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
- 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.
