Top vehicle picks for college grads


Autotrader in the U.S. has come out with its recommendations of reliable and budget-friendly vehicles for recent school graduates.

The editors at Autotrader came up with nine new and CPO vehicles that they said would suit a young buyer's lifestyle, factoring in cost to buy and own, practicality, styling and equipment available. Vehicles have a starting price under $25,000 with at least 12.7 km/litre, said Autotrader.

"All of the vehicles we picked for this list are fun, reliable and thoughtfully designed - perfect choices to fuel the next phase of your journey," said Brian Moody, executive editor at Autotrader, in a written release.

Of the vehicles included in the list, three are CPO.

"CPO cars also merit close consideration, as they offer many of the benefits of a new car, like low mileage and bumper-to-bumper limited warranties, without the new-car price tag," said Moody.

Here's the list of recommended vehicles:

  • FIAT 500X
  • Honda Civic
  • Kia Soul
  • Mazda3
  • Scion iA
  • Subaru Crosstrek
  • CPO Chevrolet Equinox
  • CPO Lexus CT
  • CPO Hyundai Sonata

The U.S. site also includes tips for young buyers, including information on CPO vehicles, credit scores and test drives.
