2. 2013 Chrysler 200 Touring
Starting price: $27,100
There was a time a working-class U.S. driver could buy a convertible without being shoved into a compact box, putting on a pair of racing gloves or taking out a mortgage to pay for some luxury marque's hood ornament. The Chrysler 200 is the last link to that distant past. While not as cheaply made or noisy as the Sebring convertible that preceded it, the 200's V6 gives buyers a combined 25 miles per gallon while delivering more than 280 horsepower. The interior, meanwhile, offers a ton of legroom, LED lighting throughout and a touchscreen communication and entertainment console that buyers won't have to upgrade to a luxury package to enjoy.
