AutoTrader announced that the iconic Fiat 500 and the legendary Jeep® Wrangler have been named among its top-10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates. The editors over at AutoTrader considered both new and used vehicles that offer stylish looks, high-tech features, good fuel economy, or some combination of all three. One attribute they all have in common is affordable pricing.
Keeping practicality and affordability in mind, the editors at AutoTrader identified the 2012 to 2017 Fiat 500 and the 2012 to 2017 Jeep Wrangler as two of its 10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates in 2020. “At Autotrader, our goal is to help people navigate the car-buying process through our extensive lists of vehicles that suit consumers’ various needs,” says Brian Moody, executive editor at Autotrader. “With this in mind, we came up with a list of cars that offer both practical and affordable features recent college graduates should consider if they’re buying a car.”
AutoTrader stated that “A Fiat 500 can be a great little city car for college grads with an eye for style. This Fiat is a breeze to drive and park on urban roads thanks to its small footprint.” The car site also said “The Jeep Wrangler has a well-deserved reputation as an off-road icon. Surveys have shown that it’s one of the top dream cars in America and it’s more within reach than you might think.”
It makes sense to us. The Jeep Wrangler has won several awards based on its residual value, while the Fiat 500 offers praise for its ease to park, fun styling, and affordability.
