2010 Chrysler Sebring Interior

This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.

Reviewers find serious panel gaps and cheap plastics throughout the Sebring. One highlight is the available Yes Essentials fabric, which many reviewers praise for being stain-resistant and pleasant to look at. The entertainment system also earns some compliments.

  • "Gauges are simple, though difficult to read at night. Climate controls are set too low for quick adjustment." -- Consumer Guide
  • "Touching it does not give the sense of quality of an Accord or a Camry." -- AutoWeek
  • "The design of the cabin is clean and ergonomically sound, but interior plastics are behind the curve for this price range." -- Edmunds
  • "Clean if unremarkable, the Sebring's cabin is defined by a simple control layout, comfortable front seats and mediocre materials." -- Carz Unlimited
  • "In between the base cloth and available leather seating, the Sebring offers an exceptionally stain-resistant seat fabric called YES Essentials." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Shoppers also might like the YES Essentials seat fabric that's offered as an option in the base Sebring and standard on the Touring model. It's stain-, fade- and even odor-resistant, according to Chrysler. I think it looks attractive, is pleasant to rest on-with none of the extreme hot and cold surfaces of leather-and can even be fitted over optional heated seats." -- MSN

Seating

Reviewers say the front seats of the 2010 Sebring are adequately comfortable, and a stain-proof fabric offered on Touring and Limited editions is appreciated. But few think the back seat is roomy enough.

  • "The seats are narrow; the front row is too intimate with two people seated inside. The back is also narrow with limited hip and elbow room, but head room and leg room is plentiful, thanks to a wide opening under the front row seats. In essence, this may be the perfect car for tall, skinny drivers or those with longer than average legs, while wide shoppers may find the Sebring to be a little tight." -- Autoweb
  • "The seats were comfortable." -- About.com
  • "The rear seat is spacious enough to accommodate a pair of adults, although the seat-bottom cushion is a bit too low for comfort and the outboard head restraints are nonadjustable." -- Carz Unlimited
  • "There's ample stretch room front and rear and above-average head room in back, though knee room there will be tight if the folks upfront are tall." -- Chicago Tribune

Interior Features

The ergonomic layout of the 2010 Sebring is up to class standards, according to most reviewers. Its available equipment list is extensive, and includes an optional 30-gigabyte infotainment system that some reviewers love. But many complain of hard plastics and poor build quality that keep the Sebring from being truly competitive. The instrument cluster has been redesigned for 2010, but few reviewers have tested the car with its new gauges. 

  • "Sebring's cabin materials are more sturdy than rich and feel notably down market of most midsize rivals." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The two-tone interior has a modern, upscale look. Most controls are easily reached and operated." -- MSN
  • "The highlight of the Sebring's optional equipment list is the comprehensive MyGIG navigation, entertainment and communication system." -- Kelley Blue Book

Cargo

In the midsize class, the Sebring's 13.6-cubic-foot trunk is considered small.

  • "Partially compensating for the Sebring's small 13.6-cubic-foot trunk is the ability to fold down both the 60/40-split rear seat and the front passenger seat." -- Carz Unlimited
  • "Short decklid and high liftover limit utility of the small but usefully shaped trunk." -- Consumer Guide
