Top cars for students 2017
It’s just a matter of weeks until the new term starts for many students across the country. Whether you’ve decided to stay at home or venture a little further, a new set of wheels can often be a necessity rather than just a must have.
We’ve picked out our top pick cars for students that are reliable, efficient, look good, are fun to drive and won’t dwindle your student finance!
I bet when you clicked on this article, you weren’t expecting a brand spanking new car to be on the top of a car list for students? Well, you best believe it because the all-new SEAT Ibiza is our top pick and that’s because of two little words – Free Insurance! Yep, there’s currently one year’s free insurance available on the all-new Ibiza for over 18s, who have held their license for over a year!
You’d imagine it couldn’t get much better than that but it does! Besides free insurance, the all-new Ibiza is undeniably one of the most attractive new cars on the road (inside and out), it’s filled with cool spec and it was even voted as Auto Express’ Supermini of the year 2017.
More importantly, the new Ibiza was awarded a 5-star Euro NCAP rating and is fitted with lots of safety features including adaptive cruise control with speed limiter, intelligent air bag control, electronic stability control and it will even monitor the pressure of your tyres.
We couldn’t do a car list for students and not include this ultra-popular, retro city car.
The generously equipped, fuel efficient Fiat 500 comes in an assortment of colours, has low running costs and its small size and city steering makes it ideal for students living in urban areas as it’s super easy to park and can nip around city streets with ease.
Best of all, we now have a new batch of low mileage, 2017 Fiat 500 Lounge’s in stock and we’ve made them available on our fantastic 5 years 0% finance. This makes them uber affordable as you’ll not have to pay a deposit, a final payment or any interest! These usually sell out quick so don’t miss this brill offer.
An excellent alternative to a SEAT and Fiat 500, is the fun, trendy MG 3Form+. Why? Because it’s such amazing value for money!
It doesn’t come with free insurance but if you want to keep your insurance down and drive around in a brand-new car then this car is ideal for you!
The MG 3Form+ is exclusively available at SERE and comes with alloy wheels, cruise control, DAB radio, LED daytime running lights and Bluetooth audio streaming. It’s also available from £159 per month on 5 years 0% finance - which means you’ll not have to pay any mileage restrictions, interest or final payment.
If it’s not your first car, you can trade in your old wheels and receive a guaranteed £1,000-part exchange allowance which is used as your deposit and will save you even more money. Don’t worry, you won’t miss out if it is your first car as SERE will give you 3 years free servicing or the option to extend MG’s 3-year warranty to 5 years at no extra charge. So, whether you go for the servicing or warranty option, you’ll have extra peace of mind for roughly the same time as you’re away at uni.
