A bunch of official pictures of the Chrysler 200 Convertible have hit the web sooner than expected, reviving the bad memories of the Sebring even more than the 200 coupe! But that doesn’t matter becasue as we it’s just a fling for Chrysler before an all-new model arrives, right?! But that doesn’t end there.
The 200 is a temporarily car to fill a gap in the market until Chrysler can come up with a more decent car, but according to Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne who spoke to the media at the recent Detroit Motor Show this car – both coupe and convertible versions – will be imported to Europe, rebadged as Lancia and will be sold through Fiat network. So it’s here to stay! They are even talking about the Flavia names for the rebadged Lancia.
Apart from the ugly folding roof, the rest of the 200 is pretty much the same as the coupe which means it’ll get either a brilliant Pentastar V6 or a not-so-good four-banger. One may also think that the convertible is tad heavier due to the structural work necessary for turning a coupe into a convertible.
