Car shopping begins and ends at your desktop with FindTheBest’s new car comparison tool. Find, sort, and compare car models based on their most important features – now including trim style.
Trim style refers to the features, add-ons and luxury amenities of a car that contribute to its price. A base model car has very few add-ons; it has a basic trim style. High-level trims, that include features like keyless ignition, leather seats, navigation and supercharged engines, will raise the price of a car.
The ability to compare trim style on FindTheBest offers car shoppers two major advantages. First, car shoppers will clearly see which features add to the price of a car. Second, car shoppers can compare trim styles across car manufacturers. In other words, car buyers can see side-by-side columns that a fully loaded Mazda 6 s Grand Touring model and a high-trim Subaru Legacy are both in the same price range as a base model Buick LaCrosse. Normally, a Buick would be in a higher price category than Mazda and Subaru, but with the luxury trims of the latter two, the price category is level across the manufactures.
Car shoppers wanting to get the most for their money can compare trim styles side-by-side to clearly see each difference. To demonstrate, let’s compare a base model 2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS and a 2012 Hyundai Elantra Limited, a high-level trim model. Dropping those three letters, GLS, and adding Limited to the title gets a car buyer alloy wheels, hands-free calling via Bluetooth, a 6-speed automatic transmission, leather upholstery, climate-controlled A/C and a sunroof. Plus an extra $4,000, that is.
Price conscious car shoppers can keep track of these subtleties with an easily sortable list of cars – and clearly labeled trim styles – on FindTheBest’s car comparison.
Just because the dealership is in the rearview mirror, doesn’t mean the subtle price differences go out the window: use FindTheBest to keep track of it all.
