Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 2/11/2014 Alex Nishimoto

We live in an age where the ability to place a call without having to even touch your phone is standard on many cars. Yet there are some vehicles on the market that seem stuck in the past, lacking features or technology many have come to expect in a new car. MT-EEG wants to know what you consider to be the most low-tech new car available in today's Thread of the Day.

In the original thread, one poster suggested the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage, though that model comes with such standard features as automatic climate control, Bluetooth, and power side-view mirrors. The Toyota Corolla and Mazda2 were also called out for still offering four-speed automatic transmissions, when most of the industry offers at least six gears. You could argue that pushrod V-8s aren't as advanced as some newer overhead cam designs, though we wouldn't exactly call the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray's 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 low-tech with features like continuously variable valve timing, direct injection, and cylinder deactivation.

Tell us what new car you consider to be the most low-tech available in today's Thread of the Day.
