If you got a problem with used cars and want to smell that fabric-plastic-glue smell of a brand new car, it’s normal that you will do some research in order to buy the best for the money you got. To spare you the effort, the award-winning online destination for car shoppers Cars.com, made a Top Ten Best Base Models list to guide you in choosing the most equipped vehicle for the least amount of cash.

The list is ordered by pricing and the second cheapest car you can buy having decent features is the Scion xB. For $17,555 you get equipment like power windows, full-adjustable steering wheel with audio controls, front sport bucket seats, remote keyless entry, power mirrors with turn signal indicators, tire pressure monitoring, cruise control and a Pioneer audio system with 6 speakers and USB connectivity.

For about double the price ($31,785), you can get a Toyota Avalon, which will get standard features like dual zone climate control, 6.1-inch infotainment system with AM/FM CD player, 8 speakers and USB/audio jack/Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, leather trimmed full-adjustable steering wheel with infotainment and phone controls, leather trimmed front seats, Smart Key System, auto power windows in all positions and the Star Safety System with 10 airbags and enough three-lettered-abbreviated systems to twist your tongue.

The rest of the top can be seen on the Cars.com official blog here.
