1999 Chrysler Cirrus Overview

The Chrysler Cirrus was only available in one trim for 1999. The LXi model was once positioned as the more upscale version of the sedan, and it would return to that status with the arrival of a new LX in 2000. This LXi included a revised instrument cluster, new exterior badging, and standard chrome wheels.
The Cirrus was powered by a 2.5 liter V-6, which generated 168 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. Despite a seemingly sufficient power supply for a 3000 pound sedan, the Cirrus could not break the 10 second mark for 0-60 acceleration. Fingers were pointed at a hesitant four-speed transmission which did not offer the desired response when the pedal was pushed to the floor.

The 1999 Cirrus also featured a softer suspension. The prior system was tuned stiff for extra road-awareness and agility, but that was now abandoned in favor of a more silken and forgiving ride feel. Whatever the Cirrus lost in handling, it made up in overall ride quality. Drivers were also very satisfied with Cirrus fuel economy: rated at 19/28 mpg.
