Let’s face it, the Chrysler 200, essentially a refreshed Sebring, has few fans. Although a fairly competent car in its own right, it flounders when compared to other segment players like the Hyundai Sonata and Ford Fusion. However, the 200 covertible, although almost adentical to the normal 200, is literally in a class of its own. With virtually no direct competition to compare with, the convertible is deemed a good car.
Chrysler’s new CEO, Sergio Marchionne, has taken notice and plans to bring the 200 convertible to Europe as the Lancia Flavia cabriolet. That’s good news for North American travelers who crave a taste of Americana while visiting Europe.
