Once you finish high school or college, getting a car is a great way to celebrate your success. It also serves a purpose when you get a job and need a commuter vehicle. There are a number of great used cars for recent grads, whether you’re looking for a status symbol or something that’s simply pragmatic.
According to CarFax, one of the top cars is a Honda Civic, particularly the 2016 model year. This sedan is truly practical, and it lasts. The Civic comes with a sensible design and affordable price tag, and the 2016 model year has a sharper look and added performance to give you more bang for your buck.
BMW 3 Series
For those taking a more luxurious route, consider the 2012 to 2016 BMW 3 Series. While the 3 Series costs a little more than other sedans, it will show others that you’re successful thanks to the air of refinement that surrounds this vehicle. The 3 Series also has superb handling, a sleek exterior, and a name you can trust.
Eco-conscious graduates should get behind the wheel of the 2016 Toyota Prius. This model has a four-door hatchback look, so it looks like your average sedan. However, under the hood is a truly innovative hybrid powertrain, which has 56 highway mpg.* You will not only reduce your carbon footprint in the Prius, but you’ll save at the pump in doing so.
Want to explore the outdoors now that you’re finished with school? Start your adventure in a Subaru Outback. The 2015 to 2016 model years give you the best value, offering high ground clearance, standard all-wheel drive, and a reliable design that you can trust.
