Sebring is over here, not over-sized
22 June 2006

Chrysler is renewing its attack on the European market with the new Sebring, which receives its European launch at the British motor show on 18 July, along with the new Dodge Nitro.

The Sebring is a Mondeo-sized saloon, which goes on sale in the middle of next year in right-hand drive, with either a 2.4-litre petrol or 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine. Prices have yet to be comfirmed, but expect them to be competitive.

The styling is distinctively different to the European norm, with similarities to the Crossfire coupe, especially around the bonnet and grille.

The Dodge Nitro SUV is the concept car that was unveiled at the 2005 Chicago show. The production version is due to go on sale in right-hand-drive in 2007, and is expected to closely follow the concept’s look.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
