Most students are very limited in their expenses, but sometimes, cars are just impossible to replace. The variety of choices is really great, so we’ve decided to conduct a little research and list eight the best cars for students. Each car on this list has earned at least “good” due to a test made by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. So let’s start the ball rolling!
Pretty good car to ride for a price of approximately $15.000 (18,499 including fees and taxes). It has 173-horsepower with a four-cylinder engine. What is important, gas economy is surprisingly great. Talking about safety, it got into Top Safety Pick by IIHS. The reliability of this car is fine, though not better than Corolla for instance, or Civic.
Not only this car is comfortable to ride due to its size, but also it is comfortable to lease. The deal of factory-to-consumer rebate and at 0.99 per cent for 24-55 months allows even students with a tight budget to buy their dream. Moreover, this car got into IIHS Top Safety Pick list, which means it is safe enough to ride around a country. The usual price of Civic sedan starts at $15,700.
138-horsepower along with four-cylinder engine gives fine fuel economy. Unfortunately, it didn’t get into IIHS Top Safety Pick, but the innovative system of seats, head restraints, and roof strength speaks for itself. The price starts at $14,295, but Kia Canada offers you a $2,750 factory incentive. So, you get a great subcompact for the price less than $12,000.
Subaru vehicles are constantly getting into IIHS Top Safety Pick. At the same time, Impreza isn’t the prettiest car around, but regarding on its reliability you will never regret buying it. The price of four-door hatchback starts with $20,890, however, you may get a decent factory discount of $1,500.
Less than $16,000 for a Top Safety Pick hatchback with a nice reliability, first-class instrument layout, and extra comfortable steering system? Sounds great as for me.
You can’t find more versatile small car than this. It is ranked first among sub compacts according to J.D. Power’s VDS. Price starts at $14,635 but Hondas’ incentive reduces it by $1,000. However, it’s been in the Top Safety Pick, but in 2013 was rated “poor” due to a front crash test.
Average reliability and comfortability for less than $15,000. If to buy on a tick, Chevrolet offers a great deal of 0.0 per cent for 24-48 months. In general, entertaining and surprisingly quick car. Nice exterior design.
Outstanding exterior design along with a powerful engine and fuel efficiency for just over $12,000. Although Accent earned “poor” in the IIHS rating, it won its class in J.D. Power’s IQS.
Hopefully, this list of top cars for students will help you to finally decide what you want and make your life easier as soon as possible.
