The redesigned Chrysler Sebring convertible will be available in two versions: soft top and hard top (like the CC Peugeots or SLK.) Both tops will be supplied by german manufacutrer Karmann GMbH

The Sebring convertible, which arrives in 2007 as a 2008 model, is an important vehicle for Chrysler.

For several years, the Sebring has run neck and neck with the Ford Mustang in the U.S. convertible market. Ford Motor Co. offers the Mustang convertible only with a soft top. So the Sebring will have the advantage o f the hard top on its side

For the first four months of 2006, the Sebring convertible trails its Mustang rival 12,914 to 16,402 in U.S. sales, according to the Power Information Network.

"Sebring is a very popular, very profitable product for Chrysler," says John Wolkonowicz, an analyst for Global Insight in Lexington, Mass. "It’s worth spending money to do something new."
