American carmakers have been lagging behind their European and Asian counterparts in making tech available, but signs from the Detroit Auto Show point to an attempt at catching up. The Chrysler Sebring is a stolidly middle-class car, not particularly luxurious, though perhaps aimed at people who intend to move up in the world. I found this navigation-equipped Sebring on the show floor, which suggests that Chrysler is making high-tech features more widely available. This little nav unit, which also includes audio controls, sits discreetly in the dash below the climate controls, surrounded by wood-grain-finished plastic. The controls are what I think of as being functional but not flashy. The LCD is on the smallish side, and the unit is set low in the center stack for easy visibility. But Chrysler gets nearly extravagant with the screens, setting another smaller one in between the vents at the top of the stack. What's next--iPod integration in a PT Cruiser?
