The 10 most affordable student cars

By Redaction – on in Cars,
On your way to your first day of university and your old car let you down? Replace it with one of those affordable student cars.

We have all, or almost all, been there: full-time studies, part-time work, very few savings but needing to make ends meet, not to mention the new iPhone you were excited to buy… In short, when it’s time to get around and we can’t rely on a reliable public transit system, an economical vehicle is the right choice. Here are the 10 most affordable student cars that will allow you to be fully independent without ruining yourself.

For a student on a strict budget, the cost of a car is as important as its fuel consumption, since it involves regular expenses. The Aveo suits the lifestyle of academics limited by their wallets. Very economical, it allows a certain monetary freedom.

Compact, comfortable, dynamic and affordable, the Yaris is among the ideal cars for students. In addition to its modern design and reliable mechanics, its affordable price makes it a wise choice for young adults that are still in school.

Active students looking for a car that offers more space should consider the Kia Soul. It offers all the advantages of a commercial vehicle, in addition to offering a sporty and original design as well as being compact enough to park easily in small spaces.

Do you want to dare the sports utility vehicle despite your student budget? Choose the Suzuki SX4 for comfortable and stylish travel. You can enjoy its space and performance at a reasonable price.

 

Being a student doesn’t mean you have to go around in a rusty box. Often, unreliable vehicles cost more than a new car or one that has been on the road for only a few years. If you are thinking of investing in a means of transportation that will offer you maximum freedom and minimum garage visits without exceeding your budget, consider offering yourself one of these affordable student cars.
