1998 Chrysler Cirrus Review

An okay choice for basic driving.

Reviewed by Automotive on


The 1998 Chrysler Cirrus is a quality value since it comes with long list of standard features at no extra cost. Included in the standard features are speed proportional power steering and remote keyless entry. But there are two downsides: there's no base model, and the only model available doesn't come with traction control.

What's New

The 1998 Chrysler Cirrus carries new features such as a power adjustable driver seat, the 2.5-liter V-6 engine, the tilt adjustable steering wheel, and power windows, locks, and mirrors. It also has five new color options available and depowered airbags.


The 1998 Chrysler Cirrus receives exterior rearview mirrors that are power adjustable and heated. Fog lights are installed to allow for better visibility when in foggy weather. The entry system is a keyless system, and the entryway is lighted. The rear window has a defroster, and the glass is tinted to give riders more privacy. Furthermore, 15-inch alloy wheel embrace the car to give it more pizzazz.


The 1998 Chrysler Cirrus has an interior rearview mirror that's a day-night mirror to give a clear view in almost any lighting. Bucket seats are in the front, while bench styled seats are in the back, which are upholstered with high-quality cloth. Both the driver seat, and the front passenger seat are six-way adjustable and provide a comfortable ride up front. The door trim insert is cloth as is the headliner. The dashboard has a simulated wood insert that gives the interior an attractive style. The air-conditioning is manually controlled, and under seat ducts are included for the rear passengers. One 12-volt outlet is available in the front. The steering wheel is wrapped with leather and has a reliable grip for easy steering. The front and rear windows are powered, and the driver’s window is a one-touch open and close window.

Performance & Handling

The 1998 Chrysler Cirrus's V-6 engine only provides 18 more horsepower than the 2.4-liter engine that was used in previous models. Some of the competing brand’s comparable models have better performance.


The 1998 Chrysler Cirrus gets delay-off headlamps that are accompanied by fog lights, assisting in providing a clear view on foggy days. The entry is illuminated to help the passengers and driver avoid stumbling while entering and exiting. The four-wheel anti-lock brake system helps avoid sliding and is equipped with a high center mounted brake light. Front driver and passenger airbags protect the two riding up front in the case of a collision.
