Explore The Best Chevy Cars for College Students

The Chevy College Discount Program entitles eligible students and recent grads to scoop below-MSRP prices on new Chevy cars. Luckily enough, the Chevy stable is home to some of the best cars for college students, so we thought we’d highlight four models that combine the efficiency, safety, and practicality that speak to the minds of parents with the cool tech, fun drive, and modern design your kids will yearn for.



The Chevy Cruze

The Chevrolet Cruze is available as a hatchback or a compact sedan, and that’s versatility that reflects its overall nature. Parents will be reassured by the fact that this was the first car in its class to equip ten standard air bags, and advanced driver assistance technologies include blind-spot monitoring to ensure the long highway haul home for Thanksgiving is blessedly uneventful.

It’ll be a low-cost ride into the bargain, with current models achieving up to 30 mpg in the city and 40 on the highway. Your high school grads will be won over by OnStar 4G LTE built-in Wi-Fi and a surprisingly agile drive.


The Chevy Equinox

Named both “Most Dependable Compact SUV” and “Highest Ranked Compact SUV in Initial Quality” by J.D. Power, the Chevrolet Equinox midsize SUV is a peace-of-mind choice for parents.

The new 2018 Equinox should speak to students studying a little further afield. While University of Nebraska and Creighton freshman might get away with a smaller vehicle, the Equinox’s expansive cargo dimensions are going to make moving residences easy. 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and RemoteLink mobile app join the features list to make the Equinox a crowd-pleaser.


The Chevy Spark

Whether burning the midnight oil at Clarkson College or cramming for exams at Grace University, your college-bound kid is going to be in and out of Omaha’s center.

The Chevrolet Spark’s subcompact dimensions and leading efficiency ratings of up to 31 in the city and 41 on the highway make it bred for the city, and students will appreciate its eye-popping exterior colors and feature-rich cabin. The low starting price makes for a perfect first car, and you’ll still snag Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.


The Chevy Trax

The Chevrolet Trax strikes a happy medium between the space of the Equinox and the drivability and efficiency of the Cruze and Spark. A compact crossover with plenty of high-end safety technologies on hand and the ability to drive sharply in the city, the Trax also offers an extremely versatile interior.

60/40 split-folding rear seats can fold to take items up to eight feet in length, so this is a model able to accommodate your grad’s life without overwhelming them with sprawling exterior dimensions.
