Chrysler Sebring makes debut in London
18 July 2006

Chrysler has revealed the new Sebring, which received its world debut at the British motor show today.

The Sebring is a Mondeo rival, which goes on sale in right-hand drive in the first half of next year. Launch engines include 2.0 and 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrols and a 2.0-litre turbodiesel. A 2.7-litre V6 will be available at a later date.

Expect the Sebring to undercut the Mondeo, which starts at £15,995, and also to come loaded with kit. Equipment available on the Sebring includes an infotainment system with sat-nav, ESP, curtain airbags and optional seat-mounted airbags. The most novel item, however, is a heated/cooled front cupholder for keeping hot beverages hot and cool drinks cool.

The new Chrysler will be available in two models, the Touring (which is not an estate) and Limited, from the first half of 2007.
