3 Best Toyota Vehicles for College Students
Choosing a new car for your college student can be a challenge. Thankfully, Toyota offers a wide variety of diverse vehicle options so you can find the right fit for your student. We’re putting together the 3 best Toyota vehicles for college students based on three criteria: affordability, fuel economy, and all around dependability.
Criteria 1: Price
For college students, affordability is key. Even if they aren’t the ones purchasing the vehilce, value and price are key components in the decision making process. College students today are fighting with student loans, part-time jobs, and textbook prices. The 2017 Toyota Yaris begins at a starting MSRP of $15,250* making it one of the most inexpensive models on the market and a smart choice for any college student. Plus, this hatchback gives your college student 15.6 cubic feet of cargo space, making moving from dorm to dorm easy.
Criteria 2: Gas Mileage
We know college students’ pockets aren’t deep enough to stop at the pump all the time. This is why the 2017 Prius C is one of our choices for the best Toyota vehicles for college students.
We know college students’ pocket books aren’t deep enough to be stopping at the pump every day. That’s why our second criteria is gas mileage. At an EPA estimated 48/43 mpg**, the 2017 Toyota Prius C is a top pick for fuel economy. This way, your college student will have more money for the important things, like their all-nighter coffee supply, and pizza take-out money.
Criteria 3: Durability
With the 2017 Toyota Camry gaining awards such as the NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Rating, Best Midsize Car for the Money from U.S. News, and a Best Buy Award Finalist by Kelley Blue Book, it’s no wonder we chose the Camry as our top pick for our third criteria category of durability. College students need to get the most life and value out of their cars as possble. They will at least need this car to last through their four years of school and for a couple years after until they start a job that allows them to afford a different car. The Camry definitely speaks to these needs. In fact, 90% of all Toyota Camrys sold over the last ten years are still on the road today!
