In bettering the Chrysler 200 for 2013, you might say the automaker has adopted a top-down strategy. Cars.com reviewer Jennifer Geiger says a European-market-inspired suspension update — available only on the soft-top convertible — improves the car's handling. The 2013 soft-top convertible is confident in tight turns, and its 3.6-liter V-6 does an honorable, if unspectacular, job in the power department. Bump absorption still needs work, however. But with a negligible price increase over 2012, small fixes go far in a narrow field of affordable midsize convertibles.
