3rd November, 2006

Chrysler Sebring

It may not be the most attractive of designs, but the mid-size Chrysler Sebring sedan is coming to Australia for a mid-2007 release. This news, which was announced yesterday by Chrysler, has been expected since the model was revealed in June. That news is here.

The Chrysler Sebring combines high-levels of safety and reliability, performance and fuel efficiency.

The new Chrysler Sebring will offer a choice of three engines in Australia. Standard is a 2.4-litre petrol engine with dual variable valve timing (VVT). Also available will be a state-of-the-art 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine and at a later stage a 2.7-litre V6 petrol engine.

The Chrysler Sebring includes a host of new technology and features, ranging from a cutting-edge information, entertainment and communication navigation audio system to a heated/cooled front cupholder for keeping hot beverages hot and cool beverages cool. A long list of safety systems includes an Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), advanced multi-stage front air bags, side-curtain airbags and front-seat-mounted side airbags.

Pricing and model line-up for the Chrysler Sebring will be confirmed closer to launch.


Inspired by the 2003 Chrysler Airflite concept vehicle that was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, the all-new Chrysler Sebring’s elegant lines evoke the exterior styling features of the Chrysler vehicle, bringing the Chrysler brand’s expressive design attributes to the mid-size segment.

Chrysler Sebring features the distinctive face of the Chrysler brand, with the Chrysler signature grille, a uniquely sculptured bonnet, large, distinctive quad headlamps and fog lamps.

Sebring has a profile which features a long bonnet, chrome beltline moulding and long roofline. High-gloss black appliqués on the B-pillars enhance the length of the Sebring’s greenhouse. Sculptured character lines running along the body accentuate Sebring’s stance.

The expressive character of the vehicle continues at the rear where Sebring’s wide tail lamps are integrated into both the rear quarters and extend into the boot lid for visual impact.

World-class craftsmanship

The unique Sebring exterior styling also runs through the vehicle’s interior, which features a modern appearance with a focus on quality, detail and execution.

Standard 60/40 fold-flat rear seats make room for more gear and an available fold-flat passenger seat provides a table-like surface that enhances the versatility of Sebring’s interior.

Purposeful technology

In addition to Chrysler Sebring’s design and elegant use of materials, this all-new sedan brings new levels of function and technology to the mid-size car segment.
