With its distinct styling, one-of-a-kind versatility, best-in-class roominess and unmatched comfort, the new Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible represents a unique offering to the soft-top customer.

"Our engineers wanted to make the PT Cruiser Convertible a convertible that you can actually do things with," said Larry Lyons, Vice President - Small Vehicle Product Team Engineering. "Nine different seat configurations and a pass-through boot opening with enough room to store two golf bags make the car more versatile than its competitors."

In addition to offering best-in-class rear leg room and pass-through cargo space, the PT Cruiser Convertible is also one of the quietest convertibles, based on driving experience.

"The combination of the sport bar design and position, together with enhancements to the body structure results in an exceptionally quiet ride," said Lyons. "While on-the-road experience is what ultimately matters, we performed extensive wind tunnel testing to assure our customers a quiet ride, top up or top down."

Pricing, specification and timescales for the arrival of the left hand drive PT Cruiser Convertible in the UK have yet to be confirmed.

The Four Concept Cars That Reveal Potential Chrysler, Jeep And Dodge Designs Of The Future Include:

Dodge Sling Shot - The Dodge Sling Shot is an adventurous and fun sports car concept, designed to be adaptable, practical and affordable. Sling Shot offers the genuine character of Dodge through a responsive and fun-to-drive characteristic that can take it from 0-60 mph in approximately 10 seconds while delivering up to 45 miles to the gallon.

Jeep Rescue - Jeep Rescue is designed for the most extreme situations and unforgiving conditions. "The Jeep Rescue is Jeep capability taken to the extreme," said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President, Chrysler Group Design. "It is uniquely equipped for unequalled search and rescue service," continued Creed. Jeep Rescue not only hints at future design direction for a large Jeep but builds on the rugged heritage of Jeep to forge a new dimension for the brand.
