The evolution of the reliable Chrysler Sebring into the 200 is set to take a more radical step with the release of a new restyled 200 in the first quarter of 2014.
That was the news confirmed by Chrysler Senior Vice President of Design Ralph Gilles recently, who revealed some details about the new model that generated considerable interest for fans of mid-size sedans and convertibles.
Most striking about the 2014 200, which should debut at motor shows this year, is its eye-watering 38mpg fuel economy, which comes in no small part thanks to a nine speed transmission. This is an 8mpg increase on the 2012 200, and should make the car a real contender in its class as one of the most economic options out there. Engine-wise, the new model is expected to stick with four cylinders and drop the six cylinder version. However the other major development could well be in styling and design, with the Vice President suggesting a cutting-edge look would replace the rather bland shape of the first 200.
Of course that car evolved directly from the successful Chrysler Sebring, which in its first incarnation came out in the mid-nineties and did rather well for the American carmaker. With coupe and convertible versions (a choice the 2014 200 is expected to maintain) the Sebring handled well especially on open roads, and developed a reputation as a solid motor. Certainly it did well enough for the company to bring out subsequent generations, including bringing the Sebring to the European market in the early 2000s.

Now I'm sure there are people out there that have domestics and say "What about our cars?" Well frankly I'm not very convinced that domestics can turn very well. That being said, I'm no drift junkie.
So my current vehicle is a 2000 Acura Integra and I hate it. The engine sucks, the whole car is heavy, wrong wheel drive, etc etc. Therefore I'm looking for a car that is more capable all-around in terms of performance. The cars I'm looking at right now are these... (sorted from most to least wanted)
Toyota MR2 Spyder
BMW M3 (older series because I'm not rich)
The reason why the S2000 and M3 are on the bottom is...
