The 2009 Chrysler Sebring LX is the base sedan trim for this model. The LX is powered by a 2.4-liter, 173-hp inline four mated to a four-speed automatic and gets 21 city/30 highway mpg. The LX features air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, doors, and locks, a 60/40-split rear seat, a four-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo with auxiliary input jack, and 16-inch steel wheels.
The 2009 Chrysler Sebring LX Convertible serves as the base two-door convertible trim, just as the LX does for the Sebring four-door sedan, but this is more than just an LX sedan with a soft top. The LX Convertible does share the LX's 2.4-liter I4 engine and four-speed transmission (20 city/29 highway mpg). The LX Convertible also features a six-speaker AM/FM/MP3/DVD entertainment system with in-dash 6-CD changer and one year of Sirius Satellite Radio, low-back cloth front seats, a six-way power driver’s seat with manual lumbar support, Sentry Key theft-deterrent system, keyless entry, and 16-inch steel wheels with P215/65R16 BSW all-season tires.
At the top of the Sebring hard-top sedan line is the 2009 Chrysler Sebring Limited, which shares a drivetrain with the LX and the Touring, but adds elsewhere. The upgrades include tortoise-shell finish for the instrument panel and steering wheel, electroluminescent gauges, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, heated front seats with leather trim, an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, a fold-flat passenger seat for more cargo capacity, and automatic headlamps.
The 2009 Chrysler Sebring Limited Convertible delivers 235 horsepower with its 3.5-liter, 24-valve, high-output V6, which is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and gets 16 city/27 highway mpg. The Limited Convertible delivers features as well, with its leather-trimmed, heated power front seats, tortoise-shell finish on the instrument panel and steering wheel, air conditioning, universal garage door opener, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, six Boston Acoustics speakers, remote start, dual exhaust, and 18-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels with P215/55R18 BSW all-season touring tires.
The 2009 Chrysler Sebring Touring shares a drivetrain with the base LX as well as features like cruise control, air conditioning, and full power accessories. The Touring adds a power driver's seat, upgraded cloth upholstery, and 17-inch steel wheels, and upgrades the stereo with two additional speakers and an in-dash 6-CD changer. The Touring also offers more optional features, including a sunroof, a rear-seat entertainment system, and a navigation system.
The 2009 Chrysler Sebring Touring Convertible gets a power upgrade from the LX with a 2.7-liter V6 mated to a four-speed automatic transmission that gets 18 city/26 highway mpg. The Touring Convertible also upgrades or adds to the LX's features with a power convertible top with key fob, heated power mirrors, 17-inch aluminum wheels with P215/60R17 BSW all-season tires, an electroluminescent instrument cluster, satin silver interior accents, stain-repellent seating cloth, and a cushioned center console/armrest.
