    What is the Most Low-Tech New Car Available Today?

    According to Mototrend, the Mirage is one of the most low-tech cars available today ... I consider that a huge plus in its favor!

    Although it was mentioned, the Mirage was quickly dropped from the list because of some 'high-tech' standard features - which includes power side mirrors. :facepalm:

    Either way, again, for the price, the Mirage's standard features are great.

    It's surprising that they consider power mirrors "high tech" today.

    Yeah.. the "seek/autotune" feature on the radio must really put it over the top technologically.
    ; )
    Will weld for beer.

    Seek and autotune are two different things. Do we have an autotune?

    I don't think so.

    I would say a Jetta "base". It comes in below the "S" and isn't really advertised. It has power windows and locks but no A/C, radio or cruise and an 8-valve SOHC 2-liter (no VVT) that dates from the early '90s.

    They've updated it with a multilink rear end, but when this generation was launched it had a twist beam in the back.

    Do they still sell that model?

    The current generation of Versa has manual windows, no power locks and a basic HVAC system.

    Back when the Versa came with no A/C or radio, I tried to get one. Wasn't able to.
