2012 Chrysler 200 Convertible – Click above for high-res image gallery

Chrysler is set to debut the 2012 200 Convertible at the New York Auto Show in March, but through the magic of the Interwebs, the first crop of official images has already leaked out. The new 200 sedan isn't a bad-looking car, and while the convertible's design isn't the most attractive creation (that rear end still looks plenty awkward), it's certainly better than the outgoing Sebring.

Aside from the deletion of a fixed roof, expect the Chrysler 200 Convertible to be largely the same as its sedan counterpart, with interior refinement and engine choices all being carried over. This means that both the 2.4-liter inline-four and 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 should be underhood, and the end result is a cabriolet that, while better than the model it replaces, certainly won't take your breath away.

      It's not bad looking... as long as the top stays stowed away.

      They did a much better job with the 200 sedan (relatively speaking, of course), but I think the sebring convertible's design was irrecoverable; so i commend them for trying.

      Just make sure you get the next generation right, Chrysler.

      Change the name, redo the nose, change out the logos...

      Its still a boring ass Sebring.

      Who are the people buying these things besides Michael Scott?

      Remember they only had limited time and budget to work on.

      I don't get why some people here think this convertible is a fail.

      Which other model comes in this size, bang for the buck, comparable to the 200C?

      The only convertible I ever owned was a 63 Plymouth Fury with a 440, 4 barrel carb,dual points and posi-traction.I had to call a lock smith once because I locked my keys in the car and i needed to put the top up because it was going to rain.
      Sorry just couldn't resist the old joke.

      So groundbreaking and innovative!

      Ladies and gentlemen, the new and improved Chrysler!

        Again, Chrysler said they weren't going to design a totally new car in their future plans. Go research those plans before making the assumption that Chrysler was trying to pull this off as a new model.

      I like it, I have always enjoyed the Sebring convertible because it was a "poor man's" convertible.

      Not bad for the disaster that they had to work with. Hopefully this sets up an even better next-model, as Chrysler had been doing well for a long time with the 4 seat convertibles.

      Would like to see them do well again, as they had been a good source for relatively inexpensive and fairly reliable convertibles. Granted, most found homes as rentals in places like Hawaii, but they wouldn't sell up in Alaska anyway. ;)

        except for the 2007-2010 era....daimler gave 85% less interior budget...my dad owned a 2001 serbring coupe...it's a decent car by all means...well, better material and finish than 07...
