Best Honda Cars for College Students

Best Honda Cars for College Students

College is a milestone in a young adult’s life. Typically, it’s the first time you’ll get to experience life on your own. From choosing classes to decorating your dorm, everything is in your hands. Plus, with a reliable and stylish Honda by your side, you’ll be the talk of the campus.

At Northside Honda, we want to make your college experience even better with a new Honda. Which one is right for you and your San Antonio, Schertz, and Alamo Heights, Texas, commutes? Find out with our guide to the best Honda cars for college students below!

Honda Accord

Honda Accord

If you’re looking for a zippy, design-heavy sedan, the Honda Accord checks all of those boxes and more. As one of the most iconic sedans on the market, it’s the perfect model for making your first impression at college a notable one.

Thanks to its 192-horsepower 1.5L turbocharged engine, you can rule the streets for longer with a respectable EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway MPG with the LX and EX-L trim levels.* Plus, with standard Honda Sensing® driver-assistive technologies, like Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR), and more, your parents will feel better about you being out on your own.

Honda CR-V

If you’re looking for something a little sportier than a sedan, check out the Honda CR-V, a spacious midsize SUV that is ready for adventure.

Imagine finishing your homework and heading out to the local hiking trails on the weekend. With up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo volume, it’s a breeze to pack in all your gear. With seating for up to 5, you and your new college buddies can travel to a different study location seamlessly.

The CR-V also comes standard with Honda Sensing® driving aids and offers available all-wheel drive (AWD), which is perfect if you’re traveling to an area with snow for college.

Honda Civic

Honda Civic

Because we know how young adults love an eye-catching, make-a-scene type of model, another Honda sedan makes our list: the Honda Civic. This model is slightly smaller than the Accord, but offers style for miles and is perfect for fitting into that perfect spot in front of the History building.

The Civic comes equipped with a slew of high-end technologies, perfect for keeping safely connected while behind the wheel. This includes Bluetooth®, so your friends can connect and share their new band’s music. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are also available, allowing you to integrate your phone to access everything from maps to your contact list.

Plus, the Civic comes in a variety of bold colors that are perfect for college students. This includes Molten Lava Pearl, Rallye Red, and Aegean Blue Metallic.
