Browsing the Honda Models

While there are plenty of models out there to consider, there are a few that you may want to opt for based on the size, features, and performance.

Honda Civic

The Honda Civic is a great option for drivers who are seeking out a compact sedan to help you find the perfect street parking spot, as well as help you navigate congested lanes as you’re heading to class. The Honda Civic comes powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that comes mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission and boasts 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque.

It can seat five with some impressive cabin space, as well as 15.1 cubic feet of trunk space. The cabin also includes some impressive features and systems like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, which are available with the next trim level from the base. The Civic also comes in hatchback form if you’re looking for additional cargo space while retaining a compact body.

Honda Accord

If you’re looking for a sleek style and a larger bodied sedan, the Honda Accord can certainly accommodate your collegiate travels. The Accord packs a bit more of a punch with its performance. It also features a CVT, but it’s mated to the 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine which boasts 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque.

It also seats five passengers, but stretches the trunk space to 16.7 cubic feet of total cargo space. It even comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen display to use during your treks. The Accord also offers a hybrid option for eco-minded drivers.

Honda CR-V

Are you looking to add more space and adventures to your trips? The Honda CR-V may be what you’re looking for! This vehicle comes powered by a 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque-capable 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that’s mated to a CVT.

In terms of cabin space, it also seats five. However, it offers 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. If needed, you can fold down the second row to open up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space!

Honda Sensing® Features

Each of these Honda models that are deemed the best cars for college students all come standard with Honda Sensing® driver-assisting technology features. These features use exterior-mounted sensors that measure speed, proximity, and the lines in the road. If they detect an issue, they’ll provide a warning and some assistance to help you avoid an accident or mishap.

They include:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™– This feature detects a possible collision and issues a warning while using brake pressure. This helps to reduce the force of impact while giving you time to react and apply full braking pressure.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System– Recognizes when you’re veering out of your intended lane and uses a warning and selective braking to help prevent you from drifting further out of your lane.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow– This system lets you set your desired cruising speed and incorporates a safe distance from the vehicle ahead, which will then adapt to the flow of traffic without needing you to intervene.
