High Gear Media recently spent some quality time with the Chrysler 200 sedan and convertible during the first media drive in San Diego, revealing it's more than lipstick on the pig that was the Sebring, but still not quite a match for the competition from Subaru, Ford, or Hyundai. Today, Chrysler put a price on the convertible version of the 2011 200, and it's a bit higher than you might expect.
The entry-level Touring model starts from $26,445, sure, but the step up to the Limited model will cost you $31,240, while the in-house custom S is yet to be priced, but sure to be even pricier. Considering the Fusion, Legacy, and Sonata don't offer convertible versions, though, perhaps it's a premium some will be willing to pay to stay in the segment. The $5,000-$6,000 premium over the price of an equivalent 200 sedan will require some justification to the buyer's significant other, too.
