Different people have different needs, and cars are no exception. What kind of car you have is likely dictated by your lifestyle, age, and environment. For example, drivers who live in major urban areas often buy smaller sedans with high fuel efficiency to make it easier and more affordable to navigate densely populated roadways.

On the other hand, people with large families or who road trip often generally prefer larger SUVs or vans that are comfortable for more passengers and can accommodate large amounts of cargo. You’ll probably end up owning several different kinds of cars throughout your lifetime depending on what stage of life you’re in. In this blog, we’ll be focusing on the kinds of vehicles that work best for college graduate-aged individuals and young professionals.

Recent grads have a variety of needs that differ vastly from most drivers. Many young professionals are moving long distances, whether it be for leisurely travel, a new job, or a new apartment, and most of these situations require ample cargo space as well. A solid fuel economy is usually a factor to save on commuting. And it’s no secret that today’s young adults have a penchant for advanced and unique technologies that set a vehicle apart from the pack.

With that said, SUVs and crossovers tend to be a good choice for this demographic. One model on our lot at Gesswein Motors that would be a great fit is the 2019 Jeep® Compass, a fantastic compact SUV that hits on all the features new graduates tend to seek. Basic front-wheel-drive models of the new Compass SUV hit 23 MPG in the city and 32 on the highway, a competitive fuel economy in the SUV class. Rear cargo space of over 27 cubic feet expands to nearly 60 with the seats folded down, leaving plenty of space for moving essentials.
