Yeah, I test drove the Chrysler 200 Convertible in the winter. No, I didn’t put the top down. However, I did learn a really important thing about this car by driving it in the winter: It’s warm. The other thing I learned: It’s actually really quiet with the top up while driving on the highway. A lot of people give the 200 a bad rap, but I’m not going to be one of them. The styling is definitely reminiscent of the old Sebring, but the finishing touches are nicer and the ride is much more refined. Of course, I should point out that the test car did have the 3.6-liter, V-6 engine that delivers 283 horsepower. I have yet to drive the 4-cylinder model.
Base price: $27,100 (4-cyl); $32,095 (6-cyl)
Cargo volume: 13.3 cubic-feet (with the top up)
