The Chrysler 200 was known as the Sebring until a significant update brought a new name in 2011.

Choosing Your Chrysler 200
Chrysler recently unveiled an all-new 200 sedan for 2015, and we recommend waiting for the fresh design based on a sophisticated Alfa Romeo platform. If you prefer to stick with the 2014 model, however, you can expect deep discounting.
