Things To Consider When Buying A Car For Your Teen Or College Student

When you start searching for a vehicle for your teen or college student, you will have a few things to consider to ensure that you purchase the right fit for their needs. Since they will be new to driving and owning a vehicle, you should find a vehicle with low running costs and easy maintenance, providing the best value for your family. Also, since your new drivers at home will still be learning the various aspects of driving, it's a good idea to purchase a used vehicle that's safe and fuel efficient. Other considerations for selecting a model for your teen or college student include insurance cost, safety testing results, and reliability ratings.

Best Used Cars For Teens Under $20,000

When choosing a vehicle for your teen or college student, you will want to purchase a model that is easy to drive and has excellent fuel economy, making vehicles under $20,000 great options. You will find many options within this budget, including the following:

  • Mazda3

You can get the Mazda3 in four-door sedan or five-door hatchback body styles, which are perfect for various commuting needs. It has excellent safety ratings and gets great fuel economy, which makes it ideal. Notable standard options of the 2019 Mazda3 model are Automatic Emergency Braking, a 7-inch touchscreen, Blind-Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and AUX input.

  • Jeep Wrangler

Although the Wrangler might not be the most fuel-efficient model within this list, it delivers the best all-weather performance and superior off-road capability to anything you might find within this price range. You can also equip it with various safety options like a backup camera, Blind-Spot and Cross-Path Detection, and a Rear Park Assist System.

  • Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V is a good choice for a safe commute that's fuel efficient, but you should be willing to live with the minimalistic interior that has basic offerings. Some models are available with all-wheel-drive, which is great for winter driving.

  • Hyundai Elantra

The Elantra is a budget-friendly option, giving you low running costs and adequate safety ratings. It stands out within its segment for its stunning looks and sleek interior design.

  • Toyota Corolla

The Corolla is a modest sedan that's outstandingly reliable and fuel efficient. However, you would have to go for the newer models to get features like LED headlights, rearview camera, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
