2009 Chrysler Sebring vs. Its Competition

2009 Chrysler Sebring LX

The Ford Fusion and the Mazda6 are both sportier-feeling rivals to the Sebring, and they perform much better in nearly every way.

The Fusion is a bit larger than the Sebring, while the Mazda6 may handle more in tune with some drivers' tastes and has a distinctive new look and feel that’s more luxurious.

Surprisingly, the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla might compete more at the four-cylinder level with the Sebring than the Accord and Camry.

The Honda and Toyota options shine for quality and dependability.
