Top Five Student Cars

As the new school year begins, we thought it would be the perfect time to post an article about student cars.

At Hilton Garage, we have a great variety of used cars with plenty of models which are perfect for those who want something economical to get them to lectures. Here are five of our tops picks for students.

Vauxhall Corsa

With 3 or 5-door options, the Vauxhall Corsa range offers a few different models to choose from. No matter which you choose, this is a perfect student car. With a spacious cabin yet compact exterior, the Vauxhall Corsa is perfect for those students in the big city. It’s fun to drive and easy to park and maneuver. 

Fiat 500 

The Fiat 500 is already extremely popular with the younger generation of drivers, due to it funky design and how easy it is to drive. The Fiat 500 is fuel efficient and the entry-level models come with all the equipment you need at a reasonable price. Again, the cabin is spacious enough for students and the vehicle itself is super compact.  

Ford Fiesta

Another very popular car for first-time drivers and students, the Ford Fiesta is one of the all-time best sellers in the UK. The earlier models are super affordable and hold their value well, so won’t be affected by depreciation so much. The drive is stable and secure, and the Ford Fiesta is a reliable long-term vehicle. 

Audi A1

The Audi A1 tends to hold its value better than most sporty hatches, so depreciation will be less. Even the lowest 1.2 engine is powerful and can give you a fun drive. With low running costs and a spacious interior, the Audi A1 is perfect for the more mature student with a bit of income.

Skoda Citigo/Volkswagen Up/Seat Mii

These upmarket City Cars are the perfect student car. With its modern design and value for money, students can get around the city easily in this compact hatch. All are fairly cheap to insure, and the running costs are equally affordable. With clever fold-down seats, they can hold a lot of luggage with ease.
