2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible vs. Its Competition

2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The Ford Mustang is strictly a soft-top affair, but its retro looks are spot-on perfect and the rear seats are usable--and there’s no denying the visceral appeal of its V-8 engine and 1,000-watt audio system.

The Volkswagen Eos is TheCarConnection.com’s favorite four-seat hardtop convertible; its well-detailed interior and V-6 performance are only let down slightly by conservative looks.

The four-seat Pontiac G6 Convertible is the Sebring Convertible’s nearest colleague, and markedly better-looking.

Quick Specs
7.0
The 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible takes two steps back in styling and no steps forward in handling or performance.
8.4
Nostalgia is still a big part of the appeal, but the 2010 Ford Mustang is now every bit a modern, refined sport coupe.
6.8
The 2009 Pontiac G6 models have appealing styling inside and out, but they fail to wow in most other respects.
8.2
The 2009 Volkswagen Eos isn't sexy, and it's one of the most practical choices among convertibles and there's a lot to like.
