The massive model blitz spread over the 2005 Chrysler Sebring line already been noted, and it's difficult not to return to it again and again. With the Sebring Convertible, there are four trim levels from which to choose: the Base model, GTC, Touring and Limited Editions.

Interior Features
The two-door 2005 Chrysler Sebring convertible has room for five passengers comfortably, though let's face it, two is the perfect Convertible number for the drive-in, if you can find one, or the trip along a coast highway. Inside, it's all about practicality with style that hasn't been much meddled with since last year. The GTC model features a sporty instrument cluster and a unique patterned instrument panel bezel with GTC badging. The gauges include speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip odometer, fuel level and coolant temperature.

In the up-level Touring and Limited models you'll find leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, a 6-way power driver seat, a trip computer, a compass and an outside-temperature indicator. Options available for the Sebring convertible include heated front seats (Touring and Limited) a navigation system and high-end Infinity Audio, standard on the Limited and optional for the rest.

Exterior Features
The power-closing top of the 2005 Chrysler Sebring convertible is easy to use and fast. Double insulated, it has enough thickness to protect you from the elements and keep you warm inside but it is still a simple push of a button and a couple of levers to lock it closed. The convertible has a unique body design within the Sebring family. Other exterior features include different wheel and tire choices, fog lights (Touring and Limited) and a rear spoiler on the GTC Edition, a slightly sportier model of the three.

Like other Sebring models, the Convertible has two engine choices, shared with the longer and larger Sedan, resulting in a slightly different performance profile. The first, found in Base models, is a 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder dohc with 150 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 167 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. The second, powering the rest of the line, is a 2.7-liter V6 that will move you with 200 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 190 lb-ft of torque at 4850 rpm. 4-speed automatic transmission is standard to produce 21/28 mpg (city/hwy).

The Sebring is a front-wheel drive vehicle. A fully-independent short/long-arm double wishbone suspension provides a flat ride. This suspension configuration combines with the Sebring's stiff structure and refined steering to give drivers a highly responsive ride but it varies according to the model choice, a feature that demonstrates the extent of the differences between these cars. The Base has standard Sebring suspension, as described above, the GTC has a firmer sport suspension, while the Touring and Limited editions feature the Touring suspension with reduced understeer and a smoother long-distance ride.

Next Generation multistage driver and front passenger airbags inflate with forces appropriate to the severity of impact.. This is enhanced by traction control and antilock brakes (standard on Limited and optional on other models). Theft-deterrent and GPS navigation systems are also available to add to security for Sebring drivers and occupants.
