With an MSRP from only $13,000, the 2017 Chevy Spark
is one of the most affordable vehicles available on the market today. This small subcompact hatchback has seating for up to four passengers, but its back seat also folds down to give you more room for storage. For the college kid on a budget, this model also helps save money at the tank with up to an EPA-estimated 41 mpg highway and 31 mpg city, which is especially helpful if you’re headed farther than nearby Des Moines to attend school. Like most Chevys, the Spark also comes standard with a Wi-Fi hotspot and a Chevy MyLink infotainment system for maximum connectivity.
For the college student looking to trek out on an adventure, the 2017 Chevy Trax
is a practical option while still offering plenty of fun. This small crossover SUV is offered with available all-wheel drive and comes powered by a turbocharged 1.4L inline-four engine. With seating for up to five passengers, the Trax also lets you store plenty of gear for a weekend trip to visit friends at Iowa State University, sporting a max cargo volume of 48.4 cubic feet. It’s received impressive crash safety test scores and is still competitively priced from $21,000 MSRP.
For the college student in need of a little bit more room, the 2017 Chevy Cruze
proves to be a well-rounded choice. Available in both sedan and hatchback formats, the Cruze has a relatively spacious cabin for a car in the compact sedan segment, and it comes powered by an impressive turbocharged 1.4L inline-four engine that makes 153 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is also strong at up to an EPA-estimated 40 mpg highway. In terms of tech, your college student will enjoy available features like Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, and a Bose® stereo system. The Cruze starts at just $16,975 MSRP.
If your driving scholar is going to be hauling around quite a bit of equipment or perhaps attending school out of state, you might want to put him behind the wheel of the 2017 Chevy Equinox
. This crossover SUV delivers extra confidence on the road with a broad stance, available all-wheel drive, and an available 3.6L V6 engine that puts out 301 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. If you go with the V6 powertrain, you’ll also get sportier suspension tuning. With comfortable seating for five adults, the Equinox can also handle a cargo load of up to 63.7 cubic feet, making move-in day at Drake or Grand View University in Des Moines a breeze. Still, this model remains affordable with an MSRP from $23,100.
