The one vehicle in Chrysler’s shrinking lineup in most need of a makeover is the Sebring midsize sedan. From day one of its last redesign in 2007, it never seriously challenged the class leaders. For 2011, the car has been overhauled and gets a new name: 200. But it’s not as “all-new” as it should be. The 200 arrives at dealerships in December.
The changes move the car in the right direction and make it competitive in certain areas for the first time. The car’s platform, however, remains a limiting factor, preventing some of the changes this car still needs — especially on the inside.
