Chrysler Nixes Everyone's Favorite Rental Convertible

A redesigned 200 sedan will not be followed by a drop-top variant.

After unveiling the all-new Chrysler 200 at the Detroit Auto Show in January, the carmaker made clear there wouldn't be a new Dodge Avenger. In a blow to fans of the popular drop-top rental, Chrysler has now confirmed the 200 Convertible won't be offered in the lineup. Less than five percent of the 122,840 Chrysler 200 vehicles sold last year were convertibles. The additional cost of engineering a cabrio variant of the new 200 makes no business sense, with the carmaker to focus its resources on the mid-size market instead.
