Styling Changes: More Effective than on the Sedan

Seeing it in the metal for the first time, we formed our initial reaction that the 200’s new front and rear styling improve the convertible’s appearance even more than the sedan’s, the latter still stuck with the Sebring’s awkward greenhouse and stubby trunk. Particularly with the top down, the convertible’s body—3.1 inches longer than the sedan’s—conveys the elegance of the first-generation Sebring convertible, sold from 1996 through 2000. Kudos to the design team for somehow making the Sebring’s scalloped door and quarter-panels look rather natural on the 200. New 17- and 18-inch wheel designs further support the car’s upward image trajectory, as do the Audi-esque LED accents in the front headlamps. And if it looks lower, that’s because it is, by 0.5 inch in front and 0.2 at the rear.
