2008 Chrysler Sebring vs. Its Competition

2008 Chrysler Sebring LX
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The mid-size 2008 Chrysler Sebring is an interesting choice for shoppers who like its creased and decorated body, but for TheCarConnection.com's editors, the unorthodox styling, the mediocre engine performance on mainstream editions, and the quality of its interior materials put it below the Honda Civic, the Toyota Corolla, and other larger sedans like the Ford Fusion.

Quick Specs
The 2008 Chrysler Sebring’s reasonable road manners and wealth of features are at odds with its ungainly looks and interior trim.
The 2009 Ford Fusion is a great choice for those who place their priorities on style and handling, but if interior space matters to you, look elsewhere.
The 2009 Mazda6 could easily steal sales from the traditional class leaders if non-gearheads discover it.
The 2009 Toyota Corolla has a split personality: the utilitarian base car and the slightly edgy, expensive Corolla XRS.
