1998 Chrysler Cirrus

In 1998, Chrysler dropped the lower LX trim level from the Cirrus lineup.  It would be unavailable until 2000.  With just the LXi remaining, buyers could expect a higher priced entry point for the Cirrus sedan.  With just one model in production, Chrysler gave the LXi a lot of attention with respect to upgrades.  The new Cirrus added power windows, locks, and mirrors as standard equipment.  A tilt steering wheel and seat-sensitive deactivating airbags were also included. Several new colors became available.
The Cirrus has bulked up by 200 pounds, without any significant impact on fuel economy.  The mid size sedan received an EPA rating of 19/28 mpg.  The standard 2.5 liter V-6 made 168 horsepower, and patiently sent the Cirrus from 0 to 60 mph in ten seconds.  While the Cirrus could not be marketed as a sports sedan, the suspension was tuned rather firm for better handling and road response.
