“Sebring [is] at the bottom of the class”
Car and Driver

If you’re willing to deal with rather low standards of refinement and some substandard materials inside, the 2010 Chrysler Sebring is reasonably comfortable.

Car and Driver says the Sebring sedan has a "spacious interior." Space, however, doesn't equal room inside its doors: "Though the Sebring's 102.5-cubic-foot cabin is larger than both the Toyota Camry's and Ford Fusion's, it feels smaller, especially in front," Cars.com adds. "Not helping matters is the cloth seat's narrow bottom cushion, whose side bolsters squeeze front occupants' thighs." Edmunds asserts that "cabin space is generally on par with the rest of the midsize car class, as the Sebring sedan offers respectable amounts of headroom and legroom."

The 2010 Chrysler Sebring sedan scores reasonably well for backseat space. “The 60/40-split, folding rear seat is on the firm side, but it's nonetheless comfortable," Cars.com says. "Legroom for adults is acceptable, but there's not a lot of extra space to let your legs roam." The backseats fold forward and open up to the trunk; the front passenger seat also folds flat for loading long objects inside the car for extra storage, but "the Sebring's 13.6-cubic-foot trunk is on the small side," according to Cars.com.

ConsumerGuide reports "cabin materials are more sturdy than rich and feel notably down market of most midsize rivals." Those "cut-rate" materials put the Sebring in the "basement among midsize family cars," Edmunds attests. While "cabin design is ergonomically sound," Edmunds observes, "the quality of interior plastics is poor for this price range." Cars.com feels that "most trim pieces fit together snugly, but the turn signal stalk and directionally adjustable LED map lights feel cheap."

Edmunds says, "Ride quality is among the Sebring's strong points, as it proves both comfortable and composed at freeway speeds.” Cars.com has a lot of positive remarks about the ride: "The Touring model...had a considerably softer ride than most midsize competitors. However, while those competitors quickly settle themselves after hitting a big dip in the road, the Sebring unfortunately bobs up and down a few times; it's the closest thing you'll find to a Lincoln Town Car in this class. At highway speeds, that floatiness disappears and the car morphs into a poised cruiser."

In the Chrysler Sebring Convertible, Car and Driver is "impressed by the interior materials," but most reviewers feel the Sebring Convertible’s trim leaves a lot to be desired. Edmunds.com describes materials as "below average, with cheap plastics and hard surfaces."

The mismatched, plasticky interior is the Sebring Convertible’s bigger problem, in the opinion of TheCarConnection.com’s editors. For a car that can exceed $35,000, the trim and finishes in the Convertible are outdone by many cars with a $20,000 price tag.

Conclusion

The 2010 Chrysler Sebring has a spacious interior, but you won’t find it meeting modern standards for quality or refinement.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
