Edmunds' Expert Review

Despite its distinctive appearance, the 2007 Chrysler Crossfire can't compete with its newer and more capable rivals.

vehicle overview

The unloved 2007 Chrysler Crossfire trudges forward as a largely forgotten legacy of the short-lived Mercedes-Benz/Chrysler union. Touted as a winning combination of American styling and German engineering, the Crossfire is in reality a reskinned previous-generation Mercedes-Benz SLK roadster, which debuted in 1997. The only significant difference is that the Crossfire gets either a fixed roof or a ragtop in place of the SLK's retractable hardtop. This formula may have generated some excitement back when the Crossfire first came out, but that was 2004, and this is now. Today, buyers can choose from a plethora of sport coupes that perform much better than the antiquated Crossfire. If your heart is set on the Chrysler, though, you'll at least enjoy the hefty discounts that are likely on this unloved model.

If you know anyone who doubts that beauty is only skin deep, ask them if they've ever heard of the Crossfire. From a primordial recirculating-ball steering system to an ancient 3.2-liter 215-horsepower V6, the Crossfire's spec sheet isn't pretty by contemporary standards. Furthermore, the interior is cramped, and the old-school switchgear will remind you of the '90s -- which isn't surprising, since it was lifted straight out of the old SLK. Only the Crossfire's distinctive sheet metal distinguishes it as a product of the present decade.

Nonetheless, there are some things to be said in the Crossfire's favor. Thanks to some German know-how, the Crossfire coupe imparts an impressive sense of solidity that belies its age. Its meaty tires offer sports carlike adhesion, even though the archaic steering system never feels reassuring. And the Crossfire's acceleration remains adequate for its class, which is surprising in light of its aged components.

Trouble is, the Crossfire's $35K price tag puts it in fast and cutting-edge company. The Nissan 350Z/Infiniti G35 cousins, for example, boast markedly better performance for the same or less money. If you're drawn to the Crossfire's Germanic roots, the similarly packaged BMW Z4 starts around this price point. So does the coupe version of the BMW 328i. The Crossfire may cut a dashing figure, but it's outclassed by the competition in just about every other way.

trim levels & features

The two-passenger 2007 Chrysler Crossfire is offered in either coupe or convertible form. The two available trim levels are base and Limited, as the high-performance SRT-6 trim has been dropped for 2007. Base models come standard with 18-inch wheels in front and 19s out back, dual-zone manual air-conditioning, a four-speaker CD stereo, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, full power accessories and, on convertibles, a power top with rear glass defroster. Limited models add power-adjustable leather seats with heaters and an eight-speaker, 240-watt Infinity stereo system.

performance & mpg

All Crossfires are motivated by a 3.2-liter V6 engine that routes 215 hp and 229 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. In base models, the V6 is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, while Limited models can be equipped with either the six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic with a manual shift mode.

The 2007 Chrysler Crossfire runs from zero to 60 in less than 7 seconds when equipped with the manual transmission; figure a few 10ths more for the five-speed auto. EPA fuel economy estimates are 17 mpg city/25 highway for manual-equipped Crossfires, and 21/28 for models with the automatic.

safety

Standard safety equipment on the 2007 Chrysler Crossfire includes antilock brakes with brake assist, traction control, stability control and side airbags. A tire pressure monitor comes standard on Limited models.

driving

Despite the modest power rating of the 2007 Chrysler Crossfire's V6, it provides respectable thrust above 3,000 rpm. Low-end torque, however, is deficient, and the engine sounds taxed above 5,000 rpm. The Crossfire is a reasonably adept canyon carver, but steering feel and response are lackluster. As long as you don't expect genuine sports-car performance from the Crossfire, it likely won't disappoint.

interior

For those who are familiar with the first-generation SLK, the Crossfire's cozy cabin will feel awfully familiar. Among the Crossfire's original touches are the gigantic blind spots that go hand-in-hand with that "boattail" rear end. To Chrysler's credit, though, the Crossfire's two-tone interior with metallic trim is pleasant enough to behold. That trim, however, is mostly just painted plastic, and there has been no attempt to spruce up the blocky Mercedes stereo and its undersized buttons. Cargo space, not surprisingly, is at a premium -- though in this way, at least, the Crossfire is not alone among similarly priced sport coupes.

I've always wanted a roadster but didn't want used and couldn't justify the price of new until now. These cars are a real value if you can still find them new. The car runs and handles very well. It also rides very well for a roadster, is extremely solid, and has very good fit and finish. Hopefully it will be reliable but it also has lifetime, unlimited milage drivetrain warranty and I purchased lifetime, unlimited milage wrap around Chrysler warranty for additional $1,200 with a $100.00 deductable. Peace of mind for major repairs if you plan on keeping the car long term as I do. The car looks great and is just a lot of fun. Only comes out on nice days. A real keeper.
Awesome

The car has been an eye turner from day one. Chrysler did an over-the-top job in building it. I have more people coment on it. Fast, sporty great looking/sexy. Look into it, you won't regret it.
fun to drive, but with some problems of concern
norman, 2/28/2018
great vehicle, airbag was on the list to be replaced. convertible window -poor- overweight. causes window to separate from top. not covered by extended warranties. if you buy one, its worth it, but look to have something that protects you in case this happens. Chrysler made the top only. top needs to be stronger to hold window: If you buy a new top, the problem would not be fixed unless you add support to hold rear window in place.
XF - eXtreamly Fantastic
erzer, 11/29/2008
A highly under rated car by many people simply because of the Chrysler name. This car handles very well in the curves and with the auto shifter, it's very easy to downshift when needed. Average MPG is 25 highway mostly. This is my daily driver, but stock tires (Conti's) are not good on any snow, wet driving is good; you'll need better tires if driving in winter conditions;rims are staggered but you can go with staggered tires if you can find the right ones. Costs for avg buyers to think about - high profile tires, premium fuel, 100% synthetic oil (only change every 7k). Overall, this car is worth the money and I'd say undervalued.
