes three backlit instrument portals, a two-tone dashboard and an analog clock. The sedan's trunk space measures just 13.6 cubic feet. The front passenger seat has an optional fold-flat feature to accommodate longer cargo passed through the 60/40-split folding rear seat. Chrysler says two golf bags can fit in the convertible's trunk when the top is retracted. A windscreen is standard on convertible Limited models; it stands behind the front headrests to help reduce noise and turbulence commonly associated with convertibles. Opting for the Convenience Group Package on the base convertible adds a power top.
