Chrysler 200 Convertible and Dodge Avenger spied

Chrysler 200 Convertible

Glenn Paulina just caught the 2011 Dodge Avenger completely disguise-free; exterior changes are limited to the front and rear fascias, with a slimmer grille opening outfitted with Dodge’s new black-centered crosshair grille. The headlights look largely unchanged, but the front bumper gets a welcome clean-up with surface development similar to what we see on the 2012 Charger.

The new tail-lights get a new monochromatic look, with rings of LEDs tucked within. A new rear bumper gives a more polished look. Unfortunately, the Avenger apparently didn’t merit the more drastic changes applied to the Charger’s side panels, so the Avenger’s C-pillar and rear fender are left to soldier on.

We got a very quick glimpse of the interior, and, as with models like the recently unveiled Dodge Journey, the passenger compartment looks to be much improved over the current Avenger.

We also snagged our first look at the facelifted Chrysler 200 Convertible, set to enter production in February 2011. The Sebring replacement maintains the current models overall design, with the changes once again limited to the front and rear-ends. The design changes that made up the transformation from the Sebring sedan to the 200 sedan will be put into play on the rectractable hardtop version as well.
