2011 Chrysler 200S Sedan And Convertible: NY Auto Show Live Photos

Follow Bengt

Chrysler has officially pulled the wraps off its new 200 S Convertible and Convertible variants, which add a more upscale look and feel to the automaker's mid-size lineup.

And appropriately so, it happened in New York, as the automaker had said that the S gets an "entirely different appearance and attitude," which "may be 'imported from Detroit,' but it's definitely at home on Park Avenue."

Essentially, as MotorAuthority editor Nelson Ireson wrote earlier this week, when Chrysler released information and a few photos in advance of their debut, what that amounts to is that it takes a whole lot of "chrome and leather lipstick" to turn a standard V-6 Chrysler 200 into a Chrysler 200 S.

With a unique front grille, body-color mirrors and door handles, unique alloy wheels, black-background headlamps, a perforated leather steering wheel, heated front seats with suede inserts and embroidered headrests, a black headliner, and an upgraded Boston Acoustics sound system, it's all about the details, and there are plenty of them to study.

Do these dressed-up 200 S models look worth their slightly higher prices? Take a look at the above galleries and let us know what you think, then check out all the rest of our New York auto show coverage.

  1. Sorry, under all that chrome and leather, it's still a Sebring.

  2. I suppose these are variants of the higher end interiors required for these cars to be marketed as Lancias, if that bad idea takes hold. The cars are probably much improved with a "bespoke" interior, but it does raise that question about lipstick and pigs......how much is enough?

  3. HAHA @adamk! That's what that car was called! I was thinking that it looked strikingly similar to a car I had seen before. It looks like an updated version of the Sebring.

  4. CONGRADULATIONS !!!, CHRYSLER. The 2011 lineup is fantastic. I can see nothing but success for your future.
