In Miami a drive down the famous Collins Avenue puts you in the presence of lavish hotels and beautiful people from all corners of the world. An epicenter of style, this is a city where luxurious automobiles are openly celebrated. Armed with a keen eye for style, the members of the Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA) voted the Chrysler 200 Convertible “Best Full-size Convertible” at the third annual “Topless in Miami” Convertible Awards.
A total of 72 members of SAMA had the opportunity to drop the tops on 17 participating vehicles and provide their scores based on the following criteria:
- Convertible operation functionality
- Driving impressions
The Chrysler 200 Convertible prevailed in each of these categories, proving to the judges that craftsmanship need not be sacrificed for ample passenger volume. “The elegance and craftsmanship of the Chrysler 200 Convertible, plus room for four adults is what tipped the scale in the full-size sedan category,” said Jaime Florez, President of SAMA.
“We are truly honored that the members of SAMA have chosen the Chrysler 200 Convertible as the ‘Best Full-size Convertible’ at the third annual ‘Topless in Miami’ event,” said Saad Chehab, President and CEO – Chrysler Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “The Chrysler 200 Convertible is packed with an exceptional level of standard content, exquisite style and a dynamic, open-air driving experience, at a surprising value.”
