School will be resuming soon. If you have college-bound children, this may be the time you purchase them their first vehicle. Did you know there are VW and Audi models suitable for young drivers? Learn of the top German cars for college students.
When it comes to beginner-friendly cars, compact sedans and hatchbacks tend to come to mind. However, we believe the two most important and often overlooked factors are safety and ease of handling. This is why we’re advocates of German automobiles for first-time car owners.
1. Volkswagen Passat
The VW Passat is a spacious family sedan with plenty of room in the back seat and generous trunk space. In addition, it also has relatively large windows, which reduces blind spots. The dashboard is also intuitive with simple controls. Its handling gives drivers the sense they can easily swerve in the event they need to suddenly change lanes.
2. Volkswagen Atlas
A three-row SUV isn’t exactly what comes to mind as a vehicle for young motorists. We included the VW Atlas, however, because the 2022 model received a perfect five-star rating in overall safety by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
3. Audi A4 – Q8
Three Audi vehicles made the 2022 Top Safety Pick award: the A4, A5 Sportback, and Q8. This is if the models are upgraded with LED headlights.
Parents also typically purchase a pre-owned car as their child’s first vehicle. Our inventory of vehicles for sale provides a small selection of reliable used German cars for college students.
