The 2010 Chrysler Sebring doesn’t wow in terms of standard features, but if you’re willing to spend a little more money, there are some truly class-exclusive features in these value-priced mid-size vehicles. The Convertible is offered in three trims—LX, LXI, and Limited—while the Sebring sedan lineup now has been whittled down to a single Limited trim. The base LX Convertible is strictly for the rental-car crowd, but the LXI offers bigger 17-inch wheels and some upgraded trim inside that makes it seem less bargain-basement. On the Limited Convertible, a leather interior, automatic climate control, and Boston Acoustics sound are included, but even then the price has already passed the $35,000 mark.
A six-disc CD changer is standard on all models, as is Sirius Satellite Radio. Other standout features include an optional heated/cooled front cup holder (standard on the Limited trim) that can warm beverages to 140 degrees or chill them to a near-freezing 35 degrees.
Edmunds reports that "the Sebring's lengthy options list available on the Touring and Limited models includes heated front seats, Bluetooth (known as UConnect), heated/cooled front cupholders and remote start."
Kelley Blue Book likes the Sebring's "rear-seat DVD entertainment system, stand-alone Bluetooth cell phone connectivity, heated and cooled cup holder, heated front seats, leather seats and a power glass sun roof." Motor Trend approves highly of the Sebring's audio system: "The speakers supply crisp highs and great bass response, making for one of the best stock stereos in its class." Autoblog also appreciates the audio and navigation systems in the Chrysler Sebring, remarking, "The sound quality is as good as any in this price range, and the nav screen was bright and simple to use." MyRide.com agrees with most reviews: "the Sebring's available technology is as good as or better than anything in the class."
