Cars.com, the online resource for buying and selling new and used cars, recently released a list of its editors' picks for top 10 base models. The list includes cars that have a lot to offer drivers, even at the base model level. Here are the models ranked by price.

m 2013 Chevrolet Spark LS ($12,995): One of the least expensive new cars comes surprisingly well-equipped with essentials like air conditioning and power windows — two features that aren't always standard on bargain models.

2013 Scion xB ($17,555): The xB remains one of the best cargo-for-the-dollar deals. Standard features in this base model include USB integration, a six-speaker stereo and cruise control.

2013 Honda Civic LX Sedan ($18,995): This once-sparse compact sedan now includes features like Bluetooth, USB, a rearview camera and Pandora compatibility standard in the base model.

2013 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Sedan ($18,655): The Impreza's most impressive standard base-model feature is all wheel drive. Some other standard features include Bluetooth phone and audio and tilt-telescoping steering wheel with audio and hands-free controls.

2013 Mazda Mazda5 Sport ($20,735): The Mazda5 Sport is the most affordable six-seat vehicle on the market. Standard features include automatic headlights, cruise control, satellite radio and more.

2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS ($21,240): This base model comes with plentiful standard features like cruise control; Bluetooth; USB; tilt-telescoping steering wheel with audio, cruise and Bluetooth controls; and also heated mirrors.

2013 Chevrolet Camaro 1LS ($24,245): The base Camaro is an attractive package with standard features like a six-speaker stereo, satellite radio, Bluetooth and exterior features like a spoiler and 18-inch heritage steel wheels.

2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid ($27,995): This actually is a well-equipped SE trim level with standard features like Ford's Sync system, USB, Bluetooth, cruise control, heated front seats, power front seats, push-button start and keyless entry.

2013 Toyota Avalon ($31,785): This competitively priced full-size sedan delivers luxury-like features like dual-zone climate control and a 6.1-inch touch-screen along with push button start and keyless entry.

2013 Volvo S60 T5 ($32,795): The S60 loads up on features like rain-sensing windshield wipers, 7-inch information screen, Bluetooth, USB, satellite radio, heated mirrors, headlight washers and spill-resistant cloth upholstery — a family favorite.
