When it comes to driving technology, car buyers still like to be in control, research reveals.

Of course, you’ll need the funds or the financing to purchase one of these vehicles, but they are well below the average new-car price of $36,113, according to recent Experian data, and in the same ball park as the average price of a used vehicle, which stands at around $19,400.
