Fiat is getting ready to stick For Sale signs on the Chrysler 200 in the European market. However, it seems only the 200 Convertible will be making the trip across the pond, where it will wear Lancia Flavia badging.

Why is the sedan stuck stateside? Fiat executives find it too costly to add a diesel option, and feel the 200 sedan won't sell well without an oil-burning powerplant under the hood. The convertible, however, is viewed as an attractive offering (in a manner of speaking) despite the gas-only powerplant.

Good news, American business travelers – you can now rent yourself a droptop Sebring 2.0 while jet-setting in Europe, too.

      The next generation 200 is being designed with a diesel from day one.

        Considering it's bound to be based on a Fiat platform - that's a no-brainer.

          Chrysler actually know how to build good cars. Daimler gets the credit for the last batch of turds that bear the Chrysler badge.

      The car is attractive. Best in-class V6. Used to be Sebring. So what. It really isn't the "same" anymore. This update is more than what Ford did with the newer Fusion/Milan. I have a friend with one. A Limited sedan in blackberry pearl with black leather. Loaded. It's nice. Get over it, Chrysler haters.

      This is the best driving and best looking convertible in it's class. Much better than the Accord convertible, the Sonata convertible, the Altima convertible or the new much hyped Subaru convertible.

        Um - I certainly hope you're being sarcastic considering those other nameplates aren't available as convertibles... Just because it's competition isn't available as a convertible doesn't mean it's a great car.

          Just another example of the Japanese building appliances for accountants.

          It also shows how risk averse the Japanese are. The new improved Chrysler 200 V6 is better than any Saab convertible ever made simply by having the Pentastar under the hood.

          At least I didn't have to haul my luggage in the back seat of the Saab with the top down like I did with the Sebring I rented a few weeks back... ...and we won't mention the interior plastics in the Sebring that would make a toddler cry if Playskool sold it.

        What hyped Subaru vert? I hope you don't mean that botched up STi sedan.

      Regardless of how improved it is over the Sebring, that is an insult to the Flavia badge.

      Lordy, lets not give the Europeans another reason to hate us by sending that over...

        The Sebring has always been quite popular at rental services here in W-Europe, I suppose this will be too.

          what's with all the negative votes all the time? not that i care but you americans really do seem to have trouble accepting other people's opinions... i am european and lots of rentals agencies here have sebrings... anything wrong with saying that? get over yourselves, merkins.. not only are many of you hopelessly ignorant, it seems many of you will go out of your way to keep it that way. achterlijke mensen..
