2017 Toyota Yaris

We chose the 2017 Toyota Yaris for its affordability. For college students, this is a key factor. Even if they aren’t the ones purchasing the vehicle, value and price are always big components of the buying process. 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 and the ability to park in small spaces.

2017 Toyota Camry

We chose the 2017 Toyota Camry for its durability. This is a great pick because of many other reasons including safety and value. This is demonstrated by its many awards like 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. College students need to get the most life and value out of their cars as possible. They will at least need this car to last through their four years of school and for a couple years after. The Camry definitely speaks to this needs. In fact, 90% of all Toyota Camrys sold over the last ten years are still on the road today.

2017 Toyota Prius

The 2017 Toyota Prius is our choice for best fuel economy. This is an important criteria because college students don’t normally have deep pockets, so they need saving power at the pump. With the 2017 Toyota Prius’s EPA estimated 54/50 mpg**, you’ll be able to pass the pump over and over again. Save the pocket money for the caffeine.
