Top 10 Best Base Models

Bestbasemodels1

An ode to the base model.

Black door handles and a seat that can't move up and down/
paying monthly for not a lot has me feeling like a clown.

Just because you might not be able to afford more than the very least in a car doesn't mean you have to sing the base-model blues. Automakers are adding more features to their lowliest trim levels to entice shoppers even if some are stuck in the stone ages before the USB port became a necessity.

Here are 10 models that we consider to be solid picks, even in their base-model version.

Most-Read Car Reviews of the Week

2013ToyotaRAV4

Perhaps the 2013 Toyota RAV4 has the magic combo of a lavender-pants-suited Kaley Cuoco and her little dog, too, to thank for conjuring its continued domination on our list of most-read reviews. The ad campaign, prominently featured during this year's Super Bowl — starring Cuoco, of TV's "The Big Bang Theory," as a doggy-toting, wish-granting genie — no doubt is also being credited in part with the crossover's substantial sales increase this year. Want to know what else was popular this week? Your wish is our command:

1. 2013 Toyota RAV4

Most-Read Car Reviews of the Week

2013ToyotaRAV4

Despite having the fewest week-to-week carryovers of any most-read reviews list in recent memory, this week saw the obstinate 2013 Toyota RAV4 refuse to budge from the top spot it has dominated since the start of the year. Not only that, but the RAV4 managed to double the number of page views it received. A surprising seven of the remaining nine reviews were not in the top 10 last week.

Most-Read Car Reviews of the Week

2013ToyotaRAV4

The 2013 Toyota RAV4, which spent the first three months of 2013 atop our most-read reviews list, is once again at No. 1, overtaking the also-popular 2014 Subaru Forester. Following its long reign, the RAV4 relinquished its throne to the Forster to hold the No. 2 spot for a month before returning to the top spot for a week – before losing it again to the Forester last week only to reclaim it this week … whew! The other significant change this week is at No. 10, where the 2013 Nissan Altima returns to the list.

Most-Read Car Reviews of the Week

2013ToyotaRAV4

Just when we thought it was out, readers pull it back in. The godfather of persistently read reviews — the 2013 Toyota RAV4 — muscled its way back to the head of the family this week after being relegated to the No. 2 spot on our list of most-read reviews for a month by the 2014 Subaru Forester. Before that, the RAV4 enjoyed a three-month reign at No. 1 that we were beginning to think might never end. Ousted by a measly 109 page views, the Forester had to settle back into second place. Meanwhile, the 2014 Mazda CX-5 returns at No. 8 after a brief absence, while the 2013 Dodge Dart comes in at No. 10 after a long one.

Cars.com Family Reviews the 2013 Toyota Avalon

13Avalon

With its enormous backseat, comfy front seats and a trunk that’s double-stroller ready, the redesigned 2013 Toyota Avalon is ready for family duty, says Cars.com Family reviewer Carrie Kim. This five-seater has a smooth ride, but it also has plenty of power thanks to its 3.5-liter V-6 engine. The one downside Carrie found with this full-size sedan was its price: The Avalon starts at $31,885, but her test car cost a whopping $42,494.
