In the technology age, some of us are left feeling nostalgic about less complicated times. You may fear purchasing a high-tech vehicle due to it being complicated, expensive or difficult to maintain. Let’s look at car expert Jacek Michałski’s list of the best low-tech new cars to purchase and operate this 2021.
1. 2020 Chevrolet Spark LS
Chevrolet is renowned for making vehicles that are easy to operate. The interior is standard, and the locks and windows are all manually operated. It is also a manual car with the conventional five shift-gears. The simple interface of the infotainment system will ensure you have a smooth ride. It might be so easy that you could simultaneously play Loki Casino while you drive.
2. 2020 Honda Fit LX
This Honda is one of the best cars in 2021 for technophobes. It has a standard manual transmission for those afraid of operating an automatic vehicle. It also has basic technology that we have all come to know and love, such as:
A USB port
A rear camera
A 13cm infotainment system
This car is simple, fuel-efficient and reasonably priced. It’s no wonder it won the 2020 Best Subcompact Car for the Money award.
3. 2020 Nissan 370Z
If you’ve been looking at photos of cars that were released this year, you’re sure to come across this one. The Nissan 370Z is perfect because of its minimal technological changes and manual transmission. It also has the most low-tech interior available in a 2021 car.
4. 2020 Nissan Versa Sedan
The Nissan Versa is the perfect vehicle for your journey back to basics. Equipped with a basic five-shift manual gear system and a standard rearview camera, this is the car for you. Driving and parking have never been simpler.
5. 2020 Dodge Grand Caravan SE
This car was not built for speed. With its simple interior and basic features, some might even call it outdated. However, this is the perfect car if you’re looking for a simple, antique feel.
6. 2020 Nissan Frontier
Nissan has found another opportunity to assist technophobes this year. Cruise the roads of Poland in this low-tech, five-shift manual transmission car. This car’s basic technology includes Bluetooth, cameras and an 18cm touch screen.
7. 2020 Hyundai Accent SE
Hyundai has outdone itself with assisting technologically-challenged drivers. It has a 13cm touch screen display, Bluetooth and a USB port – but that’s it. This manual vehicle also allows you to use six gears to ensure your smooth ride.
8. 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo
This car provides comfort to technophobes because the design hasn’t changed much since 2011. You’ll find basic driver assistance features, such as blind-spot monitoring and traffic alerts, but they are simple to use. Manual front seat adjusters will make you feel like you’re driving one of the most standard cars out there.
9. 2020 Subaru Crosstrek
Car fact reports have shown that the base model of this car is very standard in its technology. It has a 17cm touch display, six-speed manual transmission, and other car basics. Aside from that, this car is as simple as they come.
10. 2020 Dacia Duster
This car is all about being economic and simple. It does not contain any high-tech features that would scare you off – and it looks great, too. The Dacia is the greatest car for a run-of-the-mill manual drive.
Keep it Simple
If this hasn’t convinced you, bear in mind that an electric vehicle will cost you thousands of Zloty to charge every month. So skip the Tesla and get yourself a tried and tested simple car.
