The Chrysler Group is set to inspire the D segment with the all-new Chrysler Sebring saloon, which has its motor show world premiere tomorrow (Tuesday 18 July) in London.

The Chrysler Sebring builds on the winning formula begun with the award-winning Chrysler 300C in the E-segment, combining eye-catching design with interior craftsmanship, high levels of reliability and durability, customer-focussed technology and safety features, brisk performance and fuel efficiency, all at good value for money.

The new Chrysler Sebring will offer a choice of four engines in Europe. Standard is a 2.0-litre petrol World Engine with dual variable valve timing (VVT), and available are a 2.4-litre petrol World Engine with dual VVT and a modern 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine. Available at a later stage in Europe will be an enhanced 2.7-litre V-6 petrol engine.

Chrysler Sebring includes a host of new technology and features, ranging from a cutting-edge information, entertainment and communication navigation audio system to a heated/cooled front cupholder for keeping hot beverages hot and cool beverages cool. A long list of safety systems includes an Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), side-curtain airbags and available front-seat-mounted side airbags.

"The all-new Chrysler Sebring sustains our momentum by bringing to market a compelling vehicle that addresses the needs and wants of many European D-segment buyers," said Thomas Hausch, Executive Director of International Sales and Marketing, Chrysler Group. "The new Chrysler Sebring is the first Chrysler Group D-segment vehicle not only to offer a diesel powertrain, but also right-hand drive availability, which allows us to expand our customer reach around the globe."

The new Sebring is available outside North America in two models, Chrysler Sebring Touring and Chrysler Sebring Limited, and will arrive to European dealerships in the first half of 2007.
