Eos rides italy 90

For comparison’s sake, the Volkswagen Eos makes just 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of twist, yet hits 60 mph in 6.6 seconds. That’s two-tenths of a second slower than a Chevrolet Traverse. More than being good, Chrysler products are advancing into the realm of special.Despite Eminem’s best efforts, the Chrysler 200 (formerly the Sebring) remains a lone, sad reminder of the bad old days when Mopar spent a cold, lonely near-decade as Daimler’s whipping boy, then had the marrow sucked out of it by robber barons and hedge fund managers before finally being helmed by a former hardware store impresario who received 100 pennies a year in compensation. Which is a shame, because we know full well Chrysler is more than capable of making cars that handle very well.Even with the very good new Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6, the 200 Convertible gets to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds. Sure, a metal top adds weight when compared to a ragtop, we’ll grant ’em that. Again, the Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Fiat boys (and girls) are on a roll.As in, more than just being transportation, their cars make you happy. To put it in Newspeak, it’s ungreat, and therefore does the Chrysler brand no favors. People who buy the car will consider another brand when it’s time for a new car.Many times, car reviews are nothing but a tale of the tape. Turn-in is super-slow; the car feels as if it’s falling over on itself before the springs (eventually) overcorrect and send the car back the other way. The 200 is sloppy, wallowy, clumsy – basically, if you take everything you like and want dynamically from a vehicle and reverse it, you’d have yourself a Chrysler 200 Convertible.OK, the Caliber might be a worse reminder of that near and evil past, but at least Dodge is officially killing that one. Now, off the record, we’ve been assured a new C/D segment player will arrive sometimes in 2013, most likely from Italy. (The new 300 jumps to mind, especially that killer SRT8.) Oh, and the top takes about 30 seconds to go up or down. But again, just in terms of agility and handling, driving the Convertible is like driving the four-door with a spare engine and transmission shoved in its trunk.The only question left is, Viking-style funeral pyre to burn the evidence, or go all Navy Seal and just dump the carcass at sea? We suspect the Chrysler boys didn’t add firmer bushings to the Convertible version of the 200, and while we initially thought they’d (maybe) change the spring rate, after driving the folding top version, it sure doesn’t feel like it.If that were the case, numbers would damn the folding hardtop 200 all on their own. Because like the Chrysler 200 you’re entirely too fat? It’s disconcerting, and in this day and age of track-worthy SUVs, inexcusable. That much extra poundage not only kills any semblance of sportiness, but it harshes the ride, something that was actually improved when Chrysler went from Sebring to 200. ), the 200 Convertible isn’t passable as a Chrysler.Not a terrible number, but consider that the newfangled engine produces 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

But the light blue 200 convertible you see here reaffirmed our feelings that that’s two years too late. As a result, body roll, or at least perceived body roll, is atrocious.
