Best Cars for a College Grad

Driving as a College Graduate

Life post-college can be both scary and exciting. While you may be leaving with a degree under your arm, you have to face a competitive workforce that could take you anywhere. At the same time, you’ll need to be prepared for anything. You never know when you’ll have to move cross-country, go on a long wilderness excursion, or even commute to a new job. Since post-college is such a tumultuous and thrilling time, you’ll want something prepared for any moment. Fuel-economy is a must, so is plenty of cargo space to fit belongings, pets, and friends. There are plenty of Hyundai cars for sale out there that can fit the bill, but here are just a few that might catch your eye.

Roomy and Sporty

Roomy, fuel efficient, and sporty, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport is the perfect pick for a college grad on the move. This hatchback sedan gets an efficient 26 miles per gallon in the city and 32 on the highway. With such impressive fuel economy, commuting or moving cross-country shouldn’t break the bank. It also has plenty of cargo space, giving you room for the necessities of a life in flux. What’s more, this Hyundai sedan is affordable, which is often a priority for a recent college grad.
