The auto industry is in the midst of a major long-term shift, as technology pushes us toward an inevitable future of autonomous electric driving. Meanwhile, cars of all classes are quickly losing market share to crossovers and SUVs.

One consequence of both these trends is a growing demand for features that were once considered luxury items even in entry-level vehicles. The push toward autonomy means many of these now-standard features are active safety driver assists like collision-avoidance systems, but it’s also now common to find niceties like heated seats in even the most modest of models. Differences in climate and spending habits between the Canadian and American markets also inform how manufacturers equip certain models for each country.

We were reminded of that recently when comparing the lists of standard equipment for two of Canada’s most popular cars – the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla – with those of the same models sold south of the border. Both of these affordable sedans have grown up a lot in the last few years and, believe it or not, we didn’t realize that air conditioning was still an option in the Civic and Corolla in Canada, while a climate-controlled cabin is standard in both cars for the US market.

That got us thinking about what other cars in Canada can still be bought without air conditioning, a shopping list that is shorter than we thought.

Can Ponycars Be Muscle Cars?

  Can Ponycars Be Muscle Cars? We can probably agree that the Ford Mustang created the ponycar market, even though the Barracuda debuted several weeks earlier. While the Barracuda was a Valiant with a contemporary fastback roofline, the Mustang was a much bigger entity: a new class of car backed by solid market research that seized upon emerging youth, female, and two-car family demographics and psychographics. Yet apparently we can't agree on whether or not a Mustang with a Cobra Jet is a muscle car.

Jeep

Your options are far more limited if you want an SUV or crossover without chilled air, but SUV specialist Jeep has two in its lineup.

The first is the iconic Wrangler, in whose two-door Sport and Sport S trims A/C is an extra-cost option. At $33,945 and $37,895 respectively, this may well be the priciest vehicle you can buy today that does not include air conditioning. The four-door Unlimited Sahara includes it at $45,745, as does the two-door Rubicon, at $46,345.

Jeep’s other appearance in this list is the Renegade, whose Sport trim is the only one lacking standard climate control, at $21,995. A/C is standard in the $28,645 North trim and all those further up the price ladder.

Kia

Air conditioning costs extra in two Kia models, the subcompact Rio and compact Forte, and in both cases the entry-level LX trim is the only one that comes unchilled. In the Rio, the LX+ is where A/C becomes standard for $16,395 in sedan shape and $16,595 for the hatchback. In the Forte, air is bundled with the automatic transmission in the LX AT for $18,595, which adds more than $3,000 to the car’s base price. Both the Forte Koup and hatchback come standard with A/C.

Mazda

Mitsubishi

You’re not seeing things: Mitsubishi’s only car without standard A/C is the Mirage subcompact in ES trim, which goes for $10,998 with a five-speed manual transmission and $12,198 with an automatic. This is also the second car on our list with crank windows, but only for the rears. To get air (and power windows all around), move up to the ES Plus model for $14,798 with a five-speed manual transmission.

Nissan

As well as arguably being Canada’s most charming car, the Nissan Micra is also the least expensive, with its starting price of $9,988 in S trim, which gets you neither air conditioning nor any power-operated windows. Both are standard in the $14,288 SV model with a five-speed manual transmission, or you can add an automatic and air to the S for $13,888.

Interestingly, Nissan’s other non-air-conditioned car is not the Versa Note (where it comes standard) but the more expensive Sentra S. Like the Micra, if you want air in a Sentra S, it comes bundled with an automatic transmission for $19,258, a $3,400 bump over the starting price.

The subcompact Yaris hatchback comes without A/C in three-door CE trim and can’t be added as an option. If you want it, get a five-door LE, starting at $16,800 with a five-speed manual transmission.

If you want a non-air-conditioned Toyota with more space and refinement, a Corolla CE with the six-speed manual transmission comes without. If you want an automatic transmission, however, you get A/C too – whether you want it or not – for $20,375, a $3,585 jump from the car’s base price.
