We know college students’ pocket books aren’t deep enough to be stopping at the pump every day. That’s why our second criteria is gas mileage. At an EPA estimated 54/50 mpg, the 2017 Toyota Prius is a top pick for fuel economy. This way, you have more money for the important things, like your all-nighter coffee supply, or your ramen noodle collection.

2017 Toyota Camry Quality and Reliability

Criteria 3: Durability

With the 2017 Toyota Camry rolling in awards such as the NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Rating, Best Midsize Car for the Money from U.S. News, and a Best Buy Award Finalist by Kelley Blue Book, it’s no wonder we chose the Camry as our top pick for our third criteria — durability. For college students, springing on a car means they need to get the most value for their dollar and the Camry definitely speaks to this need. In fact, 90% of all Toyota Camrys sold over the last ten years are still on the road today!
